Job well done

Ordered wool pants and gear bag accurately described and service terms were executed properly. Hope the selection for vintage military clothing increases be it American, European or Asian. Good quality clothing that is unique and durable. Thank you for great service at a very busy time of year.

Motorcycle Gear Potential

I ordered a few items to pack on my motorcycle for cross country trips. It’s winter now so I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m happy with the bags I purchased and look forward to using them this summer! This bag does have a mildewy odor; I wasn't expecting that but also not surprised as these are vintage items that have probably been in storage for some years.


The photo belies the reality. While the description mentions a "chain" for "added security" the reality is that the bag has no bottom. It is one big piece of canvas that flaps open, and there are holes through which eyelets are placed, and the chain must be run through them to hold the bottom of the bag together. Moldy, must, mildew smell as well. These must have been lying in a basement for decades.

Ewww ewww that smell!

I love the shape, size ,and design of this bag.....but the musty old smell is so over powering that I can’t have it anywhere near the house. I have tried everything to get it to freshen up but nothing works, and trust me I want it to work as would be the perfect gear bag. Trying one more thing before giving up.
