Great quality!

L. (Carversville, US)
Magnificent but…

I love this bag. It is beautiful and it is spacious. It is also well made.

The only thing that surprised me about this bag is the interior nylon. I really wish the makers would’ve used a quality cloth or just left it raw. The nylon definitely cheapens the bag (in my opinion). And that surprises me because all other facets of this bag are perfect.

Hey Lane, thanks so much for your compliments and design input!

We choose a high quality, high denier nylon lining for our Campaign Waxed Canvas Backpack mainly for it's strength, durability and it's easily cleaned. We'll definitely consider your input, though, as we always focus on making our products the very highest quality and value possible!

An honest five stars. Replacing a North Face Recon

This backpack is sturdy, stylish and extremely functional. It even fits my 15” MacBook Air in a slip case in the laptop pocket. The list of little things that elevate this to five stars are: the extra leather under the snap fasteners allow me to get a finger to ensure a good connection, the padding in the straps, the extra pockets behind the two front external pockets where I keep my phones through airport security; the roller bag strap and the "just enough" padding on the bottom.

Nothing is perfect, so my list of improvements would be someplace to clip my keys, side pockets on both sides of the backpack, and an extra pen pocket or two (I keep a spare toothbrush in mine.) But it’s not enough to bump the rating down. Great work and looking forward to replacing my other bags with your products.


Amazing quality! Well worth the cost
