The Eventer has evolved from one of the very first bags we made, so has a genuine lineage in our history. It features a number of unique, functional and design characteristics allowing the Eventer to turn its hand to whatever task you require at the time: camera bag, briefcase, even overnight luggage.
The first and most obvious feature of the Eventer, and the one that gives the bag its distinctive look, is the protective leather base. The lower quarter is covered in the same top grain leather we use in all our products. Carefully selected and treated before it is cut and worked into the desired shape, these large pieces give the Eventer its strength and structure whilst also helping to form the two front dump pockets. These pockets share a covering flap that is secured using our ClogBall and strap system, which is used both here and again for the main rain flap.
The side patches are made from the same thick leather as the base and provide an anchor point for the shoulder sling. Solid brass fittings are used throughout, and slides on the webbing allow you to adjust the shoulder sling length to your preferred carrying or working height. Whether low slung toolbox or a safe and secure travel companion the Eventer simply works.
Binding to finish off the flaps is cut from the same vegtable tanned hides used on all of our bags.
Across the top of the main flap, a sturdy reinforcement gives the woven web handle a firm response. Safely stitched into a wide leather strap 4 across the back, the entire assembly forms part of the bags structural frame.
A removable padded insert and dividers can be used to section the inside of the bag for your camera or other gear: a full height and width divider 3 is included so you can store your laptop or tablet within the protected interior. Removing the bag's insert turns the Eventer into a roomy briefcase or overnight bag. Twin zips add security and to complete the picture, the Eventer also has a full width zippered back pocket - convenient and accessable storage for passports, tickets, maps and documents.
