Tales from the trail
It looks like something taken out of an old movie, built to last, not to be replaced with time, but repaired. Nice!!
Exactly the size I was looking for. The quality and the appearance is outstanding. I especially like the leather bottom. Should hold up well.
I purchased the black version (Askov Finlayson collab) in 2017. It was used very ruggedly, flying around the USA weekly with me for a year before the handle started to separate from the body. Frost River took it back in 2018 for a repair and sent it back promptly with some new reinforcements. It is now 2023 and I still use this bag as my daily briefcase. The leather on the bottom is so soft and supple, I've never conditioned it. The leather is gorgeous and very good quality. It has a lot of space but not too much. It can hold a lot of weight and still feel comfortable. I've added a homemade Illinois shaped patch for my home state in black leather from the Redwing tannery. I plan to add another two customs state patches, one of Minnesota, which is where I lived when I got the bag (and discovered this brand), and the other of Maine, where I live now and continue to use this bag daily. These bags are made to last.
I just received my bag a few days ago. The quality of this bag surpasses what I expected. Everything from the stitches to the buckles are amazing quality. I travel a lot for business and this is going to be my carry-on and laptop bag. I’m very happy I found this company online. This is exactly the back I was looking for.
This, folks, is a great bag. Big enough for a macbook air and a bunch of files, cables, flashlights, notebooks, dog treats, etc. All the essentials. It's also small enough to avoid feeling bulky or encumbering. What else? How about style? It gets compliments everywhere I take it. Sturdy and durable to the extreme. To top it all off, great customer service!
