Stash and carry
That gym-signup freebie isn’t cutting it. Invest in a pack that your back will love
Classic looks belie the Herschel’s practicality. A roomy bag made from thick canvas, it encourages airflow to your back and has
a padded laptop sleeve. A removable battery with three USB slots and a cable tidy system mean the Energi+ turns you into a walking gadget holder
with no power worries. Large yet lightweight, this
brightly-coloured pack combines urban swagger
with simple design. Loops on the sides let you carry a cap without bending it out of shape. That’s a lot to spend, but you shouldn’t ever need another backpack. Handmade from waxed cotton with solid steel buckles, the Krukke
could outlast you.
More British than Marmite but without any reason to hate it, this
is made from Pittards English leather and weatherproof cotton – and even has brass fastenings. A sleek polyurethane finish, waterproof zips and a doublefastened top keeps your stuff dry, no matter how Biblically the heavens decide to open.
