    Loving this bag! It’s small enough that I can easily use it every day but has room for all my gear, conveniently in places to quickly grab. The leather is nice too.

  2. Ben

    Amazing quality! Can’t fault it at all. I work in an office and this carries my laptop, phone, keys, headphones and everything else I need for the whole day and its half the size of my old bag. Well worth every cent.

  3. Phil Taylor (verified owner)

    I have known David for many years and he has always been professional and thorough in all he does. This product is testament to this.
    This satchel looks good and feels good while being very compact. The perfect man bag.

  4. Peter (verified owner)

    Beautifully designed and made product which is both fashionable and practical. Will last for years and continue to be a timeless design.

    Originally bought this bag for my day to day office needs and I will say it did take a few days to acclimatise to the compartments and various nooks and crannies contained within. However, now that it’s become my daily go to I don’t think I’ll ever look back to the more traditional suitcase setup I used to lug around.

    Final thoughts; Convenient, compact and most importantly comfortable.

    Fits everything I need, super important for someone on the move. Love it

    Impeccable quality and workmanship in this product! Strong leather and lining fabrics, quality zips and studs make the Satchel a pleasure to use. With so many pockets and slots I had fun deciding a place for everything to belong! I just love the thought and planning that has gone into making this product so well designed and built to last for many years of usefulness.

  8. Merrily (verified owner)

    Fab, I love it. This bag has become my everyday bag, and like others here, I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back. It carries everything I need in easily accessible spots, and it’s lovely to look at and handle! Brilliant work David Samuel, the hours that have been put into planning and design are clearly evident.

  9. Tom (verified owner)

    Fantastic bag. So much space and yet convenient size to carry. You’ll never need pockets again. Very well made, no need to worry about wear and tear. Highly recommend.

    I am thrilled to back this remarkable man David and his team in their creation of this product! I use this satchel so much. Adore all the pockets and storage and love the colour! <3 Such good quality product! Add this to your wardrobe and you will be smiling!

    Bought it as a gift for my husband. He changed his bag over immediately after I gave it to him. He is also still constantly amazed at the number of pockets it has where he can store his gear. It also doesn’t hurt that it is a beautiful bag.

  12. Andrew Scarborough (verified owner)

    I travel all over the world for work. This has become my “won’t leave home without it” companion. It’s perfect for on the plane and when I get on the ground. So many pockets, but not just for pocket sake. Each one is as handy as the next. Couldn’t recommend this bag more.

    I have only just given the bag to my Husband (as he is fly in fly out) and he loves it. He said it will be great for all his posessions when travelling. Its absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the Fantastic product David.

    -It has tons of compartments (especially on the inside) which I found overwhelming initially, but quickly got used to
    -Overall construction of the bag and quality of leather is top notch
    -Main compartment is secured by a magnet which I really like, since you’ll be opening and closing it quite often
