Boston’s BODEGA has teamed up with Gravis Japan on the “Day Tripper,” a limited edition A-frame backpack, to celebrate Bodega’s five-year anniversary. The bag is culled from the Gravis archives, featuring details drawn from vintage hiking backpacks: rugged oversized brass zippers, reinforced adjustable straps, two large interior compartments and plenty of pockets (as well as a padded laptop sleeve). The exterior, meanwhile, is an attractive combination of heavyweight Melton wool in navy with tan corduroy at the bottom. Limited to just 150 pieces, each bag is individually numbered, with retail set at $165. Look for the Day Tripper to drop on Saturday, September 3rd, at both BODEGA’s brick and mortar store and webshop, as well as select Gravis retailers in Japan.
