Harry and I have been to Paris, Manchester and made a couple of visits to my beloved Cumbria (coincidentally where Millican has its spiritual home). How have we got on?

The bag is very well-designed and packed with features. Everything is where you need it - pockets, straps, buttons, a bag for shoes or dirty clothes and a well-balanced shoulder strap that enables it to be carried comfortably even when crammed full. You get the impression that it's been used and abused hard in the development stage, producing a product that is supremely fit for purpose.
The bag fitted everything I needed for a few days in Paris, but was easily portable and its stylish shape meant it never looked out of place in such a stylish destination.
All the materials have been sustainably produced and the organic cotton canvas will last a lifetime. The bag is a skilful mix of the traditional, in terms of appearance and manufacturing values, and the modern, in terms of design and practicality.
I'd recommend this bag to anyone. Indeed, I'm looking for a shoulder bag for my camera and blogger's notebook and and would buy another Millican product without hesitation. All that's stopping me is that I can't decide between Keith the Writer's Bag here or Mark the Field Bag here.
