They'll fight over this backpack when you're dead. It was designed and built to be the longest lasting leather backpack on the market and we think we got it. You'd be hard pressed to find a tougher one out there.
Over-Engineering
There is no luck in making a quality backpack. and this backpack is no exception. It is designed without zippers, snaps or any other breakable parts. And any spot that receives stress is reinforced with hidden polyester straps hidden beneath the leather and riveted through. The body of the backpack is built with only two large pieces of leather which means there are hardly any seams to fall apart. The fewer seams, the stronger the backpack. And then we only sew 5 stitches per inch so there are as few holes as possible. Quality can be measured in seam feet (how few feet of seems a bag has. We made that term up).
Materials
The leather of this backpack is the strongest and most water resistant we can find (full grain) and then we line it with pigskin, which stronger than the cow skin.For our backpacks, we custom made 316 Stainless Steel hardware rated strong enough to hold a 750 lb. bag of cats before it breaks. Seriously, I hope you google it to understand more. If your life must depend on a backpack, you'll want it to depend on this one. There’s no other laptop backpack like it.
Functionality
This simple leather backpack has a floppy interior laptop back pocket and all three exterior pockets have a hidden pocket behind them for quick access and for longer things. The lower d-rings on the bottom of the backpack are great for strapping on tripods, blankets and wet river shoes. And even the main strap has a hole at the very tip, just in case your backpack is way way overstuffed. The shoulder straps are minimal, comfortable and adjustable.

The Hiking Through the Panamanian Jungle Backpack Bedtime Story

My brother and I were dropped off by a boat on one of the Bocas del Toro islands heading to a famed surf spot called Wizard Beach. Everything seemed fine as we started on the trail up a nice grassy knoll with my leather backpack on my back, fancy camera around my neck and leather suitcase in my hand. Jonathan was carrying our sole surfboard and a small leather satchel and we were good to go.

But in no time at all, the ankle high grass turned into dense underbrush and a double canopy overhead as we found ourselves in the middle of a dense Panamanian jungle. But that wasn’t the problem. The problem was that muddy trail was up and down and slicker than snot. It felt like we were hiking in roller skates on wet ice even though I was wearing my hiking Tevas sandals. Seriously, never had I experienced any mud like that. It was all we could do to stay on our feet and it’s times like this you appreciate a solid leather backpack on your back to let your hands be free to grab trees and roots and walk with a stick in hand.

I’m not saying that we would have been forever lost in the jungle and eaten by monkeys there if it weren’t for my trusty leather backpack, but I’m just saying, it’s a really good idea to wear a backpack to keep both hands free when you’re out and about off the pavement.

We finally got to Wizard Beach, put my leather backpack down and learned why everybody had talked it up so much. It was no fable. The waves were monsters. Not like Zicatela Beach in Puerto Escondido, but they were huge. So Jonathan looked at me and I looked at him and we mutually decided that it wouldn’t be a good idea to go out that day. I had a runny nose and he had picked up a splinter in the jungle on his little finger and waves like that could only make our ailments worse. So we stayed on the beach for a few hours taking it all in and then made our way back to the little dock again. It’s not always the destination, but the journey to get there that makes a trip fun.
