Aug 06, 2012 @ 00:59
Just picked this up today.

Absolutely love it. Im always been into bags and this is by far the best bag i've owned. Nice inner layer too with pockets. They have tons of colorways, too.

Go with NFs purple label or Penfield. I've tried both Jansport and Herschel and I really dislike that "crushed" look that happens overtime. Not that durable in my opinion either. All opinion based, just giving you my experiences.

It's called the "Walton" its a 36L bag.

I don't know if you have an equivalent to MEC in the US, but MEC's got it on lock for styles and price, quality too.


Personally I have an Atmos backpack I got from the marketplace ~1 year ago, and a Y-3 canvas bag from the marketplace. Mine is different from those linked but I can say the quality is good though. I can't speak for TNF's quality, but they have some nice simple designs, hopefully the price is reflective of the quality. If you were Canadian though, I'd say MEC 100%

I'll just copy my post from the other bag thread.

@drewbacca they hold up great very nice quality backpack
Was the middle finger necessary? You're giving us a bad reputation. I've seen your other posts. They all seem to reflect ignorance and how much of a douchebag you are. Grow up.

Not exactly the most fashionable but definitely functionable, I'd recommend a laptop backpack from high sierra. I bring 2-3 books + binders to college everyday along with my laptop. With a High Sierra backpack all that weight feels like nothing. Don't believe me, look it up on Amazon, super high ratings.

Few updates..

Inside leather patches

These are our backpack handles before they are sewn on. 100% natural double-layered leather so its extremely sturdy! There are no logo prints anywhere on the bags except the handle where IISE is hand stamped.

Behind the scenes production shot! All of our bags are handmade in a small workshop in Seoul by people who have been in the industry for over 30 years.

Detailed shot of our straps before they are connected to our M2 & Daypack models. We love the ash black color and how textured and random the patterns are for each and every strap.

Another behind the scenes shot from our lookbook shoot. Traditional Korean architecture is so inspirational. The details you can find on the roofs, doors, and walls are all amazing.

Army of IISE daypacks ready to take over. 

Production is now officially finished, few more days to our release!

There are several good brands that won't break the bank when it comes to picking a backpack for college. This useful article on picking the right one could be helpful!  http://www.backpacksforcollegehq.com/  This site also has articles and reviews on different types of bags for college (laptop, messenger bags, etc.)

I use a Chrome Messenger bag, Tons of room & they are rain proof

Been using my black scale bag i got from the recent sample sale. Keep an eye out for when those drop. Thy are super sturdy, clasps and buckles are high end gunmetal. Moderately big but being an art major it allows me to carry everything i need.
