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.

Love it

This is a great bag. As a new mom who needs both hands free at all time, this helps me be practical and yet still look stylish. My backpains are gone since I switched from traditional one side handbags to these rucksacks. I already had the black one but I wanted a pop of colour. The nice quality of the leather shows even more in this colour than in black. I get so many compliments!
ps: I would have loved if it were a tad bit bigger but I guess it would also look less stylish! In my particular case, I would have sacrificed a tiny bit of style for the slightly more practical side.

Great bag

Bought this as wanted a rucksack that was more secure and liked the fact that it could convert to a shoulder bag too . Lots of room to carry things , will be great on an upcoming city break abroad.

Wonderful bag, very soft leather and very comfortable to wear either as rucksack or tote, and swapping between the two is hassle-free.. I bought it in colour Night, which is lovely. The size is just right for a couple of books and notebooks and/or iPad; it's large enough without being too bulky. However, I'd agree with other reviewers that 'plenty of handy pockets' is misleading.

Grebe convertible rucksack

A beautiful bag, lovely colour. I would have liked it even more if I could have worn it across my body. However that is a small niggle!

Fantastic bag!

This is one gorgeous bag! It's made of beautiful soft leather, is a lovely colour (I chose Atlantic) and is a great size,. The rucksack straps are still comfortable even when the bag is full. I would highly recommend it.

I love this bag!

This is a lovely, quality, versatile bag. The size is perfect, and it is made from beautiful, soft, leather. I have the Madder colour, and have received so many compliments on it.

Great bag!!!!

This is a gorgeous bag made from butter soft leather. The Atlantic colour is slightly darker than shown in the picture but is beautiful all the same. The straps are quite thick enough and they adjust smoothly from shoulder bag to rucksack. The rucksack option is also easy to put on. I love this bag and am really pleased with my purchase!

Not great...

I bought this bag last winter, and although at first I loved it, it soon got annoying. The way it converts from shoulder/cross body bag to backpack is a great idea, but it hasn’t been designed in a good way. When converted to a backpack, the strap slips through the top when I put it on my back, making one strap really long and the other short, so I have to do a wiggle one ever i’ve prised my second arm through to get them back to the same length. Also, the fabric had frayed at the seams where the lining is sewn together with the leather, which means it has tufts edges now. Pretty disappointed because it was an expensive bag.

Plenty of handy pockets? Where? Very impractical bag.

Bought this to replace a much loved but very battered Radley bag.
Huge mistake.
Nice leather but plenty of handy pockets?
I found two - one tiny one on the outside of the bag and one inside.
Neither had a zip or any method of fastening.
I like a inside zip section for wallet - there isn’t one. My old bag had two zippy pockets, one for my train pass and phone one for my wallet = easy to find.
The little strap thingy for your keys ?
No, not one of those either.

So everything ends up in one big pile inside the bag - nightmare to find anything, had a mini heart attack a couple of times thinking I’d lost my wallet..
Might be okay if you just want to stick a laptop in it and a hanky, but if you are planning to use it as a handbag - forget it.
Oh, and watch your face/eyes with that strap as you undo it too.
