Awesome Bag

The perfect bag that exceeded my expectations. Exactly what I was looking for.

Almost perfect

fantastic bag. Why only 4 stars? for a little more other leather bags include a dust bag and have an all leather strap that feels just a touch more prestigious. However, if you've never bought from this company do yourself a favor and start. they are great. Quality USA products and fantastic customer service.

Awesome bag.

I am a few weeks into EDCing my Maverick, and I am really appreciating it so far. The finish is unique, and beautiful - it marks very easily, but should produce a unique patina as it wears through use. It smells great, fits and carries comforatably on your shoulder, and is just the right size for a laptop, a few dockets, wallet, passport, headphones and a few other essentials. The only thing that I am still a little on the fence about is the closure strap. When the bag is packed out it seems to align nicely, when the bag is understuffed, the closure is often a little crooked - unsightly compared to the other wise ultra sleek profile. Hopefully with break in it will sort itself out.

Will I need to put my iPad Pro or MacBook in a sleeve?

It's not necessary. The Maverick has two built-in compartments that will snugly hold your devices.

How should I treat the leather?

We don't recommend doing anything. The first scratch or nick will may shock you but it's on it's way to developing a beautiful patina.

Does the Maverick come with a shoulder pad?

Yes, the Maverick comes with a removable, matching leather shoulder pad.
