This full grain leather satchel (a.k.a. Man bag) 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.
Leather- Our cow leather is the super-strong (full-grain boot leather, but thicker). Not Top Grain or Genuine, but Full Grain. Low quality and life companies shave off the grain, which is the tough and resistant top part of the hide, to get rid of those icky scars so they don't have to cut around them and throw the leather away. They can use almost every bit of that hide. To make our leather satchels, we throw a lot of leather away because we refuse to shave the grain off. It's like they're shaving the shingles off of your roof. There ought to be a law.
Lining- The pigskin lining is stronger than the cow leather and that's why we use it instead of some pretty shiny nylon fabric with a neat world map on it.
Thread- The thread is abnormally strong. It's actually a marine grade UV resistant polyester thread that they use to sew things that people's lives could count on. Parachutes, sails etc. If your life ever depends on this leather satchel staying together, you'll live to tell that story.
Hardware- Our own custom hardware is the amazing 316 Stainless Steel (please please google it). It's the metal of choice when your life depends on it.
The d-rings are great for strapping on tripods, light jackets or some wet river shoes. I chose a buckle closure to be able to overstuff (with a hole at the very tip of the strap, just in case. Or you can put it at the tip of the leather satchel to secure an umbrella under the flap but over the main compartment.
