    Hi Adam

    Thanks for your message.
    Like Liz said in her reply, it is always exciting to hear about the Originals.
    Have you managed to find your early ‘Bags’ yet? The first version of Bags with the leg pocket came out around 1979 to1981, and the version that is still in production today came out around 1982, so without a photo I am not sure what sure what you have-perhaps ‘Trotters’ which preceded Bags?
    If you need a new home for any unwanted Rohan Original items please get in touch
