^Nice. How does the inside organization look. Can you post some pics?

@veloaudio
I apologize in advance about the picture quality, but I hope this helps you get an idea of how it's constructed. First, the bag has four waterproof YKK zips: one on the top which can reach all panels, one on the front, and two for the hand warmer. From the molle side inward, the first layer is a slighly elevated, padded slot for a small tablet (fits my kindle and supposedly fits an Ipod mini):



The next slot reaches the bottom of the bag and has a coated cordura slot for a notebook/ wallet/ phone:



Next is a zippered spot that holds the hand warmer (which is easily removable). This slot can also hold a slimmer water bottle, although make sure the lid is on tight. I didnt and this compartment became a hydration bladder. Luckily none of my electronics got wet:



Lastly there is another slot with an organization panel for pens, a slim phone or ipod, etc. This pocket is accessible through the top zip or front zip:


Lastly, a gratuitous muff shot :



Let me know if you need any other pics or angles.

My fishing tackle now has another place to stay warm and dry when it's cold and wet.......

Peak Designs Everday Sling. I just got this in yesterday and am really liking all of the organization and the strap set up. Really well thought out and well made

Today was the last day that the Carryology Store was open in Melbourne. :(



They've been running down stock in anticipation of closing, and this weekend everything was half price. I picked up a couple of pieces.

My brother, @GuzziRob, is a keen photographer. Last night I asked him if he was interested in any of the remaining camera bags, and he picked out a Burton x F-Stop one. I think that it's a limited edition, Japan-only model.



Yes, I have a purple sofa. ;D

I came close to buying a Bedouin Foundry Pequod. @Cutlasshound will think that I'm crazy for not doing so, but the position of the straps meant that the top of the pack would interfere with a motorcycle helmet when riding in a crouch position.

Instead I got myself a Thisispaper Top Roll Rucksack in off white.



Thisispaper are a publisher, design collective, and gaggle of hipsters from Warsaw in Poland. I'd seen it whilst browsing things there a few days ago, and thought that it looked a nice bag. I was after something that's smaller and lighter than my Defy Verbockel, fits the personal item dimensions for US airlines, and could take a couple of standard sized packing cubes (14" x 10" x 3") in its main compartment.

The pack itself is made from an undyed 19 oz canvas, which Thisispaper describe as sailcloth, with natural vegetable tanned leather for straps and the base, and I expect that it'll patinate beautifully. The stitching is really clean. Inside there are a few pockets and a laptop sleeve, built into a linen lining.

Incidentally, it's possible that there'll be a final day next weekend in an attempt to clear out remaining stock. Things that might be of interest include:
If there's anything that sounds interesting, they might be able to post it out to you, or I can proxy it.

Think, hope, I said this before, but man @Graeme I honestly love your postings / reviews.

The Thisispaper looks nice, really looking forward how it will evo...

Thanks @rocket, it's nice to know that I'm appreciated. :)

I'm really impressed with a lot of details on the Thisispaper bag. My one concern is that there's a side access zipper, and that's likely to be a weak spot.

I'll have to post evo pictures when I get there.

You are mate  :)

I had that concern with my Seil Marshall, still in love with and still strong as day one btw. But was not really something I missed after, the getting used too...

Had a tour on Thisispaper website, kinda like the Transfer Bag, might need to have a closer look, think about one. 
Once I see yours turning mighty blue all over  ;)

There was a green Transfer Bag at the Carryology Store about a week ago. It was a really nice piece.

I wasn't 100% sure about how the straps on the Thisispaper rucksack are joined to the body, but they feel as tough as the Verbockel, so they shouldn't be a problem. And I'm unlikely to carry more than 10 kg in it. :)

As for the zip, it can be replaced pretty easily if it gets damaged. But it's a straight pull, so should be good. Given the choice, I'd have done without.

I'm expecting the rucksack to stain, get indigo all over it, and generally get really messed up. It's going to be great.

I agree with rocket, I always enjoy your posts @Graeme.

Shame the Carryology store is closing.    Glad you were able to score a new bag though

@Graeme I'm disappointed that the store is closing. I'm guessing too high a rent and overhead for a niche market. I'm not familiar with the Thisispaper line but it looks top notch. I know you don't buy much without doing your research so I'm sure it's good gear. I think I would have been tempted by a Pequod, especially at a discount but my bag collection is getting/ has gotten too big already. Will you get one if the Bedouin goes on discount?

This week I added a new pack from Hobo Japan x Arai Tent in celspun nylon. The feel and feel are somewhat Topo but the mats and construction feel much higher-end. The color and depth of the nylon is pretty cool, I'll try to get some pics up soon.
