The objective is a bit different in the case of "beltbag"
It is to remind us of a practice of yesteryear.
And be a reminder that average people can solve their own everyday problems in an adhoc manner.
The concept itself is not really a product but the promotion of a behavior.
We all have "beltbag". There is no need to purchase of course, just remember it is a possibility if ever in a pinch.
As well, our entry's tone is just as important as the concept itself.
There is something attractive about our character's nonchalance. Like he couldn't be bothered to bring a bag so his belt will just have to do. And of course he couldn't be troubled to study for that history test, so the inside of the belt is treated so he can jot down the answer he got from his buddy.
It is that casual indifference we all sought when we were 17. This nuance can be difficult to impart through a sterile hypershot rendering.

Oh no!!! nonono I completely misread this an apologize. For some reason I thought they were talking about the bag strapped to the head. The belt back was amazing with clever presentation and just enough neat innovation with some limitations in the name of that cool irony. Dang. Sorry.

As for the head-strap bag, the people in Papua have been doing it for a LONG time (couple thousand years. at least?). They seem to have no problem using them (I mean, they carry their babies that way, sometimes), but then again, they've had them a lot longer. Though one problem is that using them from an early age can slowly put small depression in the skull where the strap was...

True, I meant it more like...it's a new concept for.....or no...it's an old concept updated and used in a newcontext. And for the skull depression, lets just make the stap wide enough or PG-13;)

This is belated, but Thanks @ yo. Should we expect an entry from you this 1HDC?

Yeah. I wasn't trying to bash. I was, believe it or not, trying to support the concept you had come up with, while letting you know of some possible
flaws (and that it'd been done before, therefore it works
). I guess it just didn't articulate the way it was supposed to.

Hey, I like biabia's concept. It might just be a messenger bag, but being able to hang it on your chair is something that appeals to my inner OCD (cleanliness, not touching the dirty ground...).
Hs.wang's concept also interesting. Personally not something I'd wear around, but cool looking anyways. Though I'd hope that the pouches are fairly secure, as a tug from a slightly annoying friend or very annoying enemy/rival-type could possibly rip them off. Which I'm assuming is a bad thing...
marker's briefcase/satchel concept looks nice. But one question: Is the material hard or soft? Because if it's soft, then the A3 marker pad/book container could get pulled up and bend the pad and books. Maybe you already thought of that, but just thought I'd ask...
[Note: If anything I said SEEMS like bashing, it's not intended that way. I know I'm a noob, but I am merely trying to give suggestions so that if they consider actually constructing a prototype, or whatever, they'll have some feedback.]

The belt bag (peoples) and the burlap bag (mike) presentations seem to read really easy. I like how the images pretty much explain themselves. They're also very tastefully done. That said, I admire many others too.

I'm really down with Nourmalaeb's Velcrometre concept. As drawn it looks like the straps would fail pretty easily, smashing your precious cargo, but if you ran the straps 180 degrees (or 360) around the bag with velcro to velcro contact over one entire side of the bag for each strap I think you'd have a very feasible chance of this actually working. If any of you haven't experienced industrial strength velcro before, that stuff holds so well that sometimes it's hard to get it apart! For the messenger style you could run the strap around the sides and bottom, I think that would work quite well.
I really like the fun involved in it, being able to set it up any way you like, and the idea that at any given day your bag might not look quite the same as it did the day before. Also I think the constant little velcro noises it produces would be fun (maybe not in class tho as Ineo pointed out). This is the kind of thing I would definitely buy, even if i didn't use it on a day to day basis. Well done!

Hey mindsystem, ta for the approval of my design, was getting a bit worried therefore a minute it was going unoticed.
In regards to the material, oringally i had thought it would be made a hard soft material...... by that i mean outer fabric being somesort of tough leather reasonably thick and all inside fabric stitching to be soft.
I here what your saying about potenial bending of books and pads, tbh i've only found that with my A4 bag because my A3 marker pad doesnt fit and tends to droop over the side.
I had given thought to a a simple divide to hold the marker pad back but had run out of time to illustrate it up

Hey, belt bag is cool......But what size should I make this? I get an error message saying something like' tried to upload and empty file' or something like that. But the file is just a little large.

got it sorted

Just realised that [i]padavis[/i] also has a detachable pens/pencils part. Obviously great minds think alike.
Hope you don't think I just copied your idea, although it's a good one.

the nomad stick is really cool....It is not typical, and it is a throwback, like belt bag. I think it to be impractical for classroom use, but a good Idea non-the-less.
