RJL LTD Explorer's FIELD BAG Type II By Vermilyea Pelle Olive Canvas & Horween Harness
We had an idea in our head of the ultimate Field bag, and set out to find the one Artisan that could make these bags for us that we had been dreaming up in our heads. We had used so many bags from many different companies over our many years in the adventure and exploration industry, even from the greats like that big company that went mainstream in the Pacific Northwest. Nothing we used held up in the end or had the materials we desired so much for our ultimate field bag. So as fate would have it we came across Dustin at Vermilyea Pelle a truly Amazing little company. He was handmaking and designing some incredible products and we knew he was the one for this great mission. All it took was a few conversations of explaining this great bag we had in our minds eye for so many years and Dustin took it from there.
So here you have it, the Final Creation that came from the mind of this true artisan and creative genius. We Present to you The Explorer's Field Bag Type II! A Co-branded bag that we hope will accompany you on all of your greatest Adventures. We would love to see photos of this bag in use start coming in from the first purchasers as the years go by.
Vermilyea Pelle has made these painstakingly by hand one bag at a time, with an incredible attention to detail. With the natural grains in the Horween Harness starting to show immediately no two bags will ever look the same and of course will always age differently depending on the Great years of exploration or pavement pounding you have planned for it.

MADE IN THE USA BY HAND
For over 25 years now I have worked in the industry, working with a private clientele. Outfitting those discerning ladies and gentlemen with the best money can buy, not the most expensive. Unique items that you can hand down to your children and they will proudly use. My Company RJL Limited offers many unique items. Most made by hand and in limited numbers.
So do not hesitate to ask any questions, But remember the clothing and bags we sell are not meant to sit around and look pretty. They are made to wear and wear hard. You want that bag that looks aged and well worn. That is exactly what our bags are meant to do. Who wants a leather jacket that looks new... You want it to show the miles, to have already molded to your body shape and with the scratches and scuffs to show for it.
So we may not be for those dainty gentlemen that dont like to wrinkle their trousers..... Imagination, dreams and the desire to get out and see this world. That is what we are about. Live life.....
