Bellroy Puts 10 Years Of Expertise Into The Premium Waterproof Apex Backpack

This year, Bellroy is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in the only way that it knows how — by creating one of the industry’s finest backpacks. But we’d be remiss to say that the newly-devised variant was entirely for the public; and in the end, that might be a good thing.

Over the years, Bellroy has crafted some of the most renowned backpacks around. Over that time, the company’s designers have honed their skills, learned new and interesting ways to make their packs more versatile, and evolved their understanding of the organizational wonder, confronting what makes it so viable in today’s world. The Apex, as its newest project has been dubbed, is the culmination of a decade of bag manufacturing experience, boasting a specially-developed recycled Baida Nylon and a premium, environmentally-certified leather construction. Bespoke hardware, waterproof qualities, and an interesting, but intuitive dual-access architecture make it one of, if not the most, cutting-edge models in Bellroy’s arsenal, while low-profile components and straps — which help it to sit closer to your body and blend seamlessly with your attire — round out the evolutionary bag. Head to the company’s website to pick up one of your own for $449.
