I've personally been on the hunt for a good backpack for a little while now, so I was particularly excited to check out the BLK Pine Slope Day Pack when our shipment arrived last week. The bag is constructed out of American sourced 18 oz. duck canvas and 1000 denier nylon and put together by hand in Seattle, WA. The thing that separates this bag from other backpacks for me is the slimmed down shape. At 14" x 18" x 4" this Day Pack is big enough to house a laptop (up to 16"), some reading material, a beverage or two and a few extra layers, without making it look like you are hitting the trail for a week. We also have the bag available in Red which looks great, but for me the Navy is the more versatile option. Either option should age wonderfully as the Natural Canvas and Leather accents break in and darken up a bit.
The BLK Pine Slope Day Pack is available now in Red and Blue via phone or email order for $150 (CAD).
