The classic yet modern design coupled with the functional expandable size and instant access pocket make it the one bag you can rely on, whether it is for business, photography and even the overnight travels.

Our daily routine is less of a routine and more of a set of activities that happen alongside the ones we were expecting that day. We found ourselves having to switch between one bag to another for primarily two reasons: size and design

That is why we set out to create a bag that would be by definition flexible, one that we could proudly take wherever you go. 

On average we use a bag on more than 300 out of 364 days so it’s time to take out the right one! 

The front pocket is always the handy option for quick access to your camera gear. Easily open it with one hand to take out your camera or switch between lenses.

All backers of the 24 & 48Hr Classic Bag will receive a leather shoulder pad. If you wish to get a 2nd shoulder pad with your reward, please add £6 to your current pledge and send us a quick message to let us know.

Do you know that feeling when you pack your bag to the limit and then you find that there is an extra zip that you can open to expand your bag? Inspired by the larger travel luggage, we wanted to bring this convenient feature to our daily bag. 

Because there is no single ideal size, the 48Hr Classic adapts to your needs by expanding 70% from its original size.

Need to get out of town for a couple of days? Sure, just expand the 48Hr Classic and get packing for the journey. 

Often I would pack everything into a bag to get me there and then I would find that I needed another one to move around the city. 

We designed the 48Hr Classic to fix this problem so now you can zip up the expandable compartment and it becomes a compact messenger that you can carry during the day.

It is time for a bag that combines a discreet exterior with a smart interior. Inspired by the classic briefcase shape, we began reimagining our expectations, from a design as much as a functional point of view. That is why the 48Hr Classic is everything you would expect from a premium, practical bag and much more. 

Your essentials are always easily accessible when you need them.
Your essentials are always easily accessible when you need them.

More often than not, we found that it’s better to be more elegant than your surroundings than the opposite. For example going to a business meeting with your gym bag will look more out of place than heading to the gym with your business messenger bag. 

With this practical aspect in mind we created an elegant, stylish design that makes you feel comfortable wherever your day takes you. 

Now there is no need to switch between your office and casual bag

With our 13 or 15’’ laptop becoming an indispensable part of our lives, we made sure that you can carry it around in a separate padded compartment protecting it from outer elements as well as from other interior objects which may scratch it.

 The all leather strap will turn the 48Hr Classic into a backpack for a comfortable commute on your bike or long walks when you want to free up your hands.

Whether it will be your work bag, camera bag or carry on bag, or all these things, the 48Hr Classic is up for the task!

We value the process of handcrafting the 48Hr Classic as much as the final good and believe that we sometimes own products without knowing and appreciating the time, effort and skill that has gone into making every detail. That is why we want to be as transparent as possible and show you all the different steps that go into making your very own 48Hr Classic.

Each bag starts its life from premium hides of leather that are picked individually by us. One handcrafting process at a time your bag starts to gain shape. Our artisans pay attention to every detail producing a rich, unique leather bag. When we say unique we really mean it because every 48Hr Classic is handmade so each is different to the one before, each is imperfectly perfect.

Because Quality Matters
Because Quality Matters

The 24 & 48Hr Classic Bags are made from premium Italian full grain leather chosen for it's aesthetics, fibre strength and durability. The grain also has breathability, resulting in less moisture from prolonged contact. Rather than wearing out, it develops a patina during its expected useful lifetime. We carefully choose each hide and opt to leave most natural small marks as we believe it adds to the character and beauty of the leather. 

Even more important than the design, the Temporary Forevers brand is about pledging towards something that makes you feel unique, makes you feel better for having a bag that you don’t see everywhere and if you ever do happen to come across someone with a 48Hr Classic Bag, we hope you will smile to them for having something different in common.
