Home of Millican – Great Outdoor and Travel Bags

After a few weeks of great weather, sadly the rain has finally caught up with us!  It is dark and gloomy outside, but luckily I have done all my training for the day, and it is meant to be sunny tomorrow.

This afternoon in the rain I had a meeting with a great wee local company.  It is a husband and wife run company selling outdoor and travel baggage.  They heard my interview on BBC radio Cumbria a few weeks back on the Patagoniain race and were keen to get in touch, to find out more about what I do, and also to let me know what they do.

The company is called Home of Millican and the bags they make are more along the traditional lines, rather than the lurid coloured high tech lightweight packs you see in all the outdoor shops.  Their ethos is all about sustainability while making great functional bags for the traveller.  They use timelass classics such as Gladstone bag and old style field bags, but updated to be super functional and to stand up to the rigours of modern life.

We had a long chat about all the things we do, and who we knew, realising its a very small world, and it was great to meet a young vibrant company, forging a great new business in a difficult time.  I really hope that they succeed and will try and help spread the word about their great products.

If you are looking for a stylish, durable bag for the weekend travels, or the daily grind, then you could do no worse than checking them out.
