The commuter is a convertible messenger / satchel / backpack; for keeping it simple, and travelling light.
Handcrafted using rich full-grain leather, these rugged bags are designed with the commuter in mind. It can be worn three ways: as a satchel, as a wide messenger, or as a backpack; it also has a handy grab-handle at the rear. All hardware is solid brass with a satin steel finish, and all contact points are thoroughly reinforced. They're available in two sizes, for small to medium loads (the larger is more suitable for using as a laptop bag). The main compartment is fitted with a durable ykk zipper assembly along the gusset. The front pocket secures with a button/stud - this closure is oriented such that it remains top-loading, whichever way the pack is worn. The unique design of the slim front pocket allows your loose goods to be stuffed in a hurry, while always being readily accessible.

Handcrafted one-at-a-time in Toronto, Canada.
Every hide is different, and each one will have its own signature look; range markings, scars, and wrinkles give each piece a unique character. The color examples were photographed under natural light, and they're a good representation of how the leather looks in person, but some variation is always to be expected. With regular exposure to dirt and everyday life, the materials will darken and take on a warm patina.
