A throw back to rugged and functional gear that’s built to last.
If you could just take one bag to travel the world, the Dakota Military Style Duffle Sea Bag/Canvas backpack might be the one you would take. Made by the Buffalo Jackson Trading Company, this bag offers elite functionality with durability.
Crafted out of waxed canvas and tanned leather this is a solid bag that can withstand any kind of rugged adventure you throw at it. I recently went on a road trip that involved camping and light back packing. Weighing in at about 5 Lbs, it is light enough to comfortably do some light hiking and durable enough to throw next to the camp fire after a long day.
Were huge fans of apparel and items that convey rugged and masculine style. At Refined Beast we try to highlight products that offer elite functionality without forgetting that style conveys refinement and power.
Buffalo Jackson’s website states these bags “were built to honor the memory of good men and good days”.
Honestly, we love what these guys are doing. Men’s fashion has increasingly become feminized and androgynous in recent years. These guys make rugged and functional gear that’s not afraid to embrace an aesthetic that has been weeded out of most “cookie cutter” clothing brands.
They have a tons of other bags and gear that’s worth checking out. None of its very cheap but if your looking for a solid investment in your travel gear then this is the place.
