Welcome!

Me with a few bags. Photo by: Johan Ardefors "What sounds to be one of the most disgusting sites on the web is actually one of the funniest. A comprehensive collection of "barf bags" from airlines worldwide, this site has pictures and descriptions for each one (none are shown used). If you've ever been curious about the world of the barf bag, this is the place for you!"

This bag is BIG

In a bid to knock Niek Vermeulen off his perch as the world's biggest baggist, Virgin Atlantic has issued a bag big enough for you to climb into.

This latest Virgin advertising stunt takes a sideswipe at budget airlines. The text is a bit longer than most baggists are used to reading, but I do recommend you read through to the bottom - it mentions our noble avocation!

Credit goes to Michael Christopher Scott who sent the picture and to Christian Mundigo & his wife Braden Rhetts who snagged the bag from a billboard in NYC.

Media attention

Sweden's second biggest morning paper, Svenska Dagbladet, featured a small story on sicksack.com. Only in Swedish, sorry...

Fad nauseam Winnipeg Free Press

On December 4, 2008, the USA business magazine Forbes did include Rune's barf Bag Collection in an article about odd collections.


Rune's Barf Bag Collection now exhibits:

1698 different bags from
  5
67 airlines in
  142 countries!

How I count bags: I count all barf bags, airline, bus, train, boat, generic (but only once!) and advertisement bags as long as they are barf bags. I don't count or collect plain white bags or non barf bags.

WOW Air

WOW air is a low-fare airline based in Iceland. The airline was founded in November 2011 and serves destinations across Europe and North America. The bag features a nice vomit-meter, from heckle competitors prices down to inflight panflute music!

Thanks to George Shapiro-Weiss for bringing this bag to
Rune's Barf Bag Collection!
