Chapman Bags

 

Cumbria-based outdoor pursuits entrepreneurs Chapman Bags offer a vast range of practical and stylish bags to suit all adventures, whether on a long weekend expedition or on an afternoon hike. This month, we take an in-depth look into The Dunmail Collection, and the products on offer within.

 

The Dunmail Collection tips its cap to its Cumbrian heritage, taking its name from the legendary Dunmail, the last King of Cumbria. In his honour, the Dunmail Collection are exclusively made in Britain, heralding the talents of Chapman Bags’ craftsmen and women. Dyed and woven Cordura makes up the signature quality cloth Chapman Bags are recognised for, emblazoned with British cast bespoke brass hardware and a Dunmail toggle – a tip of the cap to traditional fishing floats used by Britain’s countless fishermen. These too were lovingly crafted by hand utilising turned and waxed English Ash wood, with the finest padded technology storage to ensure all your belongings remain dry whatever the weather.

 

Chapman Bags – Dunmail Collection

 

The first piece in the Chapman Bags Dunmail Collection is the Patterdale Pouch (£137.50). Named after the picturesque parish in the Lake District, the Patterdale Pouch is a compact shoulder bag, perfect for everything today’s rambler needs when travelling. Crafted lovingly by hand in Chapman Bags’ Cumbrian workshops, the Patterdale Pouch is made up of a full leather exterior rear slip pocket, complete with a press stud fastening. With several pockets for all the essentials, the Patterdale Pouch, with an interior padded pocket to hold a tablet or iPad mini. Firmly closing, the Patterdale Pouch features an exclusive Dunmail toggle fastening, crafted from English Ash wood. Able to blend into any outfit effortlessly, the Patterdale Pouch is available in shades of Graphite Grey, complete with a grey cotton lining, and Slate Blue, with a beautiful red cotton lining, as with the whole Dunmail Collection.

 

This is accompanied by the Grisedale Satchel (£289.50), the perfect companion for the commute to and from work, or just for general purpose travelling. Taking its name from the Grisedale Pike fell in the Lake District, the Grisedale Satchel is made from the finest waterproof British dyed and woven Cordura, a rugged material specifically designed for demanding field applications. To keep technology safe on the go, the Grisedale Satchel features a padded interior compartment which accommodates laptops perfectly for today’s businessman. Two large front pockets are sure to fit everything required for a long weekend or for pads and paper in a working environment, guarded by a leather storm flap and signature Dunmail toggle fastenings made of English Ash wood, sculpted by hand in Chapman Bags’ Cumbrian workshop.

Last but by no means least in the Dunmail Collection is the Helvellyn Rucksack (£339.50). Named after the mountain in the Lake District and the highest point of the Helvellyn range. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that the Helvellyn Rucksack is the sturdiest and most environment-combating of the collection. Much like its prestigious predecessor, the Helvellyn Rucksack is lovingly handmade from 100% waterproof British dyed and woven Cordura in Chapman Bags’ Cumbrian workshop, and is the perfect companion for any journey whether it be hiking, cycling or touring and constantly on the road. Its spacious interior means the Helvellyn Rucksack has a capacity of up to 25 litres, and features a Dunmail toggle fastening, exclusive to the Dunmail collection, made from English Ash wood. A padded laptop compartment ensures all your gadgets remain safe upon arrival at your destination. Embodying its mountain-like nature, the Helvellyn Rucksack features a mountaineering style solid brass 4 bar strap adjuster.
