Many years ago, Wested Leather Co managed to source a limited quantity of never issued Genuine Gas Mask Bags.
The bags were all Indiana Jones MK VII dating from 1941-1942.
As you can imagine these bags are no longer available and they cannot be sourced anymore as they have now run out.
Wested Leather decided that due to high demand we would invest heavily and have them re-produced for our customers.
With the original genuine version, a lot of people were having issues with the webbing breaking on the bag where the leather strap attached due to their age. This is no longer a problem as this is now new webbing and reinforced.
So, the New Gas Bag is an exact copy of the original bag with the same hardware and vents etc which have been reproduced for us.
These bags have also been stamped inside the flap just like the originals for the same authenticity.
Inside the gas bags they have a lot of different compartments and pockets
(6 in total) for your books and a small water bottle or drink’s pocket.
They will look great with any Indiana Jones outfit, and you won’t be disappointed in these bags.
This listing is for the bag and the leather strap already fixed so your ready to go.

Reunited with an old companion
At least two decades ago I bought an MKVII bag from MBA Costumiers' Noel Howard. It went with me on many adventures around the globe and I always regretted not buying two from Noel. When he passed away I thought I would never find a bag as good as those of Noel's. But I was wrong.
A few years ago my bag got infected with mold after I had a water leak in my former house and I didn't notice the bag was in that room. Gutted about this I had to throw it away. I never replaced it until now, and I regret not replacing it earlier. The quality Wested provides as of a high level and the bag they sent me yesterday was just like my old one. I felt I was reunited again with an old companion, an old friend I haven't seen in years. I want to thank the Wested crew for sending me a great item during these difficult times for everyone. When I got some more funds, I might get a second one. If the stock lasts of course.
Bolso Indiana Jones
Precioso bolso de Indiana Jones, el mio en particular es del año 1942 y esta en perfecto estado. Exactamente igual que el de las peliculas de Indy. Y Wested perfecto, entrega muy rapida, menos de una semana. Informacion del envio muy detallada. Muy contento con la compra. Muchas gracias
It's definitely a testimony to the awesomeness of a product when someone buys it again. I bought my first Indiana Jones bag almost two years ago from Wested and totally love it, but, because I travel between California and DC often, I got tired of taking it back and forth, so I recently bought a second one to keep in California.
My new bag just arrived and unfortunately because it's so old the little stitching that held the strap ring ripped within an hour of use. I sent Wested an email and within ten minutes they already have a replacement bag packaged up and on its way to me. I have had numerous email exchanges with Wested and they always respond promptly and professionally. I'm a happy customer -- will definitely purchase other products from you guys!
My bag dates from 1942!!! It looks like it's been well stored over the years. It's just what you want; doesn't look brand new but doesn't look like it's been half eaten by moths and sitting in a puddle! Very happy and the leather strap even comes complete with instructions showing how to attach it to the bag.
