A Rainbow of First Generation PANArt Hang Bags

If the carrying bags / cases that came with first generation PANArt Hang are not already artefacts of interest, no doubt one day, they will be.  Made from a coarse material, with only a small amount of padding on the Ding side, these bags, were not the sturdiest bags ever made.  And knowing that there are already a lot of first-gen owners out there who do not have these original bags (with many dieing from general wear-and-tear), if anything, these carrying cases are now even rarer, than the Hang they were designed to transport.

Complete with two carrying handles, a shoulder strap, and emblazoned with an embroidered PANArt logo patch, arguably, the most interesting thing about these bags, is the almost excessive (but kind of awesome) array of colours in which they were made available.  

First generation PANArt Hang carry bags were available in the following colours:

  • Green
  • Brown
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Red
  • Gray
  • Yellow

And you can check out some pictures of them in their different shades below...

* I have not been able to find a picture of a green bag at time of posting.  I will add one when / if I can find one.

[Update] Joan, of Anuah, sent us pictures of a green bag (many thanks)...

* The above green bag has been converted backpack-style, which is pretty cool, but is not truly representative of a first generation bag - great example of the colour though.  :)
