    Sturdy, lightweight durable work bag that I look forward to using for years to come. And the brass does jingle delightfully!

    Excellent Daily Use Bag!

    Posted by Christian Zummer on Mar 16th 2019

    I purchased this bag in the Fall of 2018 while my wife and I were on vacation. I needed a new bag for work, as my old bag had many holes in it. I am notoriously cheap, having purchased my last two bags from thrift shops. This was the most I had ever spent on a bag for work, but it has been, hands down, the best purchase I've ever made. I work for FedEx Express, and I'm in a different vehicle on a different route every day. This bag is big enough to carry everything I need on a daily basis, yet small enough where I can place it next to my seat and it doesn't fill up the entire cab of the truck. I've had the bag for half a year, and it looks as good as it did when I purchased it. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this bag for daily use or for travel or for any other reason.
