Great bag/strange delivery
I received my plum/olive Imago today exactly as expected. Its as great as I thought it would be. I haven't yet put a thing in it and I love it.
The delivery was a bit strange though. It did not arrive in the usual nice neat TB shipping box with the brown tape. It arrived in a box that was 12X12X24 and sealed with packing tape that had Chinese characters along with the word trotters printed on it. It was also missing the sticker that usually comes along with a bag. Down two sides of the box was written made in China in two inch tall letters. The box was pretty beat up.
Anyway, I thought this was strange enough I had to call Katy. A wonderful conversation as always. It is obvious that Mr. Bihn expects his bags to be shipped and delivered in the same expert fashion that he uses to build them. This was NOT that. Katy asked me to take pictures of the box. I'll do that and get them to her.
The only thing I can figure is UPS destroyed the original box and repackaged it along the way. I've looked at every stitch, zipper, tag and strap. The bag seems to be in perfect order. I love the color and think it will work perfectly as an every day bag. The strap is much more comfortable than I expected too.
