Classic Appeal

Don’t get me wrong – I love modern hi-tech. design and material: Polypropylene, PU coated nylon, ballistic nylon, closed-cell foam, Gore-tex, Polyurethane coating, dry-flow air mesh, and the like.

But there’s just… something… about the classic materials: canvas, leather, and brass buckles.  There’s a ‘je ne sais quoi’, a timeless-ness. And a certain tactile quality.

For me, both designs (modern and classic) have their place.
