This little backpack is strappy and self-assured, intense and completely unsubtle in the best of ways. It shows off it’s brass ring with confidence, knowing exactly how much practical innovation and originality it brings to this style.

Slide your arms into the straps and carry it over your shoulders, the straps will slide over the ring and automatically adjust to your shoulder width. The brass slider buckle easily adjusts the strap length to your exact specifications.

Pick up the backpack easily by the brass ring, hang it onto your coat hook by the brass ring, and carry it over your arm by the brass ring. It’s practical beyond imagination, and the myriad of uses will continue to surprise you. The tiny brass ring over the closure strap combines appearances with functionality as well, giving you more security while also keeping the small leather strap perfectly in place.

The Monterey is just as at home in Paris as it is in Tennessee, taking on the Alps as easily as it does a trip to the Smoky Mountains. This little backpack does classy as well as casual — it strolls stylishly down the streets of Milan and cheers from the mosh pits at an outdoor concert as well as holding all your fun finds at that summer festival. It was made for adventure, so carry this little backpack along wherever you may land.

    This is the best bag I have ever owned in my entire life. If I did not already have a husband, I would marry this bag. Its so amazingly roomy. I can fill it with an almost unbelievable amount of Mom stuff, without loosing my keys, thanks to the handy key fob on the inside. It sits so comfortably on my shoulders, and honestly it improves my rear view like you wouldn’t even believe. 🙂 This bag also has stacked pockets. I use the top pocket for my cell phone, the one in the bottom to hold my lip gloss, my mints and a comb. Cause girls, you gots to look and smell good all the time! My hashtag for this bag is #komziemutter

    I got my first urban southern bag yesterday. The Monterey backpack and I frigging love it!!!

    See I am not a small model type and most backpacks that are made for women look stupid on me. Not this one.

    It’s great. And the brass disk that self adjusts the strap position is BRILLIANT!!

    The only thing I would change is the addition of an outside zipper pocket so I can get to my phone without opening the top but that’s minor.

    So thank you for making this really cool bag.

    This little backpack packs a big punch. It looks small on the outside, but it’s a Mary Poppins bag! I own multiple Urban Southern bags…and something about this leather seems softer…in a good way. The nipple rivet closure is a little tight at first, but it gets easier to close the bag over time. It took me about a week of daily use to break in the closure — but it still shuts the bag securely. This piece is very unique. There are lots of mini backpacks out there, but none quite like this little beauty. Keep up the good work, girls! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
