Trakke Bannoch Backpack Review

A gorgeous bag with a kind of modern urban-alpine aesthetic and absolutely lovely, dense, long-haul materials.

  • Materials on this bag are excellent. I love how they bound the edges of the straps and flaps with waxed cotton… nice touch.
  • The metal latches will take some getting used to, but they’ll last a million years… I use them all the time on one of my bags and, while it’s definitely some cognitive load, I also respect the bag enough that it feels kind of like a nice moment in my day.
  • I like the two tall pockets on the front of the bag. Nice organization.
  • Lots of space for daily carry, but not the biggest bag out there. This is made to be stylish and useful, not massive and spacious.
  • Laptop pocket with a little bit of organization on a panel round out the inside of the bag.
