Down Buckle-Closure Messenger Bag

From Eddie Bauer (of all places) comes an interesting idea a series of down filled bags. I guess this is designed for those who might be concerned about their items getting cold? The Down Buckle-Closure Messenger Bag is described as “this season’s best accessories” (what about next season?) and come in soft, warm, 550-fill-power premium goose down accented with Italian leather trim. Features of their Down Messenger Bag include an interior organizer panel, front slip pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap with cotton webbing. I like the look of these bags though the colour of the one pictured is a stretch for us here. I wonder the practicality of such bags – what of water? And in our neck of the woods where water and high humidity are a way of life I can only imagine the smell that would be given off by continuously wet bags.
