Papa has got a brand new bag

Sunday, August 18th, 2013 by hinrich


I have been searching for a while for a suitable bag for getting my laptop and my notebooks to work and back. Having tried a number of different ones, I have now settled on a F77 bag from the Swiss company Freitag. That they give a second life to used car seat belts and used truck tarpaulins is nice, but I am most curious to see how durable and useful the bag will turn out to be.

Once I had ordered the bag I got a confirmation email. And I must say, they have put effort into this one... Here is what I got to read:

Hey there Hinrich

The arrival of your order was just displayed on it in amazing ultra-HD quality. We’ve had a look at your order and want to raise our glasses in homage to your excellent choice.

Now, we’re just enjoying the last sip of our dry martinis to the sounds of «Papa's got a brand new bag» and are about to arrange all the necessary elements for shipping your order.

As soon as the paperwork is ready and your product has been shipped to lovely 's-Hertogenbosch, we will let you know by email.
