WaterField has long been one of my favorite bag companies. They make a range of innovative bags and accessories out of interesting materials and they make them right here in the USA.
Strangely, with all the messenger style goodness they have distributed to the world, they have never made a backpack. Sometimes you just gotta have a backpack.
Now…they do. The Staad Backpack is a sexy, throwback looking backpack that is available in two sizes and six different color combination.
Ballistic nylon or waxed canvas gets accented with your choice of three types of leather and the whole thing is sealed with a vintage WWII style buckle.
The inside has places for your technology and is all finished off in WaterField’s trademark high contrast gold fabric. As is typical they have some clever organizational touches to make it easy to get at what you want, when you want.
