The same or similar goes on sale on the RL website every year for 40% +15% kicker discount

I'd wait for a sale, but if you really gotta have it, then go for it.

You guys are right. I'm going to be patient and wait for a sale. Thanks for talking some sense into me.

The question is always: "Crazy compared to what?" Personally, I'd wait for a sale or use the $800 fund something custom. RL logos bug me.

1) No, it's no crazy
2) There is no sense going custom for custom's sake. There is not even the "perfect fit" argument.
3) imho, Yuketen does a better bag, the "mailman" at about the same price - actually, closer to $600. I actually tried to find this bag online, and could not, but I know that it is available at retailers, and at our May 5 Showcase.

I'd rather spend my money on a small company that makes them in-house, rather than a global brand that churns them out in a sweat shop.

My opinion of course - you'd also be a walking advert with their logo on the bag.
I only wear logos when I do sports.

Don't like the logo, otherwise 800 for a bag is not a big deal really if it's legit made in America or Italy not china.

It looks rather battered and used. Isn't it new?

I certainly wouldn't pay $800 for something that only cost $40-$50 at the most to make.

:violin: A fool and his money are soon parted.

Yeh RL should be paying you for being a walking billboard.

I would never spend that much on something with a logo.
