To ensure top quality, the materials for our canoe pack are sourced from Germany, Italy and France. Whether near empty or stuffed to the brim, the bag maintains its shape thanks to its sturdy doubled canvas bottom and inner seams piped with cotton band. Two interior compartments allow you to separate contents, and the front section has a zippered pouch for keeping smaller items such as keys or travel documents. (It’s also useful when you want to hide your valuables from view, since there are no exterior pockets.) The hemp drawstring and buffalo horn stopper smoothly open and close the pack, along with the saddle leather straps and brass buckles. The two side flaps inside can also be attached to avoid spillage when the backpack is laid on its side. Providing comfort and durability, the wool felt padded shoulder straps are secured with copper rivets sewn on with a saddle leather patch.
Rather than keep the Seil Marschall logo on the outside, we chose to put it inside the bag for a cleaner aesthetic while still honoring the company’s heritage. This design feature is exclusive to Kaufmann Mercantile.
