Exceeds expectations!

I love this bag. It’s extremely well made. It feels like it’ll last a lifetime. It’s got enough features to make it convenient to use but not so many that I forget where I’ve stored things. It’s a well thought out design and I use it every day.

Great Bag

This bag is really nice, very well made. It has a kind of vintage look to it and I'm sure it will only get better with time.

Excellent Laptop Bag

Got this bag to use for my laptop & it served me well for years. I ended up replacing it with the Pilot bag for extra space when traveling. Friend of mine uses it for her purse now & kinda get pangs of jealousy now when I see her with it!

Highest quality and workmanship!

I have been searching for a messenger bag for a while and was visiting family in Duluth over the holidays and we happened to stop in the store. I looked at many things while there and could have spent hours longer if we had the time. The messenger bag was something I looked at, put down, went back and looked again and even a third time before we left, without it. We went to lunch 30 minutes away and afterwards, drove back so I could buy it! I am impressed by the craftmanship, the mission of the company and the high quality of the bag. Next time I am back in Duluth, I will be stopping in again!
