This totally awesome iridescent bag

I saw the coolest messenger-ish bag today, made with subtly iridescent fabric. Anyone know where I can find this bag?

A young woman in Boston was carrying this super awesome bag, but I wasn't brave enough to ask her where she got it. Here's what I noticed about the bag:

- It was an everyday bag, not a dressy or nightclubby one. I'd describe it as a vertical messenger bag, with a zip top and no flap. This bag is similar in size and proportions.
- The material looked substantial, like canvas or luggage-quality nylon, with a thick weave that I could see from a few feet away. It looked like the sort of bag that could stand up to a lot of use.
- The color was a sort of khaki-gray with lavender iridescence. This is similar in color (but the bag was definitely not made of taffeta).
- I did not notice any labels or logos. I don't recall seeing any external pockets, buckles, or embellishments.

I don't need this exact bag, but I'd like to find something very similar: an everyday style with sturdy but pretty iridescent fabric.

Don't see that in particular, but there are some other iridescent options.

One of these?

Maybe something from Timbuk2? They have tons of messenger bag options and they're very customizable.

I've seen custom R.E.load bags with that sort of fabric, i'm almost positive.

The heavy duty cordura and crazy iridescent material really makes me think it would be a custom job like their custom bags, or another similar manufacturer. That just sounds expensive to me.

This is not as irridescent, but these bags are super sturdy -

LeSportsac makes some bags that tread the line between fashion and function.

This tote from their signature collection is a similar shape and is shiny/iridescent.

I'm kind of partial to it, because my wife is the designer.

When she buys bags, she loves loves loves MZ Wallace.

Could it be a mini walking bag from Courierware, in "reflective"?
