The Street_Satchel is designed to be an essential bag that travels with you everywhere.
Slung across your back when walking the streets or on your lap in a vehicle. It carries your most essential kit and never leaves your side.
Constructed of UHMWPE fabric and webbing, with customised YKK zips and sliders, the Street_Satchel is lightweight, discreet and durable.
Our gear is built to be ignored. Nothing flashy. Nothing eye catching. Easily forgotten (except by you).
We've selected the strongest and lightest materials in their class. Our gear is resistant to abrasion, tearing and other abuse.
We've considered weight in every design element. Each fabric, strap or component is as light as it needs to be.
We've developed a small ecosystem of modular components that extend the utility of our bags.
All wearing parts are replaceable. As we improve on aspects of design, you'll be able to upgrade your gear.
We use our own bags exclusively. This living field test provides us the feedback we need to continually improve our products.
All of our gear anticipates poor weather. Even if you're not ready for a sudden downpour, your gear will be.
We've paid attention to every aspect of design and materials, from the major features to the smallest stitch.
Our gear is designed for the long haul. All materials are selected for longevity under difficult conditions. Your bag may even outlive you.
Our Hidden_Pocket feature is built into all of our gear. This is a simple but discreet pocket for you to store documents. The pocket is designed to make it difficult to detect using an X-Ray or during a cursory manual search. There are no zips or closures on these sections to make them difficult to detect. They’re also ‘deniable’, in the sense that—if found—they won’t seem like they’re designed not to be detected. Crafty but not too crafty.
A quick-release mechanism that enables a strap to be quickly released to either drop the bag or to free the wearer from entanglement.
Reinforced handles designed to drag the bag (and the person carrying the bag) without breaking.
During design and prototyping, we experimented with dozens of fabrics - Cordura, HyperD, Robic Ripstop Nylon, X-Pac, different grades of DCF, and others. We've narrowed down to two types of fabric that use Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) material of different types and grades.
Other materials include customised YKK zips, acetal hardware and Fidlock magnetic fasteners.
More details are provided on the respective product pages.
'Mil-Spec' is an overused term used to make civilian gear appear 'tough'. Mil-Spec equipment tends to be heavy and over built. The weight of cheap but durable fabrics, superfluous webbing and clips, and other hardware adds up.
Our gear is not Mil-Spec. Nothing we make is designed for combat operations. Instead, our gear is designed for years of sustained use in real-world environments.
In fact, we've expressly avoided making our gear appear tactical or military. The use of MOLLE, PALS and other military features make bags less discreet and is more likely to garner unwanted attention.
