Topo Designs Flap Pack is a top loading hauler built to handle it all. If we were to pack up and ship out to Copenhagen, this is the pack we would choose to take us and our stuff there. It oozes Scandinavia outdoor style with it's bright mix of perky colour and functionality.
This is the largest of the Topo packs we stock, at 36 litres. At full stretch it's frankly enormous, but thanks to a profusion of compression straps on the sides and base, you can squish it down to the size of a tiny daypack and it still looks the business.
To make good use of that voluminous interior, the flap opens right up to reveal a huge easy access opening, and an interior lined with heavy weight waterproof tarp. Naturally, it's eye popping yellow on the inside, this is a Topo pack after all! The capacious interior also has a large laptop sleeve, and smaller internal organiser pocket. The front panel doubles as a large pocket, accessed via a waterproofed zip, with this panel and the rest of the outer crafted from tough 1000d Cordura fabric, in contrasting colours.
Actual hauling duties are taken care of by wide padded shoulder straps, that are fully adjustable top and bottom. The back is covered with breathable padded mesh, and extra stability is assured thanks to a sternum strap and waist strap, both removable.
This is a statement pack that does it all. We love it.
Finally, a word about Topo Designs. All their lines are stitched together in an environmentally friendly LEED certified factory nestled at the foot of the Rockies, in Denver Colorado. “We use or wear everything we make all the time,” says founder Jedd Rose. They might not look out of place alongside the packs in Urban Outfitters, but they have the outdoors flowing through their veins, just like you good reader.
