Oh The Hide Of It…

Oh The Hide Of It…

I am going to be in trouble with this post…but I have been in trouble before and it’s familiar territory…

The walk-through of the Stirling Street shop floor showed that there are a number of ONA products on offer there. Bags, pouches, and backpacks – you’ve seen reports about them in previous years in this column. Well-made, elegant – slightly heavy, but it’s the weight of the materials. Fine, high-class goods.

But where are we now that the vegans have taken to grasping the spotlight and leaping into the evening news and the law courts – because a great many products that ONA make are made out of vegans. Not the ones that invade farms in 4WD’s – the ones that live on the farms – in short…cows. We’re talking leather. Good quality, flexible, tanned brown leather.

I picked out two today from the accessory section – one designed to be an organiser for batteries and memory cards, and one designated as an audio carrier – microphones and cables. The featured image is the card and memory case. And here is the audio one – flat and opened – lined, capacious, and tough.

Here’s the organiser’s insides – and this is really a pro-quality bag. There’s plenty of space in there for all you need to store and a sensible segregation of the different areas. If you need more batteries and cards you’re moving into a big Pelican box, but if you ‘re travelling, take this ONA.

I can’t dictate, and won’t debate, whether you think Bossy should end up on the plate or not, and I will not dignify chicken thieves with any serious notice, but if your principles allow you to stuff a jumbuck in your tucker bag, you could do far worse than to consider the ONA range of carrying cases.

Who knows – they might even make tucker bags…
