I love the quality and finish of this bag so much I can’t bring myself to use it. I have it wrapped in the cloth bag it ships in, sequestered to a dark corner of a closet. One day soon, when my “cheapo” vinyl flight bag finally succumbs to the bulging forces of GAT jars, headsets and AA batteries I will fish this gem out of seclusion and subject it to the rigors of my misuse. Until then I will occasionally take it out and admire the oiled buttery leather that is my flight bag to be. I do hope one will be cared for well enough to be in some future aviation museum. Not mine. It will be loved and butchered simultaneously. Make room in your closet and buy one.
