Proving yet again that you really can do anything with a giant Russian-made sewing machine, TB's a made-to-order coterie of adventure-ready, high-performance backpacks and messengers that're cleverly crafted from salvaged/ rescued materials and hyperbolically described as "super awesome".
Ditch your monogrammed L.L. Bean for the super awesome:
Crafted out of heavy-duty burnt orange/olive 1000D Cordura, this 1792-cubic-incher boasts a "spacious cargo area", interior laptop sleeve, closed cell foam back, and possibly record-setting six compression straps to help "reduce load distortion", which sounds a lot grosser when you put it in quotes like that.
LE Navajo Print Messenger
Prove everyone who thinks your fave American Indian tribe is the, ugh, Incas wrong by toting around your collection of antique arrowheads/ clay pottery in this camel-colored cordura messenger that rocks a festive teal Navajo pattern, two under-the-flap pockets, and a detachable cell phone holster mounted to the chest strap.
This rucksack pimps a wide mouth for easy loading, multiple exterior pockets, two straps specifically designed to hold a skateboard, and is billed as the "Steven Seagal" of the collection because, like that giant Russian sewing machine, it
is not afraid to hurt you can handle nearly any (bed)roll, no matter how big.
