Wandrd Prvke Rolltop Backpack Review

A very stylish and functional bag for both urban and outdoor use that does not let us down in organization, durability and thoughtful design.

The Wandrd Prvke (pronounced “provoke” or “perrrrvrkeeee”) is a great bag for technical daily carry and minimal travel. Built rugged, good looking, water resistant with tons of pockets. It comes in 2 sizes — we like the 20L for daily carry and minimal travel and the 30L for bigger bodies and longer trips.

The rolltop expands to fit so much stuff! This is one of my favorite features of this bag. You can expand it to fit a literal ton of shit, and then, pull the shit out and roll it up so it looks like a regular bag again.

I also love the organization and accessibility of this bag. It has tons of little pockets hidden throughout, as well as zippered access to larger internal pockets. That Zippered access is a must for me on a rolltop because I find it annoying to roll and unroll the bag every time I need to get into it.

This bag does a great job of tech organization too. The laptop compartment, the optional camera insert, and the pockets throughout make it a seriously functional companion to the digital nomad.

And I have to say how rare it is to find a bag that you can both travel with AND use as a daily carry. It’s similar to the Synapse 25 that way. And that’s why these two are a couple of my favorite bags currently.


Build Quality:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Solidly build. Not the prettiest or most crafts-man/womanliness of build (you'll notice in some corners it lacks elegance), but it's solid as hell and built to last.

Water Resistance:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Water resistance on this thing is solid. Lots of rolls in the nylon fabric up top, and the tarpaulin is literally what some boats are made of.

Internal Organization:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Carry Comfort:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Doesn't Look Weird:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

I find myself recommending this bag to many kinds of people still, several years later, because it satisfies a kind of “young but serious” aesthetic… made durable, solid organization, but it’s got a solid, good look.
