The first thing to learn is where you can see all of the currently lost satchels. These are in kind of a weird spot, you need to open up the menu area by pressing UP on the D-Pad. You then need to scroll to the side and find the Communications window. Once there you will select Lost & Found. This menu shows all the currently lost satchels, as well as any satchels you’ve lost in the game.

Once you’ve arrived in the region, open up your map and look for briefcase like icons on it. These are the missing satchels, and you will need to travel exactly where it is shown. It is usually very close to where the icon is marked on your map!

The satchel is a small brown pouch, that will be somewhere on the ground. It can get a bit obscured by the grass, but if you run near it you should get a prompt that will allow you to collect it.
