Egg Bandolier

new method of storing and carrying eggs
  [vote for,

Egg Bandolier is a new method of storing and transporting eggs. Like all bandoliers, it's worn across and diagonally around the body, only instead of ammunition being carried, there are eggs.

For complete protection, each egg is provided with a see through plastic container accessed via a hinged lid that's secured with a simple catch. A padded interior further protects the eggs from potential impact damage.

When not being used to transport the two dozen eggs which the bandolier can hold, you simply hang it up on a wall, using the special hook. (sold separately)

Inevitable deluxe version has lighting up containers, and doubles up as a cycling or night walking safety light.

       Shirley this works with hard-cooked eggs as well. Is there a Tabasco sauce holster option?

       Does it come with a cannon for transport towards the unsuspecting hosts?
Mindey, Mar 13 2020

       Can it be used for grenades ?

       What if you have 25 eggs? That would be a terrible problem.
pocmloc, Mar 14 2020

       Have you got a 25th egg? If so, you can balance it on the end of the special hook.
xenzag, Mar 14 2020

       What about the 26th egg? (I like eggs)   

       Actually I am not being serious enough. I think the design should incorporate an overlap-gap, so that two of these bandoliers can be worn simultaneously, to allow convenient carriage of up to 48 eggs. That would solve most people's egg carriage difficulties.

       //I am not being serious enough// You do realise this is the halfbakery.....

       Well exactly, I try to resist being flippant. I wouldn't want to lower the tone.
pocmloc, Mar 14 2020

       What a pity that's your only option.

       Can it be used for storing other food items? Breakfast-cereal bandolier, Banana bandolier, Biscuit bandolier...

       I like the simplicity of this idea. It has no advantages over other egg transportation systems and needs none. It didn't really require an explanation either, it just is what it is.

       So in some middle schools in the not-so-correct 80's, the girls got to carry around eggs as a class project to simulate the responsibility of taking care of a child. This would've made that much easier.
RayfordSteele, Mar 15 2020

       Sometime around 2010, I and my classmates got to do that—all of us, not just the girls.

       I have carried eggs around, and I have raised children. One thing is not remotely like the other.
wagster, Mar 16 2020

       Unless your children are egg shaped.
xenzag, Mar 16 2020

       Could this also be used as form of incubation allowing you to carry 24 or possibly even 48 baby chickens (whatever they are called, leverets probably, or smenge)? I am imagining that the containers look a little like the ones you used to keep photo film in, allowing you to pop a lid off with your thumb, extract a smenge (or leveret or whatever) and toss it at your intended target, without the delay of having to rummage in your smenge bindle.

       The receptacles would need to be operable one-handed, as the most likely reason for wanting such a bandolier would be a large raptor perched on your wrist.
8th of 7, Mar 16 2020

       Well of course the receptacles need to be operated one-handed, even for the original egg-only version. If you can't extract two eggs at once from your egg-carrying device then that doubles the time needed to prepare your egg-based repast.
pocmloc, Mar 16 2020

       //One thing is not remotely like the other.//   

       True. Eggs are more well-behaved and children have an altogether different flavor.
RayfordSteele, Mar 16 2020

       The whole // carry around eggs as a class project to simulate the responsibility of taking care of a child. // thing might have the unintended effect of teaching (i) always carry a frying pan, and (ii) children are a convenient, tasty and portable source of protein.
8th of 7, Mar 16 2020

       //simply hang it up on a wall, using the special hook. (sold separately)//   

       Clever. Should the hook not be ordered, the egg bandolier enthusiast will have no storage options at all, forcing them to wear and advertise the product constantly.   

       Will a refrigerated version be available for fussy american eggs?   

       The device does suffer from the same drawback as the regular bandolier. That is, the cargo is vulnerable to being shot. I think that we can all agree, after being shot, no-one needs viscous eggy goo and bits of sharp shell running all over their entry/exit wounds.
bs0u0155, Mar 16 2020

       A version that can be worn under body armour would be an advantage in that situation.   

       There is scope for considering as to whether the bandolier (belt-fed) type of egg supply is superior to the pusher/follower magazine style, like that used by the Henry rifle <link> and the Spencer carbine <link>.   

       The belt fed system is clearly better for large numbers of eggs, but the tubular design is easier to "harden" against impact.

       Pay extra for the kevlar-reinforced version, then. Don't blame others for your lack of foresight and ill-judged economy savings.
pocmloc, Mar 16 2020

       On a related topic, my 12yo just read that dogs know eggs are breakable and will carry them around in their mouths without cracking them. We just tried it with Peanut Butter (a pointer) and he trotted merrily around the house with an unbroken egg in his mouth. Dogs are so great.
wagster, Mar 16 2020

       Better than most humans, certainly.   

       // lack of foresight //   

       We don't need one; we don't use backsights either. We are renowned for using laser target designators.   

       // and ill-judged economy savings. //   

       It's always a tradeoff, although part of it is procedure, for example "Pack the eggs ON TOP of the 88mm AP rounds, NOT underneath".   

       You would be astonished how many people make that mistake.
8th of 7, Mar 16 2020

       There should be two rollers on a rack for the refrigerator, so you can string the bandolier on them like a conveyor belt and access the eggs one at a time.
