"My husband uses it every day!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this as a replacement for my husbands leather satchel, which was getting beat up, and with the long hip strap, he was always banging it into things. Hes gotten into writing lately, and he uses this bag as his primary transport for his tablet and notes when he goes to writing meetups. He loves it! its sturdy, he loves the back-pack style straps, and the separate pockets for everything.

"High Value!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Free Spirit Leather Messenger Bag arrived yesterday and was packaged and gift wrapped with loving care. The bag is beautifully handcrafted and larger than we imagined. We love its diversity---able to go from a backpack to an over the shoulder bag. Its very stylish and wed recommend the bag to anyone who wants a high quality work of art. Thank You SeƱor Hinojosa for your artistry!

"I well be using this for sometime, really like."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I needed something like this (smaller)to keep my credit cards in. When I got my Wallet and opened it, I said to my self This is what I have been looking for, Great! Craft man ship is wonderful, leather is nice, just a wee bit tight sliding the cards in but that is leather for you, has to be broken in. The stitching is well done and zipper works like a dream. The color of leather is like what you see, like a medium olive green .

Best Uses

  • Keeping my few credit cards together at all times
