Red Dead Redemption 2 satchel upgrades and how to get the best satchel

The various satchel upgrades on offer in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Satchel upgrades should be towards the top of your list Red Dead Redemption 2, allowing you to carry around more items as you explore the Wild West.

However, getting them isn't easy - many have prior requirements before they unlock, and all of them require a lot of hunting before you can get your hands on them.

Where to upgrade your satchel in Red Dead Redemption 2

Satchel upgrades in Red Dead Redemption 2 come from one source - Pearson, found at your camp.

Not only is he the camp cook, but he can also give you various camp upgrades - though unlike the satchel, these are cosmetic upgrades. Save your most valuable skins for satchel upgrades, which give you in-game benefits.

It should also be noted that although Pearson will be able to upgrade your satchel as soon as you start Chapter 2, many upgrades have requirements, including Leather Working Tools to donating and using the camp in various ways.
