Americana CCW Mail Bag #280

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 18
The Mail Bag No. 280 was inspired by the original US Postal Mail Bags introduced in the late 1800’s. Our version stays true to its original form but with a few extra details. 

The body is large enough to carry most 15" laptops along with notebooks, documents, pouches and other accessories. The Mail Bag is fully leather lined to outlast the average bag. You will also find a unique and smart key-locking (leather lined) full length pocket to carry a laptop, iPad, handgun or any other valuables you carry. We use copper rivets, Italian brass hardware a back carry handle and a steel bar insert to reinforce the structure and carry handle. Includes a full leather strap (adjustable and removable) along with our LIFETIME WARRANTY to guarantee your mail bag will be passed down for generations.

  • The original US Postal Mail Bags were introduced in the late 1800’s and the last ones were made sometime in the late 1960’s. From these designs we now have modern-day “messenger” bags. We wanted to stay true to the original designs but with some logical and practical upgrades. 
    Our Mail Bag No. 280 was inspired by the original US Postal Mail Bags. We built the No.280 to stay true to its original form but with a few extra details. We install copper rivets by hand, a hand-forged steel bar is built into the back panel for structure and strength and the bag is 100% leather lined. The NEW version introduced in Fall-23 has a unique feature you won't find anywhere else. A key-locking, leather-lined compartment under the flap that can be used to secure your laptop, handgun or any other valuables you carry.  

  • Our Horween® Americana Mail Bag is made from a natural, 100% vegetable tanned leather tanned in Chicago, Illinois. The tannage uses Horween's old-fashioned, time proven Shell Cordovan tanning liquors. A blend fats, oils, natural waxes and greases are tanned into the leather giving the hides a durability, softness and a rich round feel. The hides are finished with a "hot-plating" to give them a smoother surface, a rich lustre and a light sheen. You will notice a slight "pull-up" effect with lighter undertones and wonderful "leather" smell. The "temper" or firmness of the leather is ideally suited for luggage and cases, with just the right amount of rigidity and body. A true "Artisan" tanned leather made from domestic US hides and tanned start to finish in USA since 1905.
