Commodius Carrier


This year proposed a surprising turn-out of the winter sales wherein I was able to score a massive suit-bag, exquisite, with its many trinkets and comparements, for carrying my shirts and other delicate contraptions when venturing out into the field, which will now, with the handy shoulder-strap, happen even more in style.
