The Wirecutter: Killspencer Classic Original Wax Courier

Look, just because I wasn’t thrilled with this courier bag, doesn’t mean that you won’t be. Killspencer’s Original Wax Courier bag is all kinds of pretty. It’s well constructed, water resistant and as it’s made from heavy waxed cotton and bullhide leather, it’s tougher than a lot of the kit you can buy at the mall.

However, it’s also a glaring example of form over function.

After stuffing just a few bits into it, I found the bag lost it’s shape and wouldn’t close properly. Your experience may differ.

Seriously, don’t let my burning need for all of the gear in my life to be massively functional dissuade you from taking a look at this satchel. Head on over to The Wirecutter and check out the full review.
