100% Leather

A premium leather rucksack that doubles as a tote. This versatile, multifunctional bag is made from beautifully soft leather with a chambray lining - simply pull the strap up to convert it to a tote. The main compartment is big enough to fit a laptop and has a zip fastening plus a leather flap with slip closure. It has buckle straps so you can adjust the fit to suit you and we've given it plenty of handy pockets inside so you can carry everything you need with ease. Seasalt embossed anchor branding adds the finishing touch. This handsome bag is one to treasure for years to come. A really special gift, or a treat for yourself.

Gorgeous bag

I bought this bag when it was reduced. It is beautifully designed and the quality of the workmanship and the quality of the leather is brilliant for the price. I am choosing to use the bag mainly as a ‘briefcase’ and it has ample space for my daily basics and more. I chose the dark blue as the colour is more subtle and the band of brown leather matches my boots. I do understand the previous remarks about the shoulder straps being too narrow and I agree with another reviewer that if the strap had been just s little bit longer it could be used as a cross body bag. However I am more than happy with my purchase!

Problem straps

I love the softness and size of this bag but the problem is the straps. They slip very easily and so things inside get folded and creased. I bought this so that I could easily carry A4 files and I can if I don’t mind the contents creased. The leather crosses which are meant to stop the slipping are not big enough of strong enough. For the money I expected better.

I am so disappointed with this bag. The straps are forever slipping and don’t seem very strong. The description describes it as a tote/rucksack and big enough to fit a laptop, but I feel the straps would soon break if used to carry a laptop for any length of time. I am thinking of returning it. £130 is very expensive for a bag that doesn’t feel very strong.

Lovely to look at but frustrating

I searched for months for the “perfect” backpack - practical but stylish- and was delighted to find this one. It can carry all daily essentials, including iPad and small water bottle. The leather is beautifully soft and the bag is well made. BUT the straps are a problem. When using as a backpack, the straps slip and the bag is left lopsided, so is difficult to take off and slip back on quickly without making adjustments. One shoulder wear is just not possible, and phones are at risk of slipping out of the back pocket.

Lovely but annoying

This could be a fantastic bag but a few things really let it down: the leather stops are not big enough so the straps slide through and you constantly have to adjust them. The straps are a bit thin and I'm not sure how long they will last. Lastly the description says "plenty of handy pockets inside" - there is one and it just about fits a mobile phone. Apart from that its great, but disappointing design flaws for the price.

Quality great with a few buts....

This is a lovely looking bag, and the quality of the leather and the finish is evident. However, there are a few flaws that really make it an occasional bag rather than the daily one for which I'd wanted to use it,

I'm largely in agreement with other posters who have identified the straps as the issue. The bag is a great size and as soon as I saw it, I realised I'd be able to carry an A4 pad in it and use it for work. The problem is the straps are too thin to comfortably use it over the shoulder. It slips off if the bag has only a few light contents, and digs in if its more fully laden. Also, with anything more than the lightest load, the little cross over pieces, that should prevent the straps from slipping too far through the D-rings when in shoulder bag form, are too slight to actually stop this happening, so the bag then squashes down and folds back on itself.

Finally, it would be great if the bag converted not only to a shoulder bag but to a cross body bag as well.

As I said, I love the look so much and wanted something I could use for work, but I think it really is something that it will use rarely - which for the price, is disappointing.

I bought it from a shop while on holiday so I am not close to another store to return it.

Nice bag but not for me this time

I really like how this rucksack sits flat against your body. It looks neat. I wanted a bag/rucksack & was disappointed that it did not convert to a cross-body bag. It works as a shoulder bag but the straps aren’t long enough for the cross-body option. I decided it wasn’t quite right for me. It is a lovely bag & I liked the Olive colour.

Lovely bag!

This is the perfect autumn bag, fantastic colour and buttery soft leather. Perfect in every way!

I really loved the look of this bag and it's the perfect size for carrying my laptop around but I am really struggling with the straps. When I put the bag over my shoulder the leather stops on the strap slip straight though and the bag tips sideways. I have experimented with adding bag accessories to stop this happening but really - I shouldn't have to. So, I'm afraid I am returning it. Very disappointed.

Does not work as a rucksack

I bought this to use as a rucksack mainly, however, as pointed out by other reviewers already, the mechanism does not work. In particular, if you have it on one shoulder, which is my preferred way of carrying a bag. Otherwise, it is a very nice bag and I was really sad to return it, but I hope for an improved product in the future.
