Organization is key to the Laurentian Luggage layout. The pockets and compartments allow for everything to have a spot. End pockets work great to isolate contents from the main compartment. The top opens wide to let you see everything inside. The front pocket is held shut with strong magnets. A large zippered slip pocket on the back of the bag works great for traveling papers. The Premium model has a full leather bottom over canvas. Guaranteed to last a lifetime. Made at Frost River, USA.
