Harlington Backpack in Slate


The Harlington Cross Compression Strap Backpack is a bag crafted for the unforgiving needs of modern daily carry.

Designed to endure the elements, we treat our signature heavyweight cotton canvas and genuine cowhide leather with a weather resistant wax coating. Bringing in a soft padded back panel and shoulder straps for comfortable use of a rugged hard wearing piece. To the front of the bag are a pair of quick access zip pockets. Inside the hard wearing outer, a roll top design conceals an interior laptop sleeve and storage pouches.

In an effort to embrace design elements from the essentials of early explorers, and to seek solutions for contemporary travel, the Harlington seeks a refined but rugged personality founded on the timeless qualities of using particular materials in its construction.

The roll top design safely stows away essentials inside the weather resistant outer, while enjoying the benefits of an easy to use bag for daily carry. The large main entry to the pack buttons closed, rolls down, and is secured with the cross compression straps. Traditionally inspired, but also functional in contemporary use, the interior of the bag holds a 15” laptop sleeve, with various zip pockets and pouches inside and out for a more flexible travel companion.

The Harlington has been constructed using our signature densely woven cotton canvas and genuine cowhide leather detailing, which have both been given a wax treatment. A process designed to enhance, strengthen and stylise the pack, but crucially bring the bag a resistance to moisture. First appropriated by Scottish Mariners in the 1500s, waxed canvas has been a historically fundamental fabric for life in the outdoors, so it became a natural fit for our bags.

We look for materials that are rugged and durable, but it’s also crucial that they age well. Over time, the waxed cotton will soften and conform to the way in which you use it and a patina will develop. The combination of exposure to the hot sun, driving rain, and the movements of your body, will lighten the color in the creases of the waxed fabric to create your own unique wear patterns. It truly is a thing of beauty.

The cowhide leather detailing is again treated with a wax coating, which enhances the fibres of the leather for a soft touch and an increased durability and moisture resistance. Like the waxed canvas, with use a natural patina will form onto the leather, unique to your piece and the journey in which you travel.
