||Timmy’s Tactical Attaché
It’s not well known, but before the 90’s made Timmy into a dotcom superstar icon for ThinkGeek, he worked for the Los Angeles Police Department, SWAT division. He doesn’t like to brag, so he kinda keeps it hush-hush. Ok, truth is he was IT for the SWAT department, but don’t tell him I told you. One of the percs of the job, though, was to wear that armored black uniform, and carry around the ballistic nylon bag like a certified badass. He misses the automatically dismissed traffic tickets, blowing through stop signs with his lights on… Timmy looks back on those heady days and just grins. Sniff. Good days. He’s not allowed to wear the uniform any more, but Timmy did find a source for actual police-issue satchels, made from ballistic nylon and covered in little pockets – originally designed to carry guns, ammunition, tear-gas grenades and other weaponry, now repurposed to hold your netbook, manuals, cables and drives. Sling this bad boy over your shoulder and you’ll look like you just got off of a hostage negotiation, or popped a suspect with your Remington .308, or tactically rewrote routing tables to shunt a denial-of-service attack to /dev/null. This bag has one big chamber capable of holding a small notebook computer, or netbook, as well as a pile of gadgets, cables, tools, phone, or even a stuffed monkey should the need arise. There are velcro strips along the back to attach additional tactical pouches, or even your name or unit patch. Because it is ballistic nylon, it’s extremely durable. In the field, this bag may very well outlast you.
