Louis Vuitton introduced the steamer bag in 1901 a little piece of luggage meant to be carried inside larger trunks. We reinvented it in 2015 as a comfortable, versatile, vintage inspired backpack for the next century and beyond.
Built to weather the elements and improve with age, this piece harks back to an era when seeing the world demanded a lot more than a credit card. Largely inspired by the durable character and clean lines of steamship luggage, this unlined heirloom features two padded straps linked to a single O-ring for weight distribution and brawny 18-oz. waxed canvas.
Our signature 100% full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather contrasts at the base and top reminiscent of the original material used for the historic leather mail bag.
A simple interior pocket is the sole embellishment, leaving this strikingly understated bag rugged and refined enough to handle extreme camping and executive commuting with equal ease.
