Detailed Description

Meet the Zip Top, a real leather backpack that can be used two ways. Comfortable shoulder straps allow for hands-free carrying, whilst two bridle leather handles turn it into a stylish carry bag. The addition of a paddled laptop sleeve makes it the perfect men or women's leather backpack for the office, evening and day trips with the family.

Maker's Notes

The Zip Top Backpack was designed after customers requested a slightly smaller version of our Rolltop Backpack. The zip top design allows for quicker access to the main pocket and reduces the overall weight of the bag for everyday use. Our vegetable-tanned goat leather is much lighter than traditional leathers, so you get all the benefits without worrying about the bag being too heavy before you fill it. 

Our metalware is made from hard-wearing brass that, like the leather, will develop a unique patina over time. Our UK made leather backpacks are produced in small batches of 10, so great quality and attention to detail are guaranteed.
