Equipped with waterproof zip components and detachable waistband, the limited edition backpack has been ergonomically designed and features a laptop pocket with an elasticated sleeve compartment.

Currently sold out on most online retailers, it is unclear when or where the bag will be re-stocked. Stay tuned to visvim for more information.
