Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack

When you need a carry that is built for adventure, Mission Workshop would definitely be one of our first ports of call here at Coolector HQ and, as if to reinforce this fact, they’ve just released the rather excellent looking Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack. This exemplary carry doesn’t just look the part, it also offers the abundant amount of storage and resilience that you’ll demand from a day-to-day commuter carry.

The Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack has a retail price of $445 which, on the face of it, might sound like a lot for a backpack but when you dig deeper into what it actually offers and the materials used in its crafting, it becomes much more understandable. This cracking carry from one of our favourite American lifestyle brands here at The Coolector ticks all our performance boxes and if you’re after a top of the range carry in 2019, look no further than this.

Magnificent Materials, First Class Performance

San Francisco based Mission Workshop have become synonymous with quality over the years – for both their apparel and their accessories – and this Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack is them at the top of their game. It is built to hold everything you need for work, play, and the occasional overnight trip or weekend breaks. This includes dedicated pockets for your laptop, iPad, chargers, water bottle and large roll-top compartment for food, clothing, and gear so, whatever the adventure or occasion, this backpack from Mission Workshop has more than got you covered.

The Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack ($445) takes the original Rhake design and well and truly cranks it up to the next level by incorporating VX-21 diamond ripstop fabric which significantly enhances the robustness and adventure ready nature of this backpack. VX-21 is one of the most advanced textiles in the world and it has virtually unparalleled abrasion, tear, and weather resistance per gram weight and that’s why this is the backpack that will be accompanying you on your journeys for many years to come.

Top class features and materials abound with the Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack and one of the stand out ones includes the Fidlock® magnetic buckles which allow for one-handed operation, which increases convenience while maintaining strength of the carry. The stealthy looking aesthetics of this backpack are another reason we’re loving it here at Coolector HQ and it’s easy to see why these are already proving one of Mission Workshop’s most popular accessories of 2019.

Adventure Ready

You’ll find everything you need and more with the Mission Workshop Rhake: VX Weatherproof Laptop Backpack which has an internal volume of some 22L which is more than enough to meet most storage requirements. It has a dedicated padded pocket fits all 15-inch and most 17-inch laptops, a large 22-liter roll-top main compartment can grow or shrink as needed to fit extra clothes and gear and two zippered organisational pockets with interior zippered mesh compartments for small accessories, notebook, business cards and your day to day EDC.

This is another excellent example of the design and craftsmanship capabilities of Mission Workshop and for anyone in the market for a new backpack over the next 12 months, you’re definitely going to struggle to find one with more strings to its bow than this. Great design meets uncompromising materials to deliver one of the most versatile and adventure ready backpacks on the market and we’ll certainly be looking to get our hands on one here at The Coolector.
