To those who bought the Thickskin bags, how are they holding up? Do you still love them? I'm seriously thinking about getting one soon.

Which style are you looking at?

I love the bucket, I have it in brown and black. The one I use a lot still looks great!! I love, love, love the suede linings on them, very sturdy. I haven't yet used the black one, even though I have had it since the spring. :shame: I'm thinking now that I am not going to use it. :shrugs: :sad:

I really want the VIP bag. (It's the first bag pictured in my original post.)

I just ordered the bucket in black cannibal and can't wait until it arrives :love:

I was originally trying to decide between that and the VIPx.. I was wondering if anyone owns or has seen the VIPx and what you think of the size?

I like big bags because I like to carry around a lot if I can, but I have back issues, so I try to stick to lighter ones..
but I would like one that I can carry comfortably my notebooks for school in...

got another thickskin :shame: ..
..i didn't know how long cordila's liquidation sale would be going on for, so i asked about the VIPx (in lava)..i payed $299 for the bag + $40 for shipping.. i think it was the last one left to be produced.. the bag's normal price is $1200
(here's a link: Thickskin)
even though i love what i've seen of the bucket (mine hasn't come yet), i wanted something really roomy that i could put folders for school in etc..
damn, these things better be durable!! do those of you who have thickskins find the them to be stronger than normal leather?

i will take good care of them..

just got my black bucket bag today :love: VIPx is coming later this month
i'm curious what (if anything) people use to protect the leather in their thickskin bags? i haven't used products to protect leather bags before (just shoes) and am not sure what to use

Congrats!!

I *think* (it's been a while) I just used some Coach moisturizer on my brown one. On my black, nothing.

thanks :smile:
i'm thinking of getting something to organize my stuff in my bucket bag (and other bags)..am having a hard time being able to tell wha't would fit into the bucket b/c it isn't that deep, though it's tall.. looked at purseket, pursebrite, etc.. they all seem to be made for deeper (though not necessarily larger) bags, i think?

got the VIPx..they sent me the wrong color (i ordered lava but got sable). it is pre-order only and it would be complicated to return it.. i think i should contact the seller? cordila?
unless someone would be interested in buying it?
