Grown Up Geek Messenger Bag Success

As some of you know, I've been looking for a grown-up messenger bag to replace my FMA bag. Even though I scoured my fave online geek and otaku stores and made a short list, none of them were screaming, "Take me home." Until last week. Last week, I stopped off at one of our local gaming stores, Imaginary Wars to pick up dice for my studio. I spied a Princess Leia purse. When the manager asked if I was looking anything specific, I inquired about grown up messenger bags. He pulled up the Chewbacca messenger bag.

From the understated brown colour to the embossed Star Wars logo, it oozes "grown up". However, to a geek, the strap is instantly recognizable.

The inside is pretty roomy as well. Decent pockets. Big enough to fit my netbook or my choir books and binders. Sturdy.

One of the things that sold me on this bag was the pockets. Photo by R-M Arca.

It's a keeper!

If your local geek store doesn't carry it, you can buy the Star Wars Chewbacca Messenger Bagon Think Geek (click on link) or Amazon.
