Since its establishment in the 1980s by Cumbrian craftsman, John Chapman, Chapman Bags have been producing the finest and most durable bags from only the highest quality canvas, leather and tweed. In this month’s installment, we investigate the Chapman Original range offered by the brand.

Completely versatile in its aesthetic, the Chapman Original range from Chapman Bags caters to both men and women. With this in mind, it stands to reason that Chapman Original is the best-selling range by the Cumbrian brand.

Blending effortlessly into any outfit, the Chapman Original range includes bags suitable for every occasion, ranging from men’s shoulder bags to rucksacks to general luggage. These are, needless to say, adorned with all the aspects of Chapman Bags that’ve made them consistently popular over the years. Features of the brand that’ve kept outdoor pursuits pioneers coming back to the Cumbrian brand time and time again include traditional waterproof bonded cotton canvas, military specification webbing and solid brass hardware. This is perfectly complemented by English vegetable tanned leather fittings and sturdy construction which guarantees awe inspiring and audacious ventures in a long lifespan.

Effortlessly camouflaged to disappear in the surroundings of any environment, the Chapman Original collection comes dressed in shades of classic Khaki and Olive Green, and in some cases, Deep Olive and Navy. Through the brand’s offer of a bespoke service, these different colour combinations can be specified upon ordering.

The men’s range from Chapman Original includes The Fell, an aptly chosen name describing an elevated level of ground frequently dotted around the Lake District, the home of Chapman Bags. One could argue the Fell was awarded this name as its truly versatile, and could easily conquer the heights and terrains that lie ahead with its sturdy build and handy size that’s the perfect accompaniment to any activity.

Also included within the Chapman Original range is The Classic Holdall. The Classic Holdall comes in a triad of sizes, and presents itself as a user friendly and durable piece of kit, dressed in a handsome and stylish aesthetic. The Small suits perfectly as an accompaniment for days out, weekends and trips to the gym. The Medium would suit a well-earned week away anywhere exotic or close to home, while The Large is more than adequate for anything longer and more adventurous.

Last but by no means least in the Chapman Original range comes The Rambler from Chapman Bags, a considerably larger bag dressed in pockets and ready for adventure, fully zipped for maximum storage. The Rambler’s name embodies the spirit of the bag – more than adequate for the most rough and ready adventurer, perfect for air, land or sea.

Recognising that women are as perfectly seasoned outdoor activists as men, Chapman Bags also offer women’s bags in the Chapman Original range. Based on the heritage fishing and shooting designs, the Women’s range incorporates ever-essential aspects such as interior zipped pockets.

The Heather is an elegant tweed and leather shoulder bag, taking inspiration from a heritage cartridge bag design, featuring an interior zipped pocket for all the essentials the modern woman needs while out on an adventure.

Alternatively, Chapman Bags offer the Mayfly Satchel, which has been updated to incorporate adjustable magnetic clasps and a removable interior poppered purse. The design for the Mayfly Satchel takes inspiration from a classic fishing bag, redesigned to blend into any outfit, suitable for all occasions.

The Women’s Chapman Original collection also includes a Small Classic Holdall, which, as the name suggests, holds everything required for a weekend away or those gym essentials required for building muscle.
