What People Think
In the sleeve I fit 2 diapers and a small package of wipes. In the main body I put in my hand lotion, a pouch with first aid needs, a pouch with some snack bars, hand sanitizer, lip balm, and have room to spare yet the profile is on the smaller side with no bulk.
Definitely recommend if you’re on the fence and I’d love to buy it in tobacco next. Would love to see this in a black!
I have waited for years for this!
12” Tumbled Backpack in Saddle
The bag I've wanted for years!
For the last few years I've tried so many backpacks looking for a perfect fit, and this little tumbled is basically my favorite form factor of the Simple, but smaller. Perfection! I love the size and how it feels on my back, soft and comfortable right out of the box. The only thing I would change would be to add a flat outside back pocket for a cell phone or small tablet like a Kindle. Other than that, it's really the bag I've been searching for since I downsized from the Simple. I look forward to taking it on all my adventures for years to come.
Design of the Leather Drawstring Backpack
The Leather Drawstring Backpack is designed with simplicity and functionality in mind. It is an excellent addition to any leather collection. This drawstring backpack is elegant yet rugged and durable. The quality material and workmanship that went into this backpack is fantastic. This backpack is so easy to open to grab your essentials, but still secure with a buckle closure along with the leather drawstring.
A Drawstring Closure That Is Easy To Open and Close
When the leather drawstring is completely extended, the top of the bag can be opened up really wide, so it’s easy to dig through and find what you need. Once you’re done, just cinch the leather drawstring closure back tight, then fold the top flap over and buckle it down. This also acts as a double security feature for your 12” Leather Drawstring Backpack.
Leather Drawstring Backpack Lined With Pigskin
The back portion of the inside is lined with pigskin. This adds strength to the leather drawstring backpack since pigskin is stronger than leather. It is also lighter in color, helping you to be able to see inside easier when there isn’t much light. These are all factors we considered in designing the best leather drawstring backpack.
Fits a 13” MacBook and More
The Leather Drawstring Backpack will hold everything you need for a busy day or a short trip. You can fit a 13” MacBook or 13” Laptop, such as an Ultrabook, in the laptop pocket, as well as a small leather portfolio, even a leather 7-ring binder or a large leather moleskin cover. So whether it is work or play, this backpack is ready for it all.
Double Layered Adjustable Shoulder Straps
The leather drawstring backpack adjustable shoulder straps are double-layered and have 15 holes for a variety of adjustment points. This double layering will add extra strength, so you won’t have a problem.
Rolled Full Grain Leather Top Carry Handle
When you carry this backpack as a leather bag, you want it to be comfortable in your hand. So the top carry handle is made with comfort in mind. We rolled it, so it’s soft and fits naturally in your hands. The way all leather bags should be. Throw it on your back easily, or carry it by the handle; both choices are comfortable and stylish.
Full Grain Leather Drawstring Backpack
We only use real full-grain leather. It’s the toughest leather we can find. It doesn’t have any of the top layers shaved off, which is what most other companies do to get rid of scarring/marking or brands that a hide may have.
Tumbled Full Grain Leather
We did you a favor, though. This leather backpack is made from tumbled leather, which makes it much softer and pliable. It also looks really cool right away too. We basically broke the leather in for you before we made it.
Our hardware, like the drawstring backpack, is over-engineered
The buckle and d-rings are made from 316 stainless steel hardware that your life can depend on. 316 stainless steel is also used for surgical equipment and is salt water resistant, making it perfect for the beach. This type of hardware is also extra strong. We tested it with 750 pounds, so I don’t believe it will ever face anything that will hurt it.
The Best Thread and Stitching
The leather is stitched with industrial-strength polyester thread that is UV and water resistant. So you don’t have to worry about your stitching coming undone in the rain or sun. This is the thread they use when they stitch together a parachute or a boat sail. So I thought it would be perfect for your leather backpack.
Fewer Seams for Added Strength
It’s made with only two pieces of leather, so there are fewer seams. Fewer seams mean less potential for a tear. We sew the leather at only 7 stitches per inch, and the thread we use is abnormally strong.
A Backpack Made to Last
The leather drawstring backpack is designed with many features that make it a perfect choice for anyone. It’s made of rugged full-grain leather and has adjustable shoulder straps, a top carry handle, and a laptop pocket that fits a 13” MacBook. The inside is lined with pigskin for strength, and the hardware is over-engineered to be strong and durable.
A 100 Year Warranty
All of the information above is how we can offer a 100 year warranty on a backpack. That is something that you will not find in a department store backpack or leather bag. So enjoy the great feeling when you buy a quality design that you know for a fact will last you at least 100 years. We enjoyed creating this backpack for you, and we think you will love it. Contact us if you have any questions or would like more information. And after delivery, enjoy the backpack for a few days, then leave a review. We love to hear everyone’s thoughts.
