My wife found this bag over at Steve Madden, NY. It's a prototype bag of some sort. She got it for me because it looked liked an Indy bag. It even has a label inside that says, "SAMPLE"... Hehehe.

It's canvas and has a similar color to most Mark VII bags I see on the site. It's roughly the same size based on the measurements written on a card I saw inside the bag. It originally had "leather" straps to close the bag (which I took out).

I installed Todd's strap on it. I'm gonna find a place where I can have snap buttons installed to be able to close the bag and sort of finish the look.

Here's my old close-enough bag:

The old bag is bigger and made of cotton. Although I like the functionality of the old one, I may start using the new bag because it's smaller.

That's not bad at all. I agree, captures the look quite well.

Hey, that's pretty cool! Better hug your wife for that one!

Just thought I'd drop this one here, instead of starting a new thread- at the House On the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin, they have a section devoted to assorted military gear, ranging from deep sea diving knives to torpedoes and a miniscule gas mask bag section!

(The bag in the first two pics is the same, just from two angles.)

Nice find! I love seeing bags that are "close enough". Always interesting to see bag variations! Thanks for posting!
