Freedom is everything. It was the mantra of British adventurer Millican Dalton, who in the early 1900s left the hustle and bustle of London for a quieter, more adventurous life in the mountains of North West England’s Lake District. It’s also what inspired the co-founders of pack-maker Millican to create gear for those who seek the freedom, experience and human connection that travel has to offer.
Fueled by a youthful trek through South American and sparked by the story of Millican Dalton, Millican continues to make quality, sustainable packs for those looking to leave the crowded mess of civilization behind and strike out on their own. It’s line of rucksacks, overnight bags, shoulder and camera bags and more are made with community and environment at the forefront, with sustainably-sourced material and fair trade business practices that reduce its global footprint.
That extends right down to the designs themselves, crafted with a less-is-more mentality that its founders believe challenges people to be resourceful and live in the moment. After all, nothing is more freeing than taking only what you can carry into the next great adventure.
