Mission Workshop Arkiv Field Packs

Meet the R2 and The R6. Waxed canvas modular backpacks for the hipster minimalist:

The R2 field pack (only black in color) goes for $229 over at Mission Workshop.  The R6 field pack comes in 2 sizes small $209 and large $229 and is available in black or dark grey cordura nylon with a +$30 option to substitute that out for tan waxed canvas.  The modular accessories listed on the respective pages and range from ~$30 – $100.  The field packs and accessories are made in the USA and backed by a lifetime warranty.

After checking out the nice pictures website and watching the overview video I can say they definitely both look like solid bags which I would like to own.  Waxed canvas (the material the standard R2 is made from) is one of my favorite materials, because it’s not only waterproof but it looks and feels great.

  1. Badass

  2. See, now, stuff like this is why I will keep reading :). I own a bought-in-Australia Drizzabone oilcloth duster, and love the thing to death. A backpack like this would be pretty much awesome.

    If I ever wore backpacks any more. Which I really do not. Oh well.

      When people ask you about your jacket do you tell them “First of all it’s not a Jacket, it’s a duster. It’s like a jacket only it’s longer, it’s thicker, and far more badass.” ( Ref: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNwZ62kYarM ) haha

      I know what you mean about not needing backpacks anymore. :/

  3. These are dope!

  4. Very nice. I keep saying I will be mature and not wear backpacks for work anymore but they are much more comfortable than any other bag style I have tried. YMMV.
    I think I will look up the black one.
