post #28306 of 42083

Wifey got me a Coach leather duffle because I admired something like it on tv and then saw this in store and it was the perfect color leather with nickel hardware... its fucking beautiful but I want to skip ahead to a year or two of use where I'm not afraid of those first couple scuffs. Something about it feels so delicate; maybe its that it just has that newness but I'm not yet convinced of the toughness of the leather they used. Doesn't have that "holy shit bullets cant touch me" toughness you guys have expressed when you open your calf or goat TOJs.

Totally agree. I have a filson duffle and use it for fishing/camping etc. When I travel business I like something a little nicer and just use a small roller now but it lacks any style. I've ogled leather bags from some heritage brands but they are either too small or too expensive. There is a sweet spot for some goods where they are neither too expensive too lose sleep if they get lost/stolen or they are inexpensive and look it.

Drew, is it too early to talk about price range? Just interested, especially after you've mentioned it's "leather on leather." I'm curious how much I might have to save over the next couple months. Also, since there is one size, will you be able to produce more of these quickly? Therefore have a smaller turnaround time?

 

Also, maybe a sacrireligious comment, but how much can that hook hold? Could you hang the bag off of something, maybe off a bike rack? OR is it more for hanging something off the bag? (I understand why the hook is there historically)

bag without a shoulder strap is a non-starter for me, not that i was in the market for another bag redface.gif carrying bags by hand is so impractical.

Same here.

It's true that most people out of school don't carry a backpack, and really shouldn't. But there is one exception, at least for me, and that's on my bike. A black leather backpack could look pretty cool on a motorcycle. Most motorcycle gear looks like shit, it would really stand out. I was considering the makr round backpack which seems to have nice materials, but it's canvas and looks pretty standard.

I wasn't thinking of a duffel style weekender when Drew discussed bringing back bags a while ago. I was thinking more along the lines of this (which happens to be Guidi's medium sized version). Something large enough for short trips, but small enough for daily use. The helmet bag looks like it would fulfill the same requirements. I don't ride a bike or a motorcycle and as I mentioned earlier, shoulder straps don't always play nice with MC clothes.

Maybe I've always been a one-backpack type of guy but I don't get suede backpacks. Maybe the climate I live in just isn't right for it. Do want sand-tan daypack though and helmet bag looks nice.

ps ma-1 get on my back now.
pps don't delay shipping a week because I said I wanted it.

Here is the style I had in mind earlier: Could be all leather or mixed materials (e.g. leather lower half). Could add one adjustable shoulder strap. May add a flap over the top for more secure closure. Line it with Alcantara

No of course not. Not like that at all. They are totally different. Okay maybe. But no ropes.

And alcantara lined of course
