Mission Workshop: Vandal Cargo Backpack Nov 19, 2009

Mission Workshop has a new model backpack called the Vandal. Its sole purpose in life is to tow big loads and still be comfortable enough to wear everyday.

As you can see, it’s fairly minimal in design, fully waterproof and comes in four colors; green, black, silver and charcoal. When it’s not in use, it compresses to a manageable size.

When it needs to, it can open up like a snake and devour anything. Like a pony keg?! Hell yeah!

Very nice. I’m a huge fan of backpacks and being handmade in the US is always a good thing. Lifetime warranty too. Sign me up!

Price: $225.

Thanks for the heads up Pedal Consumption.

  • This looks awesome! The price is too steep for me personally, but I’m sure it’s worth it.

    think of all the truck jobs this sucker ($$$) can do.. hmmmm

  • I was recently borrowing a Freight Baggage backpack made a few years ago. In putting it to the test, I carried a full size keg that was about a third full. I bent the rails to my saddle; but the fact that it fit in a medium… It reminds me of Trackstar’s “Girlfriend in a bag”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SKbk-i7JH0

    I move that we redefine how bag sizes are listed. I don’t care how many cubic inches it is, I just want to know how many beers it holds and in what form.

  • This is a great! My cousin was designing something like this for a project he had to do at the U of M engineering school. I’m gonna have to show him this and see how it relates to what his group designed.
