A Forestbound Original
We met Alice Saunders, founder of Forestbound, at one of our earliest Boston Marathon pop-ups. Together we dreamed up the design for this sturdy and durable water-repellent canvas tote bag for runners. Handcrafted with leather straps and bottom and two thoughtfully placed pockets, this is a tote that will only get better with age.
Built from a heavyweight water-repellant canvas and finished with a premium leather bottom and straps, the Tracksmith Tote is designed to last a lifetime and age beautifully along the way.
At nearly 38L, this tote has some serious carrying capacity. There’s space and a place for everything a runner needs on-the-go. Featuring an internal pocket that can fit up to a 15” laptop and a smaller external pocket that can fit a wallet or phone.
Developing this tote with Alice Saunders from Forestbound allowed us to work with one of our favorite local New England artisans. Designed in Massachusetts and made in the USA, this bag is local through and through.

Genuine Leather Bottom & Straps
Built to Last
Designed for versatility, this tote is durable enough to withstand the abuse of the daily commute and big enough to handle a full weekend’s worth of gear. Measuring 22” wide and 14” tall, with an interior pocket to fit a 15” laptop and an exterior pocket for smaller items there is space and a place for everything. As Alice describes it, this is “a timeless, no-fuss bag that will age beautifully."
Alice Saunders started Forestbound in 2007 and operates a small studio in Amesbury, Massachusetts–near one of our favorite roads to run on Plum Island. There you can find her designing, cutting and sewing her bags and carryalls from salvaged textiles as well as creating a selection of home goods. A dedicated runner, when she’s not in the studio, Alice scours the Northeast for unique and storied textiles that she thoughtfully re-works into something new, beautiful and yet fully utilitarian. In her passion for craftsmanship and quality, Alice embodies the spirit upon which Tracksmith was founded. We sat down with her a while ago to discuss her process and approach to running.
