" No. 25 The Collector" measures 13" L x 6" W x 8.5" D. It made from Khaki Twill and trimmed with beautiful chestnut colored leather. There is one interior zippered pocket large enough to hold my Samsung Galaxy S 4 Smart phone with room to spare. It has a rolled padded leather handles that are easy on the hands when gripped. The closure is with brass zipper. There are two leather handles with a 4.5 inch drop. All hardware is solid brass.There are no exterior pockets.

Condition: This bag is in very good condition for a bag over 30 years old. The leather looks new except for the typical scuffing found in most bags over 30. The stitching is in tact. The zippers function properly. The Khaki twill fabric is very clean but there is one area of khaki with an obvious spot which I have shown in the photos I have posted in photo # 5 -the collage. For an accurate description of the condition please see all photos and ask for more photos if you are interested.

About Ghurka:

The name Ghurka was taken from the Ghurka soldiers of the Himalayas who since the days of the British Raj, according to the Ghurka website, have been known throughout the world for their bravery, loyalty, and cheerful indifference to all difficulty. The Company founder, Marley Hodgson, came up with the idea of starting a company creating handmade leather bags and naming it Ghurka after attending an antiquities auction in the 1970's and bidding on gear made for Ghurka regimental officers stationed in India in the early 1900's. According to the Ghurka website, Marley Hodgson was Inspired by the rugged elegance and workmanship of the 75-year-old leather and created the Ghurka leather company to make similar bags. http://www.ghurka.com/our-heritage/about-ghurka
