    Arctic Fox Sporran Review

    Well, my sporran arrived today. Don is a gentleman, a craftsman and an artisan, and my Arctic fox has a lot of life in it



    Don is a taxidermist first and a sporran-maker second, but that doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the sporran.



    Don was very easy to work with. Now, he wasn't quick, but as somebody said here on XMarks, you can have any two of quality, price, and speed. I chose quality and price, and was not disappointed.

    The sporran is very comfortable to wear. The back is not a rigid 'board' so it doesn't dig into my thighs when I go up the stairs or for that matter, just walk around. The pouch is unusually large inside without bulging on the outside. Don't know how he did that!



    Don communicated with me at each step of the work (which he does on weekends) so I knew how he was doing (and got more and more excited). He was very apologetic when there were delays - unnecessarily so - and pleasant and good-humoured to work with.



    The sporran was well-packed and made it through the mails with no issues whatever.



    To say that I was delighted with my new fluffy friend would be just barely the fact.

    I hope that Don's relationship with XMarks will be productive for him and for our members. He deserves serious consideration.

    Wow, that's a rare beauty. Well commissioned. Fantastic work. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you!

    First, thank you Father Bill for being my first customer on X Marks, and for all of the kind words. Over this period we have exchanged quite a few emails, and developed a strong friendship! X Marks is great, eh? Anyway, thanks again, and to all, have a great day! Take care,

    Don Smith

    Don, the timing was perfect. I have always loved, and was seriously considering an Arctic Fox, so when I saw that you could do one for me... Jackpot!
