I've always wanted to have a Hartmann bag, ever since my parents gifted my sister a suitcase set. I was so jealous! Anyways, I'm thinking of getting the Hartmann Belting Leather Valise: http://www.hartmann.com/shop/productDetail-sku-1030 Does anyone have any experience with Hartmann's belting leather? My only hang-up about the bag is that it is made in China. Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with products made in China, but I feel that there should at least be some sort of cost advantage, which I do not see here. I am also considered other duffels, for example one from Glaser Designs or Lotuff & Clegg. They are a bit more expensive, but made in the States. I've read that Hartmann bags develop a nice patina and that the belting leather is especially durable. Does this also hold true for the other two bags? Anyone have one of these bags and would like to share their thoughts (and pictures of their bags)?
