Korean bag + accessory makers VAGX have been on our radar for a while now for their super tech bag designs, namely the backpacks. Here are some new(ish) items from the line, from basic black through to messenger bags with illuminating strips.

I’ve always had a pretty deep bag fetish, probably because I’m weird about always carrying certain things with me; water bottle, notepad/pen, disposable camera, pump/tools, hand sanitizer, etc. The market for technical packs is pretty over-saturated, so it takes a fine balance of functionality, originality, and style to make a line stand out from the rest. Korea’s VAGX looks fairly similar to Japan’s SAG in a lot of ways, but hasn’t quite hit the North American market with the same presence, giving it the luxury of exclusivity. I really like the 2010 collection they’ve recently released, with a wide range of backpack and messenger styles, compliment by accessories such as key clips and a mag light. Basic colourways, minimal branding, and what looks to be solid functionality definitely make VAGX worth a look if you’re in the market to upgrade your bag rotation. Hit the jump for more images.
