This is the 2nd edition of the Thin Front Pocket Leather Backpack with a few changes that I think you’ll love. The original backpack was everyone’s favorite and we rarely got a complaint, but I made some slight changes that may be overkill, but they’re more consistent with our lowest possible seam-feet approach to design. The backpack is still built without breakable parts like zippers, magnets, velcro, or snaps and is still reinforced at all stress points with hidden polyester straps and strong rivets. The body of the leather backpack is still only built with two big solid pieces of leather, but now all three front pockets of the backpack are all made of just one solid piece of leather. You see, the fewer seams a leather backpack has, the fewer seams there are to start a rip. And not only that, but we only allow 5 stitches per inch of our seams so there is more leather between holes and therefore fewer holes to start a tear. I once interviewed a second-generation sailmaker in New Zealand and he referred to a sewing machine as a perforation machine and said the fewer holes, the stronger the sail. That stuck with me. It’s the same with this leather backpack.
