Filson Duffle Bag


When you’re traveling — whether it be in the wilderness or the far more dangerous airport concourse — it’s nice to have several ways to get to your stuff. The Filson Duffle Backpack gives you exactly that. Built from rugged Cordura nylon for resistance to both water and abrasions, this versatile bag offers a drawstring top and a zippered front to give you ways to get to the main compartment, an integrated rain cover to keep things dry, dependable RIRI zippers, and removable shoulder straps that let you transition from backpack to regular bag.

Visvim Lamina 22L Picaro Rucksack

The latest piece from Hiroki Nakamura’s uber-label Visvim keeps up the brand’s ethic of focusing on craftsmanship, choice of materials and fine attention to detail. An update of ever popular Lamina Rucksack, the Picaro Series utilises ‘Konbu’ baked nylon; an extremely durable, lightweight material which will keep your belongings secure without feeling like you have the world on your back.  The innovatively treated, over-dyed Japanese nylon is one of a number of carefully considered materials used in the rucksack’s construction.

The Picaro features contrast denim panels at the base (light wash on beige and navy colourways, dark grey on black), which makes the bag more robust, as well as adding a flash of colour. The Lamina is finished with tonal baby cord nylon panels and shoulder straps to the rear of the bag, with Swiss RIRI zips and hand sewn cow hide zip pulls used throughout. In our opinion, this is a great piece of luggage and a perfect example of Visvim’s design. Available now from Visvim stockists.



YMC Autumn Winter 2011 Canvas Backpack

A really solid looking canvas backpack will release from the YMC Autumn Winter 2011 Collection. The heritage looking backpack has been a much re-interpreted piece in recent seasons. What we especially like about this one, is the size and the great combination of the orange canvas upper and dark brown leather details. HS



Bill Amberg Hunter Rucksack

Bill Amberg sees his new Hunter Rucksack (£355) as one of his best bag designs and we definitely have to agree with him. Careful thought was put into the design of the bag with details like suede lined straps to keep the bag from slipping and clothing-friendly cotton drill lining that covers the bag’s interior.

Norse Projects x Ally Capellino Fjell Rucksack

I’ve been looking for a rucksack for a while I’ve bought 3 in the last year and none have been up to scratch and ended up on eBay a couple of months after purchase. Anyhow I discovered Ally Capellino’s ‘Dean’ rucksack late year but I snoozed and everywhere sold out in my preferred colourway, even much begging at the Capellino showroom whilst in a buying appointment couldn’t produce me one. Every cloud has a silver lining and all that because this badboy is gonna be strapped to my back very soon…
Ally Capellino has teamed up with one of the hippest new brands out there at the moment , Norse Projects and produced the ‘Fjell’ wax cotton rucksack. The colourway of navy wax and  brown leather highlights work perfectly. But the sale clincher for me is something thats always missing in rucksacks as a posed to backpacks is a padded laptop pocket to protect my beloved MacBook Pro. All in all a beautifully finished rucksack. Buy HERE
