Our new all-leather backpack is finally here. We have been working with concepts and ideas for years, but we were never quite comfortable with the weight and designs. Our new Top Zip design is incredibly functional, with easy access to the main compartment. Loaded with eight pockets, including our back key-locking CCW pocket, the design is functional, lightweight and great looking.

The Story

This version was inspired by Skip Horween on our last visit to the Chicago tannery in the Spring. He suggested we try something from a slightly tweaked version of their supple and very natural Essex leather. 100% vegetable tanned, this environmentally friendly leather has an amazing feel, with a rich and smooth surface. We used another custom leather for the front straps and trim. Horween latigo (8/9oz.) in a tumbled version to add some texture and contrast. We used gunmetal finished, solid-brass hardware and charcoal lining to give the bag a more refined, modern look. The contrasting materials makes a striking backpack that is functional and sleek.
