why this product

Whether you're exploring the city or further afield, this hiking pack will help you shoulder your load with its 100% cotton canvas body, sized slightly larger than a normal backpack. You can comfortably fit two days' worth of clothing for a trek - or a few finds from the weeken market. 

The cotton webbing and leather straps are padded with wool felt and secured with copper rivets for extra comfort when you're carrying heavier loads. Whether empty or stuffed to the brim, the leather bottom maintains the shape of the bag, preventing it from tipping over. The main compartment opens and closes with a hemp drawstring and stopper made of buffalo horn, and includes a small zippered inner compartment for storing important documents. The top flap features saddle leather straps and brass buckle closures. One leather patch on the front and two on the sides of the bag allow you to secure extra equipment with bungees and carabiners, such as a thin mat or water bottle.

Rather than keep the Seil Marschall logo on the outside, we chose to put it inside the pack for a cleaner aesthetic while still honoring the company’s heritage. This design feature is exclusive to Kaufmann Mercantile.
