The Welsh Mtn Rolltop is a masterfully crafted backpack that combines generations of leather knowledge into a simply elegant bag. Designed to be tough, gorgeous and incredibly functional, the rolltop presents itself as a no-frills utility backpack. The use of leather straps, as opposed to zippers, adds a greater level of utility and durability. The handcrafted leather construction of the Welsh Mtn Rolltop comes as courtesy of the Smucker Family. This legendary family of leather workers has been crafting leather goods for the equestrian industry for three generations, and this backpack is considered the culmination of decades of knowledge and craftsmanship.

Aesthetically speaking the Welsh Mtn Rolltop is far from modern, but that was the exact focus of the designers. Built to invoke images of Canadian voyageurs or rugged mountain men, the rugged leather bag calls back to a time of handcrafted quality construction. The rugged nature may imply an idea of discomfort for the wearer, but thanks to fully adjustable straps, the rolltop is quite easy to carry and can handle the heaviest loads.
