Nixon Waterlock III
Size: 28L / 43 x 38 x 17cm
Multi-purose is the name of the Waterlock III’s game, and while it doesn’t feature specific waterproof spec, it makes up for it by having pretty much everything else under the sun. Padded side entry laptop compartment, two side zipper pockets, small media port pocket and sunglass pocket lined with micro suede, zippered watch pocket, adjustable skate straps, PU coated front and bottom and a wetsuit changing mat all feature in this smart backpack that features the attention to detail you’d expect from Nixon.
Rip Curl F-Light 40
“Comfort is at a premium whether you’re searching the back end of beyond, or simply just day tripping your local”
Material: 450D ripstop
Rip Curl have gone next level with the F-Light 40, packing in a bunch of surf specific features to help organise a multitude of shred paraphernalia. Not only does she pack a sizey roll trop wet-dry compartment, surf specific pockets store fins, sunblock, wax (they’re all labelled just in case) as well as a large insulated side pocket to keep food and drink cold. Your laptop and tablet have padded storage, there’s even a cable organiser. With all the tech and spec you’d expect in the shoulder straps and padding, comfort is at a premium whether you’re searching the back end of beyond, or simply just day tripping your local.
Picture Organic Clothing Lunaire
Materials: Eco PVC
Picture have come with a completely different vibe for the Lunaire backpack, shunning claimed multi-functionality for admirable what-it-says-on-the-tin style objectives. The Lunaire is 100% waterproof, for lugging wet gear, and keeping yourself dry, and that’s all, and that’s it. Featuring a simple yet sophisticated design with a single main roll top compartment and small front pocket, the Lunaire believes wet wetsuits and MacBook Airs are not happy bedfellows, and never the twain shall meet… a logic that’s kinda hard to refute. The Lunaire will take care of your soaking wet gear in comfort and style, but will probably not help you do your homework. And it’s not sorry about that.
Poler outdoor Stuff Classic Rolltop
“Back to basics, with a lil’ bit of Moonrise Kingdom boy scout styling chic”
Materials: Heavy Duty Campdura fabric
28L / 27″ x 16″ x 4″
They don’t come much simpler than the Classic Rolltop from Poler. Rather than bamboozle you with a load of features, this one’s all about back to basics, with a lil’ bit of Moonrise Kingdom boy scout styling chic. It’s got one wee zip pocket on the front, one main rolltop compartment with a basic laptop pouch, two straps for your shoulder, and that’s about it. If you’re looking for a surf pack that won’t have you going through endless secret flaps and folds looking for your flick knife, and this potentially missing low tide in the process, this’n could be for you. It’s analog backpack vibes, in a crazy mixed up digital world, baby.
