As a general rule, we’re pretty anti-backpack: while they’re certainly excusable for camping and the like, nothing makes grown men look like kindergartners faster than strapping on a big hulking Jansport on the way to work. However, when we first laid eyes on this stunner from Joshu + Vela, we had to reconsider our stance. This isn’t your ordinary, could’ve-had-it-when-you-were-in-grade-school backpack. This is the backpack that grew up. It’s more Happy Hour than Happy Meal, more Field Notes than field trip, more freetime and less naptime. This is the backpack that your elementary-school backpack used to daydream of one day becoming. And with its natural leather accents and tough white canvas, this backpack is going to continue to change with age as well– something we should all remember to do. Get it here.
