The HoseWear Messenger Bag is Made of Repurposed Fire Gear

What happens to a fire hose that can be no longer used for fighting fires? HoseWear reuses it by turning it into a chic, sturdy messenger bag. Otherwise, this astonishing material would end up being burnt. Ironic, huh?

All of these fire hose bags have saved someone's or something's life during their first life, so every bag has a story. Some have fire hose serial numbers still intact, some have markings from firefighters and some are more worn out than others. All of this combined gives each bag a unique character and a great story to tell.

Why a messenger bag, one might ask. Well, because the modern consumer, just like a firefighter, doesn't have time to deal with many bags at a time.
