If you’re looking to invest in a backpack capable of withstanding the demands of commuting, but don’t want to pay the investment price, look no further than Filson’s ‘Bandera’ backpack, now $99.97 at Nordstrom Rack.
Filson is known for their outdoor clothing and accessories, so this backpack will endure whatever wear you put it through (even if you’re more of an indoor person), and the Rugged Twill fabric will resist any abrasions. True to being a commuter backpack, the ‘Bandera’ features an easily accessible front pocket for your smaller necessities in addition to a padded compartment for your laptop. The design may seem minimal, but when it comes to something you’re going to be toting around nearly everyday, the last thing you want is an overcomplicated design slowing you down. Don’t think of this backpack as basic; think more along the lines of inconspicuous and sleek, like a spy.
So go ahead and retire that sad and abused canvas rucksack and upgrade to something more sophisticated and substantial, all for a fraction of the price. It’s time you got a big boy backpack.
