The Stor backpack from Trakke is a lovely 30L pack for travel and gear moving.
- 30L capacity — perfect carry on size, easily enough space for a long weekend (or for forever, if you can pack minimally!).
- Killer waxed canvas material — British made, feels so dense and nice to the touch, will last for a long time.
- Water resistant — all zips and materials are reinforced against water.
- Simple and honest — it’s ultimately a very simple, honest bag that’s useful for travel, gear carry, and loads of other applications.
