WTAPS brings out these new carrying pouches as part of it’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection. These bags are made from durable nylon, these pouches should be helpful in carrying small items from point and shoot cameras to any small travel items. There’s a double-zip fastening at the main compartment with two external pockets and an adjustable body strap. These are also reminiscent of the fantastic WTAPS x Porter collabs that came out in the mid 2000s. It’s been a while since WTAPS put out accessories like this so be sure to snatch them up before they sell out. Both colorways are available at END Clothing.

I find that backpacks are the my favorite way to carry essential items from point A to B. If you’re looking for a new well designed pack, I’ve selected some of the best of the season below.

Acne Olov Backpack

Pretty much as minimal as you can get, this Acne backpack features extremely clean lines in shiny black nylon with minimal stitching. This will pretty much go with anything you want to wear and features a classic schoolbag shape.

$320 at Acne

Visvim 20L Ballistic nylon and canvas backpack

Visvim backpacks are famed for their design, durability and just how damn good they look. These recur season to season with slight revisions on the style popping up each year. This year’s edition comes in navy ballistic nylon with a robust suede bottom. Plenty of zippered pockets and padded back/shoulders will keep you comfortable. While the pricepoint is steep, rest assured that this is one of the best packs on the market.

$690 at Mr.Porter

Undercover Olive Drab Porter Edition Backpack 

Undercover re-vives it’s classic bag shape for Fall/Winter 2014 with a collaboration with Porter. The two signature two pocket design is now in standard Porter nylon along with some nice detailing : brass hardware, cowhide trim and tonal stitching. This edition of the pack shouldn’t be around for long so if you can’t scoop an older version online, this may be an excellent choice.

$675 at SSENSE

Master-Piece Surpass Backpack

Master-Piece makes some great packs that provide good value given the made in Japan quality. While plebes might get it mixed up with a Herschel, you’ll be the wiser. Cordura Nylon fabric and leather shoulder straps make this stand above the average pack.

$250 at East Dane

Marni Grey Felt and Leather Backpack 

If you’re feeling a bit too grown for a backpack, you may want to go with something a bit more luxe and low-key like this grey felt bag by Marni. A really pared down design that is mainly led by it’s materials. Grey felt wool and contrasting black leather panels. This backpack is job-interview approved.

£600  at Oki-Ni

Balenciaga Classic Traveller Backpack

Balenciaga outfits their Classic Traveller bacckpack  in forest green nylon with black leather accents. This is definetly at a luxury designer pricepoint so it isn’t for everyone, but it definetly would pair well with a clean techy wardrobe full of items from Dries, MMM, Jil Sander and Raf. While you may have to be part of the ruling class to afford this thing, those of you can who can pull it should be able to put together some great outfits using it.

$1,465 at Barney’s

While accessories aren’t the first thing to come to mind when you think of Undercover, UC has had a great track record of putting out standout backs, wallets and jewelry in the past. I really like the standard backpack model they used and the camo packs from the ‘Less but Better’ collection are still grails for me.

Haven has received a shipment of the new M6B01 rucksack in grey and black. The nylon packs look durably constructed with a nylon body and leather finishing at the bottom of the pack. Multiple side pockets enable you to organize and stash all the things you need on a daily basis. You can find these over at Haven for $675 USD.

I was first started tracking Silent Whisper several months back and you may remember the initial post I made about the brand. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of using several items from the line. I gave all three items I received thorough use and I have to say I like them better now than when I first received them (which is the opposite of what usually happens). The above photo is how the package came as you can see there’s some serious attention to detail paid here. The T-shirt came inside plastic bag and the whole package was stored inside either the dust bag or branded cardboard box. It felt great opening up the mail that day and seeing what was there from the handwritten labels to how carefully each item had been packed. I have to admit that my accessories game is kind of weak and I’ve been looking for a reliable and affordable leather goods brand that I can turn to time and again. I’m happy to report that I may have found it in Silent Whisper. In this review I tackle the following items:

  •  Position Locator – Bi-fold Wallet Model: AF-W01-005
  • The Interwiner – Long Slim Belt Model: AF-BT01-001
  • Eyes & Sins Prologue – Roses of War Model: GT-01-001
