Here is a quick documentary we put together with DJ Cosmo Baker to highlight an upcoming collaboration on a version of our North To South Messenger bag. Cosmo has been using the North To South for a couple of years now, and has made a few suggestions to help cater the bag to fit his hectic jet-set lifestyle. We are really excited about the ideas churning, and look forward to the release of the bag.
Here is what Cosmo had to say about the colab on his blog:
For the past couple of years, for a DJ bag I’ve been using the amazing North To South Messenger Bag that’s made by Nashville based company Tucker & Bloom. As someone who has run the line of DJ bags over many years I have never found one that’s as versatile as well as stylish as this bag, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to anything else. The cats who created it know exactly what a DJ needs, but when I started rapping with them a little about my insight as to how they could make slight adjustments here and there, we eventually came up with the idea that a true collaboration is in order. So stay tuned in the next few months for the release of the Cosmo Baker Signature Line of luggage by Tucker & Bloom. Booyah…
To start to promo the line, the fellas decided to tag along with me for a day in the life of Cosmo Baker and film it for a short documentary. They catch me on the streets of Money Makin’ Manhattan talking about wolves, spinning Gil Scott-Heron records for the Chances With Wolves show on EVR, eating Báhn Mì sandwiches, record shopping, and then motivating over to BK so I can shake my ass to almighty J.Rocc at Do Over / Tiki Disco at Roberta’s. All caught on glorious film. Hope you like it. I kinda do…
And so, without further adeu, here is the film…
Record bags made for DJs or record buying folks. DJ Backpacks and messenger bags meant for holding 7” records, 45's, LPs, 12" singles, and virtually any other vinyl record format you can think of.
DJs require a specific type of bag, and that’s why we make our bags to the specifications and needs of working class DJs. Large enough to hold all types of vinyl, and padded enough to provide peace of mind that your precious LPs will make it from one gig to the next, without a scratch. From our larger 45 bag, made to hold a large assortment of records, to our dj backpacks and dj messenger bags, that are able to hold records and other necessary items, like cables, and laptops, we’ve got all the needs of a working class DJ covered.

I received an older version of this bag 8 or so years ago as a gift from my wife, but the older models didn't have a moveable shoulder pad (it was shearling & sewn ONTO the strap in a fixed position) - it worked great when resting on my shoulder & slung under my arm, but slung around the shoulder & onto my back it was terribly uncomfortable. I saw they now offer the bags with moveable pads, so I messaged them asking if there was any way to get a replacement strap with a moveable shoulder pad (or return it to have it replaced). Case Bloom replied VERY quickly & advised me to send it in & they'd replace the strap to the updated version for free! Such a great bag & amazing company. You have a customer for life!
This is my second RM 45 bag. While I was extremely happy with the first, the team at Tucker & Bloom outdid themselves with the updates for the RM 2.5. The quality material and sturdiness of the bag is exceptional. I've gone to the other side of the world and seen this bag utilized by DJs and shop owners, showing the global reach. Those who know, truly know this is tested and designed by a world class working DJ. Can't wait for my next purchase. Thanks Tucker & Bloom!
I bought this bag for my husband who collects records and loves to buy them when he travels for business. It is very fine quality and made beautifully. He loves the orange lining against the black too!
My order was time sensitive and the company personally followed up with me to make sure it arrived on time.
All in all a great bag and a great experience!
I’d purchased other cookie cutter messenger bags,
some even with zippers but I never liked painted on labels and also totes have always felt flimsy and wanted to fall off of my shoulder. I searched for high quality crossbody messenger record bag and found my North to South! The only thing missing was the option to be able change out the strap if wanting to in the future. Thats okay! Tucker & Bloom it turned out offered custom requests so I inquired about having the option and they knocked it out of the park by adding in D rings and the appropriate clip in hardware which btw is high quality and was worth the extra wait time to get it in. The waxed canvas is super nice compared to others I’ve felt and the body strap is a cool option if needing to secure it to ones mid section and it’s not really visible while wearing the bag. I love the depth and the fact that it can hold well over 10 double LP’s not to forget a space for a laptop and plenty of other pockets inside, etc. I’m all but certain this bag will never need replacing if treating it well. If you choose this bag whether for vinyl or your day to day, you’ll be very pleased.
This bag is beautifully crafted and roomy. It is built to hold a lot of records and has a gorgeous surprise lining! It's the ultimate combination of functionality and style. My husband absolutely loves it. Tucker & Bloom is a great family owned company with personal follow through all the way to delivery. We couldn't be happier with the purchase and will definitely look to them again when ordering bags.
