Mission Workshop R6

It looks great in most environments and will keep your contents dry. The Arkiv Field packs come in lots of configurations, to which you can add lots of modules, giving you LOTS of options.

Bedouin Delireis

We’ve been shouting ‘Bedouin!’ from the rooftops for a while now. And for good reason: they blend beautiful materials and elite craftsmanship and throw in symbols of surrealism, orientalism, fantastical geometry and momento mori into their lining for good measure. And the Delireis is a fine example. Constructed from waterproof 14 ounce silk wax waxed […]

Mission Workshop Rambler

The little bro of The Vandal, The Rambler is a littler bag with a lot to offer. You see, the pack can expand to double its size, so there’s plenty of space for additional storage if required. It not only looks the biz but has quality structure and a good waist strap (removable) and is […]

Mission Workshop Vandal

This is a really innovative pack made for urban environments and two-wheeled adventure. There are loads of original ideas in it, that get jaded old bag fiends like ourselves frothing. And dang this can grow! The pack has massive expansion abilities and can double its size. The build quality is high, looking as good in […]

One of the smaller offerings from the Mission Workshop stable but still with all the looks and killer build. Made with a 1000 denier VX Cordura ripstop shell backed with a PET waterproof membrane, this 20L gem will keep the weather out, whilst keeping your gear snug. Designed for the bike, this pack can double […]
