Sailing the open sea's the ultimate expression of the boundless freedom of man, although when you really break it down, that paddleboat you capsized in the mini golf lagoon wasn't technically "sailing", or free. At least you can get bags that make you look ship-shape, from True Wind USA.
Wind's an Irvine-based bag-maker started by a sibling duo who spent their summers sailing off Long Island, and now make gear exclusively out of premium, brand-new sailcloth made from Dacron, a synthetic fiber known among seamen for its durability, strength, and resistance to both water and sunlight, making it the envy of vampire witches everywhere. Looking much like nautical flags or sails thanks to wide stripes and sharp primary colors, the sacks're custom-woven in Ireland before being shipped to the US, where it gets hooked up with water-repellent, color-fast nylon straps, solid brass hardware, self-repairing coil zippers, marine-grade nylon rope (for drawstrings, etc), before getting stitched up with sail-making nylon in zig-zags for strength, which is weird, cause they make you unable to get off the couch. Just dropped is a laptop bag, with a 17in padded computer pouch as well as a large zippered pocket both inside and out for cables and accessories; also available're small and large duffels, an over-the-shoulder, drawstring "Sailor," a Dopp-kit-like "Ditty," and three different totes: the four-pocketed "Regatta" overnight, the beach-bag "Classic", and the large "Skipper", with a handle/shoulder strap they make a point of telling you dangles nine inches, finally explaining why Ginger never seemed to care much about the Professor.
In addition, most bags can be customized with monograms up to 10 letters long, which are available in five different fonts -- a fitting tribute to the HMS Wingding currently beached behind the pagoda.
