Of all the new brands to pop-up in the last year, Colorado’s Topo Designs is definitely one of the most impressive. Mixing modern, durable materials with an appreciation for the outdoor gear of their youth, the co.’s founders have designed a range of bags that are as tough as they are classic. The Daypack is made in a LEED certified facility in CO from heavy-duty, 1000d Cordura nylon. Fully lined with waterproof pack cloth, and bursting with features (natural leather tabs, all-metal mil-spec hardware, seatbelt webbing reinforced straps, inner organizer pocket), the bag is an attractive and dependable hauler, ready to take you wherever you take it (see what I did there?). Five colorways are available, and the cost, considering that it’ll last you the rest of your life, is damned reasonable.
