Inspired by A.Wainwright – the legendary Lakeland guidebook creator – this limited edition, classic 'A' shape backpack is hand-made in the UK and built to withstand a life on the fells.

Weatherproof and hardwearing. From old tracks north to Dundee, Halley Stevensons 12oz canvas forms the outer fabric, lined inside with Harris Tweed from the Isle of Lewis. Hand-finished, veg-tanned leather finds its way from Whitehouse Cox, in central England. All gathered and assembled, by hand, in Sheffield – a bag crafted from these Great British Isles.

Each batch consists of 100 bags, hand-numbered under the grab handle.
