"Large" size of "ruck-tote", a bag that combines a rucksack and a tote.
The size is slightly larger than the first ruck-tote model, making it easier to put things in and take them out. In addition, the storage capacity has been improved by adding a new inner pocket.
The tote bag has a handle and an opening on the top, making it easy to check the contents and take things in and out while the bag is on your shoulder. On the other hand, the rucksack has a handle that is attached to the side, so it fits close to the body, and the cushioning and length adjustment function of the straps make it less tiring. I wanted to combine the convenience of both, so I designed a bag that feels like a backpack while on the move, but also allows you to smoothly take things in and out like a tote.
The shape of the bag is a slightly peculiar pentagonal shape, and by doing this, the center of gravity is biased. Become. And if you tilt the bag a little, the opening will be "upward" this time, so you can use it like a tote. The details of the shoulder straps and metal fittings are as “rucksack-like” as possible, and the fabric is “tote-like” canvas. I'm trying to be too.
