    The Leatherman should have what you’re looking for.

    It might cost a “tad” more , depending on what your looking for.

    Quality leather is not cheap.
    Keep an eye on the Classified section here, sometimes you can find a good deal there as well.

    Good Luck in your search.

    Almost two separate thoughts without smo's suggestion to watch the ads. As he points out, leather isn't cheap with enough quality leather to make a bag probably nearing $30. Add in some hardware and the meter keeps running up. Consider that a good bag maker can run up 10-20 hours, and a $75 to $100 bag is asking him to work for somewhere between $2 and $3 and hour.

    I'm not pointing that out to discourage you, but instead to encourage you to "cut the corner" on price by making your own. Figure on cutting your anticipated costs around 50% with your invested effort. Besides that, it's a whole lot of fun and there's immense pride in using your own rather than using your credit card. Lots of good guidance on the web and in books for doing it.

    Look at Crazy Crow and October country. They have some decent bags at decent prices.

    Hi Tom, I bought both of my possibles bags from "The Leatherman" Gary Fatherree, 2216 Ritner Hwy., Carlisle, PA 17015,
    phone 717-249-5977 8:00 to 5:00 est Monday through Friday - Eastern Standard Time. He makes the greatest bags and accessories,
    including leather rifle slings. The quality is the finest, and his products will last through your lifetime and will be passed down to your
    future generations.
