For some reason, I really like buying cool bags. I’m updating my backpack, which I use every single day for both work and play. I don’t mind spending on one if I really like it and it’s well built. I couldn’t decide, so I ordered two to compare. Here they are:
On the left is a Ruitertassen. It’s nubuck, and made by a Belgian company that makes really cool stuff. On the right is a vintage leather backpack from Marlondo, a company in Utah that makes high quality leather. Both are similarly priced, and both are really cool. They look like this on:
After much thought, I think I will reluctantly send back the Marlondo and keep the Ruitertassen. The Marlondo is very cool, all leather, brass buckles, and will only get better with age. But the Ruitertassen is just exactly my style, lighter, more functional, and also great quality. Any thoughts? (I’m not sure why I posted this, other than that I’ve spent too much time thinking about backpacks and needed to share).
