With a sleek, streamlined design that allows for volume adjustments, this backpack smartly accommodates the daily maneuvers of commuters, students and travelers from all walks of life. Not too big and not too small, unassuming but staunchly reliable, this bag is ready to go wherever the road may take you. In addition to the efficient adaptability of the design, this backpack is crafted for reliability and longevity. Made from water-resistant treated European canvas, a rugged material that only improves with age, it features water-resistant zippers and sturdy Italian leather trim. The generous body compartment features interior pockets for organizational ease, while the tidy roll-top closure allows for both compactibility and enhanced weather protection. Two secret zippered pockets, one on the back of the bag and one on the bottom, make for secure and convenient stowage of important documents, locks and other necessities.
After placing your belongings in the backpack, roll the top down and secure with the canvas strap. A backpack should always be worn on both shoulders (no matter how the cool kids are doing it.) Adjust the straps of the bag so that the pack rests high and snug against your back, and fasten the chest strap for additional security. If necessary, you may spot clean this bag with mild soap and water. Applying leather conditioner to the pack's straps every so often will help them stay supple and strong.
John Boultbee Brooks settled in Birmingham, England in 1865. Just one year later, this enterprising gentleman had established a flourishing business producing horse harnesses and other leather goods on Great Charles Street under the name JB Brooks & Co. When his own horse met an untimely end, a borrowed bicycle became John Boultbee Brooks chosen mode of transportation. Less than delighted with its uncomfortable wooden seat, Brooks went on to create his own version of the bicycle saddle in the same thick, beautiful leather he used for his harnesses. Since filing its first leather saddle patent in 1882, the Brooks company name has become synonymous with quality in the field of handcrafted leather and canvas goods and accessories for the modern cyclist. At Brooks, traditional leather working techniques and manufacturing skills are passed down from generation to generation. These bags have been stitched together from water-resistant treated European canvas and genuine Brooks leather trim by skilled artisans in the hills of Tuscany, Italy.
