Bag of the Day

Meet the Pleasanton, our rugged, handsome, top-of-the-line backpack with premium  leather details. If you’re on the hunt for a high-end pack that stands out, relax and get comfortable. The Pleasanton is in a class by itself.

Why We Love It

It’s the full package. The Pleasanton combines classic style, rugged good looks, and intelligent, modern design with all the best materials. We’re talking durable waxed cotton twill, premium leather trim, and antique brass metal hardware. The Pleasanton doesn’t just look great, it performs exceptionally well too with lots of easy-access pockets and smart design features. Let’s get into it. The main compartment has a large top opening and a full leather flap with diagonal stash pocket. The internal 15-inch laptop sleeve is padded for extra protection and also has a zip side-entry for quick access on the move.

The Pleasanton is loaded with pockets to keep you organized—two side zip pockets, two front stash pockets, a front cord management pocket, an internal magazine pocket, and an interior slip pocket for an iPad. With ergonomic padded shoulder straps and a sternum strap, this backpack is very comfortable and secure whether you’re hiking a trail or running for a train. Yes, the Pleasanton is versatile. It makes a great commuter pack and also has enough space to work as a weekend getaway bag. Cotton webbing side compression straps let you tighten your load and stow a jacket or sweatshirt. The Pleasanton costs more than most of our packs. And it’s totally worth it—just like the guy (or girl!) who carries it.

What’s it fit?

The stuff that goes wherever you do. A tablet and a 15-inch laptop computer plus all your digital accessories, including cords and power brick, 2 or 3 hardcover books, a large journal or sketchbook, 2 or 3 spiral notebooks, a couple of magazines, a calculator, your trusted pens and pencils, cell phone, and sweatshirt or light jacket.
