Size and Fit
56 x 30 x16.5 cm
To maintain the beauty of your Elk bag we recommend protective sprays and using a good quality leather conditioner to treat the product, which will increase its longevity. Do not put leather pieces on the ground or rub against abrasive surfaces. Leather is a natural material and will wear with age and use. Our best advice is to select the appropriate design and size bag for its intended use. Smaller bags are not designed to carry heavy or bulky loads - make the right choice for the right purpose.
Vegetable tanned products may vary slightly in colour and finish due to their natural manufacture processes.
