Safety First: Shopping Bag Doubles As Emergency Helmet

April 23, 2012


This is the Grappa, a dual-purpose shopping bag/emergency helmet that's just as ready to carry groceries as it is to be worn on your head while you run down the street screaming the sky is falling. It was designed with a reinforced bottom for use during natural disasters in case things are falling and you don't want them crushing your precious nog. Me? I carry a pasta strainer for the same purpose but with the added benefit of looking cool. Besides, what shopping bag DOESN'T double as an emergency helmet? "I dunno, the all-plastic ones you'd suffocate in?" Prove it.

Hit the jump for a video demonstration at a trade show.

Thanks to Sak, who wears a brown grocery bag over his head and wouldn't be able to withstand a rogue can of Progresso New England Clam Chowder diving off the top shelf.

    this will turn like a day inside Dead Rising for the bag seller 

  • That's a helpful write-up! I just pleased to read this info. I think it is too much important specially for me. Thanks for this allocation. :)

  • It cannot save your dignity though.

  • What's the point of having a bag....within another bag? 

    Why not make a portable/collapsible helmet so you don't have dump all your shit out over the floor, just to put a bag over your head?

  • I have a bag in my bag.
