    "I am roaring drunk with the lust of life and adventure and unbearable beauty."

    Everett Ruess wrote those words a few months before his disappearance into the barren Utah desert. A bold adventurer, artist, and writer, he tramped around the Southwest between the ages of 16 and 20 with one goal: oneness with nature. In 1934, at the age of twenty, he vanished. His body was never found. His legend lives on.

    26 June 1931
    Two of the men generously contrived a pack saddle for me from three broken ones. We had several well-worn models of this vintage leather messenger bag, and we just didn't feel good about them. Something just wasn't right, not generous enough. So we took the whole lot of leather messenger bags and contrived this one. It truly resembles a pack-saddle carried on your shoulder. The Everett Men's Vintage Leather Messenger Bag; this one we feel good about. You could say it is a thing of unbearable beauty.

    The leather color can vary between darker and lighter hues due to the handcrafted nature of the tanning process. As the bag ages, it will slowly develop a deeper and richer patina, adding even more to the character to the bag.
