Wear a Timeless & Trendy Artifact in Style
Discover Chamonix, a vintage canvas backpack made of waterproof waxed canvas that smells fresh air and reminds us of the old days, when brave adventurers set out to conquer Mont Blanc, their eyes riveted on the summit. Handcrafted with heavy-duty cotton canvas and full grain leather, it is completely weatherproof, which makes it the perfect commuter or biker backpack.
Combining a definite vintage style with a sober and minimalist design, the Chamonix canvas bag is as much an ideal travel accessory as an obvious fashion statement. Offering several colors, reminiscent of the natural colors of the Alps, this vintage backpack will easily match your different outfits and bring to your style a vintage and original touch.
Go Vintage with a Compact & Minimalist Men's and Women's Backpack
You asked us, we heard you. The Chamonix convertible backpack features real buckles (not magnetic buckles like most of our other models) and reinforced zippers. You can therefore count on the reliability of the latter to offer you maximum security, in public transport or in the heart of the alpine mountains.
The exterior is rather sober, going to the essential without unnecessary elements. You will find a large front pocket and two side pockets, all closing with buckles. You can therefore store your travel accessories without the risk of dropping them or having them stolen. If ever, a secret pocket has been added on the back of the bag, so you can store your most essential accessories. As you have seen, this bag is reliable and will not disappoint you during your different journeys.
Opt for a Functional & Well Made Rucksack with a Retro Vibe
To avoid lengthy and tedious bag opening and closure, we opted for a double opening: a sliding drawstring covered with a waxed canvas flap, fastened with buckles. This offers a mix of security with the buckles and ease of opening and closing with the drawstring.
The roomy interior of the bag was designed to provide the ideal volume for 3-4 days of adventure. The old school Chamonix backpack offers nearly 30L of storage space, organized with a large main compartment, a dedicated divider for your laptop, and a set of slash and zip pockets. You can easily organize the contents of your laptop bag according to your needs and desires, while ensuring quick access to an item if needed. It will be your perfect hiking backpack or college bag, depending on your needs.

I was skeptical to the quality of the bag because I couldn’t see it in person. But was surprised it’s great with proper buckles.
I’ve actually switched from using my fjallraven to this
Trully old fashioned piece that some of us love so much. Closures, material and all.
Adequate quality for the price. The best part is the harness system, looks the part yet is absolutely ergonomic - fit and adjustment, unlike some other 'transatlantic' classics;-)
Another usufull thing, post sale service included a short film instructing how to go over the problem of too stiff a fabric. Helpfull,
Appears extremely well made, it's got a ton of room and pockets. The leather is soft but high quality. It isn't easy to find something with working buckles and no magnets, I'm excited about using this everyday
Old School Backpack <br> CHAMONIX
It took a little while to get to me as I live in the United States. When I opened up the package I was very happy to see the Backpack. I have taken it out several times on day hikes with my dog In Arizona. The backpack has held up great! I only wish I had bought the Chamonix backpack sooner.
