5 Rucksacks

Long taking a backseat to totes, sleeves, messengers and briefcases, the vintage styled rucksack is enjoying a renaissance among style conscious men. Always a practical choice for the outdoors now they are as often seen with a suit as ripped flannel. Which makes sense considering how great these canvas bags with their leather trim look. Now if only I could find one without those annoying roll pin buckles.

  1. Rucksack, the old made new. the power of non specific compartment that adapt to whatever you decide to put in it.
    Those bags always bring an emotional response due to the mountain connection and the old school language of the shape and materials. Good to see them coming back
    Something carryology.com would talk greatly about. Check them out if you like that kind of subject.
    Or missionworkshop.com, modern feel with a old school rucksack touch.
