Bellroy Shift Backpack: Carry Giveaway
Bellroy’s mission is to help you carry with greater simplicity and ease. And they do this by finding an expert balance of form and function, pairing clean silhouettes with practical versatility. The new Bellroy Shift Backpack is a prime example of their expertise in this area, and Bellroy’s most performance-focused pack to date.
A backpack that looks suave with a suit but is ready to embrace the open road. A bag literally designed to shift from active to relaxed, urban office to the gym, and overnight trips to airport carry-on use. And we’re giving you the chance to win it for yourself!
It’s not easy finding a bag built for outdoor performance but with office-ready styling. The Shift however offers a refined multi-purpose approach, combining clean aesthetics with useful everyday pocketing, an expandable capacity, and a comfortable weatherproof build that takes the elements in its stride.
The 22L pack is made with highly water-resistant Venture-weave polyester, a unique material featuring crimped filaments for durability and an aesthetically interesting appearance that sets this bag apart in the style department. Enhancing the bag’s construction are trusty water-resistant YKK zips and durable metal hardware, with premium leather detailing for added refinement. The backpack comes in three colorways, Black, Moss, and Ink Blue, and is backed by a three-year warranty.
The bag’s flap-top design features a self-sealing foldover opening, keeping the elements, dust and dirt at bay. The closure is also height adjustable thanks to Bellroy’s custom multi-level fastening system and Slide Hook, so you can easily adjust the volume to suit larger or smaller loads. Simpler than a roll-top, with all the protection and expandability benefits.
Complementing the pared-back, sophisticated appearance is a thoughtful range of pockets to keep you organized, whether you’re commuting or gearing up for a weekend getaway. The Shift Backpack features a quick-access water-resistant zip pocket, ideal for stashing frequently used items such as your phone, keys and wallet.
A side zipper provides access to the main compartment, while internal pockets keep valuables away from crush zones and enable easy visibility of and access to the contents.
You’ll find a padded and suspended compartment for up to a 15″ laptop, along with additional pockets for a notebook, water bottle, work accessories and tools, and smaller EDC items.
Of course, while durability, weather protection and attractive aesthetics are important, a backpack needs to carry well too in order to really round it out. The Shift Backpack ensures comfort on the go even with heavier loads, combining comfy padded straps with a contoured back panel with lumbar support and a removable sternum strap.
This pack really excels at shifting between diverse settings and carry needs, from work to the weekend, and active use to more laidback environments. The adaptable capacity and sleek looks move smoothly from the active commute to the office to the gym, hauling weekend getaway essentials, day hike supplies or urban EDC as required.
