Freitag Bags

Top CatFor those who like bags that are really different than everyone else, take a look at Freitag bags.  Freitag started by Swiss brothers Daniel and Markus Freitag, takes recycled waterproofed truck tarpaulins, seat belts, and bicycle tires and creates one of kind bags in several different styles and sizes.  They offer pre-made bags, but I think the best part of Freitag is the Freitag F-Cut or Bag Cutter.    With the Freitag F-Cut you choose the tarp, place the stencils on the tarp where you want the pieces cut and then they sew together the exact pieces you selected.  They currently have offices in Davos, Switzerland; Hamburg, Germany and retailers in both the US and Canada (check site for retail locations).  The bags on the Freitag web site sell for an average price of EUR 120 / CHF 180.   The bag pictured is the Top Cat, which features a hip belt, inner and out pocket and measures 16.9”x4.7”x14.2”.   But keep in mind that since each one of their bags is a one of kind item you won’t be able to find the bag pictured for long. ~ Comment on this bag. Do you like it or dislike it? How do you think it could be improved? What colors would you like to see it in?
