A Pretty Ditty


The Windjammer Elite sea bag from Morris & Barth Ship Canvas has an oil-tanned leather bottom, a matching leather center band and heavy-duty canvas construction. 

The double-spliced carry strap is made of three-strand rigging rope with a solid copper slider and a monkey’s fist at its center. 

The strap also has a traditional snap shackle and hand-sewn leather grip, and it’s finished with a Turk’s head. 

The bag is available in 2.6- and 5.4-gallon sizes. $479. (A 9.8- gallon bag is available for a $20 upcharge.)
