A Gentleman's Satchel

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

I've been carrying around an old Italian airforce bag for a couple years now, like this one:

My quest is beginning to get serious. I've found myself drawn toward a higher end "double zip briefcase". Oh my budget... .

It ain't a satchel, but I dig this piece of leather generica I got off Amazon a couple years ago. Plenty of pockets & dividers; lots of space for a laptop, or a couple extra water filters when we're hiking them to folks in the mountains. Always room for a pipe bag or travel humidor, sunglasses, English books when we're teaching....whatever. It's become indispensable for me no matter what the day brings. It's been dropped, kicked, drug all over the mountains, rained-on, and generally abused, but has stood strong so far. I dig it anyway.


It is a backpack, not a satchel. I guess one could rip off a strap if it made you feel better....Image

I'll pull a few from the internet as I don't have a picture sharing site working currently:

--> look at the size of those zipper teeth-- I don't expect much snagging to happen or zipper mishaps.

The one side has a snap pocket and then a strap outside for going over the carry on luggage handle:

Measurements
Strap:19.7 in
Depth:3.9 in
Handle:4.3 in
Width:15 in
Height: 11.8 in

Lots of pockets and very soft to touch inside and out.

As the picture shows, I’ve been carrying this bag for over a year...Image

Highly recommended...
