Despite the name, it's not some new collaboration between the legendary khaki purveyors and J.K. Rowling. Instead, the Eddie Bauer First Ascent Sorcerer Pack just feels like magic thanks to its unique blend of strength, weather resistance, and weight — or lack thereof. Made from CTF³ monofilament fiber using welded construction methods, this pack effortlessly expands to hold between 40 and 55 literes of goods, with Delrin compression rails to help balance the loads and a removable BFF framesheet that can serve as an emergency bivy pad, all while weighing just a hair over 3 lbs.
You probably already have several bags you use for various purposes — one for hauling all your gear to work, one for tackling the outdoors on the weekends, and another for when you're on the road. With the Ember Backpack, you get one bag for all of your needs. Its modular design lets you customize it depending on what your day has in store, adding on a laptop sleeve, hard pouches, military pouches, a phone case, utility straps, a handle, and more. Components attach using strong magnetic snaps, while pouches feature fleece lining to protect your gadgets, and waterproof nylon and leather construction keeps everything dry.
When you're traveling — whether it be in the wilderness or the far more dangerous airport concourse — it's nice to have several ways to get to your stuff. The Filson Duffle Backpack gives you exactly that. Built from rugged Cordura nylon for resistance to both water and abrasions, this versatile bag offers a drawstring top and a zippered front to give you ways to get to the main compartment, an integrated rain cover to keep things dry, dependable RIRI zippers, and removable shoulder straps that let you transition from backpack to regular bag.
