THE PARACHUTE BAG
Shown here in Cobalt Blue with Navy trim, the Parachute Bag is another timeless classic which we are making available outside of our sail loft store for the first time. This bag is both roomy and stylish. You will find this bag is great for daily use if you need more than a messenger bag or briefcase. We use this bag to carry a laptop and photo equipment (including a tripod), with room to spare for a change of clothes. A cross-over from mega-briefcase to weekend bag; it holds a lot, yet it has a shape that is not copied in a thousand other places. Go forth in style with this bag on your shoulder.
Constructed from #8 cotton duck canvas, and machine washable...over and over. In time it will fade somewhat and take on a "soft shouldered" look, like an old friend. A 20 year life is not unheard of with this bag and we know because we have been making it that long. Interior flaps and pockets help keep you organized. On each end you will find a pocket for cell phone storage or an I-pod if you wish. You can carry it with the hand straps or with the shoulder strap, valise style. Because we make each bag for you, you can also specify the trim color you want. Just use the drop-down menu below when ordering. When ordering trim please be advised that the trim color specifies the webbing, and zipper color. The webbing and bag are sewn with thread to match the webbing (trim) color you select.
Of course, you get the same quality and attention to detail that comes with every Wm. J. Mills & Co. bag. What would you expect from a 130 year old sail loft. Our master sewers make each bag their own, before we ship it to you. This bag is available from our website in the colors below for Fall 2010 with popular trim options as well. See your local retailer as well as he may have special color options available.
