My bags come in 3 models:

- The "Big Belly Bag", built for capacity,
- The "Day Trip Bag", a smaller model,
- The "San Luis Bag", light and of vertical form.
The "BBB" is made of vegetable tanned shoulder leather 3 to 4mm thick, in colours: natural cognac or black. It has a 12cm gusset and each bag closes with 2 straps of 20mm (robust and quick to close) or 3 straps of 15mm (better adaptation to the content). The connecting piece has two coat straps.
The "Day trip Bag" and "San Luis Bag" are made of vegetable tanned collar leather 2 to 3mm thick, in colours: natural, cognac or black. They have a 10cm gusset and each bag is closed with 2 straps of 20mm. The connecting piece has two coat straps.
The San Luis Bag can be closed with a single 25mm strap.

On the payment page of your order, you can specify the colour of leather (natural, cognac or black) and buckle (solid brass or nickeled solid brass).
