We are restocked on Southern Field Industries bags!
The rucksack that Southern Field Industries makes is by far the most beautiful I have seen.
The rucksack has the ability to extend to hold more, the straps adjust to fit the larger size, and they are lined with the nicest plaid cotton fabric.
Who Doesn’t love a perfect tote!? We have that is some really amazing colours.
These Waxed Totes are the perfect bag for everything, that is no exaggeration.
The leather straps and bottom make for a clean and fancy look, but also give durability that canvas alone doesn’t have. The more weathered and worn the leather becomes the more beautiful it will look.
The Haversack is a really smart bag design. The way the strap attaches to the bag with D-rings makes for greater comfort even when they are packed with your most prized possessions. The closure is adjustable so you can fill ‘er up.

The interior design is brilliant. There is space to organize your phone, keys and books. the front side features two more pockets so you can delegate your belongings. It’s the most compact possible version of a messenger bag that still features loads of space and organization.
Meet the makers
Manabu and Keiko were in Vancouver for this year’s Gents reserve
Let me introduce you to Keiko, she is funny and lighthearted. Even though we had a slight language barrier (my Japanese is terrible), but we did manage to share a lot of good jokes.
This is Manabu. His father used to own a company that made accessories for jockeys and equestrian riders, it’s in his blood to make finely crafted goods. Manabu is a very kind man who really puts his whole heart into his work.
This is Jasmine, their little helper.
