The Cleave Knapsack is our neatly styled two tone 16oz Canvas Day Bag. Dry waxed to allow for a superior water repellent finish. Doubled up with a 100% cotton, Base cloth liner. With the liner being equally as repellent as the exterior this neat little day bag will be sure to keep all gear dry on your commute or day out. We use the very best Organic Dry Waxed Cotton from British Millerain for our Knapsacks. Also making it completely machine washable at 30 degrees.
Built with the timeless style of the surf and street culture this day bag is the perfect handmade alternative to the norm. Built in Bude, North Cornwall we have made the Cleave as part of our Lifetime Gear range. It therefore comes with 18 months free repair* as standard.
Sized around 25L and with the following dimensions (64 cm at max open) 50cm High x 40 cm Wide and 15 cm Deep. We offer a more stripped back version of the Cleave, The Strand. It’s the little brother, with a little less size and features…check it out here.

INCREDIBLE piece of kit. Pockets in the Perfect places and so much precision and love put into the bag. The inside pockets are perfect so you don’t loose stuff in the man bag and after spilling a drink in it I can confirm it’s fully waterproof! Thanks Rooted Ocean!!
I bought a custom Cleave in black and camo roll top, it looks amazing, great quality! Had it out in the rain several times and it’s beaded straight off, very impressed! Would happily recommend Rooted Ocean to anyone!!
I totally love my Cleave knapsack, currently using it as a laptop bag and able to fit so much more in it too. Brilliantly designed and crafted, you just have to show it off to everyone. Thanks Rooted Ocean.
I’ve had my Cleave backpack for about 6 months now and use it almost everyday. It’s really well made and incredibly durable.
Awesome bag! Used daily and never let me down. The guys listened to what I wanted and made a few rad custom tweaks for swim fins and things! Super quality!

Finally received my Cleave knapsack (royal mail’s fault not the Rooted guys!). First impressions, very happy, just what i was looking for, a basic, uncomplicated backpack, functional, easy on the eye and solid construction. No zips, no plastic, no bother. And the bonuses! You guys really need to work on your advertising, not mentioned in the blurb (that i could see?), three internal pockets!! Padded laptop sleeve and small and large stash holes, top marks again!
