I love how functional a solid rolltop bag can be, and this is one of my favorite rolltop bags.
YNOT is a small company in Canada making killer bags by hand, giving them the capabilities of completely customizing a bag to your specification. If that sounds good to you, check into this co.
This Magnetica bag is one of my favorites from them. It’s utterly functional and has some surprisingly useful features (the water resistant liner as separator!?).
A bag like this works excellent for daily carry or for minimal travel… making it one of my favorite kinds of bags to use as my minimal travel bag.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The Knack Pack from Knack is a surprisingly great backpack for both daily carry and travel... it expands and collapses and has a solid look for professionals out there.
The Guide Pack from Tom Bihn is a bag geek's boner pill. It's classic design and exceedingly excellent manufacturing make it more like an heirloom than a bag. But this bag also performs great as a travel bag!
The Hideout Pack from Everyman is a solid take on a street/urban/heritage bag with lots of organization at an affordable-ish price point.
The Daily backpack from Able Carry is an affordable, sleek little bag for daily carry.
The Staad Backpack from Waterfield almost looks like a piece of art. It's beautifully designed (and functional as a mthrfkr!).
