The original John ‘hybrid’ Backpack is now available in an exclusive full leather edition. When walking or riding, wear it as a backpack and when you arrive, simply pull the top strap to transform it into a shoulder bag.
This ultra-durable hybrid backpack is hand-crafted from two leather types, we use durable Bridle leather for the base and straps and a lighter-weight cow leather for the main body to reduce the overall weight without compromising on the quality. The full bridle leather base houses a Knox shock absorbent armour layer - to protect your laptop/camera/kit from impact if dropped. The large Brass zip fastener is protected with a storm flap, protecting the entire zip from rain when in motion.
The John Hybrid Backpack features a padded laptop pocket (for up to a 15” laptop), five interior tool pockets, wide padded leather adjustable shoulder straps for extra comfort. Made with an organic red cotton interior (with the Malle print) and solid welded brass hardware and a quilted back for a more comfortable bag, with heavy duty stitching throughout.
Malle luggage and bags are built to last. Our durable fabrics, heavy duty stitching, waterproof membranes, impact protection, solid welded- brass hardware and bridle leather will age extremely well and bare the wear and tear of an adventurous life.
Darker colour waxed cotton fabrics can fade if left in direct sun light for very long periods of time, this is a part of the ageing process. The wax in the cotton canvas protects the fabrics from dirt, water and sun, so please make sure your Malle is kept in good condition, for a longer and happier life.
To help you keep your bag in perfect condition – please use the correct Malle wax to maintain waterproofing and leather conditioner on the leather.

MERINO WOOL, ALPACA AND NATURAL COTTONSMerino Wool is a real super-fabric for adventure. The shape of the thread has a ‘crimp’ that traps air in pockets in the fibre, creating greater insulation against the elements, which also makes it supremely soft and comfortable. Merino Wool is great for regulating body temperature, because of its breathability. It is also moisture wicking and can absorb 30% of its weight in moisture, drawing perspiration away from the skin, whilst still maintaining it’s ability to insulate. Better yet, it naturally resists bacteria and prevents odor retention. It’s an easy fabric to wash and look after and holds it’s shape really well. Pease see the care instructions on each garment, as a general guide all Merino Wool garments should be washed cold by hand and dried flat.
