A backpack AND a tote, all in one! This convertible bag easily transforms from a backpack into a single-shoulder tote by just sliding the leather straps; no unclipping clips and no complicated instructions!
Generously sized, this bag will hold everything! See the measurements at the bottom of the listing.
Charcoal Grey/Blue 18oz waxed canvas; caramel leather.
TEXTILE: Waxed canvas is a durable, beautiful, historical, and water resistant fabric that develops a well-worn and comfortable patina over time. As the fabric ages, the patina deepens and transforms into a leathery/suede appearance, enhancing its appearance and creating its own personality.
One large exterior zippered pocket on the front allow for an easy place to slip items like your phone, transit pass, airplane tickets and passport. It's always lined with a fun or colourful fabric. Each bag is different, and will be a surprise when you receive it! There are two interior pockets placed near the top of the bag for easy access to items like chapstick, keys, or a credit card.
A full-grain cowhide leather adjustable leather strap will allow you to wear the tote as a backpack, with a comfortable 1" width. When wearing the bag on your shoulder, the strap width decreases to 5/8" (just like my totes).
Avoid the black abyss with this bag: I have lined it with a 10oz ivory cotton canvas so that you can actually see what’s at the bottom. No more lost belongings!
All seams are double-stitched for extra strength and durability. There are two layers of waxed canvas reinforcing the bottom of the bag, where it will get the most wear. The bag is constructed out of 10.10oz waxed canvas from a US supplier- one that has been manufacturing waxed canvas since the 1800s.
Width: (top) 17" ; (bottom) 13"
Zipper Pocket: 12”
Height (including strap length, worn as tote): 29.5"
Waxed canvas is cotton that has been infused with a wax to make it water resistant and durable. Waxed canvas and leather should not be washed in the washing machine, put in the dryer, or dry cleaned. If your bag gets dirty, spot wash it with a damp sponge and air dry. Over time, you may want to rewax your bag, and it is recommended that you use Otter Wax brand Fabric Wax (and watch the instructional videos on their website), found at many retailers across the world. If you prefer a “leathery” waxed canvas look, a heavy application of fabric wax is recommended. I urge caution and practice before and during waxing the fabric yourself.
