Colorado. Home to the Rockies Mountains and subsequently some of the finest outdoor apparel you could wish to find.
Similar in appearance to brands like Mt Rainier & Herschel Supply, Denver based Topo Designs manufacture some of the fittest mountaineering gear around. And by fit I don’t mean fit as in a ‘scaling Mt. Elbert in record time’ kind of way, I mean fit like a medium-rare fillet, or Brooke Davis’ dimples, or other such things of jaw-dropping natural beauty. I mean just look at the clip of their flagship store above. Shop-fronts really don’t come much fitter.
As well as looking the part, their bags are highly functional with a range of stock that includes everything from the compact Woolrich accessory bag to The 22litre Klettersack, which is more suited to those embarking on a serious trek.
As a Christmas present to myself I’ve ordered the ‘Trip Pack’, a compact day pack that’ll accommodate an iPad and that diary your mam got you, which you aim to put to good use by strategically documenting your plans for long overdue lifestyle changes and living out your days in prosperity (until the end of Jan anywhere). Features include a leather lash tab, internal laptop/iPad sleeve with zipper pocket, padded backpack straps with accessory d-ring and top carry handles.
