Misc Adventures x Millican Blank Canvas Rucksack

Our blank canvas conversation with Millican started over a year ago during the Keswick Mountain Festival. A few months later, we returned to the Lake District and Millican HQ for a weekend of campfires, cave exploration and hiking to help inspire us to develop a bag that best represented what we do here at Miscellaneous Adventures - the results of which we can finally share with you today.
