Indy Satchel

It is a satchel but the design is called saddle bag. Never mind the confusion, its the best seller. It constantly tops the all time favorite from our collection. The winning edge perhaps is due to its simplistic, intuitive design such as 'a tyre is round'. The MTB tyre side wall compliments the heavy canvas body. Everything is tough and indestructible by the looks of it, and by the same looks of it, it never miss to catch attention. Opening the roll-up top you conveniently access the single inside pocket. Two more pockets layered at the front exterior to confuse you a bit about which one goes to where. The 1.5" combat strap complimented the entire look. Surprisingly, it appeals to any genders and to a really wide age bracket. A true novelty, it is available in several color and material variations to match your taste. *All product prices are for the Philippine Market only.

Pangolin

For lack of inspiration, Pangolin is chosen to ID this saddle design to pay tribute to the heavily poached animal in Palawan. The U-shaped big spike of the MTB tyre is a sweet comparison to mimic the amazing scales of this endangered animal and to spread awareness. To spread further and cover mileage, it is design for use as a leg bag common to motorcycle riders. The thick inner tube material framed by the sturdy MTB tyre can withstand minor crashes and protect its content better than most fabric materials. The adjustable leg strap is detachable if use as a casual sling bag. Pangolin is a head turner which is what it should be, to spread awareness. *All product prices are for the Philippine Market only.
