If we’re lucky, people maintain social distancing and remember their masks, then we’ll get to go outside again. We’ll get to visit friends for D&D and tabletop RPG evenings. We’ll get to go to gaming conventions, comic stores and board game cafes.
I have memories of bags being significant for outdoor life. You need bags to put your hardback D&D manuals in and carry them to friends. You need bags to bring home your purchases from FLGS. You need bags so you can spend too much money at your local con and be forced to guard them worriedly after you have to pop out to the nearby pub with friends right afterwards.
It also helps to be able to signal to fellow geeks that you’re part of the tribe. It’s much easier finding a D&D game, for example, if people can tell that you’re a D&Der at a glance.
Hot Topic, the American store that mashes up pop and geek culture with affordable fashion has a bag that might be of interest.
The Dungeons & Dragons Red Crossbody Bag is 6 3/4″ by 9″ and with a really long and adjustable strap.
The clue, of course, is in the name. This is a bag that’s designed to be worn across the body so that the weight of heavy gaming books can be more evenly distributed.
The bag is polyester, and while that’s not a glamourous material, it is easy to clean and look after.
The image on the bag is the front cover from Dungeons and Dragons Art and Arcana: A Visual History.
Hot Topic usually charges $14.90 for the crossbody bag, but it is currently reduced to $11.92.
Tempted? Pop over to Hot Topic to buy the bag.
