In that this is my first in a continued series of blogs about bags, let me start off on the right foot here by confessing my far-from-mild bag fetish. As far back as I can remember, I have been a sucker for a sweet bag. This addiction started early and doesn’t limit itself to genre, oh no… I'm talking school kid love for backpacks, tank-bags, gun-bags, satchel-bags, lunch-box/bags, duffel-bags, computer-bags, briefcases, overnight bags, get home bags, bug-out bags, saddle-bags, range-bags, even those newfangled triangulated tea bags them fancy places are using these days intrigue me for whatever reason. Here are a few things I’ve arrived at: there are two types of bags in my world, one is the kind of bag you simply use to get items from point A to point B, like a suitcase or duffel bag. The second is the kind of bag you embrace for your tailored carry kit that I liken to a filing system, which in all actuality should be viewed as, and interacted with, more like a retrieval system, not a filing system because after all, the goal is to be able to organize things in a way that you know exactly where to find and get to whatever it is you’re trying to organize. So what I believe separates truly great bags from your run of the mill bags boils down to two very important things:
If I were to expand this to two additional things, it would include security and customer service. If I have a bag with valuables in it, which all bags generally do, I want to know that the system is a secure one. When I speak of customer service, I can’t tell you how many times Iv’e wondered what in God’s green earth some little tab, or grommet, or thingamajig is meant for on my bag that someone hopefully designed with reason in mind. I want to know that I can easily find and call the company, get a real person, and one that has an answer for me. I know, Im selfish. Im just into what just seems right, and not knowing doesn’t seem right.
