The Diplomat Satchel V2 is the largest satchel we have, they don't come any more complete. It incorporates all the best of our classic satchels with the bonus of having a fifteen inch laptop computer compartment that is fully cushioned to protect your device safely during transport. The Diplomat laptop satchel has 3 main compartments, a special cushioned 15" 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 and leather strap and large leather shoulder pad for comfort included. All raw leather cuts are coated for a sleeker, neater look.
The Diplomat satchel is handcrafted using our Belgian, full grain vegetable tanned leather. What vegetable tanned means is that for weeks the leather hide is left to soak in barrels with various natural plant extracts that give the leather its colour. No chrome is used during this process which makes our leather environmentally friendly. We use full grain hides of no less than 2.3mm as that ensures that our bags are strong and retain their shape throughout the years. This leather can come across as stiff at first but it does soften slightly through use without becoming limp. The Vintage leather is oiled after tanning, the oils pressed into the leather give it its pull up effect or the vintage look if you like. This leather does lighten with time so if you prefer the darker brown colour, you will need to nourish this leather satchel with clear leather wax once a year.
We sell most of our Diplomat Satchels to men in managerial positions as this satchel is the largest we do. It is fully lined with our heavy duty Italian fabric and has a protective cushioned laptop compartment.
