I have a bit of a backpack fetish. One of the things I’ve come to realize is that like bikes, backpacks can be specialized as well. Sometimes you just want a small pack, other times you need a cargo backpack and no matter what, having options makes life easier. Manhattan Portage isn’t really known for their backpacks, even though I own one, I wouldn’t consider them to be high-end by any means. That is until they start addressing the Japanese consumers. Hypebeast reports that Manhattan Portage is doing exactly that with their new Black Label line.
From the looks of things, it’s a huge departure from their other backpacks and the cost will most likely reflect that.
