BRAND | Home of Millican: Designed to Explore

 

Ramble loves discovering new British-based brands creating awesome outdoor-adventure products, inspired by the natural spaces on our own homeland. Based in the beautiful Lake District, Home of Millican designs sustainable bags for the conscious traveller, for those who want to pack a bag and explore; to live simply, away from the stresses of modern life and be wild for a while. 

 
 

"Millican celebrates the meaning in every journey.

Inspired by the restless spirit of the open road, we create lifelong companions for the conscious traveller and deep thinker."

 
 

We've been using the 25L Smith the Roll Pack for the past few months; an excellently designed, sustainable backpack with pockets a-plenty and a vintage style we adore. Indeed, with a secret laptop compartment, two water bottle/flask carriers, zip-pockets that perfectly fit your phone, wallet, keys and other essentials, the team at Millican have everything covered with this perfect day-pack. Our go-to bag for spending a day in the hills or packing for a weekend away.

Smith the Roll Pack uses 57% recycled materials and weatherproof Bionic Canvas that is 30% stronger. It has aluminium buckles that recall the past and a roll-top style making the bag expandable or keeping it small and light.

 
 

Inspired by explorer Millican Dalton, who swapped city-life in the Big Smoke for a life of adventure in the English Lake District, Millican embodies the idea of travel, escape, living simple, sustainably and free. Here at Ramble, we love the Millican design and ethos, and are thrilled to get to carry the brand wherever we ramble, in the UK and beyond.
