    Great bag

    Excellent quality materials and craftsmanship. The bag is plenty large for a daily commute or as airline carry on, without being too bulky. External colour is really nice and will age well.

    A belter of a bag

    My second Trakke bag after the Portobello, which is also excellent. I love this bag, the design is thoughtful, the different compartments are perfect for all sorts of bits and bobs, the craft is superb, and overall aesthetic is spot on. It shouts handmade quality, and I like to give my money to company’s like Trakke that do things properly, use human skills and make things built to last whatever lunacy life throws your way. This is now my everyday bag, it works perfectly to carry all my tech, notebooks, and general kit, and can be loaded up with a bit of shopping at the end of the day. This bag makes me happy, I emphatically recommend you get one in your life.

    Undubiously stylish

    Got tired of backpacks, especially when I just need to carry a laptop some days. This fits my bill perfectly. Got those water bottle holders for my coffee travel mugs as well. I do wish they were a bit easier to expand though.



    Constructed from durable dry-finish waxed canvas. AustriAlpin COBRA Quick Release 25mm buckles as standard. The world's strongest and safest.

    The internal padded laptop sleeve supports 15/16 inch laptops.

    Work with it. Walk with it. Live with it.

    Made in Glasgow and available in four colours - Black, Olive, Whisky & Port.
