5 Best Minimalist Plain Leather Backpacks

Time to Seconds: 5 Minutes 22 Seconds

When it comes to active professionals, students or any people casually moving around, 'backpacks' are so-called the most 'popular'. The first accepted design dates back to 1878 by Henry Merriam, also called a knapsack, in which Merriam tried to design it with a wooden frame and a soft canvas rucksack. It then journeyed a very long way with Ole Bergan's juniper wood 'keyhole' backpack in 1908 to 1920's The Trapper Pack by Lloyd Nelson.

First Backpacks Ever

Also backpacks have been into various skins from metal and wood to even canvas. In 1938, zippers were first added to backpacks by Jerry Cunningham and also first experimented in Nylon, and in 1952 the modern backpack was created in aluminum frames. Same Gerry Cunningham successfully sold backpacks at a commercial level where all his bags were sold out at the Washington University's bookstores

Thus a fully developed backpack began its life with the military men where they were mainly used to carry heavy loads while trekking and camping which then glided on to more recreational usage like hiking and mountaineering in the early twentieth century. 1960s saw the rise of casual backpacks in the American market where students were seen carrying nylon backpacks to schools. It was developed a niche market for the travelers during the same period.

High On Leather brings you back this legacy with prime leather. We explored the whole the demands and supplies of segmented backpacks all across the globe and have included these top 5 designs exclusively for you:


Small Leather Trekking Backpack

This is the era when people are becoming increasingly conscious of health and fitness. Hiking as it is being considered the best option for low impact workouts, as also suggested by doctors, you need the best accompanying partner in your hike journey. The top essentials that experts suggest to pack in hiking are navigation tools, sun-protection, additional clothes for extreme weather conditions, flashlights, of course first-aid box, fire arrangements, repair tools, additional food, adequate water for the journey, and also an emergency shelter like a tent.

We thought of all these, and felt that the generous cowhide is the healthiest backpack you will ever find in leather. The high tensile of cow skin lets you go carefree with extensive luggage that you may carry at ease. The 12.20 ”x 5.11 '' carriage has a large chamber to accommodate most of your essentials with three external front pockets and an internal zipper pocket.

Leather Briefcase BackpackLeather Backpack cum Briefcase

Satchels, for men between 60s and 90s have been a trendsetter. However, we have seen more wide satchels with a single diagonal strap. Our team re-invented the love for satchel when we broadcasted our vertical satchel with two leather straps converting it to the most happening backpack.

This exclusive brown piece, more popular among the students and professionals is made of genuine goat-leather and sizes 16 "x 12. With 3 large compartments, 2 side pockets, 1 front pocket, 1 zippered pocket on top flap and 1 zippered at the back, this bags offers you an abundance of usage, and room for every small item. It also has a briefcase handle on top for professionals.


Leather Backpack With Multiple Pockets

For those who are not happy with the brown or lighter shades, or isn't contented with a goat leather piece even for a casual round, this is an extravagant leather item beautifully crafted with all the essential skills of a pure leather backpack.

A 100% genuine and a premium full-grain cowhide leather bag, this is dark walnut brown, and as it suggests it offers you the more professional, the even more rich-feelings with its must-say features. Sizing between 13.38 "x 5.11", this contains slots for every possible item you can think of carrying with you, from cellphone to wallet, and even two pen / pencil slots. The sleeve protection for both laptop and tablet makes it the best choice for students as well as executive professionals.

Best Leather BackpackLeather Folding Backpack

One of the most exclusive designs, this is one of its kind. When you are looking ahead to handpick the most premium design at a pocket-friendly price, best suited as a present or even for personal use, we have an offer. This amazing multi-purpose leather backpack combines the best features of a satchel and a backpack, and still maintains the class with its high-end shape and design.

Essentially made of goat-leather for we needed the softness and flexibility to craft its design, this warm brown backpack gimmicks wonderful straps. We have artfully designed this piece so as to make the straps, a show. With the top flap curving out, the straps are the best support, two major at the sides and one smaller covering the front flap. A handle on top and two shoulder straps, this accommodates your ipads, laptops, chargers, wallets and all you want to carry.


Leather Camera Backpack

When it comes to the photographer's art endeavors, the man with his highly expensive lenses stands totally clueless. Carrying the heavy weight lenses to the remote corners, placid oceans and high mountains, in the deserts, on the streets, in the buses, trains or in between the mob, photography without a friendly carriage is a pain.

We gave this a free thought and reviewed all the alternatives available across territories. What is found was really disheartening. The only options available to these people are the Messenger bags , which is laborious and strenuous for the loaded shoulder. So we instead of one, we put it across two and designed a revolutionary backpack with organized chambers for both laptops, and the camera along with a spacious room for 4-6 lenses. The small compartment can easily accommodate smaller accessories, charger, notebook or any other personal items.

Already in huge demand, this excellent piece will be launched very soon.
