Vintage Indiana

I’m sure my Grandad had one of these, but he wasnt carrying no laptop. No, the only thing he wanted was one of these going by the flyer in it..

I’d like to see him do that with liquid nails

How things have changed. Now you can put your laptop, books, phone, flux capacitor, and even your Indiana Jones whip in it all whilst fosicking for the lost ring of the Inca’s. 
This is the s-zone vintage laptop messenger bag that whilst it looks awesome it actually works well as a practical laptop bag for College students. Its made with Superior cowhide crazy horse leather (is it a horse, or a cow?), masterfully sewed with durable and rugged wash canvas. It’s surprisingly lightweight and a steal for the look and durability.
