Customer Gina and her Ristretto on a national tour

“This is McKenzie, my dog and the official tour dog of
Dr. Marty Becker’s national tour for “Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual” (I’m the co-author). We’re traveling the country for seven weeks in a custom-wrapped bus that has previously been used by Lady Gaga and Dog The Bounty Hunter, among others. My bag is the Ristretto, which holds my MacBook Air, iPad2, iPhone and all the chargers, etc. This pic was taken in downtown Miami last night. LOVE YOUR BAGS!

Restless Tech: Review of the Tri-Star

“Final thoughts on the Tri-Star? It is insanely well made, attractive and has a sort of bete noir charm that makes me feel a bit like a 40′s film star when I carry it around. A thousand little touches of organization and forethought that have gone into details as small as handle placement on this bag. This almost guarantees that you will love this bag as much as those that made it obviously do.”
