Vancouverites love Portland. Love it. I think it reminds us of us but better. The bike routes are better, the food trucks are cheaper, the music is fresher, and the hipsters are more hip than usual (hah! you were expecting "hipper" weren't you?).
But it is not just Portland. It is Oregon. The state just understands rustic. And part of that is Will Leather Goods based out of Eugene, OR.
The brand is a little outside of my price range but DANG do they ever have cool backpacks. I would also take a belt or two and, I mean, since I am such a professional, I guess a briefcase, shucks, if you are asking. Christmas list?
