They might not be a household name, but this bag from Japan's Southern Field Industries definitely holds its own with the best of them. Manabu and Kieko, a husband and wife team, craft their bags right out of their home in the Saitama region of Japan, using techniques passed down from Manabu's father who crafted leather goods and accessories. Those techniques are evident in their PX Backpack, a well-crafted waxed canvas pack finished with vegetable tanned cow leather and solid brass rivet hardware. Nothing excessive here, just everything you need and don't need.
