Meet the Pioneer. This foot soldier lives for new experiences and forging trails of it’s own. It will fearlessly explore new paths and it loves to make a way for others to follow.
Not only brave, this everyday messenger touts a cool, simple style with sophisticated organization. But be warned; Pioneer gets bored easily with routines and narrow minded thinking. This one lives on the new and original, but don’t be afraid; it will still go where you lead it… for awhile. Up for the challenge? We thought so.
Just like it’s namesake, the Pioneer is a bit different than most of it’s family. With strategic leather detailing that adds strength and style, a permanently attached shoulder strap and a traditional, simple buckle closure (no top zipper), it’s also helped us see that new & different is actually really good. Pioneer’s buckle closure is ultra sturdy, you can easily get in and out quickly and the adjustable strap gives you some options to carry a little more or cinch it down when you have a lighter load.
Pioneer still packs all our signature organizational essentials from a removable padded divider, interior pockets and a back pocket. Plus a 15” laptop fits snugly between the sides of the divider and the bag so it’s safe while you’re out being original. The Pioneer has a bit more structure and drive than its long-lost cousin Kate.
With names like Annie Oakley and Columbus, being called a Pioneer is no small feat. But it’s all quite simple; think for yourself and be brave enough to open a door that everyone else is too scared to touch. All of this maybe a bit intimidating, but with Pioneer by your side (or dragging you forward) you can safely go where no man, or woman, has gone before.
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. The canvas color may vary slightly**
