Julie wearing the Brooks Pickwick.
“A versatile canvas roll-top, the Pickwick Day Pack reflects the timeless appearance and durability eternally linked to Brooks. Hand constructed in Tuscany from water-resistant cotton and genuine Brooks leather trim, the Pickwick will stand apart without sacrificing functionality.
To that point, the Pickwick features hidden, waterproof zippered pockets on the back of the bag, with a large main compartment for easy stashing and retrieval of gear. To keep everything dry, a water resistant coating is added to the tough cotton canvas, and the roll-top design effectively locks out rain. To keep the Pickwick stable, offset straps are simple to adjust, and a chest strap helps steady side-to-side movement.
The Brooks Pickwick Day Pack is available in two sizes, 24 or 15 liter, and is available in the colors Asphalt, Cherry, Mud Grey, Octane Blue, Saffron Mustard, and Sand.” – Brooks
Doug wearing the Chrome Barrage.
“There is only one way to make a bag truly waterproof – by welding its seams. For the Barrage Rolltop we combined a Welded-Waterproof floating bucket with an abrasion resistant CORDURA® Brand grade outer shell to make the toughest waterproof rolltop possible. It features a low-profile design and side compression straps for load stabilization and increased visibility, an external cargo net to haul gear on the outside, and a Welded-Waterproof bucket liner that can keep personal items bone dry in any weather. The Barrage adapts to accommodate a range of cargo. The main compartment expands from 22L to 34L and features an expandable cargo net with compression straps for securing various cargo shapes and sizes.
Each Barrage is made with military grade materials and specifications. The 100% Welded-Waterproof bucket liner is made with 600 denier truck tarpaulin. The abrasion resistant outer shell is made with 1000 denier CORDURA® Brand grade Nylon. Like all our bags, the Barrage is Guaranteed for Life.” -Chrome
