This is the snap-in Breakaway Bag that can be used with the Modular Ready configuration.

Bare Essentials Analog Bag

$254.00

Product Description

The Bare Essentials Analog Bag is the lean and clean version of it's parent, The Analog Bag. 

This is the bag that’s built to unplug you from the distractions of your electronics. Sturdy and handmade from Italian leather, we designed the Analog Bag line to NOT hold a laptop.
Why? Because it’s the Analog Bag

This bag is 11.5 inches wide by 9 inches tall.  It is 4 inches deep at the bottom and tapers to 2 inches deep at the top in order to maintain a slim profile without compromising on the amount you can organize inside of it.  Watch the video below to see what I put inside of it.  The video below is for it's parent, The Analog Bag. The snap-in Breakaway Bag is also shown on the video and in the pictures on this page so that you can decide if you would like the Modular Ready configuration but it (the Breakaway Bag) is not included with this product. You can check out the complete Analog Bag HERE

The Bare Essentials version can be ordered in one of three configurations described below.
A more detailed look can be seen in the pictures below as well.

Lean and Clean:
This version is just like the parent Analog Bag except it comes without the closure configuration and without the additional snap-in Breakaway Bag.
We add a usable leather pocket on the inside of the flap for additional weight to keep that flap down even in moderate winds.

Closure Only:
This version is just like the Lean and Clean but with the closure and without the pocket on the inside of the flap.
Like the Lean and Clean there is no snap-in configuration for the Breakaway Bag.

Modular Ready:
This version gives you the opportunity to purchase this bag now, at a lower price than the Analog Bag, and then, at a later date, get the snap-in Breakaway Bag.
It is exactly like it's parent, The Analog Bag, but without the snap-in Breakaway Bag.
It's everything the Closure Only version is but we added in the Snap-In configuration so you can add the Breakaway Bag at a later date of your choosing.

 

The Lean and Clean Configuration

analog-be-lc-compared.jpg

The most Essential of the 3 configurations.

The Lean and Clean configuration is The Analog Bag without the Closure and without the Breakaway Bag.
We do add, on this configuration only, a pocket on the inside of the flap for you to carry additional items and for heavier flap that will stay put even in medium to moderate winds.

 

Closure Only

analog-be-closeonly-compared.jpg

The same Lean and Clean configuration only with the closure added.

 

Modular Ready

analog-be-modready-compared.jpg

The only difference between the Closure Only and the Modular Ready is the Snap-In configuration.

This makes your bag ready for the snap-in Breakaway Bag for purchase at a later date.
I's the same as the Closure Only but with the added convenience of being able to add the Breakaway Bag at a later date when your timing is right.

The flap on the Modular Ready option will be a little longer than either of the 2 choices above to accommodate the Breakaway Bag when you add it.

Thru Sunday this option will be the same cost as the Closure Only.  After that the addition of the snaps will be $25 extra.

 

OUR LEATHER

leather.jpg

The leathers we use is a full grain English cowhide that is tanned at a 6th generation tannery in the Italian Alps.
It is 2.2mm thick and will be your lifelong companion.  It's tough, but soft, and built for that purpose.. not just a few years of memories... but your life's memories will be reflected in the leather in this bag as it adventures with you over time..

It's soft from the start and gets softer as you use it enabling you to put even more into your bag. There is nothing you need to do to care for it except using it vigorously.  It likes that.
It's soft & luscious full grain Italian leather with that classic leather scent, soft hand feel and deepening patina your use of it will create over time.

Our exclusive leather is tanned in the Italian Alps by a 6th generation tannery. There is simply nothing better in the world than Italian tanned leather using English cow. We worked with this tannery for 2 years to develop it and it is unavailable anywhere else except at Frye Boots. They loved our leather so much that they started using it to make their boots.
