10 Feb Killer Bags!
Whenever I’m presented the dilemma of acquiring something new and very stylish I turn to the lovely Alejandra Valera, who is typically just the width of a 5-year-old away from me, and ask “Where can I find a cool…?” A few months ago I replaced my 15″ MacBook Pro with the new 17″ model knowing that my old shoulder bag (which was showing its wear ANYWAY) would have to be replaced. So I asked my style consultant, “Where can I get a cool new laptop bag!?” I don’t know where she finds this stuff (her resources are a closely guarded secret) but I soon received an e-mail with a link to KillSpencer.
The KillSpencer line is designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles out of materials that have military origins, from the mil spec hardware to the repurposed ‘fabrics.’ There’s a lot of great stuff in the collection; the business messenger being most suited for my big laptop and the repurposed OD truck tarp being the material that most caught my eye. The tarps that are being remade into these cool bags originally served to cover 7 ton trucks. Needless to say, my bag is well broken in and has a nice patina. Construction and materials are well thought out and nicely designed. Spencer also has a small line of accessories that go nicely with his bags as well as a wall mount bracket to hang them from (one of which is included with each bag).
Customer service was excellent and Spencer was happy to answer questions about his product. Good stuff, Maynard!
