Styles that were popular in the past seem to always make a comeback. The "Fanny Pack" style provided access to your belongings, evenly distributed the weight of your carry, and offered a convenient hands-free experience. The neon colors, bulky appearance and nylon fabric quickly dated it though, and the style went south like a pair of parachute pants.
The 1980's called and want their Fanny Packs back, and we're more than happy to return them! We couldn't ignore all of the benefits of the design though.
So we went back to the drawing board and offer you this, our reimagined version of a Fanny Pack, the No. 923 Sling Bag. Bringing all of the benefits of fanny packs gone by, but with the luxe feel and durability of Full Grain leather, and a sleek crossbody modern look.
Perfect for travelers, it keeps your passport safely stored and all you need during sightseeing or city exploration handy. For those with back or shoulder trouble or those needing mobility aids, Sling Bags can be the solution you've been looking for because they keep your hands totally free.
Wear it crossbody; over a jacket or under; casual meeting at a coffee shop or elevated dining with your boss. Perfect for every setting and every look. The strap adjusts to any width between 40" - 50" to fit most bodies.
Please note that the Standard size is for smaller items and if you'd like to carry your cell phone in the bag, you should opt for the Large size.
At ColsenKeane, we select the best US-sourced Full Grain Chrome Tanned or Veg Tanned Cowhides, and Full Grain Aniline Buffalo hides for our products. We only use Full-Grain leather, which is the highest quality leather you can get; far superior to the “genuine leather” commonly used by larger brands. Our goods are built from 5/6 oz or 8/9 oz leathers, depending upon the requirements of the product. We also use the most durable hardware in the industry, and offer handmade Copper buckles and hardware as an upgrade on many bag and belt items.
Our handmade Copper buckles are painstakingly hand-forged from pure copper by a metal smith in Montana. Copper hardware and buckles is an allergen-free option for your products and incurs a slight upcharge.
The Care & Keeping of Your ColsenKeane Leather Good:
So you bought a new Satchel and you're wondering how to take care of it?
You don't need to do anything at all for at least 4-6 months. Your leather good comes packed with the oils it needs to perform.
At the 4-6 month mark, we recommend a gently applied coat of Saddle Soap (available for purchase here). We suggest you do this with our Liquid Saddle Soap.
Please note that an application of Saddle Soap will darken the leather, just like age and patina does.
1. To apply Saddle Soap, take a clean soft cloth and gently apply the solution in a circular motion into your leather good. You may wish to begin at the bottom of the bag, in order to see how the Saddle Soap will affect the hide.
2. Let it dry 2-3 hours, or overnight if you want to be certain and it's ready to go.
3. Reapply again every 3-4 months.
We can only recommend Saddle Soap on our products. Though you may surely be able to use them on other leather goods purchased elsewhere, or on larger items like chairs or sofas, we can not guarantee the results and therefore would not be able to recommend it.
Should your Satchel have some years and wear-and-tear on it, you may need a small overhaul. In that case, let us refresh your Satchel for you.
We offer a Refresh Your Satchel package during which we will give your well-loved ColsenKeane Satchel a thorough once-over and cleaning. We will use our liquid glycerine saddle soap to thoroughly clean and condition your bag; carefully inspecting each rivet and each stitch and repairing anything found, to ensure the continued integrity of your go-to companion.
