How much are you willing to spend for a bag that will last a lifetime? $100? $200? $300? Can you really put a price on a bag handmade in Italy of hand-picked vegetable tanned leather? What if that bag were 100% wool detailed and totally adjustable? Do these make it worth more? Of course they do. Now, think about the fact that this bag – the Hard Graft 3-Fold Multi-use Bag – transforms from laptop bag to overnight bag to portfolio bag. One carries huge photos or A2 plans; one carries two days of essentials; the last holds two 15″ MacBook Pros. The straps adjust, transform and snap together like the rest of the bag. It’s definitely pricey, but this is one of those occasions where you get what you pay for. In this case, it’s three bags and a toy – in one super utilitarian package.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
