You know what makes a leather bag durable – that it’s built from the finest Full-Grain Vegetable-Tanned leather in the U.S. It’s a bag riveted together with solid brass rivets that wont wear out over time. There’s no stitching to break. I designed this leather bag to last a lifetime and put up with the heavy use that you’ll give it.

This bag, or leather briefcase is big enough to fit your books, laptop, notes and all your carry goods. It has one large central storage area, an optional interior pockets addon, as well as a back separated pocket, closed with a snap, where you can store your notes, and slimmer items. Behind the back pocket are two straps that snap into place in case you need to stuff a newspaper on the outside. The sides are secured with solid brass, nickel-plated rivets that will last a lifetime. The leather briefcase has an adjustable slide so you can wear it at any height, tall or short - and includes a widened shoulder flap to help distribute the weight. The handle is made from comfortably wrapped leather attached to two straps. The front flap is secured via two buckles, allowing for a tight fit no matter how much you carry.
Storage Pockets Addon: All briefcases will come with interior military grade snaps that can be used to attach the optional Storage Pockets addon. The pockets each measure 6 inches wide x 5 inches tall. One has a flap closed by a button stud, the other is open to easily fit your phone or other items. Also attached to the top of the open pocket is a small keyring you can use to clip your keys to.
Please note this bag may come with markings, small scratches and other manly features, it is a testament to real authentic Full-Grain leather, and a part of what this bag is all about. Handle it rough and it'll be just fine.
I cut, brand, stamp, dye, oil and wax and assemble each leather bag by hand. Every bag also comes with a tin of my own all-natural Spiff N' Shine - a conditioner made here in the workshop - meant to keep high quality leather goods in high quality shape.
Hardware change note: the shoulder strap now contains two steel clips on either end that clip onto the hardware on the sides of the bag.
Be sure to select your preferred color as I cannot offer exchanges on this item.

Please note that Mr. Lentz does not use any toxic materials in his shop or process and has chosen not to coat his leather goods with toxic water resistant sprays. He does use an all natural mixture of olive oil and beeswax to help with water resistance, but water on the outside of the case is best avoided to prevent spotting. You may choose to coat your messenger bag with water repellent sprays as needed.
THE CREATION OF YOUR WALLET (applies to all Mr. Lentz Leather Goods)
Now, there aren't too many people makin' wallets with as much care as I do, so I thought I would share the process with y'all:
♦Every morning Mr. Lentz wakes up and brews a pot of Cowboy Coffee, you know - the grainy type with a bit of grind still left in the cup. Sippin' on this, he enters his workshop and pulls out a large 'side' of raw, full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather. Usually a roll of about 24 square feet, of leather smellin' goodness. From this roll he will plan out the day's cuts, which pieces will be best used for wallets, and where the most interesting natural markings lay. Mr. Lentz will then start the cutting and punching process, shaping the wallet down to the millimeter using a series of sharp knives and precision cutting tools.
♦From there, it will be carried over to the Mr. Lentz logo branding machine, a beast of a tool that is capable of over a thousand degrees of heat. The brand is set in place and the logo is impressed on the surface...a sweet smell of singed leather fills the air with a puff of steam. Next, the wallet is carried over to the sequential number machine, where Mr. Lentz first sprays on a bit of water into place before adjusting the machine and pulling down on the lever to set the numbers deep into the leather. This number signifies the order in which the wallet or other leather good was made in the history of Mr. Lentz Leather Goods. It is sequential right from the start of Mr. Lentz's early work, and he has a book to account for every item and number marked.
♦If you chose to personalize your wallet, then Mr. Lentz will heat up another branding tool, as well capable of over 1,000 degrees. The letters are hand placed into the tool in the old-fashioned typesetter's way, then the wallet is again sprayed with a mist of water. Mr. Lentz will hold the branding tool above the wallet, carefully aligning the initials in place, then with a quick and brisk movement, the numbers are pressed and held into place as the tool brands the leather.
♦The wallet is then set out to dry in the natural heat and wind of the Southwest's desert air for several hours. Once fully dry, the wallet is brought over to be oiled and conditioned. Mr. Lentz is proud to say that he makes his own leather conditioner from all-natural materials as well. It is the same leather conditioner that he ships free with every wallet as a can of Spiff N' Shine (also hand-filled! ) The wallet is set on a table and rubbed down from side to side with a few layers of an oil-wax mixture. This process is then repeated on the backside and over again until the wallet has fully absorbed just the right amount as to be soft and pliable.
♦Once oiled, every wallet is hand-buffed with a soft cloth before each rivet is placed into the leather, one by one. The rivets are assembled together with several hundred pounds of force, creating a super-durable and tight fit... one that will last a long long time. The wallet is then hand hammered into shape, thus keeping its tightly made corners and folds.
♦Each wallet is then fit with a paper sleeve made from recycled materials, and attached with a free tin of Mr. Lentz Spiff N' Shine. Then, finally - after a day or so of work - it is off to the postal service to make its way to you and your pocket. It will last you a long long time.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed hearing about all of the work that went into this purely handcrafted piece of leather goodness!
