The Laptop Director's Satchel V2 is the top dog of satchels. It incorporates all the best of our classic satchels with the bonus of having a thirteen inch laptop computer compartment that is fully cushioned to protect your device safely during transport. The Director laptop satchel has 3 main compartments, a special cushioned 13" laptop compartment and 2 generously deep front asymmetric pockets and offers all the carrying space you could need. There are pen holders and two smartphone pockets inside the bag. This V2 comes with our heavy duty canvas / leather strap and large leather shoulder pad for comfort included. All raw leather edges are coated for a sleeker, neater look.
Thick, Belgian, vegetable tanned hides make our bags. Just one look at a Ruitertassen and you know that satchel will potentially outlast you. Our hides are no thinner that 2.3mm because that is what we found to be the perfect width to make a strong, sturdy bag without adding extra unnecessary weight. The chrome free vegetable tanning technique that we use is an ancient one, it is slow and tricky but it renders the most beautiful leather, is eco friendly and 100% chrome free. If you want to know more, we have a page dedicated to the technique we use and our leather. Now vegetable tanned leather is stiff at first and will not budge but as you use your satchel it will soften without going completely limp. The Vintage brown leather is oiled after the tanning process and gives it its pull up effect. As your satchel ages, the leather will lighten. If you wish to retain a dark brown colour, simply nourish the leather of your satchel with a clear leather cream or wax.
Because of the volume of this director satchel we recommend this satchel for men and tall, strong women. Indeed as the bag is larger, more leather is involved and therefore more weight. Weighing just over two kilos, this satchel can seem to bulky and heavy for some.
