Mk I Version

The Street_Satchel Mk I DCF is being produced in limited quantities. The reason behind this isn’t exclusivity, but rather the constraints we face in sourcing materials and our limited production capacity. Consequently, we’re only able to create these bags in small batches. When a batch sells out, please be aware that it may take some time before we can produce and offer another set.

Key Features

Just enough features. Nothing extraneous.

Weatherproof materials and construction. Enough to survive an equitorial downpour. Not enough to be used as a flotation device to get across a river.

Slimline construction. You can flatten the satchel and slip it into another bag or you can wear it under a jacket.

Lightweight. If you didn't put anything in the satchel, you probably wouldn't notice you're wearing it.

The sleeve inside the main compartment will fit a 14-inch Macbook Pro or Macbook Air (in a form-fitting case).


Just enough organisation

The Street_Satchel features two compartments: a spacious main compartment and a handy front compartment.

Inside the main compartment, you'll find a dedicated laptop section that accommodates a 14-inch MacBook Pro. A Hidden_Pocket behind the laptop area provides space for A4-sized documents. Consistent with our design principles, the laptop section has no padding, but we've included a stitch along the base to prevent the laptop from resting on the bottom of the bag.

The front compartment houses an organiser panel with two versatile pockets, perfect for items like a small notebook, pen, satellite communicator, or a few rolls of film. Additionally, there's another Hidden_Pocket within the front section, ideal for storing your passport, AirTag, and a couple of SD cards.


Dyneema Composite Fabric

We've carefully selected fabrics for their durability, light weight and water resistance.

The DCF CT9HK.18/wov6 is a hybrid DCF fabric, with an additional polyester fabric on the outside. This material uses 2.15 oz/yd 2 DCF for the inner layer and a 150D polyester plain-weave face fabric. The polyester face fabric adds strength and makes the material look more like a traditional woven fabric.

DCF will wear over time to develop a slightly rumpled matte finish. While initially the material will feel stiff and 'crinkly', it will soften over time without losing its capabilities. It will also develop a nice patina over time.


Customised YKK zips for each application

The main compartment of the bag features a custom-ordered #8 YKK racquet coil zip in a reverse deployment. Its zip tape is coated with matte black PU for water resistance. The zip has head-to-head sliders and includes a locking mechanism for added security. With a matte black oxide finish, the zip slider is scratch-resistant, non-reflective, and wears gently to develop a pleasant patina over time. Easy-to-use Kevlar cord zip pullers are attached to the slider, allowing for smooth operation even while wearing gloves.

The front compartment uses a #5 YKK AQUAGUARD zip with a locking slider. The zip pull tab is designed to fold flat against the bag for a sleek look. Like the main zip, the slider also features a matte black oxide finish.


No hardware (at least, not on the bag)

The Street_Satchel is designed without permanent hardware. Plastic hardware can degrade over time, especially in humid conditions. By attaching hardware to the more affordable component (the sling) rather than the costly one (the bag), we ensure that replacing a worn-out sling is much more economical than replacing the entire satchel.

After evaluating various hardware options, we chose acetal hardware from South Korea because it outperforms nylon hardware. It remains unaffected by water exposure or humidity.

Attachment points

Strong and lightweight accessory attachment points

We've included 25mm webbing tabs on the satchel as attachment points for upcoming optional accessories, currently being prototyped. These tabs are made of UHMWPE – a lightweight, flexible, and super-strong material that's more than up to the task.

The satchel comes with a shoulder sling crafted from 40mm polyester webbing. Polyester outperforms nylon in humid conditions as it absorbs less water and odour. Plus, the sling is fitted with customised three-point quick-release acetal hardware, which holds up better than nylon hardware in damp and wet environments.
