I'm looking for a semi-stylish bakcpack that i can use to the office. I might just break down and get a cordura technical army-backpack in all black or something, but before I do that, suggestions for a nice waxed canvas/leather backpack? I am considering this:

What will you be carrying in the backpack? The Filson Rucksack is surprisingly small unless you find the rare Filson/Vans collab rucksack.

Well, from day to day I carry a small camera with 2-3 small lenses (a nex-7, small), an ipad, ipad-loader, memory cards, card-reader for ipad, a small knife, some odds, bits and ends. It is mostly because my fysioterapeut keeps telling me that using shoulderbags 3-4-5 hours a day will eventually kill my back.

I have looked at a few alternatives:

http://thecarry.com/backpacks/archival-rucksack/

The reason why I want canvas/leather is because I find that these materials look great when aged/used/beat up too, a bit like denim in that regard. But I can live with nylon/cordura too.

Woolrich are currently doing a collaboration with Frost River. I saw it at Redwing Amsterdam last week, and it's not a particularly large pack, but looks a similar size to some of those in Lucifer's post. (Incidentally, I like the Korean Special Forces.)



I also like the Yuketen Waxed Triangle backpack, particularly in orange. A few places have them on sale at present.
