i need a new record bag!


TRIBE Member
ok. so leaving NV onfriday the shoulder strap of my record bag snapped and my records spewed all over the street and me and jamie were pretty drunk so it was a messy scene.
i resorted to using the crappy backpack straps whcih are soo awkward on this bag...but made it home nonetheless.

then on sunday walking (to cheap to cab) to madbar the back pack straps snapped! i threw a tantrum. jamie got scared. fellow pedestrains looked tense.

now...since i got this bag for free from a jean machine staff bbq like 2 years ago, its not too surprising...in fact imimpressed it made it this far. but now im in the market for a new bag. i looked all over this darn city (well within a half hour radius of my house) and i cant find anything that exhibits all the characteristics im looking for..which are the following:

-primarily a backpack (i walk a lot)
-able to hold up to 70 records
-headphone pocket would be cool
-i saw a bag on the net where the front pannel zipped off and tilted down so you could flip though your records. that'd be neat.
-not too rediculously over priced
-and maybe id like it to look slick too

so anyways..the point of this exsesively long post is not just procrastinate doing homeowrk, but also to get some imput on where i should be looking for bags, in the city or on the net. or if anyone just loves their bag and thinks i should know about it...

Those TripleFiveSoul record bags are heavy duty, I've been using mine for like about 2 years now and nothing has broken yet.
and I can fit quite alot of records in there.

The bag can be converted from a backpack to a shouldertype record bag too.
The bag has lots of pockets too

look into dakine. where i used to work i was always in bag - heaven looking through their catalogues. sure the back backs are made for snow/wake/surfing, but they are sick and sturdy.
they also give the volumes that the bags are able to hold.
hope this is of some help at least

I would highly recommend the Oddysey bags. I have the Odyssey "Big Bag" with the foam insulated sides and top. Its also doubles as a chair. It holds about 200+ records when full but its more for storage than travel. They seem to hold up to just about anything.

I have a smaller Lithium mfg co bag that I use every day. Its sick and holds about 60 - 70 records and headphones and needles and some smaller stuff too. They are launching a bigger version in the spring.

I would recommend both of the two depending on the size you want.

Hey Jeremy, anywhere online I can find those Odessy bags? From what you say they sound really interesting and I'd like to check them out.

I am not a DJ but for some reason I have a record bag. It's a Burton bag. The story behind it is that I needed a backpack/bag for the New Year's party 1999-2000. I had to work all day waitressing at Jack Astor's in Etobicoke so I ran over to the mall just before it closed and bought it in Sporting Life at Sherway Gardens.

It has so many pockets and two areas to put your records. It has a shoulder strap, backpack straps and a suitcase type of handle. The really cool thing is that in the summer I drove Dj Dieselboy and MC Rage to the 3-day party and Damian (Dieselboy) commented on my bag saying he had the same one and loves it.

So, I can't speak for the durability other than it holds a lot of weight, good for carrying a laptop....but Dieselboy uses it so I guess it's good for records. You may not be able to find one but I noticed no one mentioned Burton so I thought that might help.
