"It's a little bumpy about here"
Although we grew up during the Space Shuttle era, we have great admiration for the capsule era of the U.S. space program. The people working on these missions were pioneers, sending us where clearly the human body was not designed to go.
Now, John Glenn didn't get to bring a messenger bag up with him, but you totally should because you never know what's going to be out there. We mean, he knew even less, but it's not like he had a choice, right? You have a choice. Bring your stuff with you in this messenger bag that celebrates the Mercury-Atlas 6 and John Glenn's Earth-orbiting flight aboard the Friendship 7. With a retro space aesthetic, reminiscent of Mercury astronauts' silver pressure suits, and black seat-belt straps to keep your stuff firmly Earthbound, it's ideal for holding your desalter kits, dye marker, distress signal, signal mirrors, signal whistle, first aid kits, shark chaser, PK-2 raft, survival rations, matches, and radio transceiver should your ride be late.
