My filson rucksack handle tore off where it attached to bag, piece of rubbish. Got it repaired by them but never again. It's also fairly annoying as a bag since there are no internal compartments, so it's just a sack of your stuff, and the front pockets are very pickpocketable, so your valuables end up right at the bottom of the sack compartment or stolen. Not to mention faffing around with the buckles just to close it.

Noone asked for it, but there's my review of this overpriced piece of rubbish: https://www.filson.com/uk/rugged-twill-rucksack.html

Based on this item, I would never recommend purchasing filson.

Fair point. I got a cheaper twill day pack as it has a full zip but just a button stud on the flap. Has a laptop section but otherwise an annoying lack of internal pockets.

I have both the briefcase and rucksack and love both but FWIW I don't use the backpack for work. The lack of internal org doesn't really matter for me as a result, but definitely one of the most versatile looking bags I own. Doesn't scream nankid when you're wearing it on weekends, and like the back sleeve pocket for keeping a scarf, kindle, book etc.

New commute is gonna require a backpack and will need to amalgamate work and gym bags.

What do you fuks use?

Like the look of this Aer number but seems to be impossible to source in the UK.

Still using a black ballistic and occasionally a Klattermusen Baggi.

Above looks a bit like the arro from Arcteryx which is a bit of a nicer shape imo.

Yeah, Arcteryx is nice. Might give that a whirl.

Would have preferred unbranded for the office though.

Any decent gym bag recommendations ? Been using mulberry clipper but it’s fucking it up, something slightly bigger that will still fit in a locker.

This should do the job and it’s cheap.

Not sure if it has to be a backpack but I’ve got a North Face holdall split in to 2 and ventilated for gym kit so you can keep gym kit in one side and normal gear in the other

^ also does anyone have any other recommendations with the same aesthetic? Lots of compartments is also a bonus. Thanks

i've got a cote et ciel riss messenger in synthetic. wondering if i should go for the same model in leather now it's on sale.

very tempted, just because it's leather. but i've never owned one before. anything i should know about care, etc?

the nylon one i have now is more practical just because it's better as a daily beater. so i'm not sure if i'm being smart replacing it.

Have Mismo prices gone up?

Obviously they were never cheap but this is bananas for a JD bag.
