 Re: Jackthr.: They've fired a bunch of people and are up for sale.http://goo.gl/depdD0
Special Interest:   This is for the most expensive, hi-end Porter backpack available today. Retails for 600€, only sold in Japan. You won't find this anywhere on the web. Condition is still like new since I've only used it for one trip. Beautiful Navy version in 100% Cordura. beats any Goruck etc. traveller :)   See http://www.yoshidakaban.com/product/103460.html for all the details and pictures   (The pack would not come with the pictures carabiner and luggage tag)
Needs no intro if you're looking for TB bags   This is for the new lightweight Black Halcyon/Island model of the Aeronaut 45 (Currently sold out). It's been sitting in my drawer for a few months and it's 100% new and unused. Rare chance to grab this from Europe (I'll ship world-wide though)   See https://www.tombihn.com/products/aeronaut-45?variant=34039244103
Happened to me for two ~2014 bags (258, Medium Travel) after two trips. Not sure why they can't figure out a better solution for the weakest element but I've since stopped purchasing new F gear to the point where I'm only using the tote. Obviously no rivets there.
Just bought a 2016 Small Field Bag in navy and can confirm that the twill feels very stiff, almost plastic-y. No comparison to the soft yet still more rugged variation you got back in the days.
 Except that I've owned two recent bags (duffel + 258) where the leather patch which holds the D-ring came loose after half a dozen flights (carry-on). Emphasizing that I'm treating my gear very gently.
Since Amazon has some pretty decent Warehouse Deals for (Sports) Fashion going on pretty much around the globe, I've found ware.deals pretty nifty for a quick check.
Anyone bought something from the recent oipolloi sale? Seems like these guys are pretty unresponsive.
Up for grabs from my collection is a new, unused, without tags FOLK Clothing x HOBO Shoulder Bag, made out of custom-made ultra light sturdy material. Super soft and very roomy. These bags were only available as a limited run and I've bought this in Kyoto. Issued at over at 240€ I'm offering this at a very fair collector's price. Made in Japan.   Read more about the story at: http://londontheinside.com/2014/10/27/hobo-x-folk/
