If you’d like, you can forego a middle initial. Each letter is capitalized and in the same size and font. A monogram adds $50 to your order. Provided the item you order is in stock, there is no added lead time if you opt for the monogram.

Product Information

Thoughtful details of practicality complement an elemental, classic design on our Leather Zipper Backpack. A transcendent piece, the Zipper Backpack is just as appropriate with a suit as it is with a sweater, jeans, and sneakers. 

A wrap-around zipper gives access to the main compartment, but the secret weapon is the back zipper pocket. This pocket sits snugly against your back, allowing you to safely carry your most precious cargo, from your laptop to your keys to your manuscript of the next great American novel. A zipper interior pocket gives alternative access to this back pocket, and a front zipper pouch is perfect for carrying sunglasses and other miscellany. 

Adjustable back straps with a loop ensure a comfortable carry no matter your height. 


The monogram on the Leather Zipper Backpack is subtly placed on the back, centered top right in between where the straps meet the handle. The font is Times New Roman and stands about 1/4" in height. You have an option of a deboss (pictures #1 and #2) or a gold foil (pictures #3 and #4). 

By request, we can put the monogram on the exterior of the bag, on the front zipper pocket. Please make note if you'd like this placement in your order notes.

Reminds you what it's like to own a well-made product you love

Better than I expected.

I've had this piece for about a month now and my apartment still smells like leather. It is beautifully constructed and the materials and finishes really reinforce the idea that it will last you a lifetime. Versatile, useful, sophisticated, and luxurious without being flashy. Special mention to the team; I had a lot of questions as this piece represented a big investment for me and they were incredibly helpful, polite, and accommodating.

Ricardo Wilson
Best Designed Backpack Ever!

This bag is the real deal! I'm just a few months in owning this piece and I plan on collecting many more; the design is simple & functional and as close to perfect as you can get. I take my bag everywhere with confidence that it can stand up to whatever this old veteran throws at it. I always get compliments from men and women alike, recommending it just as often and shamelessly love the smell - this bag is a must have!

Great backpack!

I've had this backpack for more than a year now. I've traveled extensively with it - the bag is comfortable to carry around a city all day, and looks great. I also like that while being a very nice bag, it is understated / not flash. Well worth the investment, definitely a five stars product.

Stupendous Bags Junction Backpack

I am so happy to be able to write a most enthusiastic review of this wonderful backpack. I bought it a couple of years ago in the gorgeous bright blue. I have used it a lot, especially for traveling, as a large handbag to be carried in addition to my carryon. It is quite amazing how much I can stuff into it. Even my MacBook Air. The leather is still lovely and the color has not faded, as blues often do. I ALWAYS get compliments, and also inquiries as to where did I get it. It is definitely an attention-getter. As with all my Bags Junction bags, (and I have many) it just gets better and better with use, and age. I unequivocally give it FIVE STARS.
