Contax G Goldpfeil Bag (For Sale?)

This bag is a real gem, I can’t believe I’m still using it after decades. It’s very functional, with four pockets/spaces for pens, cameras, paper and I can actually fit a 13-inch Macbook Pro in too, as well as the Contax G and three lenses. Or a Leica M, or Q2, etc. Beautifully made, lovely soft leather. Sadly, Goldpfeil bit the dust some years ago and is now just a name brand stuck onto some leather goods not made in Germany and not related to the original. I loved my bag so much that I actually bought a second bag and it’s sat here all this time, I’ve never even taken the padding material out.

The new bag next to my daily driver

I suppose that someone else should own it. If you’re an actual Contax lover and bag lover and want to buy it, get in touch.

Looking inthe strap has never been attached to its hooks.

Ah, we’ve been together almost twenty years and it’s been returned to full active duty by simply replacing a €4 bungee cord. After all this time, #boblbee still make this bag, and still sell all the spare parts for it. The shell, the side rails, harness, cover, nuts, bolts, all the accessories, everything. They’re called #point65 now, but #megalopolis is one of my favourite bags. #millenniumedition #bag #motorbike #backprotector #scars

This is a particularly outstanding #boblbee also from the early 2000s, originally a water pack but hopeless, so I threw away the water bladder and stashed the bag. Turns out it’s amazing for everyday use. It fits between your shoulder blades and feels weightless on your back, by not hindering your movements. Limited capacity helps that too. #fabulous. #bag #backpack #cool #Sweden #design

Bag time. I haven’t carried this #boblbee #megalopolis in years and years, but it’s great for my current stack of gear. This was my second bag, after the first one was destroyed in a motorbike crash, and it has its own massive scrape from another motorbike crash. Neither my fault. Great for posture, great for protection, and #MadeInSweden back in the early 2000s. This is the #millennium edition. #bag #backpack
