You can get the back one from Revolve for under $300, and I think that you can even use a coupon to bring it down to close to $250. Vintage map bags are tough to come by. Before, say, 2002, they were not so hard to find, but nowadays, vintage buyers working for Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie, etc... are buying up anything remotely good. The good thing about a new bag is that you will be sure that no rot has set in, and you can treat the leather and keep it supple and moist from the beginning.

Cool idea, but I can imagine a hundred sufu kids lugging those and ruining the novelty. Cool nonetheless.

I'm going to get a messenger bag when I get one of these :p I think you might be able to toss it in there. Definitely a more stylish way to carry around your computer than most laptop cases.
