Butter Backpack – Waxed Canvas Daily Commuter Backpack
Your daily backpack has to cope with a lot, you know this, we know this. Butter Backpack is designed to protect and serve, much like RoboCop. Combining waxed cotton canvas, leather and jungle camouflage this medium sized backpack with it’s mildly retro styling is designed for everyday commute, travel, work, beach – wherever you need to carry things, this backpack is ideal.
Outside, the body is made from our custom woven, finished and dyed waxed cotton canvas, making it ridiculously strong and durable, then we double and triple stitch every seam. The padded shoulder straps are made from the same canvas and leather, adjustable with solid metal hardware – custom electro plated in deep grey. Across the front of the bag are two adjustable snap straps, designed to hold the hood secure, and carry a jacket, coat, yoga mat or even a board. The front also features a large external pocket for – well, more stuff, a Walkman?
Inside the bag, opening completely with double metal YKK zips you enter the jungle (canvas). There are 3 pockets; 2 slip pockets for laptops, MacBook etc then a zipped pocket for securing even more ‘things’. The main slip pocket measures 26 cm x 35 cm – this is padded and held shut with an adjustable Velcro fastening. The second slip pocket measures 28 cm x 30 cm and is more suited to a tablet or iPad device. On front of these two pockets is another large zipped pocket – 18 cm x 18 cm great for keys or wallet etc. The main compartment is suited to carrying the A4 folders, books and your lunch.
With the overall construction focusing on strength and durability, access to the pockets and main compartment has been the main consideration. That’s why this bag features double zips on the main compartment. You choose how to open the bag, so grabbing a bottle of water whilst penned onto the train like a sardine does not require much more than a fumble and tug, but should you wish, the zips can be tucked up under the hood offering much more security…
This commuter backpack is ideal in many ways, it carries everything you need on a daily basis for work, play or travel, whilst looking simple and refined, it is constructed from some of the best canvas ever made that develops and gets better with age, and is the shape and size that makes it a perfectly grabable all day long backpack.
