1000 denier Cordura nylon, high visibility coated pack cloth lining, heavy duty hardware and zippers, seatbelt webbing reinforced shoulder straps, internal organization pouches and laptop sleeve… Sound like a new tactical pack? It does, but it isn’t. Those are all features of the Topo Designs Daypack.
I am always on the lookout for EDC bags that don’t look so “tactical” but that offer the durable and functional materials that I have come to appreciate from a typical tactical pack. We all have stuff that we carry every day but no one wants to look like they just got dragged through a military surplus store. The Topo Designs Daypack would be at home on the trail, at the office, or around town and all without drawing any undue mall ninja attention.
Topo Designs manufactures bags that have outdoor adventure ready durability and discreet, retro design sensibility. They make all of their bags, including the Daypack, in their LEED certified building in Colorado and still manage to offer them at very reasonable prices. Check them out at TopoDesigns.com.
