We’re mighty serious about our accessories here at Coolector HQ and always derive great pleasure from stumbling across new brands that are forging their own path in the world of bags and their associated accessories. The latest (and possibly greatest) brand to come into our purview is that of Troubadour and their, frankly rather excellent, line up of bags and accessories. They’ve got something for every modern man whether you’re heading to the boardroom or a wilderness walk and the quality of their wares truly is tangible.
Troubadour sprung into life as a result of a simple premise – namely, wanting to create the perfect bag. The men behind Troubadour, Samuel and Abel, are two colleagues who became friends after bonding over their deep love of endurance sports, clean lines and unparalleled attention to detail.
They searched high and low for the perfect overnight bag. Something refined enough for business, rugged enough for the great outdoors, and casually smart enough for weekends with friends. They couldn’t find it, so they made it. And they’ve been going from strength to strength ever since.
Check out our pick of 5 of the best bags and accessories from Troubadour below:
Explorer Off-Piste Backpack
A real best-seller for Troubadour and it’s not hard to see why, the Off-Piste Backpack really is the ultimate all-rounder and will deliver a highly functional performance wherever your adventures may take you. This classy looking accessory from Troubadour is crafted from a lightweight waterproof fabric, lining and zippers designed to keep your gear safe and dry.
It boasts an angled opening for easy access and it is perfect for the tech inclined individual courtesy of its added section for 16-inch laptop. The zipped external pocket is ideally suited to your EDC essentials and comes with a mighty useful, retractable bottle holder.
Adventure Pathfinder Slim Briefcase
Sleek, stylish and devilishly dapper, the Adventure Pathfinder Slim Briefcase will tackle the boardroom and the campsite effortlessly and, regardless of where you’re using it, it’s not going to let you down courtesy of the first class craftsmanship and top notch materials throughout.

The detachable non-slip shoulder strap of the Adventure Pathfinder Slim Briefcase provides a comfy hands-free carrying experience and this makes it a versatile performer that works around your lifestyle. This classy looking accessory has a trolley sleeve which easily slides over luggage handles and creates an extra pocket when it is zipped up.

Available in a number of different colourways, the Troubadour Explorer Apex Backpack is ideally suited for your commute, gym kit and day trips with storage space aplenty. This robust, stylish accessory is right up our street here at Coolector HQ and it is also available in a compact version if you’re after something a touch more streamlined for your day to day adventures.
We’re big fans of the sleek lines and clear attention to detail that has gone into the design of the Explorer Apex Backpack and if they’re design features you value, this one is surely a prime candidate to be your next accessory addition this autumn. Once again it has a padded section for a 16-inch laptop and the breathable back panel and ergonomic padded shoulder straps are designed for an all-day comfort.
Adventure is in the blood for Troubadour’s Basecamp Backpack and it is certainly one of our favourites here at The Coolector. It is a bold, uncompromising backpack that has been purpose built for being put through its paces. It is a spacious rolltop in waterproof fabric with a highly versatile magnetic closure that makes access a cinch. There are an array of external pockets for enhanced organisation and EDC storage and it also has a trolley sleeve that fits in neatly with your luggage when travelling.
There is a great, understated aesthetic to this backpack and we’re impressed with how much versatility Troubadour have managed to pack into the Basecamp Backpack for such an affordable price point.

Adventure Troubadour Weekender Bag
A weekender bag is an accessory staple in our opinion here at The Coolector and they don’t come much more accomplished than this Adventure Troubadour Weekender Bag which is the perfect lightweight travel bag and goes from business to casual, instantly. It is crafted from a premium lightweight and waterproof fabric that gives it a tangible sense of quality to the touch and the sort of rough and ready performance that is suited to weekend breaks away.
The super-comfy handles of the Adventure Troubadour Weekender Bag come in Italian vegetable-tanned leather and add a touch of refinement to proceedings that it’s hard not to appreciate with this already excellent bag. It comes with a detachable non-slip shoulder strap which allows for comfy hands-free carrying through the airport or through the urban jungle.
