The Name’s Kobuk. THE Kobuk.


Meet the best and last large leather backpack you’ll ever need. Once you’ve experienced life with this classy companion by your side, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without him.

Backpack (/ˈbakpak/)
“a rucksack for carrying one’s belongings when travelling or hiking”.

A simple enough definition, and we guess most regular backpacks fit that description. But you’re not regular. And you need more than a rucksack to throw your stuff into. You need something durable. Something tough. Something that just as handsome as it is strong. You need The Kobuk, the best men's leather backpack for travel you’ll find. And good news – you found it.

Designed with the rugged modern-day mansplorer in mind, The Kobuk delivers everything you’ve ever wanted in a backpack (and a few things you didn’t know you needed). There’s ample space for your daily essentials in this large leather backpack – like your phone, keys, and snacks of choice – as well as bigger staples for weekend camping trips. Seriously, you’ll be surprised at just how much you can fit inside this bad boy. All without weighing you down (thanks, savvy leather backpack designers!).

It’s Designed to Go the Distance

Man’s been making stuff with leather for millennia, but it took 7,000 for The Kobuk to make its debut.

This rugged leather masterpiece has your back (literally) from the office to the bar to the bush.

He’ll flow flawlessly between each role like a champ. From the office to Mount Everest, he’ll carry all your gear without complaint.

It’s Built for the Outdoors

When looking for the best leather backpack for hiking, you need to tick a few boxes. Comfortable and adjustable shoulder straps, spaciousness, water resistance, a padded laptop sleeve…we
could go on, but we don’t have to.

Because The Kobuk ticks every adventurer’s box head-on. It’s made to move wherever you move, while protecting your things against the wrath of mother nature.

It’s Unique

Owning your own stylish Kobuk leather backpack means owning something no one else has.

Why? Because each is made at the hands of local leather artisans. Yours will bear the personality of the craftsman behind every crease. Mass manufacturing? What’s that?

Get him the gift that keeps on giving – a rolltop leather backpack he’ll use everywhere. And we mean everywhere. With this many easy-to-access interior and exterior pockets, he’ll never stuff his things in your handbag ever again.

great leather

New to this whole leather thing, so didn't know what to expect. Just used it for the first time this weekend and was blown away. Leather feels amazing, it's comfortable and holds so much gear. Would highly recommend. Thanks!

Thanks Mick! That's terrific to read, we're glad you're enjoying your new bag.

Even better than I expected

Completely love these bags. My dad bought one for me for a birthday gift, then bought one for himself too when he saw mine. We've been going hiking mainly with them. They hold up great. Dad joked the other day he thinks he'll wear out before his bag does lol

That's great to hear TJ, thanks for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. We're so glad you and your dad are getting great use from your bags.

Preciosa y muy buena calidad

Costó y demoró que llegara a Chile (no tienen envío al extranjero por lo que tuve que enviarlo a una casilla en USA y que desde allá enviaran el paquete (+100USD). Sin embargo, valió la pena y el dinero, pues es una mochila preciosa, de gran tamaño y buen acabado, la única sugerencia sería el packaging, ya que se le hacen arrugas al cuero que no se harían de manera natural, lo que dificulta que adquiera la forma de mochila.

Thanks for taking the time Valentina! Here is the english translation of this review:

Beautiful and very good quality

It cost and took time to get to Chile (they do not have shipping abroad so I had to send it to a box in the USA and have the package sent from there (+ 100USD). However, it was worth it and the money, because it is a beautiful bag, large and well finished, the only suggestion would be the packaging, since small wrinkles are made in the leather, but this is ok.
