Fantastic. Inspiration for me to get some leather and start learning

Oregon has it's fair share of rain. I would have treated the leather with some sort of oil/wax waterproofing to avoid saturation if you are caught in heavy weather. Once the patches are on it's too late. It possible to Scotchgard the patches after the fact, but what's underneath is untreated. Don't get me wrong I like patches too. I sewed on a large loop panel onto my canvas bag so I could add lots of velcro backed patches and swap them out as I choose. It's true you can have a lot of patches, but I find all at once is overwhelming. One day I might make a leather back pack like yours. It's really nice to know it's truly yours on a level that money and market can't touch. There are a lot of such things for sale on Etsy, and you're right they cost a lot. Thanks for the video.

I'm new to this is there a reason you hand drill the dots to stitch compared to using a machine to sow.?
Ray Calloway (7 months ago)

How heavy is the bag? Leather is heavier than other materials. My guess is 2 lbs.

Edwardsjohanna (10 months ago)
Thank you so much for this video. I have a waxed canvas backpack that I have taken with me around the world traveling. It has seen a lot and been through a lot and is on its last leg of life. I already have leather I purchased to recreate this same bag but have lacked the courage to jump in and start this project. I believe I’ve just found the best video for me to attempt this pride to. Thank you so much 😊

Hy Darbin! I really love your video and congrats on the great backpack! I would like to ask if the pattern is avaiable somewhere to buy?I would really like to make a bag like yours! Cheers from Hungary!

Awesome looking back pack. What type of leather did you use? I would like to make one for my motorcycle that I can strap to the passenger backrest. Keep up the great videos. Thank you

I just got into leatherworking myself, though I still need to pick up some more stuff for stitching; I decided to start off carving, stamping and tooling to get practice with those before moving on to constructing/stitching, so seeing this was really an inspiration. Honestly, I'm not sure if you really could find a leather bag like that for sale as something other than a custom order, and the fact that you made your own means that it will always be unique because it contains aesthetic and functional choices that reflect you, your personality and your creativity. Many years back, when talking to my father about something else, I got what I consider to be the best piece of advice pertaining to crafting; almost all projects start off simple, but very few remain that way for long. I've really taken that to heart and just accepted that even if what I was originally shooting for was something simple, I just have to go in whatever direction the project wants to take and trust that it will all turn out all right in the end.

It's hard to make a simple leather backpack. But you nailed it by making a complicated one with ease. Thanks for this cool video/ build!

can someone tell me where I can find the same type of leather
Bobalob (1 year ago)
A question aimed at leather workers.. I was taught to use a picking iron and a harness awl to make the markings/holes for my stitches. Is the tool you're using in this video a different tool than a picking iron and why would you use this instead? Thanks to anyone who can help.
Becky Kastelz (1 year ago)
Its amazing!! I can see exactly why you LOVE it, thanks for telling such a sweet story =)

Love your back pack! How thick is the leather?
Kaitlyn W (1 year ago)
I've always wanted to make something out of leather, this is such a good inspiration. Also, I love this music!

I hear you about the patches; when you have an item like this that has been added to over time, it gives it that "well traveled" feel, especially if some of the patches are a touch dirty and some are cleaner, showing which ones have been there longer and which ones are more recent.

Darbin Orvar (1 year ago)
Japp 😊
RoccosPlace1 (1 year ago)
The rain guard you added makes the pack look like an Aussie drover coat, sweet. That's why I am a subscriber, leather and wood, two for one. Did you do a video on that box you keep your leather fittings in the bottom and (I assume) tools in the top?
Darbin Orvar (1 year ago)
Yes, there is a video about the leather tool box.

Carmen Chang (1 year ago)
Hello! Was just wondering what kind of leather and thickness you're using for the bag. Is it chrome tanned? Thanks for the great video!
Maxima (1 year ago)
Linn, looks like you might need a bigger support strap under your water bottle
Maxima (1 year ago)
Linn grwat job. I hope a clothing company sponsors you. Your fashion is on point.

Joan Perez (1 year ago)
Wow! One of the most inspirational pieces ever. It's wonderful to look at but you strike such a special chord when you mention keeping this bag for many years, using patches to mark new adventures. THAT is a life lived well! I am glad we live in a time when someone like you can share these types of things. This project moved me.

Craig Hanson (1 year ago)
I skinned a leather couch, Jimmy Diresta style. Your backpack has me inspired to get some leather working tools and get to making something with it. I wasn't sure about the patches, but you're right, it does look better than just beautiful leather. Will get even better still with use. Turned out great. Like your leather working vids, and the toolbox too. Thanks Lynn
Thomas Yngvesson (1 year ago)
Best part of having this beautiful bag is when people ask "Where did you get that amazing bag?!"......Made it myself !!!!!!!! AWESOME
Darbin Orvar (1 year ago)
Exactly! :)
Brian Bain (1 year ago)
That turned out really nice. I think some sheepskin padding on the straps would look great.
Darbin Orvar (1 year ago)
I love that idea.
