    I am slowly coming around to using a hanging pack, replacing or augmenting my old and trusty Dopp kit. Many hotels I stay at these days don't provide sufficient countertop space, but there's always a hook on the door.

    Any suggestions for a good leather version? I could swear I saw a link here awhile back, but I cannot find it. Searching the Dunhill and Swaine websites shows traditional kits, but nothing of the roll-up/hanging type.

    I think Col Littleton has one I think if you want to go a more rustic route. I really want one of their travel tie cases.

    Wow, and I was wondering why it was called "Needless Markup" by some. No longer wondering...

    Interesting website. Attractive goods-reminds you of Ghurka with the green canvas and saddle leather trim. Great farm and his golden retriever looks just like ours. Many of us would agree that it's better to buy from a colonel driving a beat-up Jeep than a glitzy foreign multi-national corporation. The cynic in me, though, fails to find any description of how and where the goods are made, hopefully not by underpaid children somewhere in the China Sea (compare with Mulholland). I'm thinking of this because I just took a new pair of Aldens out of the box-at least I know where it's made.

    They do seem to make at least some of their goods on-site according to this page (picture and description). I see a lot of Col Littleton carried at small independent men's shops around the South. I don't know how widespread they are.

    Thanks, Alan, for pointing this out. The pictures are encouraging.

    This Tumi could work. It's the deluxe hanging travel kit (model 2691) Â [​IMG]

    Also found this Daines and Hathaway. Available at a number of sites, it seems Charles at qedusa.com has the best price.
