So i have a secret spot in Utah where i can get Vintage Swiss and German army goods. The place where i buy it from does not know that it is cool. Its more of a Redneck paradise of fishing and hunting gear–and all around hardware store. But tucked in the back is all vintage army goods…. its sweet. The quality of the Swiss and German leather goods is amazing. Some of these bags and pouches are 50-60 years old—and they will outlast me. We are taking some of these items and making them avaiable to you. They are all great for commuting and look great on Vintage type bikes.
I am personally sick of the wal-mart mentality our culture has took on. Early in USA production–everything was built to last–it was sturdy and awesome. Now–if you buy something from hope depot–like a rake–guaranteed the handle will break within 2 weeks. Trust me, i have had my share of failed products made in the USA–with quality—but i am learning from my experiences to make a better product. There also is really good made in China..and other countries production…that is built to last—not sure what the balance is. I just think we need to get back to USA production. jd
