Product Overview

The Canvas Quality
Built with uncommonly thick 24 oz waxed canvas from Scotland that is extremely rugged and water resistant. Right at home in the office as a laptop bag, even better on a mountain trail. Top flap secures quickly and easily with two pad eye closures. Removable canvas shoulder strap has a thick leather shoulder pad; Strap can also be used to carry bag as a backpack. Can be carried by shoulder strap or top Old Bull grab handle that lays flat when not in use. Dark Coffee Brown Old Bull leather back pad covers the back and bottom of bag for comfort and protection from being jabbed by the inside contents; Leather is stamped with month and year of construction. Exterior leather pad doubles as an exterior pocket and allows for items, such as a tripod, to be carried under the bag. Internal laptop divider keeps contents separated and can be unclipped and dropped to the bottom of the bag to create a single interior compartment. Two useful exterior pockets and four interior pockets - 2 side pockets, one large back panel pocket and a front security pocket with a flap, keeps you organized. Is as functional as a toothpick after a plate of ribs. Will outlast you and maybe your kids, or even your kids' kids. Easily fits a 15" Macbook, iPad, or Leather Portfolio with room to spare.

To be noted:
Waxed canvas is the original water resistant fabric, and comes with the attendant charms and quirks of being a centuries-old technology. In the young days of your bag, you may experience slight wax transfer from the canvas to any particularly absorbent contents in the bag (such as paper, etc). It is recommended that these contents are kept in a case while in the bag. Something to keep in mind as the bag breaks in.

    Just the best

    I own other Saddleback pure leather products, but this canvas bag is just wonderful. The canvas itself is thick, but becomes more supple over time. The leather elements are terrific, and it is the only canvas bag I have ever seen with a thick leather back and bottom. I own a WWII vintage military canvas bag, and while it is great for nostalgia, this Mountainback bag is far superior. It is literally perfect. I cannot see a flaw in it. The military style quick release straps hold the bag tightly closed when in use, and then come right off with a pull of the handles when you need to open it. It is such an amazing bag. I cannot recommend it enough!

    Top quality and rugged in every way

    Disclosure: I am a long-time Saddleback fan and customer. I bought a DCB leather messenger in 2011, then lived and traveled all across Asia for 5 years with it, and it was a champ. I cannot even begin to tell you the places it has been! I am also a huge waxed cotton canvas fan, for the nostalgia and the simplicity, and because it is more supple than leather. This simple canvas messenger is a true work of art. The canvas itself is thick and rugged, better than any other canvas bag I have ever used. The metal parts are rugged and great, and the thick, tough leather back and bottom are brilliant. You cannot go wrong with this bag: it truly is the best in the world, and trust me, I am a world traveler and I know what I am talking about!

    Eye Catching Quality

    This bag is everything I wanted and more. Durable, appealing, and practical. Everywhere I go, I get compliments, in fact, someone in my office just ordered one after seeing mine. Amazing product. I’ve already had to use the waterproof feature and it’s not too heavy. Just buy it.

    Ive had this for a

    Ive had this for a month now, using it to go to work. I can carry my 16 inch macbook pro, lunch, extra clothing, whatever. Its not too heavy and it looks great while not being too flashy. The fabric has an incredible feel and the leather is really nice. i have the saddleback duffel and backpack and the large wallet. This is my favorite. It has quality but is not fancy. I find myself always trying not to look at it and touch it but only when im around other people.
