Before we began our next production cut of Brain Bags, we decided to make a few minor updates to the design. (Just one of the many reasons we have our own factory here in Seattle: we have the power to have a good idea and make it real.)

— You asked for it: six more (nine total) o-rings! Two additional in each main compartment and one o-ring each in the front left and right exterior pockets.

— The best combination of fabrics we can imagine: an exterior main body of 1000d Cordura with a 1050 HT ballistic nylon bottom and an interior of 420d Parapack.

— Reconfigured front left organizer pocket (fits your iPhone better).

And that’s it. The Brain Bag is solid, classic, and true; the longest standing design of our current offerings. We didn’t want to mess (too much) with a good thing.

The Brain Bag. $190. Available for backorder in colors Burnt Orange, French Blue, Olive, Navy, and Black. Ships by early August.
