I have a black and grey version of pic related it's super high quality and pretty durable, but holy fuck it's small. I have to jam all my books and shit in there making it super tight
Is Herschel good or will it make me look like a high school student?
Thinking about Poler rambler pack
i have a fjallraven kanken also. i have the 15in laptop bag which is nice cause the straps are padded plus the laptop compartment, i got it in black and it shows dirt easily but besides that i love it.
just copped the following for $225....definitely paid too much considering it's just a tote but my boner for ACR never subsides
now I just have to figure out how to pull this off as a guy
step 1, dont be fat or ugly
step 2, dress in basic shit with clean color palettes
step 3, get discriminated for carrying a bag as a man and have police and security check your bag while women walk in with c4 in their hajabs and 50 lb purses.
Can anyone help me find a bag like this Versace one on Grailed. Really don't feel like paying $135.
Really just looking for that long / baggy silhouette with a resilient fabric like pic related
copped a few days ago, is it effay enough for u guys
Should I un stitch the "Jansport" patch on this bag and just leave it was a plain black bag?
w2c simple purple backpack for >$150 that would be suitable for a 50 year old woman. I'm thinking very minimalist but with some sort of interesting detail like a weird shape or zips. Want to get a birthday present for my mum.
worth copping? 70% polyester 30% cotton
50 euro on sale
can't see a thing, but it looks all fabric and cheap. should have gone for pic rel.
people asking for examples of difference in quality of materials, take a look at >>9700055
At first glance you can see a big difference in the quality of the zipper pulls and the handle and bottom material. See how the thin plastic herschel handle creases and folds where the leather eastpack is stiff.
Now look where the fabric meets the bottom. The herschel is thin enough to be folded over (to conceal the material) and the seam is exposed. You can also almost see them on the bottom corners. On the east pack, the leather is so thick the seams are buried deep in a crease. That's some thick leather.

Can anyone tell me what this box shaped type of bag pack is called please
If you don't have at least one base camp duffel then you don't have shit
any of you got experience with the fjallraven 21 medium? Heard it's kinda small and the large looks too big (I'm 5"10).
Would it be suitable for using as hand luggage on a weekend in Paris? Or should I look for something bigger?
Quality of these are shite nowadays. This was originally made in Sweden and the goto backpack for all Swedish kids ages 3-18. I use one my older brother got as a 6 yo in freakin 1989, it will last a century. Today they are made in fing China like everything else and I give them 5 years max. On top of this it has become an unbearable hipster fashion item.
Fjallravens are incredibly basic and ugly bags. I cringe whenever I see someone with one. Granted, it's mostly tumblr girls who don't know how to dress themselves, but when a guy has one it's embarrassing
Is there a reasonably priced alternative to the Visvim E-Cat 18L? Just a messenger bag in this kind of style
and by reasonably priced I mean under $200
just got an incase cargo from Gilt, was at around 50 bucks. Pretty good pack. Nice padding and 2 handy pockets on the outside plus the net.
Dude I was looking at them 12h ago. So I'll have to ask you a question. I've checked their site and the size seems enormous.
Are they? Will they look ok on someone sorter than average? How do they compare to say Eastpack on that?
So my friend is looking for a messenger bag and told me if he cant find a better on than this hes gunna cop it. I told him it looks feminine and the belt really doesnt fit but hes hung up on the "its a herschel so its cool" thing. can i get some recs on better looking messenger bags?
you're in luck in on sale for 25$
not very big but build like a tank; simplest construction possible: unpadded safety belt shoulder straps, quality nylon fabric, super thick leather bottom. It also has a laptop compartment & mesh zipper pocket.
no blue though only black or red
>image search is integrated
when did this happen
Copped this 4 weeks ago, needed a durable duffle to carry my gym gear, uni notes and work uniform as I work security for Selfridges
Fucker is built like a tank
Anyone have any thoughts/reviews on this bag?
Only thing that can fit my shit and stay under 100.
Found this at a thrift store recently. Near as I can tell it was originally a ski boot bag. There's one main compartment, a thin zippered pocket on the outside that covers the whole front, and a side pocket that fits a nalgene pretty well. The straps are just basic seatbelt nylon, doe
Maybe if you're a professional delivery man.
Burton metal head backpack. This pack lasted me all of high school and many adventures. Very Reliable and comftorable pack
I'm thinking about getting a 15" ochre kanken for everyday use and photography, the only thing stopping me is this question:
is it really hipster or gay-tier garbage? I've only seen one irl and it was used by a totally white dressed gay boy. I'm not really concerned by the fact that he was gay, but god every pic on the internet shows them on the back of girls or effeminate asian boys except pic related
New bag to replace the one that got stolen
I need to carry a couple of devices (2-3 phones and 2-3 tablets) for my job but backpacks are too childish, is this worth coping instead?
So I've been looking for a minimal black bag, with net bottle holder and laptop sleeve, and the best I've found is the jansport digital student after unsewing the patches. I just don't know about the shape of the bag and shoulder straps. Opinions?
I rock a slate one myself, got off CL here in Portland, OR. I don't really hipster, it just makes a perfect size for my work bag for laptop/tools/random things. If you are really self conscious about it's childlike ways, just keep the backpack straps in tight and use it as a carry bag with the handle - problem solved.
I need a basic backpack for going to and from work. Nothing crazy. Would be nice if it could withstand rain, but not necessary because I'll probably use my umbrella and really only have to walk from the parking lot to the entrance. Rugged look would be cool, but again, not completely necessary. Decent pockets for storage would be nice, I usually take all my hygiene stuff (deodorant, Cologne, chap stick, etc.) with me, and usually also shove my lunch in there. Would like to be able to shove books in without it bulging too much. Thanks for any help, love you.
What does /fa/ think about Topo Designs? (pic related)
It's called a lash tab. Traditionally they were used as a utilitarian thing, to attach something like equipment and knife sheaths to kayaking bags by connecting them to a bit of webbing.
Notice how this bag has a loop at the bottom? It can also be used to fasten equipment to the outside.
Today most of the sporty ones are made of more durable, weatherproof materials than leather and constructed a bit differently, using built-in webbing and elastic to hold items in place.
On one of my old backpacks, I threaded my shoelaces through a lashtag for going to the gym but it wasn't terribly convenient and felt silly. I think most are not meant to be very functional but could probably hold a carabiner or so.
You can usually seam rip them off of a Herschel or Jansport bag pretty easily.
