    The American Bison Leather Flight Bag is simply amazing. You can tell that the Buffalo Billfold Company has hand picked each piece of buffalo leather that goes into this. The stitching is precise, and they made a great choice in deciding to use solid brass hardware. I have no doubt that this durable buffalo leather in this piece of functional art will make this bag last forever. I’m excited that my American Bison Leather Flight Bag is going to become an heirloom, and that more will benefit from this fine handcrafted piece of functional art. Thanks to the Buffalo Billfold Company for your contribution of leather and art to the world and for keeping your leather goods made in America!
