Ultimate Weekender



The Ultimate Weekender
Space and Time in very Special Relativity

We have no Einsteinian pretensions but we are perfectionists in the art, the craft and yes, the science of bag making.

In this one bag we have solved the ‘weekend bag conundrum'.  Too much and you look as though you have arrived for a week. Too little and questions of personal hygiene are evidenced in your hosts raised eyebrows.

But, arrive with your Ultimate Weekender and you announce yourself as a very smart guest indeed. Everything you need but with absolutely no excess baggage, all neatly packed into the perfection of the Chapman bag making craft.

With no false modesty we declare this to be the best bag we have made and are confident it will stand the test of time for many weekends to come!

Of course, the Ultimate Weekender can be used for business trips, aided by its integrated laptop and charger pockets. Its pure elegance might even help in harmonising one's work-life balance.

Just as it takes time to create something timeless it takes time to learn the skills to do so.
