NASA Mercury 6 messenger bag is designed to celebrate Mercury-Atlas 6 and John Glenn’s Earth-orbiting flight aboard the Friendship 7. Want to add some retro aesthetics from the astronaut space suit in the 60s? Let’s have a look.
This is a well-designed and practical messenger bag inspired by NASA’s Friendship 7 mission. The bag measures 17 x 12 x 3-1/2 inches and weighs 1-1/2 lbs. As we can see from the images, the messenger bag shows off retro space aesthetics defined by design elements from Mercury astronaut’s silver pressure suits, and the black seat belt straps not only keep your stuff firmly in place, but also provide more detailing. Meanwhile, there is a Mercury 6 mission patch on the outside of flap, a flag patch is on one side, while the “United States” stencil is on the reverse.
With a large main compartment, the messenger bag can hold your all daily essentials including books, documents, wallet and more, and the padded laptop/tablet sleeve securely holds your mobile devices with an elastic strap. Furthermore, a small pocket and two pen holders are arranged under the flap for your pens and some small items. An external zipped pocket holds some frequently used small items like transportation card, house key and more. In addition, the crossbody strap adjusts from 14-25″ drop for a custom fit, and the top handle allows for easy grab-and-go action and convenient hanging.
The Mercury 6 messenger bag is priced at $69.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to ThinkGeek for its more details.
