This journey has been a bitter sweet one. I have encountered a plethora of snags in the process. Part of me wants to make excuses, that this has been a one man show or that it was my first time doing this, but i'm not going to. I fully take responsibility for the delays.
I encountered botched materials that had to be remade. Manufacturing, shipping times and other components have been inaccurately represented to me over and over again. I made sure there were no compromises in this process, but time was definitely lost. I have been much more anxious then you guys these past months to get your bags. This project has been my blood, sweat and tears for the last 5 months. Oh my goodness, 5 months!
I can't even begin to thank you enough. Through all of this you guys have been such a supportive and encouraging community. You have bragging rights, you guys are part of the reason these bags exist. I think that's what kickstarter is all about. Every time you grab a piece of equipment from your Langly bag I hope you think about how you have contributed to it's creation.
With all these hold ups, I have chosen not to compromise. I choose quality over quantity and most of you guys seem to understand that. I know some of you must be livid, but I would do it again if I had to. Now that I have all of this under my belt, I will grow from all this experience and continue to bring you guys the functional, durable, beautiful products that are lacking in this market.
Happy Holidays and Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,

Bags will ship out in two-three weeks! they are on their way to my warehouse.
We have some exciting things in the works coming up. Early birds! You will get to have one of these goodies to make up for our inability to get those bags out earlier.
Here are some photos of the Khaki bag with the brown webbing for those of you who were asking for photos. Also you can see the Langly bags in the process of construction. Thought you guys would enjoy these and hope it excites you as just as much as it excites me to see all this hard work and patience finally pay off. Can't wait for you to get your bags in the next few weeks.
Can't thank you guys enough, it has been quite a journey.
