You shall be excused for thinking that Fredrik Packers is an European brand by the sound of its name. However, this bag company is located in Japan and makes everything by hand the old school way. Using high quality cordura nylon from the US’s National Molding for the bag, and adding high quality materials such as extremely soft taping for the bags sourced locally in Japan, Fredrik Packers is one of those makers who refuse to compromise on quality. Recently, the label has dropped new colorways of its Mountain Pack backpack in medium size. The core market for these backpacks are cyclists, but it is well designed to suit casual shopping, short trips, and general everyday use. Four color combinations are created in pastel blue/charcoal, purple/black, light brown/charcoal and black/light brown. Currently available at their online store.
