Carry Giveaway :: Wainwright x Millican Pack
The Wainwright x Millican Pack is a project built on devotion and dedication. A bag that celebrates the achievements of renowned British fellwalker Alfred Wainwright. A backpack that showcases British craftsmanship, creativity and materials. And we’re giving one away…
The Father of Fellwalking
The Lake District has arguably some of the best walking landscapes in the world. A bold claim perhaps, but one that is hard to dispute after meandering along the numerous trails, ascending the hills and mountains of the region, and taking in the spectacular views.
Alfred Wainwright is a key figure in the history of fellwalking (essentially hill and mountain walking), and has passed his love of the fells onto a worldwide audience with his popular guidebooks. He documented 214 fells (known as the Wainwrights) in his seven-volume A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells. “Bagging” Wainwrights is a popular challenge amongst fellwalkers, with some even managing to complete all 214.
To honor Wainwright in suitable fashion, Lake District-based Millican have partnered with diverse makers from across the UK to create a durable bag that will embrace the fells with enthusiasm, letting you roam in the footsteps of Wainwright with your adventure essentials in tow.
Crafted by hand in the UK, the Wainwright x Millican Pack features an exterior made of 12oz canvas from Dundee-based Halley Stevensons. Harris Tweed from the Isle of Lewis forms the lining, while the vegetable-tanned leather is sourced from Italy and dyed in the UK. Each pack is made by hand in Sheffield, with a limited edition batch of 100 in total produced.
The pack offers two exterior expandable pockets secured with stained wood buttons, plus an exterior bottle pocket. There are also two interior pockets, as well as an interior padded compartment that fits a 15″ laptop. The pack includes a leather grab handle, leather yokeback patch, and adjustable padded shoulder straps.
