"I just purchased the Ellington backpack after an exhaustive search for the perfect backpack. The whole thing is lined beautifully so that no electronic device will ever get scratched. The leather itself is supple and strong all at the same time, not to mention that it’s just beautiful! Wow!"

- Catherine Y.

This is far & away the best I've ever owned. The combination of quality, style & function are unmatched. Bottom line: This is an heirloom quality piece that is punching wayyyy above its price. I've had much more expensive bags that aren't half as good as this one. If you're on the fence, get it.

My order was marked as delivered and I didn’t receive my package. I reached out to costumer service several times and they did not communicate with me. I do not recommend buying items from this place.

Like it!

Beautiful product, great leather and a thoughtful design in almost all respects. I do think that 4-6 bass feet on the bottom of the back would be a useful (optional) addtion to reduce wear and tear and improve the usable lifetime -- probably to the third generation!

Where form, function, beauty and superb craftsmanship collide!

I bought the Ellington backpack for my wife’s birthday. It replaces a 5 year old department store bag that she absolutely loved, but had seen better days. I searched relentlessly to find her a suitable replacement. Mission accomplished with this bag!😉 It is a thing of beauty and she absolutely loves it. It really does combine so many practical features and has just a tinge of feminine flair for her. Her only concern is its initial stiffness making it slightly challenging to put over her shoulders. We expect the leather to soften up over time, facilitating this task. Thank you Mission Mercantile! So glad to have found you.

Hey David, thanks so much for your very complimentary & kind review! For sure (as with all high quality full grain leathers), our leathers will become more supple over time. With regular use, her Ellington Backpack will definitely soften. If she wants to speed up the process a bit, she may periodically place it in a window to soak up some of the sun's warmth. In no time she'll love the feel to her touch and how her bag is uniquely forming to her! Please let us know if you need any further insights and how we can take great care of you both!
