This full grain leather satchel (a.k.a. Man bag) is over-engineered with no breakable parts like zippers, snaps, buttons etc. and is reinforced at all stress points with rivets and hidden polyester strapping. It’s built with the just two main pieces of leather so there are fewer seams, and we sew at only 5 stitches per inch so there’s more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear.
Our cow leather is the super strong (full grain boot leather, but thicker) and the pigskin lining is stronger than the cow leather. The thread is unbelievably strong industrial marine grade UV resistant polyester thread and our custom hardware is the amazing 316 Stainless Steel (please please google it). It’s the metal of choice when your life depends on it. There’s no other leather satchel like it.
The d-rings are great for strapping on tripods, light jackets or some wet river shoes. I chose a buckle closure to be able to overstuff (with a hole at the very tip of the strap just in case. or to secure an umbrella under the flap but over the main compartment.
