Loving my new Western Flyer!
I took my WF on a 6-day trip to San Antonio, where it exceeded all my expectations. Hard to believe that this tiny bag held all that I needed for my flights and my stay there, plus had space for a few small gifts. I loved meeting my friends at the airport with this bag and watching their faces drop as I announced that we can leave straightaway, no need to go to baggage claim!
I bought this bag as a smaller alternative to my Aeronaut. I admit that when I first went shopping, I thought I could find something that was just as good as the WF, but at a lower price. I can say that after weeks of online research and visiting dozens of shops, there isn't anything out there that comes close to the WF in terms of design and quality.
Here are just a few things I love about the WF:
- The sleek exterior, free of bulging, tacked-on pockets, means that it effortlessly slides into x-ray machines, overhead bins, and under seats without snagging, and passes unnoticed by gate agents.
- Backpack straps that are actually comfortable and really secure. I was stranded at a mall for an hour when my ride was late and it was so easy to walk around with the WF, even when I used just one of the straps as a sling.
- It's kind of a clown car, isn't it? How can it hold so much stuff in such a small space? On my trip, my WF felt only about two-thirds full.
- It's so versatile! Business trip or leisure trip, I'll always look professional with a WF.
As if this wasn't enough, TB heard my plea for timely delivery so I could use the WF on my trip. I asked for 3-day delivery and somehow it arrived practically overnight. I guess I really ought to thank UPS, but I'm sure the TB team also had something to do with it!
My WF is my favourite TB bag!
It's a shame it's not a WF story, but I once took my Tri-Star on a trip to Japan and the delightful young woman at customs tried to re-direct me back to the baggage carousel because she couldn't believe it was my only bag. I think she would have fainted if I'd been using the WF on that trip!
