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.

Carpatair

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Green, Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
Bold green design with a picture of the mountains you hope your airline won't crash into.

Caspian Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Philipp Weber
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Huge bird of paradise graces this plastic bag that's apparently from some Arab country. On the bag, the tape mechanism has the enigmatic 24/7/2003, which is either around-the-clock 2003 times, or the date on which it was produced.

Castle Freak

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Xaver Wittmann
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Germany jumps on the splatterfest sickbag idea with Stuart Gordon's Castle Freak. Schizophrenic bag that can't decide whether it wants to be German or English. I am only guessing that the bag's date is 1995 because if you hold it up to the light, you can barely see '10/95' printed in the gusset.

Cat Cocos Seychellen Ferry

Received From: Jan Jendrzejek
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is my favorite ferry bag from all of the Seychelles. I'm not sure why there printed 4 molars atop a splat of vomit, but they did. Confusion arises if you look at the back of the bag, which shows a cartoon airplane with the words "Air Supply avaition products", a Singaporean company.

Cathay Pacific

Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Purple
A bold, striking purple bag from Cathay Pacific, from the days before swirlies.

Cathay Pacific

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
The turbulent waves on this bag, reminiscent of a roiling sea or the contents of your stomach, looks like a swirlie precursor.

Cathay Pacific

Background / Bag Color: White and Purple
The turbulent waves on this bag, reminiscent of a roiling sea, looks like a swirlie precursor. Odd Op-Amp/Diode looking logo.

Cathay Pacific

It's so lightly colored, subtle and understated, it doesn't even seem like you threw up. Nice swirlies.

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Linda Weber
Same as prior model, except there are far fewer 'swirlies'.

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Received From: Kurt Fischer
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Cathay boldly adds more swirlies and moves them around, all for no apparent reason!

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Ken Costilow
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue
Cathay's bags are VERY light. The master of understatement in air sickness bags

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue
New closing mechanism! I sure miss the swirlies though.

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2000

In their tireless effort to improve their product, Cathay Pacific adds Fold Lines to the back, but it would take precise skills that only people who paint your name on rice possess, to be able to successfully make two folds that are only 3/8" apart.

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Garnier Fabrice
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: Light Gray
Cathay added the words, "Please protect your environment, use this bag only when appropriate". I guess this means that it costs them money if you use it as a trash bag, writing pad, or *gulp* for your collection.

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2005

Cathay replaces the tear tab with a tear strip. Not sure why. Perhaps they're easier to stack that way?

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 1973

Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Cathay Pacific is a member of the swire Group, as if anyone cares. The instructions on the back and the manufacturing info on the bottom are printed very lightly, portending a design decision that propagates forward to future Cathay Pacific bags.

I'm not exactly sure what this logo is but it looks like a Diode to me. The bottom shows that the bag was manufactured in England. It says
The Kard-O-Pak Bag

WATERPROOF & AIRTIGHT

BIBBY & KARDON LTD.

BURY . LANCS

Cathay Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Gerd Clemens
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Green-Blue, White
Eschewing the airline name save for the 2 letter CX, Cathay keeps the understated bag mien which they've been known for.

Cathay Pacific

Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
The turbulent waves on this bag, reminiscent of a roiling sea or the contents of your stomach, looks like a swirlie precursor.

This bag completes the triumvirate of the Red, Blue and Green bags Cathay released during this era.

CCM Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Britta Bebensee
Print or Image Color: Black & Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is the only bag that actually shows an injured passenger. I'm not exactly sure how motion sickness requires bandaging around the forehead. Maybe the tiny plane in the background had something to do with it.
