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:
An extremely versatile and feature rich bag that doesn't look half bad, the Errant has lots of organization in an innovative pack for everyday use. One of my favorites.
The Everyday backpack from Peak Design is delightfully innovative and thoughtfully conceived. It's definitely a design for the centuries.
This is what I call the "badass bargain option." Everything you need in a daily carry, organized innovatively so it stays fun to use, and it's super affordable.
The Guide Pack from Tom Bihn is a bag geek's boner pill. It's classic design and exceedingly excellent manufacturing make it more like an heirloom than a bag. But this bag also performs great as a travel bag!
A truly worthy daily carry bag with simple and useful innovations and rock-solid build-quality. I. Love. This. Bag.
