      Great bag

      Brilliant quality, great size, and yet to find an outfit it doesn’t go with.

      Great bag, well made

      Erin Cox (Exeter, GB)

      I love this bag, stylish but comfy and practical for all the bits and bobs I have to lug around on a daily basis. Great spot for my iPad and diary and easy access for phone and keys etc. Also took it to the zoo with the kids in the pouring rain and was very impressed with how water resistant it was. Thanks guys!

      My New Favourite Bag

      I bought the Tay as an everyday/weekend adventure backpack. I was so impressed when it arrived - excellent quality, good looking, plenty of room and very comfortable to wear. It's already been for a trip down the west coast and a cruise up the Gordon River from Strahan - bit drizzly (about as dreich as it's Scottish namesake can be some days but kept everything dry. My son has been eyeing it off, so I'm going to order him one in blue for Christmas.
