This is a vintage-inspired, all-purpose leather and heavy-waxed canvas powerhouse. A direct aesthetic and structural descendant of a time when back-breaking blocks of ice were carried into homes and businesses by hand. Indeed, when the iceman cometh to replenish the icebox he did so with this essential instrument replete with a small handle under the base for conveniently swift, single-motion unloading.
Now, reintroduced, it's equally ready for lugging firewood to a pickup truck or stylishly supporting an indulgent day at the beach. Our hearty tribute to this utilitarian classic stands tall as an heirloom-quality bag.
We love MM ice bags. We have one and gave one as a gift. We recently ordered another as a gift for our oldest son. Everyone happy with this amazing, useful and sturdy handsome tote bag.
This has become my go-to bag for an overnight bag or just general toting stuff around. It has handled a lot of travel abuse and still looks great. Needless to say, I love this bag. One of the best gifts I have ever recieved.
While attending the annual DSC conference in Dallas I had the opportunity to see the Ice Block Bag at the MM booth. I purchased the bag and have not been disappointed. The construction is outstanding and very much old world construction. My hats off the the company and their product. In fact, I have lost it to my wife. She loves it. Thanks Again for your products.
I have always wanted a bag that is truly a forever bag. Something that will last, something that will age well and build character rather than another run of the mill department store bag that is off the rack, owned by many and has a big price tag due to the name on the bag rather than the quality! This is it, stunning, different and the craftsmanship has to be seen to be believed! This will last forever(and the warranty backs that up) with quality materials, construction and straps / hardware that is built to last. The other notable thing about this is the size. I love and need a big bag and in the last few years have tried, in vein, to find something that meets my needs. This was it! As soon as I walked in the store and spotted this I knew my search was over! Love this bag and will proudly carry it for many years to come
I have been eyeing one of these for quite some time. I work in sales and was always lugging stuff in and out of my truck. I wanted a tote but everything I looked at was to ladylike. I finally pulled the trigger this December and couldn't be happier. I load it every morning with freebees, or holiday gift boxes and head out. It is a big bag! I throw my tools and some materials in it when I head to a project and it's all in one spot! The hardware, canvas and leather are great quality. I actually have been thinking of getting a 2nd one. My fianc even liked it! Said it's a perfect beach bag, so I was glad she approved! Hope this helps with your questions!
Gorgeous craftsmanship, top-quality materials ... and so versatile! Since acquiring it at the beginning of the summer, my Ice Block Bag has been to horse shows, picnics, camping trips, lake outings, a music festival, the farmers market, and of course, more times than anything, the barn as I am an avid equestrian. I love that it can swing effortlessly back and forth between the roles of rugged and sophisticated: its toted bottles of ros and hefted flakes of alfalfa; Ive paired it with sundresses and with muck boots; its been a bed-and-breakfast overnight bag, and its been a barn chore workhorse. Can't say enough good things about this absolute heirloom of a bag. Thank you, Mission Mercantile!
