Klettersack, by Topo Designs
When it comes to going through your daily routine, a dependable backpack can be your best friend. The Klettersack, from Denver, Colorado-based Topo Designs, has become one of my best friends. With a 22.4-liter volume, it boasts plenty of space to hold my essential, every day gear—books, notepads, rain jacket, chargers, external hard drives, etc. An internal sleeve fits my laptop like a glove and the zippered top pocket is great for stowing smaller items like sunglasses, keys and pens. I also utilize the side pockets to hold a water bottle because hydration is key, readers.
While the Klettersack is generally my companion when commuting to and from the office and traveling, the 1000D Cordura outer fabric and high-density coated pack cloth interior is durable enough to be relied on during outdoor pursuits, too. And, as the cherry on top of the proverbial ice cream sundae, Topo Designs makes all of its products at home in Colorado, USA, something to think about when making your next backpack purchase.
