The definition of "Portage"

According to ((dictionary.com)), Portage means...
"...the act of carrying; carriage."
Porterage on the other hand means...
"...The carrying of burdens or goods as done by porters."
I guess I have been using the wrong word for my obsession with bags... and things to put things in. I should have been using portage instead of porterage... for the things I use when I am carrying something. We live and learn.

I have to say that when it comes to [Manhattan Portage] its not the act of carrying but the art. I love their bags and once had a dream to open a MP store in Glasgow.

My fav bag is their ((J-bag)) - it has a really innovative style and is really practical for accessing your stuff without the need to remove it from your back.

I was really grateful when Janey sourced one for me when she was in NY a wee while ago. You can't get J-bags in Glasgow... although some trendy shops do sell some MP at inflated prices. Thanks pal!

Anyway... if you are looking for some sweet portage... check them out!

Comment not in relation to post but just to say that from my observations is there a battle on between Mr & Mrs. Mathie between blogs on subject of 'Star Trek' vs. 'V'?

Blessings, Matthew
