Constructed with 100% heavy duty 16 oz waxed cotton canvas, this bag proudly originates from the USA.

The adjustable leather straps are crafted from soft 6oz. full grain cowhide and develop a beautiful patina over time. The bag is equipped with a drawstring cord for secure closure, and its interior is lined for easy cleaning with a damp rag or soap and water if heavily soiled. Additional wax or beeswax can be added to maintain the canvas finish.
