A very special bag!
The Bairn is the most beautiful, well-made and useful bag I’ve ever had. If that sounds like hyperbole just try one to find out. One of the best features for me is the diminutive size which discourages me from carrying too much. The waxed canvas is both attractant functional besides looking better with experience. I don’t have the cobra version and often don’t secure the buckles, relying on gravity to keep the flap closed. This has never been a problem and I’ve never lost, spilled or dropped anything out of the bag. The strap is perfect for me. It’s not padded but since I can’t overpack it’s very comfortable and doesn’t move around. It’s also not as awkward as a sling, nor does it pull or move around like a sling does. Most of my bags are two straps but this is just as comfortable for long periods. It may be Wee but it looms large among my many bags.
Outstanding Daily Carry Bag
I had been researching an upgrade to my lackluster off the shelf backpack used for daily carry / days I had to go back into the office, and the Bairn quickly rose to the top of the list. After comparing several short-listed bags from the major players, I went with the Bairn for several reasons - "just enough" capacity to bring what I need and not trick me into packing more, good looks, quality materials, excellent company ethics, competitive price, and a nod to my Nana's Glasgow roots (hey, there's worse justification!). There was no hangups in shipping and I was happy to get the bag in hand. It exceeds my expectations in every way. The capacity is perfect for what I need, the materials and construction are amazing, and it's even more comfortable as a shoulder carry than the old backpack was full on the back. No small feat there. I'm incredibly happy with the Bairn, and plan to add more Trakke to my life (currently eyeing the Storr for my travel bag). If you've been thinking about a Bairn - or any other Trakke, for that matter - I recommend you just do it. You won't be disappointed!
