The Ridgeback doesn't brag. It's a back-to-basics shoulder satchel ideally suited to motorcyclists, FIFO workers and outdoors types. Its features are minimalist and unnecessarily complicate leaving its ample spaces open to multiple uses. The flap construction creates a discreet but generous opening which protects the inside of the bag from weather and dust while the floor of the bag is a huge 15cm x 38cm. Tonnes of space for a light jacket, lunchbox, camera gear, gloves etc.
The flap and the base panel are both double-layered 16oz heavy beeswaxed, cotton canvas. That’s 32oz’s of scuff and skid protection for your gear inside. It’s also more than adequate water protection that can be re-waxed as often as required to protect your investment and add character too. In fact, like all Jack Stillman bags, the more you use it and maintain it, the more unique it’s going to look over the years to come.
