This Repurposed Parachute is Your New Favorite Bag

Whether you're tossing in gym stuff, an extra pair of shoes, or a small load of laundry, the Killspencer Parachute Bag is the perfect small bag for your everyday needs. In its previous life, it was an Air Force BA-22 ejection seat parachute, so this thing has a proven track record of keeping things safe.

Aside from the venerable BA-22 nylon that's proven itself since its introduction in the sixties, these bags feature a leather pull handle with the Killspencer logo to cinch everything up. Respecting their heritage, these bags are remade in the U.S.A. in Killspencer's Los Angeles workshop.

You may have to adjust your lifestyle to earn the right to use a bag like this. It has done some pretty baller stuff.
