This satchel bag is a great option if you need as much space as possible but would rather stick to a 2 compartments bag rather than go for one of our bulkier 3 compartments bags. If you want the added bonus of a laptop compartment then our Jacob Satchback is what you want. The main flap of this satchel 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. Talking about practicality, the back straps will take 20 seconds of your time to be adjusted or removed. We positioned these back straps so that the satchel falls naturally flat on your back, offering plenty of comfort for urban commuting. Inside the bag are two main compartments divided by a large zipped pocket and to the front of the backpack satchel are two asymmetric pockets. The larger one is great for electronic tablets, the smaller one could take a small bottle of water, a book or pencil case.
This bag will collect the marks of its adventures and develop a gorgeous patina with time. The vintage, oiled leather which doesn't fully disguise original veins and marks, is obtain through a slow vegetable tanning process. It is the only ecological tanning process and is 100% chrome-free. This satchel was made using full grain hides of no less than 2,3mm. Note that you should allow three weeks for the oils to settle in your satchel's leather before wearing it with your favourite white jacket. To check that the oils have settled, simply rub a piece of tissue on your satchel. If the tissue remains white, then you're good to go, slip on that beige coat.
As more and more of us commute to work by bike or moped, we decided to add a backpack option feature to our bestselling satchel models. Our satchbacks are great city professional work bags.
