It is said in the army when preparing for a mission, “bring only what you need.” In the world of exploration, “bring only what you need.” And again in setting out to scale a mountain “bring only what you need.”

Our Hunter Satchel is reminiscent of the satchels of colonial days – carried by the likes of George Washington, of the Possibles Bag from Mountain Men traversing the American frontier in the early 1880s, and of the military map cases strapped to the backs of soldiers who fought bravely in WWII. Each bag was designed to simply carry the essential items of their time and circumstance. Constructed with ethically sourced vegetable tanned leather, our Hunter Satchel continues this legacy for our day. Whether it be a journal, pens, pencils and a few snacks for a walk in the woods, or a wallet, keys and phone for a night excursion on the city streets, the Hunter Satchel is perfectly sized to bring only what you need.

Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.

Care Instructions

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 Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Usually a big fan of Rustico, but Peg & Awl leaves something to be desired.

I’m not sure who Peg & Awl is, I assume another company that Rustico has partnered with and is hosting in their website…but the vegan leather is not the same as the high quality leather I’ve come to expect from Rustico products.

I commend Rustico for trying to serve a niche part of the industry, however I have to admit I’m a bit let down by the vegan leather on this bag. The waxes canvas is beautiful, the strap set up’s look nice, but the vegan leather lacks the durability I was hoping it would have. The strap of the closure is warped from bending it on itself to open, because it doesn’t stretch the same way real leather does. And the shoulder strap itself has begun to fray at the edges. I was really looking forward to using this bag frequently, but I don’t think it can handle it like true Rustico products can. This one’s a bust for me.

Perfect satchel

Just what my wife was looking for. Something casual, but sharp looking enough to take as a go out purse.

Love the Hunter Satchel

Perfect for the essentials and elegant in it’s simplicity. The construction and material are top notch. Be ready for compliments from strangers.

I love this bag!

This has become my new EDC bag when I am out and about running errands. I can fit my iPad, some headphones, a book and charging cables in here, no problem.
