Meet the R&R Series. Inspired by Israeli Defense Force standard issue field duffles, this bag is decidedly not standard issue and is perfect for any mission. Rugged 20 oz. truck tarpaulin exterior provides ballistic strength structure and aesthetics. The interior is lined with uber durable 500 Denier Water-Resistant Cordura, YKK zippers and hand-crafted Horween Austin Calf leather trimmed pockets. M35 Military truck tarpaulin vinyl/canvas is the same heavy duty tarpaulin used to protect US service members in theater today. It's thick, matte, rubbery feel makes for an incredibly durable bag material which with use over time starts to soften & wear nicely taking on a different patina and character. The R&R is hand-crafted on the gritty west side of Chicago using industrial machines, threads, and techniques learned from disassembling vintage military bags. The closure is a chunky, heavy duty industrial grade water repellent YKK zipper with an easy to access oversized pull with Horween Austin Calf pull tabs. The adjustable and removable Military Spec shoulder strap uses solid steel hardware commissioned from a US Military supply company. Full-grained Horween Austin Calf leather pocket, trim and strap handle are first chromium tanned, which makes the leather supple and durable, and then re-tanned with vegetable tannins — derived from tree leaves, bark, and other plant material — to allow it to patina well and to be easily shaped.
