    I need your help!

    I have this old vintage apple leather bag, and I want to know what it is!

    It only has one inside velcro pocket, and one small tag in the bottom that says 'made in the usa'. Other than that there are no other markings other than the apple logo stamped on the outside. It's about 20" x 20"

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thank you all!

    Sorry. Anyway, it looks like a tote for an Apple IIe or similar item.

    At one point Apple had a catalog that sold stuff like this, when Steve was gone, of course.

    Link to one:

    To me it looks more like the bag for that Apple Portable, a machine that came out in 1989, couple years before the Powerbook 100.

    I forgot I have one of those bags. I got mine from a guy at the city market who used to have some sort of apple store/repair shop afew years ago. He had a bunch of old things like Apple calculators, posters, etc. He told me what they were for, but now I've forgotten. Since its gonna bug the crap out of me until I know for sure, I'll stop by the market tomorrow and ask him again. It'll be a good excuse to see what else he has up there now.

    I have one of these bags it came with an Apple II Europlus inside. My bag looks darker in colour though.

    Hey, slorockstar!

    That looks like an Apple II carrying case to me.
    As of what its worth, not entirely sure. That isn't really my area.

    Thanks,
    -Hunter

    EDIT: Just saw the original date of this listing...oops!

    Having owned an Apple IIc, I can state with confidence that if the bag had been made of grey cordura, it would be THE factory bag for the IIc. Your bag appears identical with the obvious exception of the materials and the lack (as far as I can see) of the velcro pads for the foam and nylon divider that held the small brick (about modern wintel laptop size) power supply. Otherwise, where is the Apple IIc that goes with the bag? LOL!!

    Incidentally, time and habit blinded me to the obvious LOL! The "Old" Apple was upsidedown whenever one opened the case! Mine had the old fashioned (wish they would go back!) rainbow logo embroidered where yours has it embossed and raised.
