Whether you're headed to Africa to bag the Big Five, traversing the Silk Road by bus, or thumbing it over the Himalaya, this satchel will fit right in. Even if you only brave the daily jungle of the office, it will remind you of that long overdue exotic vacation you need to start planning, while you carry the coolest briefcase around. Our Safari satchel is built to take the abuse a world traveler can dish out on their gear, or just the trudge across campus. Although if you're headed into the bush after that wounded hippo, we suggest leaving your satchel in the Land Cruiser. Remember, you don't have to outrun the hippo, just the other guy you're with.
Crafted of beautiful full grain cow hide, this satchel is heavy duty and rugged. Thick yet supple leather, brass hardware, double stitching, riveted stress points and quality craftsmanship add up to a satchel that will last for years and miles. Designed with the real road in mind, the shoulder strap is generously cut, to easily sling across your body when you need to make a sprint for that departing bus to the ruins. The rear main compartment features a stout brass zipper to keep your gear secure and away from pickpockets, while the front compartment is open for quick access under the flap. An open pocket in the front compartment hold items like your reading glasses, ipod or phone, along with four pen loops large enough for an AA-sized flashlight, pocketknife, etc. and a key lanyard keep all your essentials ready. There's also an exterior side pocket with a slit-button cover on each end, perfect for items you need without opening the flap, and an open pocket on the back, to keep your magazines and boarding passes within easy reach. Two heavy duty buckles up front really wrap down the satchel for maximum security for your treasures.
Created exclusively for Far Horizon Traders in the highlands of Central Mexico by a husband and wife team working out of their small shop, the care, pride of craftsmanship and quality is evident. The leather is vegetable tanned specifically for our satchels a drum at a time, and we feel the ability to work personally and directly with the tanners and tailors creates a better product, and benefits everyone involved. We believe you'll feel the same. The leather is tanned and oiled to create unique variation in each satchel and an ever changing look as you put mileage on it. The longer you wear it, the better it will look.
Featuring genuine brass hardware for strength, large zippered rear compartment, open front compartment with two interior pockets for your phone, ipod or other small accessories, four pen holder loops, exterior sunglass sized button closing pocket, riveted stress points, double stitching, adjustable strap sized to be worn cross-body and double buckles for security.
