Wainright x Millican Daypack
A hardwearing, weatherproof backpack inspired by the great UK guidebook creator
For UK-based outdoor lovers the name A. Wainwright holds a certain mythical quality. The man himself was a lifelong wanderer and writer, penning seven hiking guide books over the span of 13 years. His poetic prose complemented the rolling lands—he understood the region, he felt its spirit. To celebrate his unique contribution to British exploration on the home front, Millican has designed and released a daypack named for the man himself, and of course, it’s made by hand entirely in the UK—something everyone can appreciate, British or not.
The Wainwright x Millican Pack is made to endure. Weatherproof and hardwearing, yet timeless in design, the “A” shape backpack is made with 12oz waxed canvas and lined with one part Harris Tweed from the Isle of Lewis, and three parts recycled polyester. Vegetable tanned leather adds a final touch of elegance.
Most bags of this style wouldn’t last a day in any real weather, this bag though, representing the best bits of the Great British Isles, is sure to last a lifetime. For a better look at the pack and it's inspiration, check this beautiful short film made by Millican for the occasion.
