Can you comment on Mont Blanc Backpacks and other leather goods?
Tom Schwarz (1 month ago)
Wait.. this is too funny.. she's bashing messenger bags, but promotes leather backpacks????? HELLO leather backpack = mix of casual and formal, does not go hand in hand! Looks bad, you can't wear it with a suit/sport coat, looks tacky with jeans and sneakers.. Hilarious, no wonder celebs dress poorly they have her to show them. Leather backpacks fit with athleisure-inspired clothes and active wear. Nothing else. Peacoat/sport coat/over coat or just that "smart look" etc.. use a satchel, but not with a suit.

I have really strong opinions on backpacks, but I don’t wanna say anything cuz I don’t wanna talk shit! Request???? Can you test the fireproof bag just for giggles? Stick a firecracker in the bag and see what happens?

You must be joking: backpacks are for kids!

Hey Ashley, how do you feel about more rugged styles? I think the Coach Bleecker Backpack looks really nice, but I'd like your opinion on it. I think it may have come out after this video was published.

Hello! I am a backpack guy, I use my bagpacks for tech and sports utility, these are really impractical, no back system for comfort or cooling, and you'll be feeling those straps. They look bad from my point of view(the brown one really looks like my grandpa used to have) and the colors are a no way! Except the black one!

Any Goruck or 5.11 Tactical bags are better than any of these for a fraction of the price.

I like these backpacks but I want to stick to a lower price range. I've heard that Von Baer is good. Does anyone know any other brands?

Seriously though, who is/are the audience for this video? Guys that have $800 to spare on a backpack are most likely not YouTube-ing what backpacks to buy...I may be wrong, I don't know, but this video seems strange to me

hi beautiful, how much are those leather backpacks worth?
Luis Santiago (1 year ago)
Don't worry guys at least the last one costs $195 lol
Jordan Reid (1 year ago)
There is always cheaper options, I didn't like any of the watches in that video, but the basic advice is pretty spot on, even get a faux leather bag one there cheaper. Plain t-shirts and polos try asos. Personally I think a small logo Ralph Lauren t shirt looks good but Ashley will say lose the logo. Yet all I get is compliments on my clothes
AE Lafuente (1 year ago)
Actually if you search on Amazon, you can find great leather backpacks with affordable prices, and they are better than the backpacks on the video.
Sunny Gogna (1 year ago)
what's your opinion on loctote?
Michelle Kendall (1 year ago)
Backpacks rub the bottom of my back and wear out my clothes quickly
Emilio Cabra (1 year ago)
I highly disagree with leather... I would recommend something which is classy but weather proof... Where I live it rains almost daily for the first 6 - 8 months of the year, so as much as I love leather, not good for a backpack which is carrying most of my tech gear
Champ (1 year ago)
Awesome video Ashley. Most of us are hating just because we're broke. Thanks though. Still in love with you.
Joe Martinez (1 year ago)
lol she must of forgot to mention these backpacks cost 800k

Next video in the Men's Essentials series: The Best Men's Gun Cases, Holsters and Accessories.. =)
expansive items are always good and everyone love that. Make a video for economical things
Benjamin Cordes (1 year ago)
Thanks for the solid advice as always! Backpacks are so useful but I never realized that you could get really cool looking ones in leather, great :-)
Louis Clerc (1 year ago)
What straight man would spend 700$ for a backpack? that sounds desperate. I understand Ashley you want to move products for your product sponsors but that's a ridiculous amount for a man.
Calvin Green (1 year ago)
Louis Clerc Absolutely positively straight and I would definitely carry this... https://lotuffleather.com/collections/mens-backpacks/products/leather-backpack If I had ANY interest in a backpack, which I don't...
Bo Chen (1 year ago)
If you have to carry cameras, try ONA bag and backpacks
Higgy (1 year ago)
I really liked the This is Ground backpack.. went to look at how much they were. I was expecting a couple hundred... ish. But $1,000+ kinda blew my mind that a backpack could be over 1k. Never would've expected that :S
Dakota Soileau (1 year ago)
Lol just checked out the first backpack. Definately can't afford an 800 dollar backpack.

Cycle with my rucksack. These would get destroyed with the rain, mud and muck. Throw my rucksack in the washing machine!

hi ashley congrat about you videos, it helps a lot, but what about hat, high quality hats not caps but derbys, fedoras, mainly for guys like me that have no hair on the head, i know men left hats behind, but i don´t care i love them, so can you say someting about hats?

