Iron Man Inspired Medium Messenger Bag: Genius Billionaire
Captain America: Big man in a suit of armor, take that away what are you?
Tony Stark: Uh, genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist
The bag would be perfect for convention wear, and would go with any comic book costume. It safely stores wallets, keys, even smuggle in a soda! The straps are fully adjustable, so you can wear it tight, up against your person for security, or as a longer, messenger-type backpack.
The messenger bag measures 9" in length by 12" in height (22.86cm x 30.48cm). The flap covers the front and is attached in the back by snaps. The bag has a main zipper closure pocket, with another smaller zipper pocket inside, along with a pouch for a cellphone, or keys. The front has a smaller, expandable zipper pocket, perfect for a paperback book, and flat zipper pocket right above that for extra security. There is also a zipper that runs along its entire side that you can unzip and get extra space. All total, with width can be up to 5-6", depending on how you stuff it (12.7-15.24cm). It's made of high-quality cotton canvas, with the flap of polyester. The straps are fully adjustable, so you can wear it tight, up against your person for security, or as a longer, messenger-type backpack.
The artwork is dye sublimated. This means that unlike silk screening, the ink becomes part of the fabric, so the artwork is permanent, and never fades, even with the most rigorous washing. The artwork has a black background, with Iron Man's arc reactor, with lettering in yellow.

My bag strap broke yesterday, but while I'm sad, I'm not that surprised. I knew the strap was wearing down, but hadn't taken the time to fix it. My bag was 6 years old. I got my bag at my first convention and used it as my purse ever since. I'm the one that has anything and everything in her bag: screwdriver, multi-tool, vice grips, pliers, electrical tape, notebooks, handfuls of pens, stuffed wallet, so many coins that sank to the bottom, and so much more. My bag regularly weighed at least 10-15 lbs and faithfully served me well. It went with me from my undergraduate years and got me through graduate school. I'd use it to take my glass containers of lunch to work and stash away sodas for later in the day. The only thing that annoyed me was the snaps kept coming undone, but large safety pins always fixed that. I write this review as I buy a replacement (lost the metal buckle when the strap broke). But I'm so glad my flap is still in as vibrant as the day I got it. I think I'll get the FMA bag this time, since the arm and a leg joke always makes me laugh. But I'll rotate between flaps. Thank you Nani?Ware for creating such a wonderful (and durable) product.
