Exquisite Leather Backpacks Crafted by Master Hands

Our exquisite leather backpacks, crafted from high-quality leather, are the perfect companions for your next adventure – whether big or small. We drew inspiration from the honest and functional designs of the 19th century when travel was still a true adventure, and travelers were genuine explorers.

What is a Leather Backpack?

A leather backpack is not just a storage space for your personal items, but a symbiosis of durability, aesthetics, and comfort. The material used, often high-quality buffalo leather, stands for robustness and a long lifespan. Originally developed for the outdoor world and adventurers, the leather backpack has established itself as a multifunctional companion for various walks of life. Whether it's a stroll through the city, a hiking adventure, or a fashion statement, the leather backpack combines functionality with stylish elegance.


What Size Should a Leather Backpack Be?

The ideal size of a leather backpack depends on your specific needs and purpose. For everyday activities like going to the office, to college, or for day trips, a main compartment volume between 15 and 25 liters is often sufficient. This size provides ample space for laptops, books, and other everyday items. For longer journeys, specialized outdoor activities like hiking and camping, or larger shopping trips, a larger model with a capacity of 30 to 50 liters is recommended. These leather backpacks offer extended features like additional compartments and pockets, perfectly tailored to the needs of adventurers.


Can a Leather Backpack Be Taken as Carry-On Luggage on a Plane?

Yes, generally it is possible to take a leather backpack as carry-on luggage on a plane. However, it is important to comply with the size and weight regulations of the respective airline. These guidelines can be found on the airlines' websites and should be checked before embarking on your journey to avoid any additional costs or issues.

Furthermore, it is crucial to ensure that no prohibited items, products, or articles, such as liquids over 100 ml or sharp objects, are carried in the leather backpack. Thanks to the flexibility and robust construction of leather backpacks, they can easily be stowed in overhead compartments or under the airplane seat.

Why Are Leather Backpacks So Practical?

Hands-free: One of the most obvious advantages of leather backpacks over other types of bags is the freedom of hands. Whether you are shopping at the supermarket, cycling, or simply walking, leather backpacks allow you to have both hands free.

Weight distribution: Compared to shoulder bags, a backpack distributes the weight evenly across both shoulders. This minimizes strain on the back and allows for more comfortable carrying, even with heavy loads. The shoulder straps should be adjusted evenly and tailored to the size of the carrier for maximum comfort.

Quick access: Many leather backpacks feature well-designed compartments and pockets, so you can quickly access important items like keys, laptop, smartphone, or wallet.

Mobility: Whether you're rushing through the city or taking a walk in the park, a leather backpack for men and women is the ideal companion. It allows for maximum freedom of movement and is therefore ideal for an active lifestyle.
