J. Panther Luggage company makes one of our all time favorite brief bags, the Courier Ruc. With a design based on the classic zip-around form and a build made to handle New York commutes, the Courier Ruc is an elegantly durable hybrid.
Now, the JPLC folks have added to the Ruc family, rending their flagship bag in 21 ounce military-spec canvas and finished with premium Horween leather trim. In either sand or olive canvas, the bag is a functional work of art that carries what you need for the day in style.
The water-resistant canvas ages beautifully while fully retaining its durability, and the heavy-duty coil zips keep even the heaviest rain at bay. An elegantly designed interior opens up in book-like style to offer a perfect fit for a laptop, while a variety of compartments and pockets neatly store daily tools ranging from iPad to iPhone, pens to business cards.
So, even though our 2013 OTC Holiday Wish List is right around the corner, we wanted to give our friends at JPLC a special thumbs up for expanding their core line the right way. All the well thought-out elements of the Ruc’s design are in place, now wrapped in an elegant, casual, and durable body that we are sure will age fantastically.
