Handcrafted by M&B Ship Canvas - World's Finest Seabags & Ditty Bags

The A/O Sailor is a traditional seabag built from 15oz. canvas duck with oil-tanned leather and solid brass grommets. It features a vintage New England rope lanyard with a solid copper slider, which is fully adjustable and enables the bag to be carried in 5 positions:

  • Simple shoulder bag
  • Crossbody / Messenger
  • Backpack
  • Duffel Bag
  • Upright Tote or Tool Bucket

The interior has a full-size storm flap which prevents rain, fog and heavy sea spray from entering the bag. The storm flap also incorporates a cargo pocket for organizing smaller, 'quick reach' items (phone, wallet, passport, GPS, etc).

There's an external utility loop for attaching keys, flashlight or rigging knife, and each bag includes a marine snapshackle key FOB that can be snapped onto the bag or used separately.
