Just wanted to let you know that if you order a Mk-VII satchel
from Sentimental Journey, it's war surplus, and very dirty. It takes
some washing in hot water with Spray n' Wash and an hour and a half in the dryer, as well as thorough vacuuming out and some Brasso for the corrosion on the snaps and rings. The end result is a very sturdy and durable satchel bag which is able to withstand the wear and tear of adventuring. Also, it's too small to hold a bullwhip. So the part
in Unicorn's Legacy about Indy pulling the whip from the satchel is
pure fiction. It could never happen, because the bag is divided into many sections and pockets. Overall it is a very nice, high-quality bag with a lot of history behind it. And it's a steal at $65 if you want the real thing. I would highly recommend it.
