Mini Dan Bag

$350.00

Product Description

This bag is available in all 8 of our leather colors and leather lined in varying degrees, depending on the leather.
We did not have time to photograph this bag in all of our leather colors for this special so some of the description videos and pictures may be of the bag with the closure.
This bag is about $50 less in cost and does NOT have the closure.
The Heavier Brown and Black have limited leather lining while the softer leathers are completely leather lined.
The main purpose for this is the balance between weight and function.

The Mini Dan bag comes in in 2 styles, with or without the closure.  This one is without the closure.  You can see the one with the closure by clicking HERE.

Read below and watch the video for a full description of the bag.

This bag has a 1.5” wide infinitely adjustable strap which means that however much you put in it, it will remain comfortable on a long journey.

Measuring in at a compact yet spacious 11” X 9” X 5.5” (width x height x depth) the Mini Dan bag boasts big potential in a diet size package. With a flat rear pocket, clutter free internal compartment, front pocket, and secret storage pouch, the Mini Dan has mighty space. The bottom of the bag is double walled for durability and protection.

First off... OUR LEATHER

Our leather comes from a 6th generation tannery in the Italian Alps just outside of Venice, Italy.
The Heavier Rustic Brown and Black are 2.2mm thick.  The Flight Jacket is 1.5mm thick.  All of them are as one customer said, "...to die for. Not to soft, not to stiff, not to thick not to thin, just perfect."  You will not find this leather anywhere else.  The patina developed over time will not only enrich it's look and make you the envy of others but it will draw you in and inspire you as it moves from one refill to the next over time.  This is a leather that you will not want to let go of.

There is nothing you need to do our leathers to care for them. Use them vigorously and without mercy.  Scratch it and it will heal when rubbed.
That is one of the beauties of our leather... elegant, soft and luscious yet nearly bombproof.  There is no need to pamper it.  Just use it and know it is developing an inner beauty as you do.

Unbranded English cow are the hides we use for our leather.  They are all a byproduct of the meat eating industry.  It is the responsible use of available resources.
There is simply nothing better in the world than Italian tanned leather using English cow. We worked with our Italian tannery for 2 years to develop our leather 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.  That should tell you something about it's durability.

THIS BAG COMES WITHOUT THE CLOSURE.

The Heavy Brown, Heavy Black and Flight Jacket leathers have limited leather lining while the other softer leathers are completely leather lined.
