100% Leather

A beautifully soft leather backpack that doubles as a tote. Inside, it is lined with chambray fabric and the main compartment is big enough to fit a laptop, with a zip fastening and leather flap closure. It has buckle straps, so you can adjust the fit and we've given it plenty of handy pockets inside to carry everything you need.

Smartening up my image

I've frequently used a very well-worn and well-travelled backpack rather than a "proper" shoulder bag but decided it was time to stop being quite so scruffy, being well out of student age and well into pensioner age. Then suddenly along came Seasalt's convertible backpack. A great colour (beech), roomy enough for my class books, water bottle and other odds and ends, and made of great quality leather. Ticks all the boxes in fact. I love it.

Just perfect!

Rather frivolously, I now have both colours. I have one in green ( last seasons shade) and use it nearly all the time. I decided to treat myself to the one in black too, however am saving it as just can’t seem to give up using the green one. Being able to convert from a backpack to shoulder bag is ingenious and quality is fantastic.
Everyone should have one!

Beautiful! Well done, Seasalt

I absolutely love this bag!! My boyfriend ordered it for me for our anniversary because he knew I needed a new backpack and that Seasalt is my most favorite shop. (I’ve been shopping here since 2015 and order from the states since then). He got me the green color which is a lovely muted pebble sort of green. It’s beautifully constructed and I love the little pocket on the back that fits my phone perfectly and can easily grab it out of there when I need it. By boyfriend has come to liking Seasalt too. I think it would be awesome if some bags like these were made for the men’s section too, like a briefcase sort of a look or more masculine type backpack. He loves it too and wishes there were more men’s things!

Looked good but...............

When I first got this I was over the moon with it BUT the long strap doesn’t work well in practice, it’s too soft to be useful. It’s a large bag, great, but the weight when anything like say your iPad/tablet purse glasses etc stretches the strap, so if you want to use it as a shoulder bag it sort of bends in half because the leather cross stoppers that should stop the strap going through the square metal rings don’t. They’re not ‘man’ enough for the job, so this bag is really only useable as a back pack I’ve had it now for 2years! Bought it take on holiday in September of 2018, when I came home it looked like an old bag, very tired and sorry for itself. I have to say this was a very expensive mistake and has put me off buying anything similar. I’ve not enjoyed writing this review and I did put it off for, as you can see, a long time. I very rarely use this bag anymore. Although I can see the idea was a good one, it does need a few tweaks for it to work. Oh, and the lining was coming away when I got back from that holiday too.

Beautiful bag

Bought for a 50th birthday gift. The quality of the leather is very good and the bag looks very useful. The recipient is very pleased with it.

Incredibly soft leather

I was looking for a bag that would be comfortable for all day wearing, walking, carrying around London and the. Transform into a smart evening bag. This does meet the spec and the leather was a lot softer than I expected.
My only problem which is why we are four stars is yesterday the leather pull on the zip came off, I have repaired it once but a failed attempt, I have tried again. If it falls off again I will contact customer support as it shouldn’t do this at the price. A slight design flaw in a very good bag.

Not so fast!

Lots to love, colour, texture. But it just doesn’t work! The handle is too short and there’s no way to extend it. The bag falls open because it doesn’t naturally close, even though there is a mechanism for it.
I shall persevere, but it’s ALOT of money to spend not to be fully satisfied.

Looked at this bag online for a few weeks, loved the look of it but thought the price was a bit steep. Eventually took the plunge and ordered and... I love it! Great quality leather, lovely chambray lining, ease of use - from ruck sack to tote. I was a bit unsure (from other reviews read) as to whether I’d find It had enough compartments, but one for phone and a small outer ‘pocket’ is working well. Really pleased with my purchase:)
