I’ve probably received one out of the first batches of this backpack issued and have to admit I bought it on a whim for its gorgeous looks. It is an ingenious interpretation of a classic leather and canvas backpack design, with many clever improvements (the magnets are no gimmick!). The craftsmanship is impeccable – every stitch proper, no loose thread anywhere. By contrast the leather on the sewn-in carrying straps is comparably thin. Making them user replaceable would be a smart move to future-proofing the Rucksack. The soft padding on the other hand is much appreciated.
The artificial and highly unhealthy smell upon arrival was awful and I was close to sending it back. However it wore off completely after about a week with good airing.
I liked smart details such as the zippered bellow-bags to the side – flip and access – or the magnetic keyholder. Moreover the material used (aluminium, major leather parts and cotton straps, fibre-body) is both sturdy and haptically satisfying.
I’m totally a fan of the triple access-securing of the content. Solid zipper, double-button straps and leather straps with magnetic closure. The magnets are no gimmick and enough to hold the flap secure in trustworthy environment.
The sheer volume is amazing. The main compartment fits a 16'' MacBook and a 12.9’’ iPad together with over-ear headphones and a full-frame DSLM with an attached 2.8 standard zoom lens in an extra pouch. It took me some time to figure out how to best use the front pouch. It fits a longish USB-hub well and keeps the interior uncluttered. Fully loaded with gear it is still amazingly comfortable to carry.
Overall I am most pleased with the purchase.
GOOD design and usability
