The Browning Pack
is back-ordered. We will ship it separately in 10 to 15 days.
The Browning Pack is the epitome of an overly engineered, overly built product that is beautiful because of its robustness. The Browning Pack is made entirely of the Horween Leather Company's latigo leather in both a 4-5 ounce weight and a 8-9 ounce weight. The body of the bag is made from the thinner (but still very thick for a backpack) 4-5 ounce latigo, while the tray bottom, the flap, straps, and handle are all made from luxurious, thick 8-9 ounce leather. Latigo leather is vegetable tanned, which means it is more durable than other tannages, which means it has a firmer hand, and which means that it is more environmentally friendly.
The leather used for the Browning Pack is truly impressive, but the impressiveness is not limited to just th leather. The hardware is all solid, cast brass, ensuring this pack will survive a lifetime of use, and then some. The front zipper is an oversized, brass, YKK zipper that is robust and sure to keep your contents safe.
The Browning Pack is sewn together using tough bonded nylon thread and is double stitched in higher stress areas virtually eliminating the possibility of the bag ever coming apart. The bag is further strengthened with no less than 21 hand hammered brass rivets which provide additional support in high stress areas, but which also provide an attractive, industrial look to the bag.
The inside of the Browning Pack contains an all leather sleeve for up to a 15" laptop or tablet, as well as an accessory sleeve for your phone, iPod, or other similar device. The inside is spacious enough to pack the gear you need for a long weekend and the cinch top provides the means to keep your contents protected from the weather.
The Browning Pack is built to last a lifetime and to be handed down to your favorite child.

John Browning grew up in a pioneer family who trekked from Nauvoo, Illinois to Mormon country in Utah. His pioneering roots surely had an influence on his novel approach to firearms and the design of some of the most used and repeated designs in firearms history. Designs that can be attributed to Browning include, but are not limited to the M1911 Pistol, the Browning Hi Power Pistol, the Browning .50 caliber machine gun, the Browning automatic rifle, and the Browning Auto-5.
Browning was legendary for his novel approach to firearm design that resulted in highly reliable and effective firearms. A tireless innovator and experimenter, Browning died at the age of 71 while working on yet another design that was to become the Browning Hi Power Pistol. Here was a man devoted to his work and to the idea of constant improvement.
Make it Strong Enough - Then Double It
This phrase, make it strong enough, then double it, is attributed to the legendary John Browning. It was his mantra in how he designed his firearms so that they would be reliable and robust. This same phrase could be the mantra of Thrux Lawrence, based out of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. Founded by Tanden Lauder with the simple goal of making goods that last, Thrux Lawrence has become manufacturer of goods meant to outlast their purchaser.
Tandon long had a fascination with antiques and items that were highly functional and made very well. He collected such items as a teenager and was became disappointed by modern day standards of product design and manufacturing. He set out to create a brand that would be synonymous with the highest of standards and with products that were built by artisans, in America, and that would last a lifetime.
Thrux Lawrence's approach to design is summed up on their site, "We start with the fundamental concept: “This design needs to be better, last longer, and function more smoothly.” We continually examine our collection to identify keys to longevity, and style. Once we combine the details, refine the function, and add “heft” to materials, we prototype the item, field test it, then collaborate with artisans for the build." The Japanese call this commitment to continues improvement, kaizen, and that idea is imbedded in the psyche of Tanden and all of Thrux Lawrences employees.
