The Original Seatbelt Bags

Let me get straight to some interesting specifications:

  • Genuine flight satin, as used by the U.S. Airforce to produce flight jackets
  • Real-life seatbelt material, capable of withstanding strains of 5,000+ lbs of tension
  • YKK zippers, the smoothest on the market
  • Nylon 69 stitching, NASA-approved and meets government specs VT95
  • Italian chrome-plated feet
  • Powerful magnetic snap

What sounds like a handbook for either a level-3 kevlar vest that 50 Cent would wear, or some fancy high tech gadget that has top secret gov’ment clearance (cuz it’s just so damned fancy), is indeed nothing but a boring, ol’ handbag.

Actually, it’s anything but boring. It’s a brilliant symbiosis of materials and application, it’s the Seatbelt Bags from Harveys Industries Inc. The patented bags come in a vast variety of shapes, sizes and colors. With messenger bags, totes, baguette bags, overnighters, clutches, in mini, large, or XXL, and 10 different shades, you are facing thousands of different varieties. Fabulous! Prices for the cool bags start at $60 and go up to $150, available at Zappos.com.

Thanks for highlighting the seatbelt bags!

They’ve been around for quite a while, and I’ve coveted them terribly. Many funky gift stores carry them because of the novelty, but they are nice bags. I’ve seen lots of ladies on the streets carry them to perk up a conservative business wardrobe.

I think these purses are terribly novel, however, impractical…they’re just too heavy!

Heavy they may be, but they sure won’t budge any load, that’s for sure. 🙂

I have a seatbelt bag, and yes, it’s a bit heavy, but I love it. I get compliments on the street often. I want to get another, bigger one.

I have a knock-off bag . I got it at a local (Santa Fe Springs) in southern cali. swapmeet. You could try outlets. Ask around from other venders. It looks a lot like the real ones but the only difference I think is that the knock off ones dont have the little 5-columns on the seatbelt strap. Its just black checkered Nylon they come on many colors. !Hope you find one and they are cheap too!! mine is a large executive tote for only 25 dollars!! in a variety of colors. Mine is black.

I just had a patient come in today with one. She got it at the Gault Flea Market (central valley town) it was a multicolored one that was toooo cute! $20! That’s what made me come home and get on the web to look. Good luck!

I found a blue seatbelt bag yesterday at Goodwill for $2.50!!! I have seen these bags around, but never owned one myself.. I went home and checked it out and it is authentic. It has the original “Harveys” Tag. I looked online and it retails for $92.00. I was going to sell it on Ebay- I was wondering what price I should ask for it??
Thanks!
