Meet the Pilot, a reliable and durable backpack that will handle your gear mile after mile without killing your stride. With this one, you’re going places.
Trusty, true and ready to roll with all the adventures you can dream up, the Pilot backpack is a loyal companion. This backpack won’t weigh you down and can keep up with you on the trail holding more than just the essentials. The simple style, neutral tones and just-right size make it easy for a girl or a guy to wear without question.
The Pilot boasts all the great organizational essentials from our removable and adjustable dividers, to a wallet organizer pocket, not to mention a large laptop compartment (up to 15”). It has all you need with options to expand or minimize depending on what you need to carry. The inside drawstring closure lets you cinch the bag in size and the exterior leather flap lets you get in and out of the bag with ease thanks to the two magnetic straps. The Pilot can stand up on its own easily.
Unlike most of our bags, this has a top cover for the padded dividers allowing you to make a flat surface to pack more things on top of it. Or, remove all the dividers and fit even more inside this versatile backpack. The Pilot has built in padding on both the sides and the bottom of the bag in case of an emergency landing. This is our bag with the most full grain leather throughout. Although that may mean more scuffs and character, it is very durable and will only get more handsome with age. Called by some as their “favorite bag they’ve ever owned,” the pilot is like a smooth flight with an early arrival.
Made with durable canvas and Full grain leather.
**This leather scuffs easily, but we like character and natural markings after our leather has been used. Would you call someone damaged or flawed if they had wrinkles? ‘nuff said. **
