I’ve been using the tan version of this bag a lot in the last year. The canvas isn’t as thick as what you might find on a Filson, and the leather quality could be a bit better, but the build is still solid and I like the design. It’s styled after fishing bags – such as the ones sold by Brady – but, when compared to the originals, it looks less conspicuous in a city environment. It’s been a go-to for me when I need something more casual than a full leather briefcase.
It’s on sale at Ralph Lauren for $220 (down from $330), but at the moment, you can knock another 30% off with the checkout code HAPPY4TH. That puts it at $154.
They also have a vintage style backpack that I really like, but unfortunately, the extra 30% discount doesn’t apply.
