It is said in the army when preparing for a mission, “bring only what you need.” In the world of exploration, “bring only what you need.” And again in setting out to scale a mountain “bring only what you need.”

Our Hunter Satchel is reminiscent of the satchels of colonial days – carried by the likes of George Washington, of the Possibles Bag from Mountain Men traversing the American frontier in the early 1880s, and of the military map cases strapped to the backs of soldiers who fought bravely in WWII. Each bag was designed to simply carry the essential items of their time and circumstance. Constructed from waxed canvas, vegetable-tanned leather and vintage fabric from the late 1800s, our Hunter Satchel continues this legacy for our day. Whether it be a journal, pens, pencils and a few snacks for a walk in the woods, or a wallet, keys and phone for a night excursion on the city streets, the Hunter Satchel is perfectly sized to bring only what you need.

Our vegetable tanned leather comes from Wickett & Craig – only a stone’s throw from our shop in Philadelphia – they use a slow, natural, and eco-friendly process of tanning raw hides with natural, biodegradable extracts derived entirely from vegetable sources such as tree bark.

Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.

- Leather strap and clasp from vegetable-tanned leather

Emmett, our laser engraving machine and in-house scribe, allows you to personalize our bags!

    Hunters Satchel in Raddish!

    After much deliberation I ordered the Hunters Satchel in Raddish! I absolutely love it! Very well made and a good size! I use it every day! I was nervous ordering the red but needn’t to have been as it’s a muted red and goes with everything!

    Awesome quick carry bag!

    I'd been wanting the Hunter satchel for awhile. When the sale came up, I decided to get it. It's perfect! I love the way it hangs on my body, the space available for my things, and the durability. I love Peg and Awl. I have purchased several things from them, both from their site and the ETSY shop. I've received quick shipping from both, and have not been disappointed yet. I really want the Little Rogue backpack, and that will be next!

    The last time I bought

    The last time I bought a new bag was.....20 yrs ago?! It's not easy to find a beauty, like the Hunter Satchel. I love my decades old messenger bag, but on a recent rip I spent more time looking for run-away things like KEYS, and a certain PENCIL; and after one too many frustrations I promised myself I'd buy a Hunter Satchel. Sturdy, old-timey materials and craftsmanship: brass fittings, heavy leather strap and canvas. The perfect size: big enough for glasses, purse, phone, pencil case and, most importantly of all, an iPad. Not big enough for the small things to play hide 'n seek. Simple and elegant, just the way I like it. Thanks for keeping it real.
