WIN a One-Off Custom Pack from Rucksack Village!
James Kamo, the master bag maker from Rucksack Village, likes to get to know the people he’s designing for. So, when we paired him up with three of our Carryology crew, we got three awesome (and very different) custom packs in return. And now we’re giving them to you!
Read on to find out more…
When designing a bag, James gets to know what his customer carries, where they go, what their habits or idiosyncrasies might be – even whether they’re left- or right-handed. The three packs he crafted for us are vastly different, because while our Senior Editor Taylor roams the outdoors, co-founder Andy travels a lot, and retail specialist Luke is more of a man about town. Watch James bring these bags to life for each persona over here – but make sure you come back and enter to win one. Because there’s nothing like seeing these bags in person to fully appreciate James’s craft. 😉
The Taylor Outdoor Pack
Taylor Welden is an industrial designer, Carryology Senior Editor, and full-on carry geek. Taylor loves to roam. Be it camping, hiking, or seeking answers to the question: “What’s around the next corner?” The Taylor Outdoor Pack is a bag designed to hold camping gear, that’s stylish enough for urban environments too.
