Crash Test Fashion

Designed to buffer drivers in collisions, airbags now serve another life-saving function, helping you hit the road in style. Repurposed airbags are used to construct these industrial-chic carryalls which are feather-light and extremely durable. Additional repurposed elements - like a strong seatbelt strap and a tough, but slightly stretchy, bike tube bottom - are seamlessly integrated into this stylish, over-the-shoulder carrier. 99% recycled. Handmade in Canada.

Comments about Airbag Tote:

I bought this for my husband to use commuting to NYC so he wouldn't have to use his nice leather one on the subway. It's a bit too small, or rather not wide enough to comfortably carry his files and a small lunch. The bottom part that's made with recycled bicycle tube is great but really does need to be wider. Also, a tad more blue (not powder blue) would make this nicer for a man, in my opinion. Otherwise a pretty cool item. Quality is very good.

What a unique up-cycle.

Pluses: Made in North America, recycled, attractive

Wanda

the name of this tote reminds me of another airline bag -- hmmm a different moniker maybe? and how about a wee Canadian flag for "Made in Canada" ?

Dee
Vote: Thumbs down!

Nicely designed. But, I must say that I'm not a fan of light-colored bags... They soil too easily and the fact that the description says "spot clean" makes me nervous.

good reuse. why not. 99 percent recycled, awesome!

Kathleen
Vote: Thumbs up!

Good re-use of materials just too bad the materials are not colorful or attractive.

Susan

eh...kinda boring and confusing. Most guys won't carry a light blue bag yet the strap is very masculine. Who's the target market? Steep pricing too.

If only it cost less.

I consider myself an environmentalist and applaud any attempt at reusing products, however there are many more creative ways to be environmentally friendly these days than these obvious ways.

a light colored bag shouldn't be "spot clean" only. also, i know recycled stuff tends to be on the expensive side, but this just doesn't seem to be worth the price.

good idea--a bit spendy tho

Ginger

I think it's overpriced.

overpriced

A little over priced though.

Marilyn

I agree with Elisa. A light colored bag shouldn't be spot clean only. Expensive to get dirty really fast.

i like it - but it's just a little too expensive

Christy

I appreciate the recycled materials, but do not care for the light colors for traveling.

Deborah

waaay overpriced.

recycled? from where? eek. no.

Ha! Totally cool!

Mari

Very expensive.

Jennifer

Really cute and clever, but too high of a price tag.

Catherine
Vote: Thumbs up!

Like the idea of the bag being another recycled product; however the cost is ridiculous.

NM
Vote: Thumbs down!

Very cute, love that it's upcycled. However, the light coloring makes it look far too feminine and is going to get very dirty very quickly for a "spot clean" item.

Stacy
Vote: Thumbs down!

I really do like this bag, but for only half the price.

LL
Vote: Thumbs up!

Cute but too expensive.

judith

like the suggestion about putting a wee Canadian flag in it. Very creative use of recycled materials. Does it hold a laptop or iPad?

Offer more colors.

Thanks for all of the great feedback that's coming in for this light-weight, heavy-duty bag! To answer your questions, the colors are original to the airbags. The tote is not dyed, and it is large enough to hold a laptop. Thanks for asking!

Love it. Love the colors too!
