Mission Workshop

Best Backpacks, August 2015

For a carryall as active, versatile, and put together as you are, look no further than Mission Workshop in Silver Lake and its customizable Arkiv transport solution. Handmade and weatherproof, should it ever happen to rain here, the backpack includes an exterior zippered pocket for your phone, an interior zippered pocket for your iPad, and a perfect-for-SoCal closure that converts from flap-down to roll-top mode. Need more room to schlep your laptop, DJ your Zumba class, or mobilize your artisanal bitters kit? Mission has patented a modular system for extra storage. Don’t be afraid of running your bag ragged: This one comes with a lifetime warranty.