What's gonna happen if the lady gets lost within the bags???
Felix Erazo (1 year ago)
With much respect, This video of the backpacks is not saying much. what this video shows is what you like about them. You didn't show any of the backpacks capabilities. like showing pocket sizes, what size computer you can fit into them, how much stuff can one carry in them. etc... I'm looking to purchase a leather backpack and this video failed to sell me one.
Felix Erazo (1 year ago)
Why even bother doing an overview. You either showcase the whole product or you don't. This is just a constructive criticism. BTW, should have included Tumi. Those people know a thing or 2 about backpacks.
Pedro Vitor Rissin (1 year ago)
its not a review dude, and she isnt trying to sell stuff, she is just giving you options and showing you how to rock a casual outfit even with a backpack
Nicholas Spano (1 year ago)
What about the soho backpack and weekender from Jekyll and Hide?

Those who are complaining about how expensive the bags are, should understand what she work as. Her experience and taste varies from our normal lifestyle's. Beauty or to look cool also pays a price. Heck, even I can't afford all that but it's good to know about all these. If you want high quality leather bags you can't expect a cheap price... But I would appreciate if there's examples for cheaper alternatives :)
Bigwave2003 (2 years ago)
Leather = murder. When there's a reasonable alternative, I go for it. There are lots of sleek and fashionable and long-wearing nylon alternatives.
Leo M (2 years ago)
we love your eyes Ashley!
rrpostalagain (2 years ago)
I guess I'm forever doomed to not be cool, or dressy, or whatever having someone else tell you what to like is. Because there is not a chance in hell I'm buying a leather backpack.
ann l (8 months ago)
So agree, the only reason why it cost this much is its made of leather.
joshua (1 year ago)
If, and when, I wear what I want - I don't think other people's opinions would be on my mind, smartass.
Vuk Belcevic (1 year ago)
joshua You can wear whatever you want smartass,but be ready to be judged negatively
joshua (1 year ago)
Damian Pickett but what rules are there? I just never understood how there could be "rules" as to what you wear. I have never heard any normal person say to another - "you can't wear that", purley because they don't have the right. If you get what im saying?

Hi Ashley :) Do you recommend anything under 100 $?

This channel is for rich people. Those backpacks are not cheap at all. Style is one thing but being rich is something not many people are.

ziad ayzee (2 years ago)
and it's* douchey
rrpostalagain (2 years ago)
ziad ayzee I just said that same thing before I read your comment. I always wondered who bought these leather backpacks. People who pay someone else's girlfriend to dress them, apparently.
Dry Tadpole (2 years ago)
Opinion on the MCM Medium Stark backpack? I just bought the black one and have used it for college for 2 weeks now. I love it and so do my peers!
Andr ' (2 years ago)
Uni student, can't afford a leather one. Is it better to go with fake leather or other material (if so, which one)?
hard ondolo (2 years ago)
Thanks for the sleek elegant selection. Have also been looking a suitable bag pack that combines sleek form with ergonomics. (Yeah, want to look good and take care of my body. ) I've yet to find a backpack that distribute the weight into the hips (away from the spine) and still look sleek in a professional environment >_<
Michael LeVan (2 years ago)

Just picked up the Venture bag. Thank you very much for the suggestion. You definitely sold me on it. I am a firm believer in high quality & well made goods. This bag definitely hits the mark.

+Ashley Weston it's very freaking awesome! Although trying to find the tile pocket is 20min I'll never get back haha.

Just ordered the Kill Spencer Spec Ops 2.0 backpack - love the design. I talked to the gal manning the phones and she said they are switching up the design and prices soon - get yours while they last! Edit: also saw a bag from Zara that I liked the other day on someone.

Πεύκο Ο (2 years ago)
I see a lot of users complaining about the price, and with reason, but non the less, it is still possible to buy a quality leather backpack for a price between 100$ to 200$. And When talking about the leather, it´s important to be aware that for a price above 300-500$ is just not worth it, there will only be a handful of small details that make the price rise.
Πεύκο Ο (2 years ago)
+Ashley Weston I´ll be sure to check it. And I´m also acquire a leather bag this month, and making my own judgment about it.
Πεύκο Ο (2 years ago)
+Ashley Weston I highly doubt that. If the bag costed 500 and another bag costed 150, yes, we could maybe see an increment in it´s quality, but I´m very skeptical of claiming that a 900$ bag is far better than the 500$. However my opinion can change in the light of evidence, so, what were the significant differences noticed?

Hey Ashley, what do you think of the backpack made by Combatant Gentlemen? Here's the link: https://www.combatgent.com/luggage/the-stealth-pack#

Every time I see a guy with a leather backpack, I instantly think to myself, "Wow, that guy has his personal style together." Definitely wish I had a leather backpack.
Jhad Guiling (2 years ago)
Loved the backpacks!!! But they're probably very expensive, esp because it's made of pure leather.
