@henry_david r/rawdenim has some weird comments from know-it-alls sometimes. I used to frequent that sub but have gravitated here. It's much more informed and pleasant.

No offense to Luke and Giles. But I am hoping they have something to suggest that looks less like something from the movie Cliffhanger. 😂

Alpine Luddites do replicas of seventies and eighties climbing gear...

Thanks all for making me feel like I'm not crazy  :D

@Palmer – LOL glad you know them, too. And I've noticed that, @Oaktavia. Hadn't ever been on much as it's always been nicer and more "educational" here.

@Filthy if you're after a retro pack, Rivendell Mountain Works have several that are straight out of the seventies!

The Tom Bihn Guide's Pack, Shadow Guide 33 (the smaller 23 won't fit a big laptop), Guide's Edition Paragon, and Design Lab Edition Paragon all play around with more classic silhouettes. They'll fit a 16" or 17" laptop, though I'm not sure if the Guide's Pack includes a sleeve.

Trakke do some really nice backpacks. The Storr is a travel design, with a zip-open front.

There's an REI store near me that has the ones Luke and Giles suggested and I want to check them out.... and if I don't like them I will probably order a Rivendell. I should hold off and decide what computer I am gonna get first. I'm leaning towards a Surface Pro so I can do Clipstudio Paint and Zbrush on there. I am tied of carrying around like 25 pounds of laptop and 650 watt power brick with me everywhere I go to not ever play any video games on anyway.

@Filthy
The wife and I each have one. Hers is the OG design from 2012. Mine is the slate one on the left. There’s some subtle design tweaks but basically the same..

@Brock yeah those are super nice. If they made one gray or blue with black leather, I'd be all over it.

If feel like your wife would like this t-shirt I have. I wouldn't ever wear it but I liked the art on it a lot. It's dye sublimation printed on a polyester shirt so it feels icky on your skin. But it looks cool.

You could get the one I have and hand dye the leather black really carefully

Haha she might like the mushroom part but the skull would creep her out too much!!

Hey @Brock I wrote to them and requested them make me a charcoal Wilder with black leather. I'll bet they say, "we currently have no plans..."  :D

Defy make the Verbockel in black waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon.

"Verbockel"

They used to do them in grey, but I think that colour has been discontinued. However, the newer models have a zip that runs up the middle, allowing for easier access (and banana peel impressions).

"Verbockel Unzipped"
