The Satchel contains all of the player's items.
Red Dead Redemption
The satchel is a vital item in Red Dead Redemption; it holds your provisions, consumables, and kit items, and allows you to hold 5 of each consumable. Some of the items it holds are the bandana, animal pelts, the basic campfire, and a few other items.
Red Dead Redemption 2
In Red Dead Redemption 2, the satchel returns, with many more upgrades. Simon Pearson can upgrade the satchel after the leather working tools have been purchased for him. During the epilogue, any satchels that weren't crafted with Pearson can be purchased from fences.
Despite every satchel requiring leather working tools to be purchased, each satchel has its own individual requirement to be met, as well as each satchel having its own benefits.
Each crafted satchel doubles its related inventory items. For example; unlocking the tonics satchel doubles the number of tonics that the player can carry. Although, the Legend of the East satchel increases capacity to 99 for most items.
Once a certain satchel has been unlocked, the perks that come with it become permanent, and thus stack across all satchels. For example; if the player unlocks the tonics satchel, but then switches back to Arthur's default satchel, you will still be able to carry more tonics in the default satchel than you would before unlocking the perk.
