Out of Retirement.

Just because flattened tires have reached the end of the road doesn't mean they don't still have plenty of mileage left in them! Resulting from a concern for the environment and a little creativity, these re-inspired tires are tough enough to haul it all whenever you need to get rolling. Each extremely durable and water resistant tote is quality crafted from reclaimed truck tire inner tubes to make a statement and a difference: Every one-of-a-kind piece is handmade in a job skill workshop by people with disabilities or limiting conditions. Because what goes around comes around. Handmade in Wisconsin.

    Comments about TUBE MESSENGER BAG:

    Great as a stocking for 28, 30 and 30+ yr olds.
    They loved the idea of reuse tires and thought of all the ways they would us them. Keeping the car organized, gym bag, lunch bag and cool shopping bag to name a few.

      Comments about TUBE MESSENGER BAG:

      For my brother, potentially for the gym. I'm hoping the bag gets less stinky after it airs out. He won't be able to use it if it doesn't, hoping I'm not assuming too much. I want to give more stars but not sure about this.

      Comments about TUBE MESSENGER BAG:

      This is a very nice bag. When I started using it, I got many compliments. I would like more compartments. The bag did seem durable. I was carrying the bag one day and it fell apart. The strap just came off. I don't know if I can get it fixed or not because I'd like to get it fixed, I do like the bag. I don't know what happened, I didn't have much in the bag and it basically just fell apart. I still would reccommend this bag, I'd just like to find a place that can repair it.

              Be sure to let it out-gas if you're concerned about the smell of rubber in a small venue. The bag is great looking and durable but definitely has a rubbery odor fresh out of the box.

                  I just wanted to revise my review on the above CON comment about the bag not having a bottom to flatten it out. I added one and quickly removed it simply becasue it didn't need one. The more I use this bag, the more I love it!
