Our first product extension from boots comes in collaboration with an exceptional American-made brand, Loyal Stricklin. When I first saw the Nashville-based wares, I was impressed, and when I saw the Rayland in all leather, I was blown away. I had a wild thought to use our Kudu leather on this backpack - reached out to Loyal Stricklin - and here we are. This bag is truly an heirloom piece - each bag takes at least 1 Full Hide of Kudu leather (pretty damn costly). Nevertheless, if you are lucky enough to get your hands on a bag, you surely will not regret it.
This bag has the shape and aesthetic of a classic JanSport, but will turn heads with its leather and hardware, while lasting a lifetime with its meticulously crafted quality.
The specs for the Rayland Backpack include:
- Dimensions: 18" x 11" x 5.5"
- Leather - Rust Kudu Genuine Antelope (C.F. Stead, England)
- Straps - 9 oz Horween Brown CXL (Chicago, USA)
- Solid Brass Hardware
- One large main compartment with one front zippered pocket
- Interior Laptop Pocket

- Copper Rivets
Please allow 6-8 weeks for shipping as this is a PRE-ORDER
Each bag will be handcrafted by the fine folks at Loyal Stricklin at their workshop in Nashville, TN
