The Freitag Dexter F14 was created by Freitag of Switzerland.
It is a shoulder-style messenger bag with a built-in waist strap to secure the bag to your body when cycling. Though it wasn’t designed specifically to carry vinyl records, it does so with aplomb.
The shoulder strap is easily adjustable so suitable for people of all heights.
Each Freitag bag is manufactured from used truck tarps, so they are resistant to the elements — and because no two tarps (or segments of tarps) are identical, each bag is unique. They’re also environmentally friendly because the tarps are being reused (upcycled) after being retired from the sides of trucks.
Freitag is one of my favorite companies ever. I use their bags when I shop locally or travel around the world. They never let me down. I own 27 of their bags in various shapes and sizes and am listing a few here until I get it down to a more manageable amount.
Freitag still manufactures the Dexter and is one of their best selling bags. You see them everywhere in Europe. Price when new is US$260 (about C$350).
Note that in the video below, which shows you the bag in action. Towards the end you can see that you can make the bag taller to fit larger items.
I love the pattern on this bag. It’s bold and unique. The bag is physically sound with no issues. Strap is flat and unfrayed.
