the rucksack

after careful consideration, i ended up returning the bag. which gave me the opportunity to get something i have been wanting for a long time, and old school rucksack. i found one at ll bean for only a hundred dollars, and its perfect. it is made of worn out, waxed canvas and leather, and it makes me look like i have used it hiking in the alps for years. im pretty excited about it.

what do you guys think?


i am flying to arizona for memorial day weekend, and i decided not to check any bags, so it will be the perfect chance to test out my new purchase. ill see how it goes.

I love it! unusual (in the city at least) and functional. Love that shade of tan.

PS- thanks for posting on my blog! I'm a huge fan of yours, I read it all the way to the beginning a few months ago!

that's such a sweet backpack! it really does look perfectly vintage and worn in, my only problem would be packing light, good luck with that!:)

I looooove that bag! I have been looking for something similar myself. I might have to check it out. I think you will look great toting it around, it's very cool!

I love it. You're so lucky (I want one). I love when leather bags have that distressed/weathered 'n worn in look 'n feel to them ...oh it makes them perfect. VERY VERY good choice :)
