THE LAST ISSUE OF 'DICE' FEATURED AN ARTICLE ABOUT "EVERYDAY CARRY" OR EDC IN HIPSTER-SPEAK, YOU KNOW, SHIT YOU ALWAYS HAVE ON YOU OR CARRY WITH YOU ON A RIDE OR A TRIP, BY CALEB OWENS FROM CRO CUSTOMS . . . . CRO WAS ON ABOUT HIS BACKPACK BEING MODERN AND WATERPROOF AS OPPOSED TO ALL THE OLD CANVAS TYPES LIKE MY FRAYED AND THRASHED SURPLUS JIGGER I'VE HAD SINCE IT WASN'T FRAYED AND THRASHED IN THE DISTANT EARLY 90's.
Time to get me a new one and this time I started lookin around for something that was bigger, better, modern without being poncy and, above all, waterproof . . . . remember, I'm just talkin a shoulder type messenger satchel type thing, not a full blown back pack number, roomy enough to take a bunch of shit to escape quickly for three days but in a simple, over the shoulder configuration.
Having looked at many different brands from all over the interwebnetworldthingy, I thought I'd take a quick perve at the Knog site, low and behold, there it was, the very thing, in plain khaki green, mulitple pockets, big main compartments and waterproof . . . . I ordered one on the spot, that was on Monday night at half past pretty fucking late . . . . late morning on Wednesday the bloody thing arrives on the doorstep, [brilliant service Knoggers] and it's everything I had hoped for and more !!!
Super duty hardware for a start, buckles that won't break or fall off, heavy duty zippers, nice wide, fully adjustable strap, some sorta tripple tough new age outer fabric with fully waterproof inner lining, lots of pockets and compartments, really well finished in regards to the stitching and so forth, excellent capacity for all I need to throw in it . . . . good to fucking go I say !!!
It's a big leap for a bloke like me who generally never buys anything that looks contemporary or in any remote way 'fashionable', but, I'm being practical and now I'm actually looking forward to the next time I'm halfway between here and nowhere and getting soaked . . . . at least I know my spare pair of jocks, socks and jeans will be dry as a nun's proverbial in my big, green, wonderfully waterproof "Pig Dog" Knog, go anywhere satchel . . . . be like Wendy, get it on with a Knog !!!
