|60th Anniversary Backpack Limited Edition $150|
Vintage Americana sells...and for good reason. The designs stand the test of time---and the backpacks stand-out amongst all the technical gear.
These, by Kelty---are some of the best we have seen---no wonder they retail at hip fashion outlets---
KELTY is a multi-faceted company celebrating its 60th anniversary.
We loved these vintage style packs that are hitting the market now-featuring leather accents, buckle straps, fashion flag emblem...and exposed nickel plate zips.
New-vintage inspired...the Windjammer $125...an overnight bag with a 21st century laptop sleeve, grab handle, and handy shoulder straps that unclip for use...and fold away.
|electronics fit in here-nice colors too|
Also available-end of November-the China Clipper Bag $175-a bigger version.
Our fav---the Mocking Bird Backpack---the side pockets are removable
Removable backstraps too.... $125.
