Berghaus Mule 40 Shoulder Bag
on 28 January 2011
I needed a replacement bag to carry some personal items, not too small but handy enough to accept A4 type docs....The Mule fits in well for me since it has this capability without being too large..The external material is strong but light and hence able to withstand a fair amount of rough treatment...The only fault lies within....The side pockets are separated from the main compartment by the thinnest of linings and it feasible that any sharp items, such as carrying the odd biro pen or keys could well puncture this thin fabric in a short space of time...It's like clothing you buy these days, you manage to get hold of a decent coat for instance and then find the pockets are so thin that the first time you carry your car keys a hole appears and they vanish within the lining and become difficult to extract...It's a cheap finish by Berghaus and it spoils an otherwise very good bag.....no doubt they save money on manufacture, however, it's enough to deter me from buying another.....check it out before purchase.
