OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Bachelor Barf Bag

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Bruce Kelly
This bag is Bachelor Party Tested and Approved! I'm not sure who tested and approved it, but I'm certain they were thorough. Has a picture of a guy with his face in the sack.

Bachelorette Barf Bag

Bachelorette Barf Bag

Approximate Vintage: 2005
This is really more of a gift bag than a barf bag, but it says on the front, "Bachelorette Gift Bag Before Midnight" and on the back "Bachelorette Barf Bag After Midnight". So I had to have it.

Wow, could they be any less specific?

Balair

Approximate Vintage: 1985
Received From: Albert Oosenbrug
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue, Silver
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag reflects the pre-merger days of Balair, before joining with CTA. This is a Swiss bag that was actually made in Switzerland.

A very slick design. While at first glance, this seems like a very plain bag, open the folds and the bag is yellow! You can see it bleed over into the bottom portion of the bag. Talk about attention to detail.

Balair

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Balair has come full circle. From their mid-90's merger with CTA, in which they trashed the classic Balair bag in favor of a film processing bag to their current offering with the CTA part completely excised. Not to mention that they now also offer a Foto-CD, in keeping with the times.

Balaircta

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Thomas Blickle
Balair and CTA merge and decide to put out a film processing bag eerily identical to Crossair. If you understand French, you'll see that Belcolor Fabfoto has been in business for 25 years. On subsequent bags, you'll see it gets upped to 27, 28, and eventually 30.

Also notice that the bag features 3 photos. The Beach photo disappears in 1999, then in 2000 the Matterhorn photo is replaced by the beach photo.

Most colorful of all the film offer type bags. I have to hand it to the Swiss. They have the best designers. I give this bag extra points for not using English in their film offer.

Balaircta

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Bruce Kelly
"This looks exactly like the other Balaircta photo bag", I hear you cry. But look closer. Immediately obvious is that they replaced the photo of the Matterhorn with a photo of a tropical beach. Not that BalairCTA flies to anywhere that has a beach with palms or anything.

Also, Bruce Kelly notes that both Balair and Crossair have 5 film offer bags. I only seem to have 3 of the Balaircta bags at the moment. In this particular bag, the film company has been in business 28 years. Alternate bags exclaim 25 years (I only have this one in Crossair), 27 years (2 different versions -- one with APS [whatever that is], one without), and 30 years. Some day, I'll add progression information to the site.

Bali Air

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Susi Hopkins
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy, Purple
A beautiful and bold bag with an abstract bird on the front and minimal instructions on the back that don't work. See, the bag is plastic and folding it over after use as specified does nothing as anyone who has ever used plastic bags can attest to. Luckily, there's a twist tie inside. Still, nice colors!

Balkan

Received From: Bob Turner

This bag SCREAMS "Soviet Bloc". Has Cyrillic writing with a flying Communist star. If you feel inside the bag, it sure doesn't seem very water resistant. Identical to other bag except the color scheme here is a Soviet star on a Red field and Navy print instead of vice-versa.

Get out of the way! An enormous battalion of Balkan airplanes are flying your way. Better duck when you throw up or they'll get you.

Flimsy bag that could not possibly hold the contents of Bulgarian Weightlifter Claude Bonk's stomach.

Unremarkable Bulgarian bag with a little green and red ribbon that makes this bag seem like you're having a party when you throw up. You aren't though.

They changed the logo so they had to print up new bags!

A rather boring Balkan offering sent by the former Yankee 2nd baseman. The gusset says the bag is actually printed in Bulgaria by Advertising Agency Maxim Prestige Ltd.

Dull bag that gives you instructions on both sides but the airline name only appears on the reverse side of the bag upside down.
