A wanderer doesn’t need to live in Middle Earth to appreciate durability. 18 oz waxed canvas is tough; it earned the name “Tin Cloth” and its protection holds up through the ages. A full-sized laptop slips neatly into the main compartment. The outside zippered compartment offers dividers, and the inside zip pocket is ready to protect electronics, kindling, or whatever treasures you need to keep high and dry. The design is modern, but the materials remain unchanged -- tough canvas, robust leather, and solid brass. Reliable packs made in the U.S.A. at Frost River. Leather from Red Wing, Minnesota adorns the front, wide web shoulder straps and a grab handle remain at the back.
