Mount Logan is the highest mountain in Canada, and is the crown jewel of Kluane National Park in Yukon Territory. At 19,550 feet, it towers almost 10,000 feet above the surrounding glaciers and peaks. Located in the southeast corner of Kluane Park, far from the roads and trailheads, it is isolated, very cold, and very exposed, and is normally only accessible by chartered helicopter, or by a 100 km (60 mi) hike in - a very challenging journey! As a result, Mount Logan is one of the last truly wild places in the world!
Fun fact: When the first party climbed Mount Logan in 1925, they had to walk more than 200 km (120 mi) from the nearest town, McCarthy, before they could climb to the summit. The entire trip, including the return to McCarthy at the end, took exactly 65 days. From the day we came up with the idea of Mountain Messenger Co. until the day the store launched was also 65 days.

Our bags are made in a small Indian studio using Indian goat hide leather. Our bags are made of naturally tanned (chemical free) genuine leather and are lined with cotton canvas. All of our hides are oiled, not dyed, which brings out the natural beauty of the leather.
A few things to keep in mind: While we are almost certain that you’ll love your Mountain Messenger Bag, we can’t guarantee that your bag will look exactly like the one shown in our pictures.
Our leather bags are made from un-dyed leather. We are selective about the hides that are used in our bags, but we don’t use dyes to cover the small spots and markings that are natural and authentic.
Goat hides come in a variety of colors and shades. The bag you receive will very likely not be the exact same color as the one shown, and may also combine hides of different shades.
Leather will last for a lifetime. Scratches and snags are unavoidable when our bags are put to good use. Goat hide is soft and very durable, and unlike most leathers, it will actually look even better as it ages! Your bag will develop a beautiful natural patina over time, so don’t be afraid to use it.
Please also note that when you first receive it, your bag will smell of leather – unfortunately, this wonderful smell mostly fades within a few weeks!
