The co-host of the Discovery Channel TV program Mythbusters said Monday someone broke into his car in Downtown San Francisco and stole a distinctive and valuable designer bag.

“Car was robbed downtown on Saturday eve,” Adam Savage tweeted. “Stolen: my awesome Tom Sachs bag. Reward for its return.”

Savage posted on his Twitter page the bag carried “sentimental value” but said “nothing vital was in my bag. Some computer cables. A hard drive with non critical video on it.”

He posted a photograph of the bag to the message depicting the missing bag, a limited edition item designed by Sachs and Nike as part of the aeronautically-inspired NikeCraft line.

The bag was manufactured with materials originated by NASA, including a Vectran lining, used on several Mars landing capsules.
