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.

hnair (Hainan Airlines)

Received From: Xusheng Chen
Print or Image Color: White, Gray
Background / Bag Color: Gray, White
I've classified this bag as hnair, but it's really Hainan Airlines, which I guess is the same thing.

hnair (Hainan Airlines)

This bag has a phone number, a picture of a mouse and the abstract jumping jack logo.

Ho Ho Ho Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Red, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Yes, it's only a sticker on a bag, but barf bag collector, Gerhard Lang sent these out as Christmas cards in 2008, so I had to include it!

Hong Kong Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Red, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This plastic bag is "Water-proofed". Since the bag is already plastic, I wonder what secondary compound they treated it with.

Hong Kong Airlines

Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gold
This bag is really crowded with text in poorly contrasting colors.

Hong Kong Airlines / Hong Kong Express

Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gold
This bag is really crowded with text in poorly contrasting colors. It appears to serve on two differently branded airlines: Hong Kong Airlines and (turn it over) Hong Kong Express, each with different logos.

Honggi Suian Express

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Collectors rejoice everywhere! Here is a bus company that has its schedule printed on the back. That means that any time a change is made to the schedule they should re-print the bag. A bonanza for collectors. Perhaps this wasn't a bad management decision. Perhaps people throw up so often on this bus line that re-printing is no big deal.

Horror Society Film Festival

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: MD Wells
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Brown, White
Yet another cheap sticker on a bag. However, this one was distributed at the actual Film Festival in Chicago on Columbus Day Weekend, 2008.

Hostel Part II

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Black, Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This is ostensibly some kind of Quentin Tarantino film, but I don't know why this one deserves a barf bag any more than any of his other productions. Anyway, Eli Roth's Hostel part II is an Australian production. The bag has all sorts of stuff printed on it such as Travel Safety Tips (that appear to be serious) as well as a chance to win a Sony camera & printer, merchandise, collectable posters, & movie tickets just for going to the website.

Hot Shots 2

Approximate Vintage: 1993
Received From: Jörg Gerle
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Yet another cheap sticker on a bag, but I'm not too upset since the word Kotzbeutel (Spitting Bag) appears on this German version of the Hot Shots Part Deux movie promotional item.

Hover Craft

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Petr Manda
Print or Image Color: White and Blue
Background / Bag Color: Blue and White
This Japanese hovercraft has an interesting recycle symbol. It's polyethylene, but it's hard to determine whether it's high or low density. Nice italics on company name.

Hover Lloyd

Received From: Dean Eckert
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Although I can only imagine that a hovercraft is a water borne vehicle, Hover Lloyd apparently employed stewardesses. So tell me, is this an airline or a ship line?

Hover Speed

Received From: Jo Boyd
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is almost identical to the current Hover Speed bag, except the horizontal laminar lines don't go to the end of the bag, like they do in the current version.

Hover Speed

Received From: Graham
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Perhaps they meant to call it 'Hoover Speed'? The speed at which you Hoover down the food.

I had originally listed this as one of the Air Sickness Bags, but Thomas Payne pointed out that, "The Hover Speed bag should be in the sea-sickness section, not air. They operate hover-craft services from Dover to Calais (Uk to France), and believe me, a lot of those bags get used, especially when the sea is rough! Its so bumpy you cant drink a cup of tea without spilling it down yourself!

Hover Craft guru Lamar Bordelon says, "The Hovercraft is the funny looking thing that floats on a cushion of air just above the surface of either land or water. The ones carrying people and cars between England and Europe have two large motor-driven fans which blow the air under the craft, and another two fans which propel it along. There is a huge neoprene skirt around the outer edges of the craft to hold the air cushion in as the craft lifts and floats above the surface. (As you might imagine, it needs fairly smooth surfaces to travel over, which is why it didn't get much acceptance as a mode of transportation by the military). You can find a lot about them by going straight to HoverSpeed at here".

HTF

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Maria Mirsch
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
Collector Thomas Homer Goetz alerted me to, and explained this bag. Here is his explanation:

On September 1, 2004 there were protests in Sweden and UK against Ryanair's personalpoltics. The demonstrations were a part of an international campaign with Ryanair to reach (better) basic conditions for transportation workers. The swedish transportation workers union HTF got printed and distributed special printed barfbags on the occasion of the demonstration.

I read an article about that in the German newspaper Sueddeutsche, and one with a picture of the bag in the swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. There are also pictures of the bag and informations (in swedish) on the HTF website.

Human Centipede 2

Approximate Vintage: 2011
Received From: M Trebilcock
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Great bag from the not so great movie, The Human Centipede 2. The bag was signed in person by Laurence R. Harvey, at the Mercury Cinema, Adelaide, South Australia.

The bag says

VOMIT BAG
[For use during moments of upset]
If vomit is anticipated, keep bag ready for use. Please dispose of correctly after use. One use only.
"Sick"
THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE PART 2
[FULL SEQUENCE]

Humane Society

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Gray
The cruel greedy bastards in Canada are planning to slaughter 975,000 baby seals this year. In response, the Humane Society issued this bag as part of its response to the cruel travesty.

Hummingbird

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Aww, cute. Nice image for an airline -- lithe, supple, and darts around the sky.

Hurl Bag!

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Green, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
I have no idea what the origin of this bag is, but it probably has something to do with Wayne's World, not only because it's a Hurl bag, but also because the bottom says "Party Time" and "Excellent"

Hurl Bag!

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Pink, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
I have no idea what the origin of this bag is, but it probably has something to do with Wayne's World, not only because it's a Hurl bag, but also because the bottom says "Party Time" and "Excellent". Exactly the same as the other Hurl Bag, except this one is pink, not green.
