Firesign Brand Waterman Messenger

Firesign Brand Waterman Messenger :: Video Review

by , July 21, 2016

Sometimes you need to contend with a light drizzle. Other times it’s that sinking feeling of your bag going for a swim off the side of a boat. The Firesign Brand Waterman Messenger aims to take either scenario in its stride. Dive into the details with Chase Reeves to see whether this submersible messenger sinks or swims (quite literally, make sure to watch to the very end)…

    Wtf is this necessary when I could have a regular bag with Ziplock freezer bags for my stuff that can’t get wet.

  • demuredemeanor

    The reviewer is ok when not making jokes, but his attempts at humor get pretty annoying. Still, much better than the last video with him, were it felt like he never got to the important parts.

    • Brad

      Agree, he is a little tough to take.

    • TeamCarryology

      Hey @demuredemeanor:disqus and @disqus_bbEU5osmtZ:disqus, we’re fans of chase! He can occasionally miss some geeky details, agreed, but he pays that back x2 in pure entertainment. 🙂

      • Brad

        Yes, of course. Complete subjectivity is inherent to the idea of “entertainment”

  • Brad

    It would benefit the review to note that this bag costs almost $450. That is, by any definition, a negative.

  • Ando

    For me personally, I LOL with Chase every time. When so much of Carryology gets all geeky in the details, Chase is a great reminder that most people forget the distinction between PALS and MOLLE, and that it’s OK to forget. I hope we get lots more swimming in boxer shorts and goggles 🙂

    excellent!!,specially the last part

    This guy was great! A breath of fresh air as opposed to the typical technical reviewers( you know who you are ) we need both types in our community; so guys, how about we step back, take a breath, and let a thousand flowers bloom!
