Why choose a backpack for your carry on
Boarding a plane can be quite a physically exhausting experience, long periods of queueing, the proximity of other people and the difficulty of stowing your hand luggage in confined spaces. You need to be able to be able to access your passport and easily remove items such as phones and laptops from your luggage. You need luggage which is comfortable to carry, secure and yet easy to open. MAHI backpacks are sturdy, stylish and thanks to their adjustable shoulder straps, easy to carry. All MAHI backpacks comply with airline carry on size restrictions.
Which style is best?
MAHI offer a range of backpacks to suit your style. The Classic Backpack in full grain leather, suede or canvas and leather is a timeless design with maximum carrying capacity. The Nomad is a retro variation with buckle fastenings and a large central compartment secured by a drawstring. The Explorer and Roma have a slightly smaller capacity but offer a stylish alternative to the everyday handbag. MAHI backpacks come in a range of colours and can be personalised with up to four characters of your choice.
The Classic Backpack
Available in premium full grain leather, or a cotton canvas and leather combo, the classic backpack is a sturdy and spacious travel companion. A front zip pocket, internal zip pocket and two internal compartments enable you to organise and access with ease. The Classic Backpack is available in vintage brown or ebony black leather, maroon, grey or vintage cognac suede, or in a leather/canvas combo of black canvas and ebony black leather or maroon canvas and vintage brown leather.
Leather vs Canvas
Full grain leather will last a lifetime and develop a rich patina, the canvas alternative, though very durable is not as strong, however, if you intend to use your backpack in very wet conditions, the waxed canvas will suffer less damage as a result of drenching, than leather. Both versions of the backpack are trusty travel companions and ultimately, it’s down to your personal preference.
The Explorer Backpack
A stylish backpack with an easy access front pocket, with popper fastening and buckle detailing, back zip pocket and internal zip pocket and a super secure interior with a buckle secured leather flap over a zip closure. Available in vintage brown or ebony black, this a spacious alternative to a handbag.
The Roma Backpack
Like the Explorer, this great looking bag is a carry-on backpack that has the good looks of a handbag. Two front zip pockets, a back pocket and an internal zip pocket give you plenty of scope to organise your possessions. Available in vintage brown or ebony black.
The Nomad Backpack
This lovely retro backpack features two big front pockets with buckle fastenings, an internal zip pocket and a large central compartment, covered by a buckled flap and secured by a leather drawstring. Available in vintage brown, this distinctive backpack is a real eye-catcher.
