Four Backpacks For Your Summer Adventures

School’s out, which means it’s the perfect time to upgrade your backpack game. Whether you’ll be spending your summer exploring the urban jungle and attending music festivals or taking the road less traveled, Forth + Nomad’s top-notch collection of backpacks has got you – and everything you’ll be carrying with you – covered.

Forth + Nomad is meticulous about the backpacks we stock. All of these backpacks are built to last for decades, and withstand the elements, natural aging, and daily wear and tear. 


For the fan of the classics:

Stash Co.’s Artisan Backpack – Designed with a one-of-a-kind aesthetic of weathered minimalism, Stash Co.’s Artisan Backpack is a best-seller for several reasons: it’s comfortable, is handcrafted from the finest leather available, and combines a classic, timeless design with sleek, clean lines. The Artisan Backpack includes an exterior pocket, an interior snap suede pocket and a roomy body that’ll comfortably adjust to whatever it’s carrying.

For the explorer (whether of mountains or coffee shops):

Bradley Mountain’s The Biographer – This roll-top, waxed-canvas rucksack harkens to a time of exploring uncharted trails, cozying up around the fire and braving the elements. It also looks really good in coffee shops and cocktail bars. Bradley Mountain’s The Biographer backpack is handcrafted with a double layer of waxed canvas, solid brass, and copper hardware and comfortable, wool-padded leather straps. Whether you take it camping in the woods or camping out for the latest [movie], it’s built to last for years to come.

For the hustler in the city and the office:

Bear Cub Leather’s Zipper Backpack – This sharp, clean-cut backpack is perfect for the urbanite looking for a classic, contemporary accessory that can do it all. Bear Cub Leather’s Zipper Backpack is handcrafted from high-quality leather hide and ages beautifully the more it’s worn. It’s perfectly suited for the office, too, and keeps things professional without sacrificing that characteristic charm you want in a lifelong backpack.

For the one who’s craving a blast from the past:

Bexar Goods Co.’s LAND Pack – Eye-catching doesn’t begin to sum it up. Bexar Goods Co.’s LAND Pack is a gorgeously designed backpack that looks like it was plucked from the early aughts of Americana. The backpack’s fine hardware – which includes a Swiss RIRI zipper, hand-peened copper rivers, and antique, solid brass hardware – stand out against the backdrop of its clean waxed canvas. It’s also equipped with two side water bottle pockets, a bellowed front pocket and a double-bottomed canvas for maximum durability.
