Surfer, adventurer and designer Ashleigh Smith, founder of The Atlantic Equipment Project, handmakes her range of backpacks and satchels from her studio in Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Equally as suitable for the morning commute as it is for an outdoor adventure, you’ll never need another bag!
Available in black or a rich walnut brown, these bags are handmade from start to finish, with each section hand cut and sewn right down to the vintage repurposed leather label. Made in 14oz heavy duty proofed canvas, this backpack is fully lined, hardwearing and comfortable out and about. Adjustable 100% cotton straps are easy on your shoulders for those long country hikes. The rolltop opening allows for adjustable volume and is secured with a cord and cast brass D-ring closure. The easy to access external pocket is lined with corduroy for any kit you need on hand during your adventure. For those working on the go, this bag can hold a 15” laptop.
The fully unrolled dimensions of the bag are 75cm high x 32cm wide x 10cm deep. A waxed cotton rolltop bag version is also available, as well as a canvas satchel in a choice of three colourways.
