    FOM has ensured that every traveler who doesn’t have one of these classics will experience a serious case of FOMO as they see it coming off the baggage carousel. What a worthy travel companion.

    As a Stellenbosch student it is the perfect bag that can not only be passed down generations due to its immaculate quality but it’s also the perfect travel bag for someone who has a wanderlust like myself.

    This bag is absolutely stunning. It’s such a perfect colour too. Ideal for long weekends away, travel bags, as a student I can put my textbooks in it too while travelling to and from home! And it would be the perfect gift family.

    A timeless classic bringing you back to a time where people dressed up to travel, had never heard of the phrase smart casual and saw any occasion as a celebration.

    This is not just a bag. Sure, it performs the functions of a bag but it does so in style. Style that never dates, mind you. The bag itself is made of some serious superhero quality fabric making it the perfect BFF travel companion. Yeah, it will attract more attention then you ever will, but that’s part of its charm..

    I’ve been searching for the best travelling bag for years and haven’t found anything close to the Franklin. This cannot be seen as a travelling accessory but necessity. Absolutely love your work.

  22. Rated 4 out of 5


    I am giving this bag 4 stars. Not because it lacks in looks, grand stature or efficiency, but because the 5th star is reserved for me, and the many adventures and stories it still has to tell. The bag might look “amazing”, “stunning” and all of those other cute words, but what good is a bag if not next to the heart of a true explorer. Thus, a true and brave companion for the hopeful and adventurous.
