Our Santa Fe Collection continues to be the workhorse and best selling collection of our product lineup. We routinely see well loved and well traveled pieces in pictures all over the globe which speaks to it's versatility, durability and the overall true spirit of adventure it encompasses.
"Vaqueta" leather is world renown for its buttery soft feel which makes our Santa Fe styles the perfect everyday collection for your adventures. A soft and supple leather that will lighten overtime and continue to soften demonstrates the beautiful patina and feel your beloved leather good will acquire with each use.
I brought this backpack specifically for work. In a big girl, 6ft, 320lbs and this fits well with my body frame and holds all my necessities. The only thing i regret is not being able to purchase the tan color at the same time. Im saving for it though! Excellent quality having a soft leather touch, just as good as the overly expensive fashion brands!
What else is left for me to say about these amazing products? Nothing but worth every penny, so in love with all my Land items.
As a loyal Land customer of at least 25 years and being familiar with the Santa Fe quality, I decided to purchase this back pack. The design and functionality are the redeeming features of this bag. I was surprised at the flimsiness of the bag. Possibly the processes for curing leather have changed and in an effort to provide a lighter bag as the Santa Fe collection was always quite heavy . This bag though , is not the high quality leather that I expect from the Land brand, there isn’t even the familiar leather smell, the hardware is lightweight and I don’t believe it will stand the test of time. Very unfortunate and disappointing.
Hi Trudy! Thanks for your feedback! We do continue to use the same high quality full & top grain leathers that we have used for over 50 years. Occasionally we do skive the leather differently depending on the style; some styles require a thicker hide and some require thinner. Our hardware is also the same that we have always used on our Santa Fe Collection so I am confident it will hold up to the test of time. It's worth noting this specific style does not have a lot of hardware compared to our other Santa Fe items. If there is anything else we can help you with, please do let us know!
