My desire for a new backpack is growing on a daily basis - obviously it's time to invest. I've narrowed it down to five of my favourites, mostly based on a colour that will coordinate easily and aesthetics that are both practical and smart.
I can't resist a strong olive green colour and this utility pack by Inventory has it spot on. A friend ordered this from the Canadian mens brand last month and seeing it in person really makes the difference. It's built to last.
I've been a fan of Ally Capellino for about a year, since seeing her samples at Capsule in Paris during fashion week. The chocolate brown colour is rare as is the mix of canvas/cotton/leather.
Possibly the least practical of them all due to the double buckle fold-over top. It's also one of my favourite styles as it's made with a waxed cotton that has been washed & weathered perfectly.
I tend to be drawn to minimal designs and many of the other bags have just a few more pockets or ties than I would prefer. I don't love the colour, but I do love the singular fastening. Simple and chic.
Filson is all about authenticity, durability and practicality. I can't argue with that and think the size and shape would be perfect for my camera equipment.
