M/S Explorer - Deep Blue/Black
Designer's note

Designer's note

The M/S Explorer was introduced in Spring 2012 as our first serious travel bag, and it’s still the most spacious weekender in the collection. The inspiration for the bag came from simply strapping a leather belt around another bag which we had wrapped in a new, intriguing army green canvas. The expression and mix of materials was so pure and raw. We kept the belt buckle feature to be able to close the bag tightly and designed the handles with an extra, wider piece of leather underneath adding durability and vigour. The rest we tried to keep simple – aside from the bottom leather grid obviously. Simple at first hand – complex when you take a closer look.


Length 60 cm
Height 30 cm
Width 30 cm
Volume 54 l

As the name suggests, this bag calls for a serious adventure. The M/S Explorer contains ample interior space to hold all the essentials (whatever they may be) for a couple of weeks in the wilderness. Use the handles to carry the bag by hand, over the shoulder or as a backpack or use the detachable shoulder strap if the bag is filled to the maximum. The bag features two outside pockets, an inside pocket in each gusset closed with a leather strap, and an inside zip pocket.

Ballistic Nylon

Exploring the dark navy hues of the ocean deep, this hardwearing ballistic nylon even hints shades of black as a crisp and clean match to its black bridle leather trim and gunmetal accessories. Waterproof by nature and designed for heavy-duty wear, this basket-woven ballistic nylon will stand up to nearly any test an adventurous lifestyle has to offer.

Composition: PA 64% - PL 19% - PU 17% 

Martindale: 50.000 // Weight: 862 gr. per running meter

Solid brass with gunmetal coating

Our hardware is chosen for its durability and therefore made from a base of solid brass material. For our series of ballistic nylons we've given the hardware a sleek gunmetal coating for a clean and modern look. We source all of our hardware from Italy, working with specific articles that we’ve been using and testing for more than 15 years. We only use classic hardware pieces that we know will stand the test of heavy daily wear, like the sailor hooks that appear in many of our designs.

Grey colored

The lining used for our fabric bags is woven from a combination of polyester and viscose. We use this combination as it offers the best durability while still providing a soft and tactile handfeel.

Black, vegetable tanned full grain bridle leather

Full grain is the best quality leather available, maintaining the top layer of the original cowhide intact and unaltered. This ensures that the leather is resistant and ages well, while also highlighting some of the natural characteristics of the grain, such as wrinkles, veins and pores. Bridle leather refers to the way that a piece of leather (cowhide) is treated with wax both on the flesh and grain sides of the leather. With a thickness of approx. 3mm, only the best grades of leather from older cattle can be used, as a certain age is required for the hide to attain the thickness and sturdiness necessary to become bridle leather.

Hand polished YKK Excella zippers

Renowned Japanese company YKK has been producing zippers since 1934. We exclusively use their best zipper available, the Excella zippers. The YKK Excella is the Rolls Royce of zippers, with every element, down to the teeth, perfected and hand-polished. A smooth zipper is indispensable to a well-made bag, after all it should add utility, beauty and longevity to the bag rather than taking away from it.

No dedicated laptop compartment but plenty of space to fit it all!
Not only do I love your product and have several bags and backpacks, which I use on a daily basis, but I also want to congratulate you to your great team, especially Adam. When I was interested in the Explorer travel bag, I had a super nice conversation with Adam and was advised that I could wait a little longer, because there would be my preferred color combination army/cuoio in the pipeline. I was ready to buy a different color that day, because I wanted to travel with it … but I was assured that the new color would arrive in time for me to take it on the trip and that I better wait a couple of days. I thought that was amazing. Not pushing for the sales but giving me good advice instead. Bag arrived in time as promised. Love it and was able to travel with it.
