Among the sea of products built for the ubiquitous “modern man on the move,” Troubadour stands above the rest with obsessive detailing and clinic-clean lines. The company first gained cult status with overnight bags that were sleek, weatherproof (what else would you expect from a brand based in London), and a bit pricey. Their new Explorer series doubles down on out-of-office adventuring, but at a price that appeals to those who work to live, and not the other way around. The collection — which ranges from 26-liter cycling-inspired rucksacks to 16-liter commuter-friendly totes — comes standard with pockets aplenty for quickly accessing pens, zipping away valuables, and padding your breakables. These efficiencies of minimal design and maximal utility are bundled into an unbelievably lightweight, obsessively sturdy bag made of waterproof fabric and zippers, in addition to an antimicrobial lining. It’s the only bag you need, anywhere.
1. No Sweat:
Constructed from lightweight fabrics with as few seams as possible, Troubadour bags are impossibly lightweight. Pair this with an electro-molded breathable back panel and padded straps engineered to prevent pressure points, and you’ll arrive at the office with a sweat-free back, ready to work.
2. Airport Engineering:
The Explorer series shines during rainy, off-piste adventures, but details such as a built-in trolley sleeve that slides over the handle on your rolling luggage are the real heroes. These bags keep you free and agile, whether you’re climbing a rock face or sliding through airport security.
3. Peace of Mind:
None of Troubadour’s bags use paints, finishes, or chemicals that harm the environment. And rest assured, all fabrics come Bluesign approved for guaranteed sustainable manufacturing, and all leathers are naturally vegetable-tanned. Any problems? Each bag comes with a five-year guarantee against any manufacturing fault.
