If there was ever a backpack version of Top Trumps then this ‘Day Pack’ from Mt Rainier Design would be that one trump card everyone want’s to be dealt. It’s the quintessential everyman backpack, whilst still retaining credibility amongst true mountaineering aficionados.
Taking their name from Washington State’s massive ice laden volcano, Mt Rainier Design’s expertise lies in manufacturing the finest of outdoor gear. The brands AW14 backpacks have taken influences from classic American outerwear and paired this with a fresh, functional design to create an everyday pack that rivals Herschel’s ‘Little America’ & Fjallraven’s ‘Kanken’.
The Day pack features plenty of zips, cord pulls and pockets (the staple requirements of any good backpack), woven logo patches on the front/sides and a webbed ‘ice pick holder’ for, well … carting you’re ice pick around I suppose?
”Roger, don’t forget to put the bins out before you leave for work, oh and your wallet and ice pick are on top of the bread bin”
Certainly not your run-of-the-mill winter accessory, unless of course you reside in the arctic circle, are mad keen on a make-your-own mojito, or have intentions to maim your boss (perhaps followed by that mojito). Anyway, do what you will with the ice pick holder, I mean I for one don’t live anywhere near the arctic circle …
