This bag is designed around two compartments and two symmetric spacious front pockets. With a 38 cm width, this bag will accept standard documents. The main satchel flap over is secured by two tuck locks hidden under the old school buckles. This system is the most practical for everyday use. It is also durable as we use the best German locks available. The buckles will allow you to adjust the height of the flap should you need to carry a lot of things.The back straps will take 20 seconds of your time to be removed or adjusted. We cleverly positioned these back straps so that your satchel falls naturally flat on your back, offering plenty of comfort for urban commuting.
This backpack satchel is handcrafted in full grain leather. The use of quality full grain hides enables us to build strong bags that will hold their shape throughout the years. Working with quality hides is an art we mastered over the last century. Our threads, fitting, zippers are all especially made to fit and serve our leather. The deep black color of this satchel, through which the veins of the leather are just barely visible, was obtain through vegetable tanning, the only ecological tanning process that is 100% chrome-free. Newly vegetable tanned leather can seem a little stiff at first but the more you wear your Ruitertassen bag the better it will look and feel as the leather will soften and develop a beautiful patina.
Designed to be carried three ways: use its classic riveted handle, swing your satchel over your shoulder or carry it on your back like a backpack.This exclusive hybrid design is practical and ideal for the urban commuter. Our satchbacks are true city bags.
