Next time you’re getting around in the city, keep your eyes peeled and you’ll be sure to see someone sporting a bag made by Incase. They’ve made a name for themselves in the urban pack market with their sleek, organized, and tech-friendly designs. They’re solid options for school, work, and commuting, but what about when you want to get outdoors? Incase finally has an answer for the weekend warriors with their first-ever rolltop, the AllRoute Backpack. Combining the sharp stylings of an urban backpack with the rugged materials and functional features of a hiking pack, it could be the one EDC bag you’re looking for to take with you from the city to the mountain and back.
As you’d expect from a bag made by Incase, the AllRoute Rolltop starts with safely transporting up to a 15″ laptop. It has its own padded compartment with an easy access zipper along the side. So if you’re packed to the brim with clothes for your weekend trip, you can still get to your laptop at work without needing to re-pack. In the main compartment you’ll get some helpful organization perfect for books or tablets. Its rolltop design also comes in handy if you need to pack a little extra, maxing out at 27L of storage capacity.
Of course, an EDC bag—especially one you’ll take outdoors—should also have your back in the rain. The AllRoute Rolltop uses water-resistant materials from the ultra-light ripstop nylon all the way to the zippers. Plus, it’s a rolltop, so just by its design it helps to keep water out from the main compartment. Convenient Fidlock magnetic hardware closes the rolltop shut in a literal snap, giving the classic rolltop a modern touch for ease of use. On the side of the bag you’ll get a water bottle pocket so that you can stay hydrated throughout the day. And when you need to carry heavier gear or move quickly, it has a sternum strap to help keep the pack comfortably loaded on your shoulders.
Incase isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel with their first rolltop backpack, they’re dialing in the essentials: keep water out, protect what you carry, and look good doing it whether you’re on the street or up the trail.
