What People Think
Great bag for things slightly too big to pocket
My main use case for this was to be able to bring my e-reader around with me. I wanted to use it more than my phone but didn't have a good way to carry it. The Kobo Libra 2 with the Sleep Cover fits *perfectly* in this bag and leaves room for a sunglasses case, inhaler, 5 hour energy, and a little room left over for a small camera (Olympus XA) or a flash for a bigger camera or my wallet if I don't want it in my pocket. I also carry a little bag of medicine and such in the back. Usually forget about it until I'm very glad I have something for heartburn.
Another layout is a water bottle and a compact umbrella, to give you a sense of the size.
My one complaint is that the strap is very very long. I'm a skinny 6' guy, so it's expected, but cinching the strap up all the way but it below my waist and letting the strap all the way out put it comically at my knee. I modified the strap by cutting it and adding my own holes to be able to raise it all the way up to my abs if I'm worried about someone trying to put their hands in the bag. I think there should be an option to buy a shorter strap as I couldn't quite nail the look from the factory.
There is no padding on the strap, but there's also not a lot of space to weigh down the bag, so no issues there.
I've considered adding an outside D ring to one side and a pen holder to the other, and maybe that would make a good version 2, but all in all I love this bag. Highly recommended.

Design Of The Travel Satchel
When I was in Croatia on a family business trip, I carried my EDC Leather Satchel, just as I always do. I noticed that the majority of the men there were carrying one similar, but larger in size. The Leather Travel Satchel is what I came up with.
Materials Used To Make The Travel Satchel
We made the Travel Satchel from 100% full-grain leather, just like our other bags. And it's thick too. With no layers of the cowhide shaved off, we keep the toughest part of the hide intact. Then we line the entire inside of this leather satchel with pigskin, which is even more durable than cow hide.
Everything is sewn together using really long-lasting marine-grade polyester thread. The way we sew is different too. Using only 5 stitches per inch, we are able to reduce the number of holes in the leather, which, in turn, means less potential for a tear to occur.
The buckles and d-rings are over-engineered, made from a custom 316 stainless steel. It's what you would want to use if your life depended on it.
The toggle closure makes it easy to access the inside of the satchel using only one hand. Carry all your essential everyday items and forget about having to lug around a heavy bag or stuff your pockets full to get through the day. Don't forget to check out our Leather Briefcases.
