Their vinyl record bags, specifically the Rich Medina bag that we dubbed “The Game Changer”, has caught on with traveling DJs and collectors alike.

In other words, these bags have been cosigned in a big way and fill a niche for the working seven inch slinger just lovely. Since it was released, there has been talk from T&B headquarters of a smaller, portable Tucker & Bloom DJ bag that was going to go along with the bigger bag.

Four different pockets make your gig or digging excursion as easy as it should be. The two side pockets hold needles and headphones. The two slip pockets, one on the front of the bag under the flap, and one on the back help you stow away any other necessities. There is also a top zippered pocket for business cards, 45 adapters, and more. You could even put a pair of 7″ slip mats in the main pouch with the records if you needed to.
