You said it
Directing a TV documentary on National Geographic saw me working on both sides of the Atlantic. One of the most amazing locations was Inis Oirr, a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland. A rogue wave sent us crashing into the ocean. My trusty TH5 floated off towards America and I thought that was the end of our 5-year adventure. Two days later I was shooting on the beach when, you guessed it, my Tilley floated ashore and was found by the sound man. But as it had now been ‘salvaged’ the only way I could get it back was to buy everyone a pint of Guinness. After 48 hours in the Atlantic, my Tilley had gained a little more character, but was still in perfect condition.

This attractive Tilley Carry-On in waxed nylon is conveniently designed with both leather handles and adjustable and detachable leather shoulder strap. Featuring four pockets; two interior and two exterior. Nine brass feet studs keep this carry-on tidily off the ground. Each sturdy bag carries an exterior brass plate with a unique registration number that can be registered with Tilley. In case the bag is ever lost, we'll try and connect the owner with the finder.
