    Tireless. Croots for hikers

    Made from strong, waxed cotton canvas (24 oz), Croots makes this backpack that's just as suitable for day hikes as it is for city tours. Especially for us, Croots has not only produced a larger version of the backpack, but has also equipped it with some practical details. Thus, the mesh pocket in front takes rain jacket, map or water bottle. Side loops with dual adjustable cartridge pocket closure hold trekking and hiking poles, walking stick or umbrella. On the other side is a leather loop with D-ring to which, for example, a water bottle can be attached by means of an S-carabiner. The neatly leather kedered edges, the straps made of 3 mm thick saddle leather and shoulder straps made of cotton canvas are just as durable and hard-wearing as the material of the body of the backpack, which is not impressed by mechanical stress or by moisture or wetness (in moderation).
    Thanks to its satchel shape, the large main compartment offers plenty of storage space. A map or book are well protected and quickly accessible in the slip pocket, while the flat compartments on top of it hold a phone and pen. As with all the Croots models in our range, the lining here is also bright red - not only a colorful gimmick, but also extremely practical, as the contents of the backpack are much easier to see than with a dark lining.

    British Craft. Bags from Croots

    The British label Croots is one of the leather goods manufacturers that have virtually earned the reputation of a traditional company in a short time. So it doesn't always take centuries of experience, but first and foremost you have to understand your craft and then use the right materials. This is what John and Margaret Smith had in mind when, in 1978, they produced the first bags and cases for hunting and fishing under the "Field Sports Products" label: in the traditional way and using solid materials such as strong saddle leather and robust cotton canvas. Later, travel bag and small leather goods are added. When daughter Jackie and son-in-law Allistair Croot took over the business in 2004, they changed nothing about it, except for the name. Since then, "Croots" has become a byword for British craftsmanship and solid bags worldwide, and even the royal family owns a few Croots bags.
    The bags are designed and manufactured at the company's site in Malton, North Yorkshire. The materials also come from the island: the weaving takes place in Keighley, West Yorkshire, the waxed cotton canvas is sourced from the traditional Scottish manufacturer Halley Stevensons at Croots, and the fittings come from foundries in Walsall, West Midlands, or Sheffield. Only the zippers are sourced by Croots from Riri in Switzerland. Finally, the leather is vegetable tanned and processed in the best saddlery manner. Mostly it is so-called English Bridle Leather, which is mainly used for saddles, bridles and belts, because it hardly gives thanks to a special tanning.
