It is not easy to break onto the market with a backpack these days. Everyone and their brother seems to be launching Kickstarter campaigns for this, that or the other ‘revolutionary’ new bag – but this one genuinely caught our eye. Introducing the Taquitz Pack by BE Outfitter.
It is hard not to see this pack as being at least partly inspired by the city it was made in, San Diego. Thanks to its blended 400D Cordura Nylon yarn construction, the Tahquitz is tough enough to be taken anywhere from the desert, to the mountains, and even on your dawn patrol surf sessions. The back panel and shoulder straps are made with a breathable, cushioning mesh for comfortable wear throughout the day, and the roll top closure is designed to allow for a huge amount of storage (40L). For those who often find themselves out in hotter climates, the bag has a compartment for a water reservoir, and hidden pockets that unzip to reveal water bottle holders. And then for those who maybe live in wetter ones – the pack comes with the option to integrate their Cabrillo Drybag to keep all of your equipment dry. Not a bad start for such a fresh faced brand. You can make this your go to pack for $150. [Purchase]
