A vintage style satchel
« on: December 21, 2015, 06:44:18 AM »
A satchel for myself.

I've gone for a more vintage look, with no plastic hardware or velcro! 500D cordura, milspec webbing and salvaged metal buckles.

A friend of mine made the leather patch of the shield of my alma mater.

Looks great, the leather patch is a nice touch!

Interesting configuration with the spring loaded cam buckle.  In the past, I had tried to think of ways to turn that into a closed loop system so there was no loose tail.  Do you find that setup convenient?

I find pulling the cam buckle upwards to reduce the length of the strap, easier than the converse, as one would expect since the motion of lifting up the cam, whilst moving the cam downwards is rather difficult.

The 500D cordura fabric is coyote brown.

I'm looking into getting some heavy waxed canvas to make some other bags as gifts for family.

just get regular canvas and wax it yourself.
