While most bags grab attention thanks to their design, guys who rely on their packs to preform every day know that it is the material that is most important. That is why quality textiles, above all else, is at the core of what Recycled Firefighter does. Pieces like their Chief Everyday Carry Backpack utilize both tough cordura and reused firefighter gear to build a backpack that can last a lifetime.
This pack is essentially a paired-down bare bones piece for everyday carry with an emphasis on durability and straight-forward utility. Featuring a lay-flat design that both the military and firefighters use on their medical kits, it is just as easy to fill the 21 liter bag to the hilt as it is to remove your clothing or gear when you need it most. That front panel that fully zips open comes in five different colors ranging from a black boot-leather to a reflective Arff silver used in ‘proximity suits’ so you can personalize your own bag with up-cycled material from fire departments. Each bag is sewn here in the U.S. and is made primarily out of the tried and true water resistant 1000D Corder nylon and comes with a front panel with the intention of being used for a career-worth of action. Prices start at $165. [Purchase]
