This bag is pick-pocket safe, with its real buckle, one will not open your bag without your notice. This is a large bag that has two generous compartments which are divided by a full depth zipped pocket useful for keeping important documents nice and flat. At the front of the messenger satchel are two asymmetric front pockets in which you will easily fit a book, umbrella or some sandwiches and a small bottle of water.
With the messenger, there is little need for us to boast our leather. The simple front panel of this messenger bag speaks for itself. However, what it doesn't necessarily say to the novice is that this leather was tanned for weeks in oak barrels using solely vegetable extracts and is therefore eco friendly and chrome free. The thick hides we use are a minimum width of 2.3mm and they make for sturdy bags that hold their shape throughout the years. This leather will soften through use but it will never become limp. The Vintage leather is oiled giving it this pull up effect. If you find that your satchel lightens with time, that will be the oils drying up. Should you prefer the darker brown, simply nourish the leather of your messenger with a clear leather wax.
Don't be fooled, this is a messenger with the insides of a very, very roomy satchel. It is great for commuters and students who need to carry a lot around. The real buckle offers an added bonus when in transit through crowded places as it will not open easily without notice. If you plan to carry heavy loads, please consider our shoulder pads, sold separately.
