Check out the video to see the interesting features of this unique backpack. We love the slimline profile and the added security.


The Cornish Backpack is a unique new backpack design from Country Cow Designs.

What makes this backpack different from others? The straps come through the top of the bag, making it more difficult for people to take things out of your bag while you’re wearing it. It also allows you to carry it on your arm like a tote when you need to.

Other features include a magnetic snap and optional zipper closure panel that folds flat within the bag.
It has two front pockets that are sized to carry a standard drink bottle or your flip flops.
It is sized to fit most standard laptops, including a MS Surface, with room to spare.
