    I am Sebastian. I lurked here for some time now. I got a sever bag addiction that I developed while living in Italy for several years. I currently carry a small Timbuk2 messenger with me most of the time, but still think my "Affe" from boy scout times is the best.

    Oh, yes, the famous Affe! Incredible small straps digging into your shoulders, and after a week of autumn camp, it smells like is animal namesake. Ah, lots of great memories connected with that. The Swiss sure know how to build a knapsack, don't they? I love it :)

    Anyway, welcome aboard. I like your nick. Now we're almost enough Germans to start taking over :evil:

    Yes, the slim straps and the smell. Today looking back I've got no idea how I ever managed to squeeze a weeks worth of camping stuff in a 40cmx25cmx5cm back bag. Nowadays I haul more stuff around when I go for an eight hours mountain hike. That is probably how I ended up on this board.

    Hey there, and hi from Berlin!


    Never used an "Affe", but I like the design. The fur looks somewhat strange, though. I would prefer plain leather or (waxed) canvas.
