In love

I am in love with this bag. I wanted it for more than 6 months and finally decided to buy it. It is super beatiful and I like to bring it everywhere (even if I only need my wallet and phone...).

Amazing backpack

The backpack looks amazing and has enough space for a laptop, school stuff and extra books! Just what I needed.

Smart but practical summer rucksack

Stylish design with a kind of retro look....looking forward to using after self isolation

Greg Dewar
Helsinki Backpack, Coffee

I needed a roomy backpack to lug stuff around in, but the standard sports bags are flimsy and made of nylon or polyester. This one is hefty, made from thick waxed cotton canvas, with a thick leather flap over the main zipped access. Inside are two small pockets to take phone, cables, charger pack and so on, and a large padded laptop sleeve. The centre section is huge! Outside there is a pocket with a flap and two side cup-holders. All the trims are (I think) in matching leather, and the straps are wide and comfortable. I wish the buckles that secure the main flap weren't so ornamental - I'd feel more secure if they actually worked, instead of simply hiding the magnetic closures. However, the bag looks great, and feels like it will last as long as my Barbour coat!

Great everyday backpack

I'm very happy with this bag. I'm using daily to transport my 15" laptop. It looks great and it is very practical. It will be even better when the leader part will get used, it will give a more adventurous look.
Maybe it is a choice of design, but I would preferre a semi-rigid material in the back so that the bag stay straight even when empty.
