This leather backpack is over-engineered with no breakable parts like zippers, snap, buttons, ect. and is reinforced at all stress points with rivets and hidden polyester strapping. It's built with the largest pieces of leather possible so there are few 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 leather is the strongest we can find (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.
This backpack uses a similar Gladstone Bag closure like the Flight Bag. It opens wide and stays open until you say otherwise. For closure, I chose a single leather strap with holes punched all the way out to the very tip, just in case your bag is way overstuffed or you want to stick your umbrella or blueprints under the strap horizontally or leave the laptop bag open to stick your stuff out vertically. The front pocket has a mini Gladstone closure to make it easier to get your smaller items out. I heard you asking for it so here it is, the two side pockets are large enough to fit a plastic water bottle or a 16oz travel mug. There are also two interior pockets. This is a more expensive way to design because it requires more leather, but it's also way more useful.
