The Bolt Backpack from Waterfield Designs is a damn classy bag. If I was playing the “raise money” game in the bay area, this is the direction I would go.
The bag is a treat to use. Plenty of pockets, sure, but it’s the quality of materials that really spoke to me. (Btw, there are plenty of pockets. One of my favorite pocket configurations of all time!)
Handmade, gorgeous, utterly functional… this thing doesn’t cut corners, won’t stress you out or leave you high and dry. It’s a phenomenal bag and one of the reasons why I love reviewing bags.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The GoRuck GR1 is one of those bags I have loved since the first moment I saw one online years ago. The look of this bag is simple, understated, but powerful.
The Everyday backpack from Peak Designs is so thoughtfully designed and innovative that it deserves to be in a damn museum!
The Day Pack from Aer's Work Collection was instantly one of my favorite simple daily carry bags because it's minimal frame but high-functioning insides.
The Velo backpack from Rickshaw Bags is an awesome, simple bag that comes in a few different sizes.
The Aer Flight Pack is a dope little daily carry backpack. It has a kind of slick look to the design (though it also has a kind of "turtle shell" vibe).
