Here’s a great-looking retro rucksack from the guys at Knox. We’re quite impressed with the looks of this bag that goes against the grain of modern and streamlined design of most motorcycle backpacks.
Here’s what the folk at Knox say about the bag:
Designed in Knox’s east London Studio, this waterproof rucksack blends traditional styling with modern functionality and rider-specific features.
- 100% waterproof main compartment with seam-sealed lining
- 25-litre capacity
- Leather trim & webbing carry handle
- Fully adjustable shoulder, waist and chest straps
- Spacer fabric panels for air-flow around back
Made from a tough, durable PU-coated 600-denier polyester outer with a 1.4mm leather bag base, the main compartment offers a generous 25-litre capacity and its lining has fully taped seams with a roll-top closure. To ensure the bag is 100% waterproof, a double layer hood covers the roll top.
For extra capacity there are three external deep outer pockets, sealed with water-resistant zips, and under the hood there is a neatly concealed pocket that houses straps for carrying a helmet when off the bike.
With additional leather detailing and chrome side release buckles the Studio rucksack enhances the vintage appeal.
Comfort is key to carrying, particularly on a motorcycle, so naturally the shoulder straps are padded and, like the additional waist and chest straps, they are fully adjustable too. All straps feature elastic loops, which prevent any excess webbing from flapping in the wind.
For added comfort, spacer fabric is used on the inside of the shoulder straps and down the back, to help improve airflow and reduce the build-up of moisture.
The Studio Rucksack is available in black at £59.99 including VAT.
