Oooookay. here´s some food for thought, we discussed methods to rig a guitar strap in Maya some weeks age, might be helpful:


Specific movement for the bag will have to be animated though, maybe you can automate the movement with the help of blendshapes (Bag moves backward, to the front, up and down, etc...)
