Our X-Backpack is inspired by the packs carried by Himalayan sherpas, who attach their gear to the outside of their bags with large crosses.
It took us a year to come up with the dimensions, lines, closures, and functionality that together make our own X-Backpack: a design rarely seen in Western city life. The result is self-evident: a backpack that's city-friendly, durable, and attractive.
The X-Backpack is made of 2.4mm water-resistant, vegetable-tanned leather from Italy. This dense, beautiful leather will hold its shape forever. Sun, rain, and snow will deepen its color and soften the leather over time.
The solid brass hardware on the X Backpack is hand-tooled and manufactured in small quantities by a foundry in England.
The interior includes a divider (fits a 13" Macbook Pro), a large zippered pocket (10"x 12”), and a brass key hook.
The bag fits a 15" and a 17" laptop in its main compartment.
A zippered pocket on the back panel allows for secure and easy access to your wallet or phone (fits an iPhone 6+).
Dimensions: 16” x 12" x 4" Weighs approximately 2 lbs
We can make the X-Backpack in white, tan, walnut, and black. Please note : lead time on the white X-Backpack will be 3-3.5 weeks. Because of the number of white bag orders that came in the first weekend, we ran out of white bag leather. We will have more coming in from Italy in 2 weeks.
Our goods are designed, hand-cut, and hand-crafted at our studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. We make the X-Backpack to order; please allow a lead-time of 10-14 days.
