    “Pony Express” Leather Pouch

    Made in Chicago, Illinois

    • “I marveled at the simplicity and beauty of the piece. Thick leather and beefy sewing, with an indestructible snap.”

      That's Field Notes guru and seeker of all things Americana Aaron Draplin, on finding a snazzy antique leather pouch stamped "U.S. Postal Service" at the famous Brimfield Antiques Show in Massachusetts.

      Perfectly made to carry a trio of their equally snazzy memo books (sold separately here), Aaron and his fellow Chicagoans quickly got on the horn to leather gurus Tanner Goods and ordered up a small batch to call their own.

      Hand-tooled from premium domestic leather, the pouches will get darker, softer and more supple with time + use. In addition to transporting our memo books in vintage style, Firecrackers have been known to put their Pony Express to use carrying passports, love notes & a (curiously) thin flask of fine Tennessee whiskey.

      Simple. Classic. Will last forever.
