Thinking about getting one myself - anyone actually own one? Good as it looks?

Got a Lexdray Boulder on the way from Singapore, should have it by the end of the week so I'll let you know. Goodhood sold out but can get them direct from lexdray or havenshop.

just read that and they do pick out some worrying faults.

I seen something a while back about arcteryx producing a bag or two under the veilance label but can't seem to find any details - anyone seen anything?

What do you guys think about Manhattan Portage? Whats the quality like? Need a bag for a week in Barcelona to wear across chest to hold money passport etc. Been looking at this…

let me know what you think, much appreciated. also any alternatives? I like the wood wood x eastpak but its a bit expensive for a waist bag.

@ gizmo - you could try ally capellino or makr carry etc. although both look less workwear'ish than the one you posted.

If anyone is interested, a kickstarter in the US called Sword and Plough use reclaimed US military surplus bags, and turn them into nice luggage.

About $200 for the "tote" and messenger, but they're much bigger, and look alright. Bit hipster-y though

I used Google Reverse Image Search:

Looking for a smart black leather messenger/satchel. Looked at Cambride satchels but I don't know if they are too girly for guys. Any suggestions on brands ?

Patagonia MLC for £135 here.;_source=google&utm;_medium=shopping&utm;_campaign=UnitedKingdom

Not leather, but I quite like this leather trimmed backpack from APC here.
