Ready to take off right now to somewhere hip, hot, bright, and happy?
This travel companion is still under the hangers but it's ready to take off on the runway.
Here is your sneak peek at the Steve Alan's Perfect Travel Bag for V Australia.
Inspired by the employees, backpackers, and jet-setters, he took in account of the "V" insigna, a need to secure your laptop, quilted nylon to cushion your laptop/netbook, waxed cotton to protect everything from the elements, a wet pouch from divers, hidden straps, and all wrapped up in saddle leather and red with silver zippers.
Actually, it is "3 bags in 1" built with 3 compartments that zippers open and close them shut.
The main compartment's exterior is wrapped in waxed cotton, two deep square front pockets, a side pocket with rope detail, with reinforced corners and silver rivets, heavy duty silver top zipper. There's a hidden zipper for front compartment. Each zipper has a dark red leather puller.
Opening the main compartment, you'll find a deep, wide interior dipped in bright red lining, a side pocket, and smaller "hat" pocket.
The bottom compartment resembles a vintage travel makeup case. You can open and close the silver zipper on all 3 sides for easy access. The top pocket has a zipper closure whereas the lower pocket is low and long with ruched opening. Natural tan leather snuggles the whole bottom compartment.
Flip it over to the footing and you'll find a sly and slim zippered compartment for your netbook/laptop. Quilted in red nylon for extra protection. Unlike the normally bag, this flat bottom comes with a waxed cotton strap.
Just like Australia's own platypus, built by air, sea, and the landed gentry, Steve Alan combined it into a striking jet-setting, Swiss Knife of bag in "Town to Country" clothing.
Now, you have something to pine for on next holidays' wish list.
