why this product

This convertible leather tote is made from vegetable tanned leather, which has been dyed, finished and waxed by hand. The solid brass hardware on the side unbuttons so that you can use the bag as a sling carrier for heavier loads and longer items, such as logs. Carry some firewood to the bonfire, then button the tote back up again to take home the leftover hot dogs and marshmallows.

use & care

Adjust the straps to carry the bag by hand or on your shoulder, as preferred. Unbutton the sides of the bag to create a sling to carry firewood or other long items.  

Care for the leather by conditioning periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax as well as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent cracking.

production & design

An intrepid traveler, Andrew McAteer found that the available bags, carriers and accessories on the market didn't properly suit his on-the-go gear requirements, and he began to design and make his own goods. Working out of a small workshop in Astoria, New York, Andrew creates products that he needs, and by extension, that others might also hopefully find useful.
