Best Work Backpack – Mission Workshop Arkiv Field Pack
“A supremely flexible system that doesn’t intimidate or confuse – Mission Workshop innovate yet again”
A category that ran a very close race, in the end it was the Mission Workshop Field pack that just pipped the Goruck GR1 for Best Work Backpack. While both are awesomely versatile bags, the MW Field Pack system just offers an extra level of customisability for your work tech.
The Arkiv system allows quick changes amongst a series of clever and well considered modules. With options for your laptop or tablet, small tech, random bits or even a detachable shoulder bag, you can get this pack really tuned in to your needs without it feeling like a Swiss Army Knife of bits.
While we’ve been addicted to the top end VX/R8 option, the lower priced versions are still excellent packs. From the stripped back R2 with only the front rails, to the full fledged R8 with tech fabrics and 8 rails for countless options, the Field Pack system will quickly become your EDC, and is an awesome winner for our Best Work Backpack 2012.
