This concept is based on a recurring request: a catchall bag with extra security for when you're on the go or in the field. Our photographers, our techies, even weekend travelers needed something smaller than a duffle but with more flexibility than a satchel. Our No. 217 Utility Bag is the workhorse of the group, ready to double as your camera bag one day with our optional removable padded insert and then be packed full with a dopp kit and a couple changes of clothes for a trip to the cabin or beach. An optional insert to truly separate and organize your bag is a great call. Add up to three initials to mark this bag as your own.
Our Natural Tan leather is a cowhide that takes someone who has a vision to watch their leather piece literally change every day. Because this leather has almost no protective coating and is essentially a blank slate, it absorbs every bit of its surrounding (rain drops, the oils in your hands, the spilled tea, etc.) The light and sun will literally “sunburn” the hide to a beautiful copper patina. For the person who longs for their leather piece to tell the story of where they have been, then this natural tan is for you. Some of our customers will leave their belt or bag sitting in the front seat of the car for a few days as it changes.
