I dont get why everyone wants a backpack so bad? I would feel like 12 years old with a backpack / daypack thing.

Im 27 this year and something more refined like the goat helmet bag looks way better to me, would be great if there was a flight bag as well, vintage style aviator duffle sorta thing.

The new varsity, the wool MA-1, the leather MA-1 (does it come in lamb suede? I gotta email about that) and now some nice bags, ugh I will be broke.

lol I feel the same way. I can't think of a situation where I would need or want to wear one. The eggplant TOJ backpack was dope though, so I can see why some people would be interested in a new one.

A weekender on the other hand devil.gif I'd be all down for.

I think the bag is great - something different from almost everything else out there. I use a more conventional briefcase for work but could see this working as a carry-on for personal travel.

Still want a weekender/duffle though. Brown goat would be perfect.

Kind of hard to innovate/put a ToJ twist on a weekender though. IMO it would have to do more than just offer a better price point than say, Guidi.

Speaking of backpacks, is that a purple suede backpack I spy in the back of that second picture on tumblr? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Two words: goatskin. More seriously - could do an older style military duffle that opens at the top. Most I have seen use crappy cheap canvas (recycled or otherwise) and are too big. Something weekend/carry-on size out of leather (or mixed materials) with a shoulder strap would also work and be unique and in the spirit of JC/ToJ. If all leather in brown I'm in.

Good eye!

Amazing bag. Wish it had a shoulder strap though because if I actually need to bring a bag, then I need my hands free to hold all the wife's things...

While we're on the topic of backpacks, I was wondering if backpack/messenger bag straps damage lamb leather from the constant abrasion?

 

Anyone have any experience?  I was thinking maybe the cloth straps wouldn't be too bad but what about leather straps like Saddleback messenger bags?

A guy could carry some serious diapers and shit in there.

Really like the helmet bag, when will it be available?
