Although DSPTCH originally got its start producing camera straps back in 2010, the California-based design studio has since expanded its offerings to include everything from key chains to face coverings. Across the board, you’ll find that each product combines a sleek, minimalist aesthetic along with some good ole utilitarian functionality.
The latest addition to the DSPTCH lineup comes in the form of the Ridgeback, an all-new carry solution that offers a preview of the brand’s forthcoming design language. Engineered with a simple, streamlined construction, it features a shell-style closure that allows it to be lighter and more versatile than any existing DSPTCH silhouette. Inside, it’s been fitted with a 16″ padded laptop sleeve, while around the exterior, it comes with some MOLLE webbing that makes fitting modular storage setups a breeze. Made right here in the USA, it’s being offered in both ballistic nylon and Dyneema flavors, making it more than tough enough to tackle any commute. The Ridgepack is available now for $168 and $260 respectively. As with all DSPTCH bags, it comes backed by a lifetime guarantee.
