Heritage Waxed Canvas Steamer Backpack No. 2

$389.00

Description

In 1854, Louis Vuitton opened his luggage business, and introduced the steamer bag in 1901 as a little piece of luggage meant to be carried inside larger trunks. Later, the US-American Railroad used it as a mailbag from the 1920s-1930s. Wells Fargo Express agents also used it to transport cash and other financial instruments.

In 2015, we reinvented it in as a comfortable, versatile, vintage inspired backpack for the next century and beyond. In 2020, we re-imagined it once more to carry forward is striking head-turning looks while morphing it into a highly-functional rucksack / backpack statement piece for today's adventurer. Lightweight (less than 4 lbs) with an easy-opening clasp is hidden underneath the authentically styled top flap.

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.

Mission-Built & Guaranteed For Life

Every Mission Mercantile product is built and guaranteed for life. That’s our Handshake Promise.

Full-grain leather - the type we use for every Mission Mercantile leather good - is the thickest, strongest and most weather-resistant leather that you can use for leather goods, even thicker than boot leather. We always use the largest, strongest pieces of the leather hide as possible, and never stitch together smaller pieces as others may do. We sew a maximum of only 7 stitches per inch so our seams are as strong and refined as possible, using only the very best (and expensive) German industrial marine-grade polyester thread which has a higher UV resistance than nylon thread (so it doesn't deteriorate in the sun). The combination of full-grain leathers, solid leather pieces and our stitching/glue/rivet combination at every weight-bearing location results in the absolute strongest leather goods possible.

    WHAT IS ‘TRADITIONAL RETAIL’ PRICE?

    When we feature a ‘traditional retail’ price on our product pages, it represents the estimated price that other retailers charge for a similar-quality product that typically aren't made in their own shop.

    Every Mission Mercantile product is handcrafted in our own shop, and our ‘traditional retail’ price is not reflective of our own pricing, but rather the price you should expect to pay for brands of similar quality to Mission Mercantile.

    We research prices across the industry to ensure these 'traditional retail' prices represent realistic competitor pricing, but we encourage our customers to conduct their own individual research.
