Made specifically for traveling, this is now the fifth generation Northwesterner. The classic feel you expect, but a few updates we know you’ll appreciate. It’s a bag that begs you to travel – a companion that will always get you there and back with ease. Tough enough for harsh conditions, stylish and smart when you’re checking into a fine hotel. Loosely based on the classic styling from our Carpenter, but taken up a notch in sophistication without losing its rugged roots.
The biggest change this year is upgrading to an even sturdier canvas weight. We’ve chosen a waxed cotton canvas in an even tougher #8 weight. Hidden steel frame to keep shape and make loading a cinch. Solid brass YKK#10 zipper to secure everything. Built to conform to most airline carry-on specs, this is the bag to fly with. Lots of room, three pockets inside, zipper outer pocket ready to stash your passport and wallet when strolling through security check.
The bag opens to 9 in x 21in for easy loading and unloading. A subtle metal frame in the upper keeps the bag’s shape when opened or closed. Rolled and stitched handles using the finest leather are durable, but also extremely comfortable in your hand from day one.
Dimensions: 22 in wide x 13 in tall (without handles) x 8 in deep.
Materials: Made with the most durable #8 waxed canvas, luxurious and tough leather from SB Foot Tanning Co, solid brass tumbled hardware and stout YKK zippers. Ships with matching leather shoulder strap. Our small production runs ensure excellent quality with a rugged warranty to match.
