    Brain Bag Old vs New Design

    Brain Bag Old vs New Design-bbagclip-jpg

    Hi Gang,

    Just wondering what other differences exists between old and new brain bag design,
    I bought an older design because mine does not have the bottle clip, front and center.
    and now left wondering what other design changes were added.

    Thank you

    One of mine has leather handles that snap together and an old label from Port Angeles too.
    I think it uses Snaps instead of Annex Clips inside to hold the Brain Cell from that Era too.

    My new one has a voice-activated shiatsu back massager built into the padding on the back. Very nice.

    Or was that supposed to stay on the down low?

    Mine does Reiki so I don't even have to be wearing it to reap the benefits!
    But I think you knew that?

    Honestly, we've said too much.

    Also how I roll!

    Oh and it is of course: Achey Breaky Reiki, the only kind I know.

    Yup, mine is this vintage as well. Glad i looked around the site before I ordered a current Brain Cell that wouldn't attach to my bag.

    I would like the non-snapping top handle that's on the new one, problem is this bag isn't wearing out so justifying another Brain Bag is hard.
