Satchel and Page Leather

They don't make specific Moto gear (yet), but they make a few items likely to be coveted by the scrambler/hipster-doofus-crowd who view bikes only as fashion. Or by those building Walking-Dead inspired basket cases.

My Review:

Satchel and Page. Avoid them. I "pre-ordered" their Pilot's Bag. The leather looked nothing like their site's photo. Their pic had a nice smooth, deep finish, satin patina, variegated color. The bag they shipped me? Muddy singular-tone flat, brown finish, absolutely reeked of formaldehyde. I challenge their assertion of "vegetable tanned."

When I tried to return it, they at first refused, claiming their site indicated it's not returnable. Turns out their site doesn't say what they think it does and they agreed to accept a return. Then they gave me an incorrect return-shipping address, refused to give me the corrected one, instead insisted that the package be "intercepted", adding a week to the shipping time, delaying my refund.

IMO, They are a joke, bunch of crowd-funded slicksters who don't have a clue.

Their site does say that "pre-order" items are not returnable. Did it say that before, or have they since updated their website?

Yes, it says that now. They changed it since my go-round with them and I think it's pretty clear now. They've also added the green line to the items that are crowd funded.

They've also changed some of their merchandise picks to more accurately reflect what they sell. Their leather pics are still a bit misleading, but some now are more like the actual shipped product I got.

Their pics show goods with much deeper shines and coloring. If you see a pic in which the leather looks like flat-brown, that's approaching what you'll get. I think their photographer is applying too much oil to the products prior to the shoot.

Thanks for the heads up. The photos on their website sure make those products tempting... I'd rather be able to touch, feel, smell and physically connect with a $500 bag before I buy it, too.
