Celebrate the heritage

When George Vanderbilt began planning his grand estate, The Biltmore, in Asheville, North Carolina, his vision was twofold. First, he wanted to create a place where he could relax and entertain friends and family. Just as important, however, was his desire to preserve the surrounding beauty. He envisioned a self-sustaining home that would steward the land and its resources for years to come. From this vision came the nation’s first planned forestry program and the beginning of a family focus on the environment.

Diamond Brand Gear shares this mission of environmental stewardship and preserving heritage. Little details throughout the overnighter are in celebration of the past. Pulling inspiration from Biltmore saddles and stitching in their equestrian legacy, we constructed this bag to reflect that sense of adventure and connection to the preservation of the land. You are owning a piece of history.

Biltmore Renaissance Explorer Interior

Store Smart

This bag is designed to carry everything you need, just how you want it. Multiple interior storage points, including a mesh zipper pocket for toiletries, jewelry or small carries, coupled with interior straps to secure folded clothes in place, begs for you to bring along enough items for an extended adventure. A back zipper reveals a laptop compartment, padded and offset from the bottom for security. Additional storage components for office supplies and a spacial elastic expander with mesh for full access, gives this bag robust carrying opportunity.  Exterior hidden pockets allow secure and easy access for those quick grab items, while the bag remains sleek.

Materials Matter

Crafted with luxury and durability as top priorities. Accent artisan fabric from local mill, Oriole, is reinforced and partnered with durable water resistant 18 oz canvas. A high-end look and feel with the durability to make this an heirloom for generations. 6 oz domestically sourced leather acts as reinforcement and adds that extra detail of sophistication. Fully lined polyester interior with YKK zippers and brushed nickel hardware elevates the Biltmore Explorer to a high-end carry all.
