About the product
In our search for the original style of backpack, we inevitably ended up at the beginnings of professional mountaineering. Especially the spectacular first ascents at the beginning of the 20th century have captivated us. These expeditions would have been unimaginable without reliable equipment. Our backpack is our tribute to the heroes of mountaineering and an authentic replica of these masterpieces of bag-making art. The Backpack is by far our most elaborate bag. But it is exactly the many small details that give this bag seriousness. As a respect to the eternal heroes and inspiration for new ones.
The backpack has two slightly padded and length-adjustable carrying straps. The back of the Back Pack is high quality quilted and padded for comfort. On the inside there is a large compartment that can safely store a 13" inch laptop or tablet computer. In the inside front there is also a zip compartment for valuables. On the outside there are 2 attached and lockable pockets on the sides.
The rucksack has a high-quality finish. All friction points are trimmed with leather. All load points are additionally reinforced. The bottom of the bag is completely made of durable buffalo leather.
We are Daniel and Christoph and live our dream. We founded DRAKENSBERG because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it.
To understand the path as the true goal and to grow on it. A good journey means learning. About life and about yourself. We know that a good journey can change a whole life. Our travel bags are silent reminders of the travel spirit of the 19th and 20th century, when traveling was still an adventure and travelers were adventurers.
Maybe you have already noticed, our bags are different. Each product is an elaborately manufactured unique piece with its own little story. The bags are almost completely handmade. We only use high quality leather and natural materials. Paying attention to sustainability and environment.
Leather is a natural material and can have small irregularities. Each leather product is also patinated by hand. This elaborate process makes our products trademarked. No bag can be exactly same as another. Thus, small colour deviations are unfortunately unavoidable and are not a sign of poor quality, but uniqueness.
