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

The Rum Runner is a heavy-duty seabag built from 18oz duck canvas with a luxurious oil-tanned leather bottom. It features a vintage New England rope lanyard that's fully adjustable, and enables the bag to be carried in 5 positions:

  • simple shoulder bag
  • crossbody / messenger
  • duffel bag / ditty bag
  • backpack
  • 2-handle tote / tool bucket

A marine snapshackle plus 2 copper sliders are fitted to the rope lanyard, allowing for a nearly unlimited range of further adjustments and configurations.

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

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