    Ellington Leather Backpack

    I would really like to let Lori and the others involved with my decision to buy the Ellington Backpack. It is the soft but sturdy leather I was looking for and wanted. I did spend some time searching others and am very happy I decided on this one. I am also very pleased with the service offered when I asked for extensions to the back straps so I could mount the backpack to the back rest of my Mobility Scooter. The team was so helpful in that endeavor. I am planning on taking pictures and sending to them as soon as I get the extensions so they and others can see another good use for the Backpack. Thank you Lori, Gary

    Beautiful Backpack

    This backpack is beautifully designed and constructed. The smallest details are well-thought out. I'm very impressed with the quality of this product. Puts to shame higher-priced backpacks from other companies. Perfect for travel, or for a student or professional lugging around a laptop and tons of materials. My only concern is the width of the straps - for sure, they are to scale for the rest of the backpack, but for my frame, a bit too wide and stiff - when I contacted Mission Mercantile for advice, I was reassured they will soften with use.

    Hey Kelsey! You can hasten the softening of the leather by leaving it out in the warm sun for a bit - or a blowdryer on high - and then "knead" the leather a bit. After doing this, treat with a high quality leather conditioner. We like Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner. If you don't do any of the above, though, your full-grain leather straps will definitely soften with regular use.

    Ellington Leather Backpack

    I love this backpack! I use it daily. This is one of those items that will definitely last a lifetime. Very well made. My only problem I had, was the smell. It was a heavy chemical smell. I’ve had the same problem with leather products from other companies. It must have something to do with the tanning process. I bought a leather cleaner/conditioner & it was fine after that.

    I just purchased the Ellington backpack after an exhaustive search for the perfect backpack. The quality of this bag is exceptional. I can tell that it will last forever. I love the padded straps and the separate laptop sleeve. The whole thing is lined beautifully so that no electronic device will ever get scratched. It hangs nicely even with my laptop inside. The leather itself is supple and strong all at the same time, not to mention that it’s just beautiful! So many of the others that I looked at were bulky and not feminine. This one is big enough for everything and still looks feminine. I’m in love with this backpack and highly recommend it!

    Have the original over 25 years!

    Bought the original while vacationing in St. John, ****** Islands. Best purchase ever! Had all daily essentials in a cheap plastic shoulder tote that was killing my shoulder. Put beach towel, camera (no cell phones then), book, sunglasses, and everything else in this bag with space to spare! Just had it professionally reconditioned, and it looks fabulous! Highly recommend this bag!!
