Lotuff Leather Revives All-Leather Backpack

Joe and Rick Lotuff, brothers and the design team behind Lotuff Leather, have been preserving traditional American craftsmanship for generations. The pair sites their parents and grandparents as primary influences on their commitment to producing high-quality, made-in-America leather goods. Now the brand has reissued its particularly popular leather backpack after months of backorders, appealing to men seeking an alternative to the ubiquitous messenger bag or traditional briefcase. Formerly a wait-list only item, the bag is available now, and we suggest you hurry given its previous popularity and limited availability.

Constructed of vegetable-tanned leather in the brand’s Norwalk, Connecticut factory, the backpack is a marriage of aesthetics and functionality. Three separate interior pockets, including a zippered one, are perfect for storing a laptop and documents. Additional exterior pockets at the top and back easily hold a tablet, passport, or other small items that require easy access. Yet all this storage space hardly sacrifices style: with a fully leather interior and gold-tone buckles, this backpack easily compares to any briefcase. So if you’re still using your backpack from high school (you know, the one with all those extraneous straps and buckles intended for mountaineering), look no further and wait no longer for an upgrade.

Lotuff’s Leather Backpack ($1,200) is available online now.
