If you’re looking for a rugged wilderness backpack built with time-tested performance features and throwback good looks, you’ll want to give the  AP047 Saunter backpack a second look. The Japanese outdoor brand has crafted a carryall that’s practically a window into a bygone era, one before the advent of Cordura and foam padding. It features a metal frame bracing system and a paraffin oiled cotton-canvas shell, as well as genuine cow leather straps lined with felt for comfort. A series of five leather lash-tabs on an otherwise blank surface rounds out the details.
