Time and time again, Mission Workshop has demonstrated an uncanny ability to design and construct perfect packs, and they approached the pinnacle with the original Rhake backpack. Now they’ve done themselves one better by introducing a version furnished using Fairfield Textile 10 oz. Army Duck Canvas with a Martexin Waxed finish.

This already stacked pack has all the storage space you need for a day trip or even a weekend jaunt, including dedicated pockets for your laptop, tablet, phone, power chargers, keys, sunglasses and water bottle. The Rhake WX also boasts a 22-liter main compartment for accommodating additional gear and clothing, and the shoulder straps feature Arkiv rails for attaching small accessories.

The Rhake WX is available for pre-order now and ships early next month. The regular price is $455, but use the code RHAKEWX to knock $70 off, for a total of $385. Yes, that is still no small amount, but you will likely have and use this pack for a lifetime, so consider it an investment in long-lasting quality.
