Why I love shopping on the web!!!
« on: January 28, 2010, 03:02:41 PM »
 :D Right, I sold my motorhome and thought I treat myself to a new bag. I wanted a shoulder bag, because I have a lovely Think tank rotation 360. Yes, I know Jonathan, it still is lovely and as far as ruck sacks go none more suited to my needs. So I looked at Crumplers and could see myself trying to look trendy. It is a bit like driving a cabrio, after a certain age it still feels good but you look like a tw*t. So I came across a Billingham. Now I always have fancied a Billingham, but they have always been way to expensive, especially the big ones. So I thought I look for a second hand one at Amazon. The Billingham 555 was my choice, and after searching the site, near the bottom of a long list was a Billingham 555 with a price tag of £147. Brand New! Although this was slightly more than I wanted to spend, I clicked all the necessary buttons and bought it. 3 days later...... A brand new Billingham 555 with the invoice of £147.42 Free delivery. Returning to Amazon I find that the whole list of bags is now reduced to 2 suppliers and the cheapest is £285. That is why I love shopping on the internet.
BTW- The bag is like a Tardis. It swallows up gear and the quality is just unbelievable. ;D

 :( Sue, don't go there...........
Selling it broke my heart, but My lovely wife didn't enjoy sleeping in it and there are only a limited number of trips I can get away with on my own.
