can't say enough about these guys, and Refueled did a beautiful job of capturing what they're all about. we've restocked on some of our favourite pieces.
"As a daily commuter I wanted to design a medium sized messenger-style bike bag that could fit my 13" MacBook and sit securely on my waist. Designed with two side pockets for water bottles, two interior pockets, one zip pocket and a slash pocket on the back. Comes with adjustable waist strap to keep it from moving and a military spec adjustable webbing shoulder strap with leather shoulder pad. Genuine leather trim. Dull nickel hardware. Nylon Pack Cloth lining. 14" x 12""
"Our bike frame bag was modeled after a vintage smaller bike frame bag we found in France. It's perfect for a paperback, gloves, phone, sunglasses or even a sandwich. Three loops with dull silver buckles to secure it to the frame. Collar button closures on the front flap. Adjustable. Hand-stitched with wax cording. Hand-oiled and edged. 8" x 5" x 2." "
"This is our smallest Carryall Bag, it comes with a military spec webbing/leather adjustable shoulder strap with shoulder pad and is lighter in weight. It's great for day trips or as a briefcase. It will hold most laptops in the 13" - 15" range. Top quality Horween Leathers from Chicago for the trim. Two interior pockets. Comes with hand-stitched luggage tag and one buckle closure. Made with a sturdy 12" frame it stands 14" tall and can expand to around 10-12." Oiled and edged. Dull nickel hardware."
medium carryall: "Fits most laptops including the 17" MacBook. Made with a sturdy 16" frame it stands 14" tall and can expand to around 12.""
large carryall: "Our large Carryall is the perfect weekend bag. Made with a sturdy 20" frame it stands 14" tall and can expand to around 12." "
"Being fans and collectors of vintage and antique military items we decided to remake a pilots helmet bag and this was the result. Ours comes with a Swiss Riri zipper for the main compartment and for the interior pocket. Handles size down so you can carry it or increase the size for wearing it under your shoulder. Padded throughout, top quality leathers for the trim and a rugged Denier nylon lining. Fits all laptops. It stands 18.5" tall and 16" wide. Handles have a drop of 9.5" to 5.5." Dull nickel hardware."
"Our hand-stitched shoulder satchel is modeled after a WWII Belgium Map Case we had. It was just too small for our use so we re-designed it and made ours larger. There is nothing else on the market like this. Each one takes a few hours to complete. One solid piece of cow hide is stitched with heavy wax cording to form the satchel. Comes with an all leather adjustable strap with shoulder piece, dull silver rings and collar buttons. Hand-stitched detailing throughout. Hand-oiled and edged. 9 3/4" X 11." This is a heirloom piece that you will pass down to the next generation."
while drooling is quite unattractive, it happens often while viewing this collection, and is therefore acceptable...
