Our most popular backpack – the Harper Backpack – has been completely redesigned to offer the ultimate in a tough yet luxurious backpack.
Thanks to our obsession with creating the ultimate in backpacks, we did not settle for anything less than the best on our redesigned Harper.
The new Harper backpack is elegant enough for jaunts in the city with the tenacity and endurance to handle rough weather and harsh terrains. We’ve added a useful 13-inch padded laptop compartment – making this a bag that can go anywhere from work to the wilderness. The buttery-soft leather is amazingly durable and can last a lifetime with a minimum of care. (Please see our Care Guide). Crazy Horse leather is famed for its rock-solid durability and beautiful color striations.
We added a detachable suede interior lining to the Harper, making it ideal for hikes and rough weather. Keeping the inside of your bag clean and dry has never been so easy – simply flip up the inner liner to clean, before tucking it back inside the backpack—the top fold-over flap double-latches, keeping all your contents safe, secure, and dry. There are two zippered side-pouches for extra storage and a large, secure front pocket that is handy for your cell phone and credit cards. The interior boasts laptop storage, extra pockets, and a removable liner to provide first-rate convenience and organization. The straps are padded and built for superior weight distribution, and there is a convenient leather loop on top for hanging.
Every Harper backpack comes with a complimentary drawstring bag. The newly redesigned Harper is available in 3 stunning colors.
Every bag is crafted from the finest quality Crazy Horse leather – which means that each bag is unique. Crazy Horse leather is prized for its ability to turn bumps and scratches into stunning color variations.

Received mine didnt know so big giving to my daughter and ordering mini. lets hope they are available soon
I haven’t had my Harper for long and due to excess February snowfall have used it only three times. It’s too new and too high a quality and just too . . . dazzling . . . to risk such elements. Not yet.
I used one backpack for 40 long years. It went to the supermarket. It hiked the coast of Cornwall, the Isle of Skye, Paris, Rome, the woods of Oregon and the hills of California.
One day it could not take another step and died in a trash can in Maine. I bought a new one I disliked so much that I never used it but gave it to a friend who works with someone he said would like to have it.
I bought a second backpack and, though I gamely used it for several months, it kept falling off one shoulder. (The straps were wide, and attached right to the top outer edges.) I cast it aside forever.
I bought the Harper, which BTW is a family name come down from Scotland. It is perfect. Its looks are awesome, and I have saddle soap that I use on all leather goods. (I like shiny bags and shiny boots, even on the trail.)
I latched the buckle into the lower hole so the straps don’t hang over the small compartment below them. This means they will be less inclined to curl up at the ends, which all hanging leather straps do after 30 or 40 years of constant use. It helps me to snap them shut, too, which can be awkward when Harper is not bulging with contents. Could be my arthritic fingers, which cause all manner of stupid little probs. (I am 86.) I do walk many miles, usually with walking poles, and, while I no longer drive, I ride an adult trike everywhere I go (yes, in Boston traffic). This makes carrying a backpack essential. Thank you for making such a good one.
I saw the Yukon Bags ads on line, and attracted to their leather products. A few days later, I ordered a backpack (Harper Leather Backpack). It arrived faster than I expected, even in those pandemic days. (I live in Canada, by the way.) This leather bag is a kind of art, beautiful art. It is also very practical. I put some books (large-size music score books) and my iPad & wallet & card holder & etc. Those small pockets are very useful. The backpack may look a bit small, but it is just right size for my daily use. I am very happy.
I received on as a gift, and I am purchasing shoulder pads for it. I really like it and I will use it a lot!
so happy with this back pack that i have bought 3 so far, make great gifts to people that you really care about, good quality and so handy to have
