BUILFORD Waxed Canvas Bags for men

My favourite feel for a man’s bag these days is the heavy, rugged look of leather and waxed canvas from Builford.

When it comes to jackets, brands like Barbour and Belstaff have gained some recognition and a cult following, but when it comes to bags, Builford is in a league of its own. The brand’s feeling is more intense and distinctive than I remember when I first encountered the Filson brand.

Builford have functional elements that can be used in the environment of men’s adventure activities such as motorcycling, hunting, and bushcrafting, but they also have organized compartments such as a tablet compartment that can be used as a daily bag for the modern man, and a universal design that can be worn with everyday outfits.

One of our favourite designs is the Builford Bikers Crew Backpack.
It is based on the roll-top design of the biker backpack concept, but you can also fold the top to use it as a flap backpack, and in this case, the design is quite simple, so it can be used as a daily man’s backpack for commuting.

The combination of waxed canvas and oiled leather creates a luxurious look that is suitable for both casual and semi-formal wear.

It also has a durable body and design that can be taken on motorbikes, bushcraft camping, and more on the weekends. Design-wise, it’s a great motorbike bag, but it’s also durable enough for the rough and tumble of bushcrafting and has plenty of storage space.

As a side note, if you’re serious about bushcraft, you might want to consider a specialized bushcraft backpack from Builford.


As a man’s bag, I like the brand and the design, and since adventure activities don’t happen all the time, the fact that it can also be used as a daily bag is what makes Builford’s products so appealing.
