The dilemma: you want a bag that will hold more than just your iPad or MacBook. You want to carry a few books, your power cord, your pens and moleskin journal. Or you want a really great bag for transporting your paperwork and a light sweater. You want an adjustable strap and a satchel that can withstand the rigors of being thrown in the overhead compartment and being tossed in the backseat of the jeep. So, I asked myself, as I do with every bag, what would I carry? I personally carry this bag in vegetable dyed leather (natural tan) and after many a trek to the office and even a cattle-drive mine now has a warm caramel patina. I made one for my wife and she said that she constantly gets accosted by strangers who ask how they too can get one like the 810. As with all our items, necessity, experimentation in our shop and an abundance of leather scraps scattering the floor were our process to creating a satchel worthy of transporting MacBooks, real books and more. Like us, we’re pretty sure you’ll fall in love with its utility and old world reminiscence. For versatility, we’ve added a metal hook on the side of the satchel so you can adjust the strap to convert to a sort-of back pack for the times you’d rather wear it on your back than over your shoulder. If you enjoy sipping your Starbucks while balancing on the people-mover, you might just enjoy using it in backpack mode. Please note each of these satchels come with an adjustable shoulder strap, front pocket and optional monogramming. Approximate size 14" x 10" x 4". Handmade in the USA.
