🔎 Reviews


"Killer bag, high price tag, but killer. Unpretentious aesthetics. Access and organization. Excellent, innovative materials. Modern classic design."


"this is the sort of backpack that will last a lifetime and can be passed on from one generation to the next such is its first class craftsmanship and highly functional design. A top-loader upon first glance, this backpack unravels (and re-ravels) completely, with an innovative combination of magnets and zips – giving you full control over your access."


"The bag is extremely versatile and will fare fantastically in the vast majority of use-cases...The build quality and carry comfort are certainly highlights, so as always, if the features suit you and the price tag doesn’t scare you off, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Apex."
