The designs of Belgium-born Tim Coppens have always blended luxury with street-smart functionality. That trend continues with his leather-trimmed canvas backpack. Constructed of navy and off-white canvas with black leather trim, it was built with function, and not just form, in mind. In addition to a top handle, it’s got padded shoulder straps for those times when you need both hands free to navigate the urban wilderness.
As for storage space, this backpack has plenty. The bag is a very generous 17 inches wide and 25 inches deep — more than enough room to fit a change of clothes when heading to the gym or all your carry-on necessities for a very long flight. It also has four exterior side pockets and a lined, Velcro-fastening inner pocket.
Now let’s talk about its look, which is pretty sweet. The bag’s got a nice, classic shape to it, which sets it apart from other backpacks. The sturdy canvas looks like the backpack will keep that shape when filled to the brim. That doesn’t happen with too many backpacks, which sag at the sides when full. The off-white is a bold color choice, with the navy giving it a nice balance. This could definitely become a go-to carryall for busy urbanites who literally find their hands full.
