For those of us who wear two pairs of eyeglasses, this well designed and handsome case provided a convenient and lightweight way to carry them with minimum fuss. Made of handcrafted glove-tanned cowhide, it had two pouches with space for a pair of glasses in each one at the same time. It was the first and only double eyeglass case we found. We love it.

The Osprey Transporter 90, a combination backpack and luggage, made an ideal companion for the remote locations we visited during our Southern Africa adventures. It was soft sided allowing it to conform somewhat to the shape of the space we placed it in. It was versatile and sturdy; handsome enough to accompany us to five star properties and sporty enough for camping accommodations. The padded sides provided extra protection for our contents. The Transporter had straps across the front, which made it possible for the bag to shrink or grow depending on how much we wanted to carry in it. This feature was useful when we purchased a large souvenir that would not fit into any of the other bags. The souvenir fit into the Transporter because the bag expanded to accommodate the extra contents.
