"Brought a Cross Body Bag a year ago now in St Andrews, VIC. I loved the olive green colour and the design. It also looked durable. One year later, wow, What an Awesome bag! It’s held everything from iPads, keyboards, film equipment etc…and still looks amazing. Well done guys for creating such a great great product. Seriously, there’s nothing to compare. You can tell that creativity and passion is put into every product. Rarely seen these days. Well done!"

"We have just used this amazing bag (Sling Backpack) on our holiday to the US. It is so easy and convenient to use and it makes so much sense to have a bag you can simply "sling" to the front and access all of its contents without having to take the bag off or risk losing anything. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have their bag contents readily accessible. It also works when you just want to sit down and have your bag in the front while still wearing it. A very clever design, indeed It gets a 10 out of 10."

"I brought one of these (13" Satchel) a year ago, it has been travelling through Asia and is still going strong, thanks Nomads!"

"Awesome. I treat my Hipster pretty badly. Took it to India and it survived – gotta love the heavy duty zippers. Big enough too. I use the back pocket for my passport and money and the other two pockets for… well … everything else."

"Saw Marnie and Dean at Torquay Cowrie market today. I have bought 2 of their sensational bags, I bought the first one a few years ago and it it still looking great you can wipe any marks off easily or wash it. I must admit I don’t hand wash but stick it in a bag and goes ok in the machine. There are so many strategically placed pockets so I can find everything easily. I am sold on these and don’t think I will ever go back to leather, so durable and practical for someone like me who likes to travel and take everything with me. Thanks and good luck with the new versions. I still love my Old Dog! Cheers"

"I found this little ripper (13" Satchel) at the Queen Vic night market. Great for when I’m going out and need to take the usual phone, wallet, keys plus a few extras to keep me entertained."

"Love this bag (Jack Russell). I just got back from Europe and it fitted everything in I needed on day trips. Very tough and sturdy."
