I’ve just been packing for a couple nights away and thought I’d pop on here and write a quick post (mainly to brag) about my new Fjallraven duffel bag. It’s made from their waxed fabric, called G-1000, which is mega strong and will definitely last me years. It’s straps are made from a really high quality and natural coloured leather. The way their made means you can carry it in your hand, over your shoulder or like a back pack. I love how the bag, being so well made, will mature as it gets older and like a decent leather wallet, get better looking over time.
It’s designed with the obvious large main zippered area, which makes it easy to load up with all your goodies. The bag has loads of great small details, one of my favourites is the pull on the zipper which is oversized and makes opening really easy and un-fiddly. It’s got three different pockets, two outer (one with a zip and one with a popper) and one inner mesh pocket, which are great for small items like chargers etc.
As you can see from the bottom photograph the 30 litre bag, although small enough to store in an overhead on the train, will hold a fantastic amount of gear. I managed to stuff several changes of clothes, a DSLR, books, iPad mini and big headphones into it. Great for a weekend away or perfect for taking to work with a change of clothes etc.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention the very best thing, the leather Fjallraven Fox Emblem on the side! Anyway, that’s enough boasting about my cool bag, I better go finish off packing and get pumped about my travels. Expect a new post up about my travels soon.
