⊙ MATERIAL: These bags are beautifully crafted from quality canvas and leather. A padded waterproof layer weatherproofs the bag and helps to keep the contents of the bag dry in light rain showers.
⊙ DETAIL: The stitching is strong, neat, and complements the curves of the bag. The brass buckles and studs offer durability and aesthetic detail to the overall look of the bag.
⊙ STRAPS: The handles and straps are made from thick woven canvas. The bag comes with detachable backpack straps and shoulder strap.
⊙ ZIPS: The durable zips have leather tags to make zipping and unzipping easy on the hands. The main compartments have lockable zips that allow a padlock to be fed through to keep the contents of your bag safe.
⊙ ADJUSTABLE COMPARTMENTS: Inside this bag are padded 'walls' that can be adjusted with Velcro to fit your camera and camera equipment. These can also be removed, turning the bag into a large space for gear and clothing.
• We strongly suggest you lock each attachment onto the main bag by inserting a lock through the joining zips.
• We do not recommend that you use this bag as a camera bag while it is attached to the main bag, especially at the airport, as it may get damaged during transport. This bag is only to be used as a camera bag while detached from the main bag.
• The 4-in-1 Bag is made predominantly for use as a satchel as the backpack straps sit quite low down on the back of the bag. When being used as a backpack, please thread the straps through the handle in order to get the best fit. When used like this, it is advisable to keep the contents of the bag light.
• A note about luggage handlers & ground staff in Africa: We stand by the quality of the construction of our leather range and the quality of the safari-grade leather we use to make our bags. We have also expedition tested all of our leather luggage so that we know just how tough it is. Leather is, however, a fabric and, as with all fabrics, it has its limitations. While cases are few and far between and we have not experienced puncturing on our own safaris and expeditions, fabric, by its very nature, is able to puncture or tear if subjected to force, sharp objects, if thrown along an abrasive surface, or other forms of harsh handling. We urge any clients who have their luggage damaged by luggage handlers & ground staff to contact us for a quote to submit to their travel insurance to make a claim.
