Dear friends hello.
I know that there are a lot of experienced escapologist and magicians here.
Could you give a review - the differences of these bags from each other. I'm confused in the abundance of versions. Thank you, guys!

~2~ Sack Escape - Europe

~3~ Enigma Escape - Not found on sale

~4~ BAG ESCAPE - LEAPING LIZARDS
http://www.propdog.co.uk/bag-escape-leaping-lizards-dvd - Does someone have this classic version described in Tarbell?

~5~ Sack-X - Not found on sale

The second question is how do you think Doug used the bag?

Bags. They all have advantages and disadvantages. Choose the one that fits your purpose.

The purpose of the escape from the bag is what Tarbell described.
But I like the fact that Doug was able to expand the method, leaving the subject of the layman in a sack. I'm just starting to collect routine, so it's important for me to know which bags you prefer and use in your act.
I'm just not able to buy all the bags for research.
But the basis of the future routine is what Doug did. Smile

I love using a body bag. I have a special lie that sells the thought of them being air-tight and a real source of danger. I use it standing and collapse and stop moving at a fixed time. It goes down really well for me. I get the idea of the cloth bags - but like the plastic airtight body bags more.

The bag in the vid is Sack X. I used one for a while, about 30 years ago. Like most bags, it has advantages and disadvantages. Leaving something tied inside, is the advantage, and it will bear pretty close inspection.

Using it as in the vid, requires assistants. If you work alone, that's not practical.

I recall a way of accomplishing the escape with ordinary 55galon drum liners and duct tape. Can't talk about in the open though.
