Epperson Mountaineering Climb Pack / $180
Inspired by the bags rock climbers use to carry their ropes, Epperson Mountaineering's Climb Pack is rugged enough for actual climbs but convenient enough for everyday use. It's crafted in the USA from DWR-coated 1000 denier Cordura nylon fabric, with military-grade nylon webbing and bar-tack reinforcement at stress points for added longevity. There are two external side snap pockets, an external zip pocket on the lid, and a laptop sleeve on the inside. A climbing-spec carabiner closure keeps things secure while offering quick access to the interior, and large front webbing loops let you easily attach other accessories.
