Corter Summer Grab Bags finally arrived!

I was patiently waiting for the package to reach my letterbox. And the tracking number they provide will not update once it left the US soil. Eventually it took 1 week plus to reach my letterbox after Corter sent the email with the tracking number.

I ordered 1x Premium Bag and 1x Accessories Bag. Actually, I was having the impression that the items that we will be getting is ALL of the listed names there. What a fool I am! It's EITHER ONE.

Was a little disappointed as I didn't get what I wanted (I was hoping for a Passport cover or a full-bifold wallet)

Ok here is what I got:

 Left: Premium Grab Bag
Right: Accessories Bag

The one (and only) leather item was this cardholder:

It was alright. Not the best that I've seen. Furthermore, to add to the disappointment, there wasn't any Corter Stamp or initial on them. Not that it would make any difference but at least with the stamp, it won't look like a random DIY project that I would have done it myself. 

Next are the bottlehooks:

Left: (Limited Edition) Forest Camo
Right: Black
And followed by, Signature Split Rings (lots of them):

Got 4 Pewter ones and 2 Copper ones

To be honest, these are not what I expected to get, having spent like USD$54. There was a huge disappointment when I opened it up. I couldn't see anything useful in the items that I got. To make myself feels better, I used the bottlehook and the split ring for this purpose:

Car Key Holder

Will be hooking the bottlehook to my jeans belt loop, with the car key tucked into the jeans coin pocket.

National Publicity

This will be, I guess, my first post on a non-leather related object.

Just acquired a laptop for work recently. A Dell XPS 12. Needed a Windows OS machine for various reasons. My home preferred machine still a MacBook Pro. :) Yeah, call me an Apple Fanboy. I just prefer OSX.

So I went to search for a proper bag that I can carry my laptop to work in style. I remembered seeing a bag called "National Publicity". And VOILA! Saw the one design that caught my attention in the first place.


And so I patiently waited for the shipping. Surprisingly, its quite fast! From the day I ordered to the day I got it, its about 4 working days. Not bad considering its from S.Korea to Singapore!

Today the postman came with this.

From the all-familiar GANGNAM! 


Some stickers that came with it, I just love it!

Inside the bag:

may god bless you

Initial impression: Feels very sturdy and nicely padded. Just nice for my laptop. Could be enough space for my Kor and Nalgene water bottles too. Can't wait to use it tomorrow morning!

Corter Leather Summer Grab Bags

And today I received an email from Corter, saying that my order was shipped out.


I am almost clicking on the tracking number every 2 seconds (I'm just kidding, maybe 2.5 seconds)

Stay tuned if you want to find out what did I got from the Premium Grab Bag and Accessories Bag.
