Deep-pocketed bartenders in need of some extra pockets, the backpack of your dreams is here: Gin & Luck, a "lifestyle brand" created by bar consultant Proprietors LLC, introduces its first accessory "for the epicurean lifestyle." It's a bag for carrying your bar tools and a couple of bottles of booze. It costs $395. (Think about it -- that's only 40 days of under-$10 lunches.)

What you're paying for: heavyweight canvas, leather, nickel-plated hardware and waterproof compartments; a 1,540-cubic-inch main compartment that includes a lined pocket for a 15-inch laptop; a toolkit and shaker sleeve; and two side pockets that hold a 750-ml bottle each (there are holes in the flaps that allow the necks and tops of the bottle to stick out). Bar tools and liquor not included.

“This bag was born out of the passion and attention to detail carried over from cocktail culture, but created for anyone whose travels are furthered with food and drink,” Proprietors co-founder Alex Day says in a release. 

You make the choice: 40 bowls of tsukemen at Tsujita, or stylish transport for your shaker, your laptop and your overproof spirits.
