Sling Bags and the Movies

    Hello All,
    Watched the movie, Cleanskin with Sean Bean. Interesting movie with lots of twists. British, so one has to listen carefully to the dialog. However, Bean's character was using and wearing a large black sling bag (unknown make) and hauled, what seemed to be all of his earthly possessions in it.

    I believe the sling bag utilized in a movie is something new in recent films. What have you noticed?
    Thanks for your comments.

    Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeuf) uses a Maxped Sitka in Transformers 3.

    There's always that episode of 24 where Jack wears a Maxped Monsoon.

    Just watched the imdb trailer, looks good, will add it to my lovefilm list.

    Did the movie/sling bag fad start with the first transformers movie? I seem to remember eBay being full of knock offs after that and then it seemed like the market exploded.

    I think on of the soldiers in Transformers used a SO Tech Go Bag. It was the African American one played by Tyson Somethingorother

    I guess sling type bags have been around for a long time. Watched the movie The Seven Samurai and many of those dudes were wearing
    small sling-type bags.

    I was hugely disappointed with 'Cleanskin' after being quite excited for it.

    I just came back from seeing Iron man 3, and there is a scene where Tony makes his way into the mansion wearing a sling pack. I could not get a good look at it, so anyone know which pack it is?

    In season 7 he uses a Versipack of some kind. Don't know which one in particular.

    Joseph Gordon Levitt also uses a Kodiak in Inception.

    I noticed that too, but not which one. Funny though I remember that it was basically flat, as if just coming out of the box from shipping.
