RAW VEG-TAN LEATHER
This Porter Satchel is constructed with natural Vegetable Tanned Leather (Veg Tan), setting it apart from other leather options. Neither dyed nor oiled, the tanning process of each hide of Veg Tan comes from vegetable matters such as tree bark, which creates the natural, bare skin look to the product.
The patina process on Raw Veg Tan is a direct reflection of the lifestyle you live. The more you expose the wallet to natural oils and other elements, the more marks and color change the wallet will show eventually turning the wallet to a caramel brown. This process makes Veg Tan special, as it allows the user to develop a more personal connection with the product.
The Porter Satchel was meticulously designed to be one of the most unique products available. It features materials that are fit for a lifetime of abuse and love, sharing every adventure with you.
The design of this bag stems from field adventures of Bexar Goods Co. co-founder, Guy Rubio. Pursuing studies as a field geologists, Guy was eager to find a bag that could not only hold all of his gear, but also survive a decent into a rugged limestone cavern. Guy was able to find these capabilities, and more, in the Porter Satchel. He went on to test the limits of the bag in the coal mines of Utah, and even as far as the dense terrain of Iceland.
The Porter Satchel features a simplistic design- one main carry pocket, and a shoulder strap that can be worn as a backpack or a satchel. The main carry pocket can accommodate electronic devices, such as a laptop or an iPad, as well as notepads and dopp kits. The Porter Satchel can also house clothing and essential carry items, allowing you to get away for a weekend exploration.
- Vegetable-tanned 9 ounce harness leather from one of the oldest tanneries still operating in the USA. The leather will naturally darken with exposure to the elements and your everyday lifestyle.
- Solid brass hardware-- buckles, D-rings, and single large O-ring, and copper rivets were because of the metal’s strength and unique weathering characteristics of the metal. Each copper rivet is hand set and peened over our anvil for a nice rounded finish.
- Hand-stitched construction using the time honored saddle stitching technique.
- Approximate size: 15.5" wide x 11" tall x 5" deep
