Equipped for one night.
Whether privately or professionally, it can often happen that you only have to stay for one night or take everything with you as a precaution. Then the laptop bag is too small, the on-board suitcase or the travel bag already too big. Allistair Croot has also made this experience. In the fortunate position of being able to design and manufacture bags in his own company, he was able to remedy the situation himself and manufactured this weekender from strong, 1.5 mm thick leather in the style of the laptop bag. Construction and partitioning are almost identical, but the Weekender is significantly deeper at 17 cm. Thus, in addition to documents and laptop still fresh laundry and a small toilet bag fit inside.
From the outside quite businesslike and serious, the bag shines inside with its bold red lining made of heavy cotton fabric. It is fully padded and thus protects laptop or tablet. The spacious main compartment has three slip pockets on the side for chargers and cables. A large document compartment closes with a snap fastener, and two attached leather pockets can hold a phone, calculator or writing utensils. Two zippered compartments on the outside offer further storage space. The carrying handles made of 4 mm thick saddle leather are worked all around, so that they additionally stabilize the bag on the ground.
British Craft. Bags from Croots
The British label Croots is one of the leather goods manufacturers that have virtually earned the reputation of a traditional company in a short time. So it doesn't always take centuries of experience, but first and foremost you have to understand your craft and then use the right materials. This is what John and Margaret Smith had in mind when, in 1978, they produced the first bags and cases for hunting and fishing under the "Field Sports Products" label: in the traditional way and using solid materials such as strong saddle leather and robust cotton canvas. Later, travel bag and small leather goods are added. When daughter Jackie and son-in-law Allistair Croot took over the business in 2004, they changed nothing about it, except for the name. Since then, "Croots" has become a byword for British craftsmanship and solid bags worldwide, and even the royal family owns a few Croots bags.
The bags are designed and manufactured at the company's site in Malton, North Yorkshire. The materials also come from the island: the weaving takes place in Keighley, West Yorkshire, the waxed cotton canvas is sourced from the traditional Scottish manufacturer Halley Stevensons at Croots, and the fittings come from foundries in Walsall, West Midlands, or Sheffield. Only the zippers are sourced by Croots from Riri in Switzerland. Finally, the leather is vegetable tanned and processed in the best saddlery manner. Mostly it is so-called English Bridle Leather, which is mainly used for saddles, bridles and belts, because it hardly gives thanks to a special tanning.
