What People Think
Rolls Royce among backpacks
The best backpack I have ever had! Strong, wear-resistant material, leather straps, a special design that catches the eye. I am often asked where I bought it, and then they write down contacts. The backpack is almost perfect, but there are also disadvantages ... this is the weight, there is nowhere to go from this. Quality fabric and thick leather, weigh a lot. Good luck Saddleback! It's a pity that I can no longer make an order to my country ((I hope this is temporary..
Tough and beautiful
The Canvas Quality
We use the best materials we could find to make this Mountainback® canvas backpack: Super-tough 24 oz. waxed canvas from Scotland. We didn't go cheap on any of the materials and have to lose out on quality. So we went to the source of the best canvas in the world, where it was first used for sailors hundreds of years ago, Scotland. The heavy-duty 24 oz. weight means it will stay strong and only get better with age.
Full Grain Tumbled Leather in our Canvas Backpacks
Full grain tumbled leather. The tumbling process gives the leather a beautiful look and makes it softer and more pliable. Full grain tumbled leather is extremely strong and will age beautifully.
Only The Best Marine-Grade Polyester Thread
Marine-grade polyester thread has tremendous strength. So when designing canvas backpacks that will see a lot of rough use, we only wanted the best. The polyester thread we use is also UV resistant, so it won't degrade in the sun. When sailors trust their life to a piece of thread, you know it's good enough for us.
Marine-Grade Stainless 316 Steel
We thought long and hard about creating the most functional canvas backpack. Still, just as much as functionality, we took on everything that would make it the most durable and long-lasting. So we used custom marine grade 316 stainless steel. This is the same steel used in shipbuilding, so you know it can take a beating.
Five Pockets in this Weatherproof Canvas Backpack
Two side pockets of the canvas backpack with secure and quick access pad eye closure. Two front canvas pockets are sewn on the bag itself, so there are pockets behind them as well. All four exterior pockets have hidden slot pockets behind them for extra storage. The Interior tumbled leather backpack panel pocket along the back can hold a tablet or small laptop.
Main Compartment is Lined With Full Grain Tumbled Leather
The interior main compartment is completely lined with full grain tumbled leather. I designed the liner so it can be pulled inside out for easy cleaning. If you've never had a backpack with this feature, you will fall in love with it. It's so easy to keep clean even when you spill your salsa out inside your backpack.
Our Canvas Backpacks Have a Hidden Compartment
Here is your James Bond moment. I cut a discreet slit in the liner so you can hide some things between it and the bag itself. This is a great place to stash some cash or your passport.
Adjustable Shoulder Straps
The shoulder straps on the backpack are made of full grain leather and are adjustable for a comfortable fit on a wide range of body types. There is no one size fits all with these straps. We want you to wear this backpack with comfort and confidence. So if you are wearing this canvas backpack to work, school, or travel, we want it to meet the needs of your desired comfort level.
