In case anyone is interested, I just got an email about this sale - some bags are up to 60% off. Nomatic Scratch and Dent Sale
Excellent, thanks. You can see in-depth and merciless reviews of Nomatic gear at sites like packhacker.com.
Interesting, bogiesan. I'm not interested in the carry-on, but their concerns look valid. I did buy the tech bag and the toiletries bag and like those so far (also the minimalist wallet, which I really like!) - I just wish they came in some different colors than black.
