One of the more unique and stylish leather backpack designs is currently on Kickstarter. The Leatherback leather backpack by Victory Leathercraft is a leather backpack that stands out. We have reviewed a lot of leather backpacks here at Best Leather so it is refreshing when we find an item that steps outside of the norm.
This backpack is made from full-grain English vegetable tanned leather and it looks fantastic. Pete, the creator, wanted to design a backpack that wasn’t only durable and practical, but also visually stunning. I think he did a great job.
Some of the main features of the bag are as follows:
The backpack can be worn like any other, with its wide, comfortable English bridle leather shoulder straps. It can also be carried by its top carry-handle. Lastly, the shoulder straps can be snapped together end-to-end, giving the option to wear it as a single-strap messenger bag.
The top flap is secured with a special catch that only releases when pinched & pulled upwards. Unlike magnetic catches or traditional snaps, anyone trying to open the bag by tugging at the flap will have no success.
Inside the bag there is a main compartment, a separate compartment big enough for a 15” laptop or tablet, plus a centrally placed smartphone pocket and two pen holders. There is also a leather strap with a trigger-snap on the end for easy retrieval of any keys you might wish to attach, meaning you won’t need to rummage around the bottom of the backpack to find them.
