British Mark VII Satchel

I ordered this bag because I wanted something I could use every day, and the original Mark VII satchels are--well, they're 70 years old, and often somewhat less than sturdy. This bag is accurate to the originals in every detail, down to the stamp on the flap and the patina on the metal disc, without the mildew smell and are much better made. And to my eye, the olive color is perfect.
Leave the originals as the historic artifacts they are, and get one of these. You won't regret it. Pair it with the deluxe strap (made by Wade Egan and a thing of beauty in its own right), and you'll have something that is both functional and attractive. I've been told mine is "understated and very classy!" Doesn't get much better than that...
Additionally, the shipping from New Zealand to the US took less than two weeks, and it arrived in splendid condition. I'm thinking of ordering another one, just to have it on hand. Good job, Mr. Magnoli!
