Tilley’s Intrepid Bag
By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor
We wrote about Tilley earlier this past summer and shared our article with the company. I had the opportunity to speak with Alex Tilley himself, who shared news of some of the new exciting products that they are introducing. I love the new fall and winter hats, but am head-over-heels with this bag that is making its grand debut today. It's called the Tilley Intrepid.
After seeing it “in person” I can vow that is one of these heirloom-will-only-get-better-with-age-hand-it-down-to-your-grandchild quality bag. The Intrepid is fashioned after a WWII Canadian officer's shoulder bag with all the updated quality & thoughtful details that you would expect from a Tilley product. Each bag has a brass plate with registration number to register it with the company. If your bag is ever lost and a good samaritan finds it and contacts Tilley, they will help reunite the two of you.
I love the combination of the waxed cotton with “worn” leather look which makes the bag look like it's been around forever. But I also appreciate that it's super practical too. It's perfect for a laptop or anything else deemed valuable to up to 100 pounds in weight (you never know when this will come in handy). It has heavy duty handles and lots convenient side and interior pockets.
The Intrepid is a limited edition bag available only through Tilley's. We think that this is great gift idea for the stylish college student or for the sporty husband.
