Bellroy Classic Backpack

We’ve featured Bellroy a fair few times now on the pages of The Coolector and we’re always interested when they’ve got new wares on the market and this was particularly true when they made the announcement recently that they were moving into the world of bags as a departure from their stock and trade of phone covers, wallets and other bits of EDC. And, it’s safe to say, their launch line up doesn’t disappoint – as is typified by this minimalist and exceptionality crafted Bellroy Classic Backpack.

The Bellroy Classic Backpack is one of the cornerstone of the brand’s new venture into the bag market and, given our love for this nature of carry, we gravitated towards it here at Coolector HQ. This supremely stylish and functional offering from the always excellent Bellroy signals good things so far as their foray into bags is concerned and for any man on the hunt for a cool, understated new backpack this autumn, look no further.

Built For The Urban Adventurer

Commuting is part of day to day life for most people and having a backpack which you can rely on is a must. We are well aware of the tangible quality of the products from Bellroy and this has been continued on into their brand new bag creations and particularly so with this brilliantly designed and crafted Bellroy Classic Backpack. Measuring 490 x 370 x 70 mm with a 17L storage capacity and space for a 15″ laptop, you’ll be amazed with just how much you’re able to get into this backpack despite its slim looking profile ostensibly.

Made from sustainably produced fabric, which are chosen for their durability and lightweight performance, and premium leather hides tanned under gold-rated Leather Working Group environmental protocols which are then dyed through so they age gracefully, the aesthetics of this Bellroy Classic Backpack are certainly second to none. It is a contemporary take on a instantly recognisable style of carry and this offering from Bellroy is value-packed with great design detail and a impressive level of functionality and versatility.

Carefully engined for comfort, the shape of the Bellroy Classic Backpack’s back panel and shoulder straps have been specifically designed for enhanced comfort and support. Even when it is fully packed, the contours of the backpack sit close to your body and essentially ‘hugs’ your back so as not to be uncomfortable when carried for extended periods of time. It is a highly organised carry and has plenty of internal storage spaces for all your devices, clothing, snacks and personal items, while an external access pocket is the ideal spot for your EDC such as phone, keys and wallet.

Technological Considerations

As it is crafted for the urban adventurer, technology has played a key part in the thinking behind the design of the Bellroy Classic Backpack and it has the protective laptop sleeve which is capable of accommodating a device up to 15″. This is an important part of any backpack today as most of us will need to carry this sort of equipment on the go and making sure it is protected is a must and you’ll get that peace of mind with this cracking backpack from Bellroy.

So, it’s safe to say, Bellroy’s first stab at bags and backpacks is a most impressive one indeed and we’re loving both the aesthetics and functionality on offer with the Classic Backpack. Available in a number of different colourways to suit your personal preferences, you’ll be hard pressed to find a cooler, more versatile carry than this out there.
