The backpack is, well, back ... baby!
Move over messenger backs. Backpacks, it seems, are having a moment. This leather backpack modeled by Cora Coppock Artifact Bag Co. might be good for a walk to work.

Chris Hughes is in the process of building a magnificent backpack.
His is a classy backpack, made from English bridle leather, sewn right here in Omaha. It’s a classic shape, modeled loosely on a backpack once issued by the German military. This is not a backpack for schlepping books across campus or over-stuffing for a weekend road trip (though it’s capable of those tasks, too). It’s a backpack for grown-ups, the sort of backpack he can imagine a young professional wearing as he or she walks or bikes to work.
