Unbreakable- This leather satchel is over-engineered with no breakable parts like zippers, snaps, buttons, etc. and is reinforced with polyester straps and rivets at all stress points. It's built with just two main pieces of leather so there are fewer 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.
Holds Everyday Carry- I designed this man bag to keep my pockets empty while driving, sitting in restaurants and walking in strange places. I carry my Leatherman Tool in the bottom and on top of it put my wallet and iPhone and then my keys on top. There's a slim back pocket for my Field Notes, pen and a plane ticket.
Clips On Pocket- And the clips are sewn and riveted to the leather satchel instead of the shoulder strap so the satchel can clip to the handle or side d-rings of my briefcase to make into an exterior pocket.
One Handed Closure- The leather toggle and loop closure is nearly indestructible and can be opened and closed quickly with one hand.
Leather- Our cow leather is full grain leather, and thicker than boot leather. The top layer of a leather hide is where the grain lives. Grain on leather is like shingles on a roof. Low to mediocre quality companies shave off the grain to get rid of the scars of the hide. They save a ton of money that way. But they're shaving off the toughest and most resistant part of the leather. What would you think if someone shaved the shingles off of your roof? To make our leather satchels, we throw out a lot of leather.
Lining- Our pigskin lining is stronger than the cow leather and that's why we can offer the 100 Year Warranty. I think it's a better lining than some pretty shiny nylon fabric with a neat world map on it.
Thread- The German thread is abnormally strong and far more expensive than the cheap nylon version. It's the kind of thread you'll want if your life is depending on this leather satchel staying together. You'll be able to tell the story later as opposed to if your man bag was made of a lesser thread. It's a a marine grade UV resistant polyester thread that they use to sew parachutes, sails etc.
Hardware- We designed our own custom clasps and d-rings. Using 316 Stainless Steel hardware is like killing a fly with a shotgun, but we NEVER have a problem it. It's the metal of choice for when your life depends on it.
One thing to note is that this new EDC Leather Satchel will not clip onto the older hardware (the non-stainless steel hardware - Pre 2016). The new stainless steel clips do not fit over the old hardware which was thicker.
