Mister Freedom® Laptop Haversack, NOS denim
As you might know, we are so very Hi-Tech around here…
Our R&D department was given the mission by High Command to design a simple haversack to carry interweb computing machines in the field. Mission accomplished.
In other words, we made a new bag.
Its versatile size (approx 15” x 10” x 1.5”) allows our MF® denim haversack to house an average laptop computer, if designed post 1975. MacBook Air®, MacBook Pro® 15”, iPad® etc… will slide in easily and go to sleep in a warm and soft corduroy inner lining. The strap is not adjustable, feature that is often an overkill on shoulder bags. A zip-up outer pocket will hold charger, USB, iPod and/or other supplies.
Our haversack is NOT shockproof, nor is it waterproof. So if you have an urge to boil it (?) make sure your computer is not inside. It’s perfect however to haul around or store your portable computer gear while about town or travelling.
We used assorted New Old Stock selvedge denim for the outer part. The 100% cotton corduroy lining is similar to that used as pocket ‘hand warmer’ lining on older 10 button USN Peacoats. The shoulder straps are made from US military webbing, a New Old Stock from 1966. The grey closure cotton woven canvas straps are recycled vintage military accoutrements parts. The zippers we used are vintage NOS 1960s-70s “Serval” metal zipper, with cotton HBT taping.
There are NO overlocked seams (the low road we always thrive not to take, which makes a bag construction somewhat of a challenging puzzle), all clean seams inside and out, with a concealed use of the denim selvedge.
Designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in limited quantities, until NOS supplies last.

Note: I customized my perso Haversack, added NOS 1950’s military canvas pouches for charger/cables storage. Made an iPad (thank you Santa-Tina) NOS denim insert padded sleeve also. I included a photo, but this is NOT how production comes. Just an example of our you can adapt and customize your gear to your own needs.
