Made in America. Sustainably built. Impeccably designed. These turns of phrases are often taken for granted, but lately, with companies like Topo Designs, these terms are seeing a revival of true meaning. Locally sourced and produced in small batches to ensure quality, this Daypack from Topo is almost certainly what you’ve been looking for in a bag. To start, all of their gear is made by hand, in the States, and in a LEED certified building near the Rockies. It’s built of Cordura from a Connecticut mill and the YKK zippers are sourced locally while the leather is – you guessed it – produced nearby. While the cut is certainly classic, drawing both from old school military styling, but with just the right touch of clean, modern lines, it packs all the modern conveniences – namely padding and weather-proofing – you expect. You have your choice of seven colorways, each with some contrast with the zipper pulls and leather patches – with the notable exclusion of the desert camo which stands out enough on its own – they have a pretty uniform canvas. Inside, there’s plenty of space to carry all your goods securely with a mix of pockets joining the larger open compartment, all lined with 1000d CORDURA nylon. Ready to hold all your need, comfortable, and stylish and durable; what else could you ask for? Find them now at Topo Designs.
