Fallout 76’s bag-gate controversy, as the industry is calling it, is a funny one. Consumers had their pre-ordered canvas bags replaced with nylon ones, while influencers got canvas bags for no reason at all. It was not a fun time to be a Collector’s Edition owner.
Sometimes, an overwhelming flood of complaints does actually serve some purpose as Bethesda will be replacing the nylon bags with proper canvas ones.
Announced through a tweet on Bethesda’s official account, those who purchased the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition will be able to get a replacement bag. Those who wish to have their bag replaced will have to submit a ticket here by January 31st and Bethesda will send out your fancy new canvas bag when they’re ready.
We are finalizing manufacturing plans for replacement canvas bags for the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. If you purchased the CE, please visit https://t.co/S5ClEZuQrx and submit a ticket by Jan. 31, 2019. We’ll arrange to send you a replacement as soon as the bags are ready.

Bethesda’s quick turnaround could possibly have something to do with false advertisement laws in the United States, alongside the traditional crisis PR management spiel. Whatever the reason, bag-gate is coming to an end and the canvas you all deserve will be arriving on your doorstep sometime in the future.
