Build Your Bag

One of the new features of our website that we’re really excited about is our ‘build your bag’ bespoke page.

We have teamed up with Emblzn, to create a virtual workshop where you can create your own bag online, picking the style, colour and material. This allows you to customise and personalise your bags exactly the way you want to.

Our top selling styles have been chosen for this virtual workshop, they are the:


Great for an everyday bag commuting or walking in the countryside. It offers a large main compartment which will easily fit in all your day to day gear.


The Fell is a very popular bag, it is a convenient size, not too big or small for your day to day or afternoon ventures.

Troutbeck 16

This style is a traditional fishing bag, however you can now order a laptop insert for this bag instead of a fishing liner. You can go from the office to the river in no time!

Available with a leather flap for a more formal look or with a canvas leather flap perfect for causal ensemble.

Large Border Rucksack

Perfect for walking and cycling, but also IATA compliant. It is good for carrying a slightly heavier loads on your shoulders, with our wide adjustable webbing straps, the bag can sit comfortably.  Our large Border Rucksack has an approximate capacity of 30 litres.


One of the best sellers in our Women’s range. The Mayfly also reflects a tradition fishing style, available with a leather flap or without, it’s your choice!

Medium Classic Holdall

A brilliant bag for getaways and business trips. There is flexibility with the side flaps, they can be fastened down when carrying by hand to create a neater shape.

Your Designs will also be saved on the Chapman Bags page on Emblzn, so you can revisit your creation when you desire.
