Reason Number 3,357 Why Lauren Liss Is Awesome


In addition to being Captain of Metroblogging Chicago, web designer, editor, teacher, and an all-around Renaissance woman, Lauren Liss is also an artisan.

Witness the custom-designed chalk bag she made for me!

Connoisseurs of camouflage will no doubt recognize the fabric as night desert camo, which, in addition to the techy coolness of the pattern, is also invisible to thermal imaging devices. And you just never know when that might come in handy.

The bag is lined with that funky faux fur you see in the photo- to ensure even chalk distribution. I provided the materials (I’m sure Lauren would have chosen an objectively cooler fabric combo) including the drawstring, webbing and buckle for a belt, and Lauren did the rest.

She even sewed on one of my ‘nikkos’ nametapes, which ups the cool factor considerably and makes for easy corpse identification.

Thanks Lauren! Now, when I go climbing, I’ll at least look like I know what I’m doing.
