    • Leather Care

    • Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
    • Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
    • Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleaner for additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

authentic at a pioneer trek reenactment

I received one as a gift. It sat in my house for a month because I didn't want to scratch it. I participated in pioneer handcart trek reenactment last week and thought "it's authentic for a pioneer trek, so I'll bring it and hopefully overcome my fear of using it." I used it as my "possibles bag" that I took everywhere and carried on about 13 miles of trekking in the dusty high plains of Wyoming. The bag was perfect, authentic and actually looks better now than it did before our trek--plus I'm not longer afraid to use it and scratch it. Live action shot below taken by a friend of mine.

Hey Mike! That is so awesome that you took it on Trek! It really does fit in well with nature and outdoors. I'm glad you like it even more now, as it does tend to look even better with wear and tear! Thanks for the awesome review!
Held up for all these years.

I love this bag! I bought it 10 years ago for my work bag and general travel bag for trips. It fits a ton of stuff (magazines, journal, makeup, etc. ) . It has held up solidly! I get compliments on it frequently. Some co-workers refer to it as my cowboy bag or my Peter pan bag. Once ever hear or so I just wash it with saddle soap then apply mink oil. It gets better looking each year with the natural patina. Yes it was pricey, but it will truly last a lifetime. The sides are riveted with metal fasteners and the strap is nice and long for crossbody or shoulder wear. Can't think of anything negative to say about this bag

Hey Tamara! Thanks for your incredible review! We would love to see some pictures of your bag! If you're open to it, you can send them to Thanks again! :)
Beautiful Satchel

I am so very pleased with this bag! The leather is thick but not stiff. Bag is well made and I expect to get many years of use from this bag. This is just a simply made bag. No zippers or metal other than a couple of rivets. I had my bag personalized and the personalization is subtle and looks very good on the bag. I'm a bit of a pack rat and this bag holds my books, papers, Kindle or iPad and anything else I need to take to work every day.

Thanks for the great review Jeannine!
Accurate photos

The pictures are accurate but they don't quite communicate how heavy duty the leather is. I swear it would stop a bullet! I do agree that a snap or a buckle would stop it up a notch though...

Very strong and well made

First off this is a strong bag. Constructed from thick leather and stitched very well. I don't think it will ever fall apart. Rustic is definitely the word. If you're looking for pockets and zippers though this is not the bag for you. It folds closed and the only metal hardware is a couple of rivets. This is a great bag to stuff things in if your traveling and it will definitely not wear out easily. I give it 4 stars. If they added a buckle to keep it closed turned upside down I'd go to five stars.
