Brain Bag backpack circa 1998

"I just wanted to say hi and that I'm so glad to see you're still making awesome bags. I bought my Brain Bag w/a laptop insert in 1998 from the Santa Cruz store, just before you closed it and moved. Well the bag took me through four years at UCSC, and we've since traveled the world. I'm about to take it to Australia, and realized that it has lasted longer than almost anything I own, and at the same time has been used more than almost anything I own. Color me amazed. The new bags look fantastic -- keep up the great work!"

TOM BIHN Brain Bags
This isn't Joe's Brain Bag, and though it's not quite as old as his is, it might give you a sense of how well our bags hold up over time.
