A bag to match your habitat

Embarrassed by revealing your inner hippy when you head straight to the water from the office? Stone Island and Bagjack have got your back, thanks to this transformable messenger bag, whose careful alignment of straps allows it to be carried briefcase- or shoulder bag-style down the city’s mean streets, before you turn it into the full-on backpack when you hit your favourite wilderness.

Made with TRYLON-R high performance textile and a Cordura lining, it’s water and wind-resistant and is completed with an overprint ‘Tiger-skin’ effect with laminated inner Wind-Tex® membrane.

Measures 48 x 38 x 14cm.

Price? Tsk, details, details…

A mere CDN$595 (US$575; £368) to you but then look at what goes into Stone Island‘s work…

“Holistic and truly contemporary, the collection continues its investigation of identity, use, and systems through the marriage of new aesthetics and proven technologies…

“Through the use of compound treatments and multiple effects, fabrics and garments are invested with uncommon dimensionality and sophistication. Surface becomes depth as the senses perceive treatment upon treatment and effect upon effect. Patterns map dynamics, treatments reveal structures, and colors deepen contrasts in a way that both obfuscates and rewards.

That uncommon dimensionality doesn’t come cheap, you know.
