Background

My design challenge was to create a slim, sleek, functional and stylized backpack that caters towards the urban, nomadic lifestyle of city dwellers. 

Outcome

The backpack features a canvas and spacer mesh main compartment, engraved "Sawa" and "Guchi" Japanese leather patches, wool felt padded straps, an integrated padded laptop sleeve, adjustable front pocket cargo straps, and military-grade Mil-Spec Monkey hardware.
