“I’m not a “cheap stuff” sorta guy. When I buy a bag or travel accessory, I want to make sure the design and manufacturing folks have thought things out. I don’t want the sort of industrial garbage in which innovation is measured by how much the company can save by removing features or using inferior material while maintaining the same price. Sometimes they even have the unmitigated gall to claim that the (new and improved!) hobbled product is better or safer because of it (think about that 6 inch cord on your toaster, for example).
So when a small company appears on my radar claiming real innovation, I’m happy to look into it and share.”
