True Wind Sailor Bag

From work to the wharf, I've been carrying my True Wind's Sailor Bag for a week now and I must say that I am really impressed. Durable, hand crafted in America and covered by a life-time warranty, this is definitely a bag that I will hand down to my son in the future.

Using custom woven sails from Ireland and stitched in NYC, the brilliance of this bag lies in the details. 

The nylon thread and the zigzag stitching is exactly the same as those used in traditional sails. 

The hardware is all solid brass and coated with a nickel finish which means that it will never rust.

  1. Well, I'm not sure where to begin. The bag or the photography? OK, the bag. I'm an owner of a True Wind Navigator Duffel and their little toiletry kit. The duffel has served as my weekend travel bag for sometime now. The quality and workmanship is truly outstanding. The sailcloth and brass hardware are what makes this bag a true "classic." Made in the US, which I appreciate, True Wind seems to be doing something very right. Highly recommend the brand and compliment Skip on "the find." As for the photography, you should change careers. Enough said!

    Thank you so much for the comment. I'm trying to make the case to my wife for a camera upgrade.
