Sweet Recycled Messenger Bag

Orin over at Scootin Old Skool recently posted about these messenger bags from Alchemy Goods. I'm going to need a new bag soon, and these have just risen to the top of my list.

I could laundry list the bags' features, but, well heck, the folks at AG have already done it:

Wicked-durable strap made from two RECYCLED seatbelt straps sewn together
100% waterproof exterior constructed from RECYCLED inner tubes
Multiple internal pockets for books, packages and other items
Internal cell phone pocket sits inside the bag, so it’s easy to hear and totally accessible
T-strap stabilizes load while cycling
Zippered front pocket for wallet or MP3 player
High quality reflective tape for added safety
Internal key clip for bike lock keys or house keys
13 x 8 x 11 inches (and expandable)
Priced at $148

That price is about average for a quality messenger bag, and these look to probably be even more durable. One of the first things to go on cheaper bags I've had has been the waterproofing, which kind of flakes and chips away. I imagine a Timbuk 2 or Chrome bag's lining would last longer than that, but this puppy will be waterproof forevah. I'm intrigued.
