Notwithstanding the requirements in capacity, usability and performance characteristics you have for your new bag, we can provide the following quick sizing guide: the Bashilo 13 is ideal for people below 176cm and the Bashilo 15 is good for people above this height. This is based on matching the bag to the height of your torso. In addition, really tall people (190cm +) would find the Amhara Expeditionary 32L a great size for regular carry, despite how roomy it is compared with our core range of backpacks. Chat with us to discuss your particular requirements.
For example, the Bashilo 13 and Bashilo 15 differ in the size of the laptop sleeve inside the bag, as well as the overall dimensions. Bashilo 13 is designed for a 13’’ laptop sleeve and measures 29w x 42h x 16d (cm). Bashilo 15 is designed for a 15’’ laptop sleeve and measures 30w x 44h x 21d (cm).

If you have been using your Bashilo extensively for over a year you may want to apply some more wax on the fabric. This is not necessary but some of our customers choose to do so to restore waterproof qualities of the fabric. If you need any advice on how to do this and which products to use please contacts us.
We recommend using leather care products such as Aussie Leather Conditioner or 4-Way Care Leather Conditioner. These will help the leather on your bag stay more weather resistant as well as maintain its aesthetic properties. Regarding the bottom band of leather on a Bashilo, just like a pair of leather shoes, help the band to keep its shape when possible and it will last well for years.

We have heard of some black fabrics fading after prolonged exposure to the sun, we have since replaced most of the fabrics with newer generations that have better UV resistance, but if this is a factor on your bag yes you can try to dye it. Drop us an email first and we can help you out.
If your roundel has become loosened you can tighten it up with a flat head screw driver. The brass roundels can also be restored to brand new with a little brass cleaner.
