Hi, this is Cross Munson, Dad’s son. I was born in 2009, but when I was 9 years old I designed this lightweight leather backpack because Dad’s backpacks and satchels were too heavy for me. A couple of years ago, I asked Dad if I could design a backpack that was lightweight and he said that I could if I made it strong and with no breakable parts. So I designed this lightweight leather backpack a lot like my old favorite canvas backpack that I carried all over the place. That one had elastic on it, but Dad said I couldn’t use any zippers or elastic or anything that could break. I made the shoulder straps wide and kind of padded so they would be comfortable and I made it with d-rings to close the pockets and a drawstring to close the backpack. My mom and sister carry my backpacks on trips and really like them. I think you’ll like this backpack a lot. You should buy one.
