Meet the Gustin Commuter Series: technical, minimal and perfect for your daily life.
Often, simplicity is the best answer. When you're heading out for the day, it's nice to carry something that does exactly what you need but doesn't try to do more. Clean lines, comfortable to wear, perfect size and easy functionality: this is what we set out to create with our Commuter Backpack.
We start with a 12 liter volume, perfect for daily carries to the office or a solid hike. The profile is designed to be slim, minimal and light. An outside zip pocket gives you easy access to a secure pocket while two elastic closed pouches on the sides are perfect for water bottles, while able to sit close the pack body when not in use. A broad top handle sits tight to the pack and numerous webbing loops are available for clipping keys or other accessories. For a bit of additional weather-proofing, YKK outside zippers are urethane coated. Inside is neatly divided into the main compartment, laptop sleeve for up at 15" computer, and another small zip closure pocket.
We spent a lot of time on contact points, the areas you feel against your body when you wear this pack, to really dial in comfort. The straps are wide and heavily padded. They curve slightly to fit your body better. There is a mesh covered, padded back which adds a huge degree of comfort and breathability. A small, height adjustable (and removable) chest strap can be used when you need a more secure fit.
Finally, for outer shell, we're using a forest waxed canvas. The waxed version creates a very nice contrast between the ruggedness of the material and the more modern pack design.
