5.0 out of 5 stars One Hell of Bag!, May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brown Bag Company 31559 Alpine Mailbag (Tools & Home Improvement)
The Brown Bag Co mailbag...

Good golly Miss Molly, this is a thing of beauty! We're talking real leather, thick buttery hide, non lined and properly treated and processed...superb stitching throughout. No flaws that I have noticed. This must be one of the few remaining quality items still made in America.

I initially used this bag for a month while traveling through several countries in Europe, and never once babied it whatsoever. It performed admirably!

I'm not sure one can bond with a bag, but I believe I have! It just keeps looking better & better...It soaks up scratches with such grace that it continues to 'evolve' the more it wears -- A sign of proper leather; Handled exceptionally for the smaller camera gear I was using it for and continues to do so for the everyday mundane...but dammit, I say this thing lives for adventure!

There are no real pockets, etc inside, just a leather divider for the two main compartments with a couple slots for a few pens and I think a cardholder; There's also a third compartment which is basically a zipped outer pocket that's nice and roomy, running the length of the bag. I like it -- practical & simple design and I can find & access what I need quickly and without fuss.

If you're locking for something with a load of pockets, storage options, keep on looking.

The hardware is all brass...shoulder strap works great but the bag can also be carried as a briefcase as well. This isn't the lightest bag either...so that might also be a consideration for some muscularly challenged folks. If you're a high tech ninja, and want the lightest, highest tech, kevlar woven war pack, this might not be up to that par.

But all joking aside, and all things carefully considered, I LOVE this bag and try to use it as much as possible -- for 200 bucks, this product is a steal and a fine example of American leather workmanship!

It would be a challenge to find a comparative alternative, bearing the same quality, at the price offered -- I dare you to do better! Highly recommended!
