1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.

    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?

    I have a pilot bag that looks similar albeit in all nylon, very tough material...it was a collab between Eastpak x Raf I want to say but I think I'm wrong. Picked up from Oi Poilloi. I rarely use it now except on trips. Maybe I should get it out again for when I need a place to put my files and folders during meetings. = \


    edit: Correction, it was called "Helmet Bag"

    would this: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=2311 not be the navy/sand tan? idk, maybe it's just the pic, but this kinda makes me lean against it, and kinda want navy/gray instead. I would really kill for a gray/cream, or maybe something similar. Trying hard to decided which colorway I want.

    Been living in my ToJ MDR on my trip to New Orleans/Mississippi. Combined with too much alcohol, It's handled 40 degree nights pretty well. I wish I did not tailor it so much in the waist, as I have to use the double zip to make it wearable.

    Now that I think about it, I would like to see which, if any, of the TOJ bags could handle a 15" laptop.

    I suppose it is nice, i guess I just want something lighter because i wear my Rogue Territory RK ISC trousers everyday and I don't want to navy overload. Plus I've never spent that much on clothing so I want it to be perfect (feel pretty sad saying that but whatever). I'll probably end up getting navy/tan anyways; as of right now it's my favorite, and it'll still look good with my navy trousers, I'm sure.

    The helmet bag looks good but what I would like the most is a bag I could use to the gym in olive or dark green goat.

    For all those who want leather duffles and weekenders what kind of traveling do you plan to do? Filson Canvas is so much better or something lighter weight like the crane ones serve way more function and still look clean. Unless you got your Ferrari ready for nice weekend getaways a leather duffle is kinda pointless. Bunch of extra weight and less durability ( even if it is lamb) compared to canvas makes the bag not really a good idea

    I'm liking the bag drew made though, much better use of leather and design looks pretty spot on. I'm 22 but really don't wear a backpack unless I'm bringing laptop + camera when traveling
