THE REAL MCCOY’S HELMET BAG | US AIR FORCE

Helmet Bag? Since weeks this bag is my daily carrier – sure not for working: FILSON rules! –, but for all other activities. Sometimes I even take it as my sports bag – my soccer shoes and a towel fit into this bag and a 1 ltr. bottle of mineral water too. The bag is lightweight, made of nylon, has three interior pockets a shoulder strap so that I easily can take it with me on the bike. The zip is a heavy one and the lining soft. Just perfect – hope it will last forever! Take a look at the photos what I got with me when I was @ the doctors this morning. About the look we have do not have to speak: it’s simple, classic, without any useless shit, military inspired – perfect. Bought this bag last year @ volls.de. It was and is not online and I do not know if he has some more in stock. Ask him! pics | LTG

NEKO x LIFE TIME GEAR | A PARCEL FROM JAPAN

again: living in a small word. two weeks ago another package from japan arrived. send by my friend NEKO, my personal “FREE & EASY” dealer. this friendship is a result of an ebay deal not from blogging. great. just because of NEKO i knew that F&E did 2 new special issues: COWBOY & INDIAN and WILD & GENTLE COUNTRY CLUB. she send them with my F&E april and may issues. and beside the obligatory very informative newsletter NEKO send me a present and made me a really big surprise: from the phantastic RUGGED FACTORY she gave me a HAV-A-HANK bandana. thank you so much for this! a great idea – i will use it for sure. now i am little bit ashamed that i did not open the parcel 2 weeks ago when it arrived. but you must know, when i got my magazines from japan i need some time. because after holding the mags in my hand the next hours are gone. me i am gone … not reachable for anyone, just looking and reading. reading? ok, some headlines are written in english, but: pics say often more than words … so i go, i am gone ……………. pics | LTG
