Durkl, a Washington D.C.-based brand worked on a collaboration with German porter company Ortlieb recently. The result is a D.C.-themed messenger backpack that, as the video implies, serves multiple functions for multiple uses. Backed by Orlieb’s legendary detailing and waterproof-ness, the Durkl & Ortlieb Messenger Backpack is a sure way to cart your belongings around town in a stylish way.
Here are some more words on the project from Durkl:
The 30-liter DURKL messenger bag is constructed of PVC and high density Cordura making it completely impenetrable to water and dust, while allowing the bag to both float and hold water as well A roll-top closure system, and rucksack construction further enhance the technical capabilities. The DURKL bag features a custom U.S.A. colorway with D.C. flag 3M hits, white detailing, and an interior snap-in/snap-out organizer. Available on Saturday, 5/3/2010 exclusively at DURKL.com
I’m totally feeling this one.
