Herschel Supply Co. Weather Resistant Collection

Even with the best EDC made out of the most exotic materials you can buy, there’s nothing quite like water to literally rain on your parade. Very few steels, leathers, and especially electronics are impervious to moisture. There’s a saying that goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and that goes the same for your gear—its better to protect and prevent damage in the first place rather than struggling to repair and replace tools you rely on every day. So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, a weather-resistant EDC bag is your best bet, and that’s exactly what Herschel brings to the table with their new Weather Resistant Collection.

The Weather Resistant Collection consists of five sizes of bags to help you store and organize your carry, with something for everyone’s commuting needs. All items in the collection have been constructed from recycled materials, using post-consumer water bottles for more sustainable manufacturing. The resulting fabric has been coated with weather resistant matte TPE, working together with waterproof zippers and storm flaps so your items inside the bags stay as dry as when you put them in.

For a regular day in the city, Herschel offers three backpack options. If you need a lot of space, the Classic Backpack XL is the biggest of the three with 30L of storage, featuring a timeless design with storage for up to a 15“ laptop as well as dual water bottle pockets. To keep things sleek and slim, the Survey II might be your fit—it’s the medium option out of the three with 17.5L of storage. It has enough space for a 15” laptop and dual water bottles, and comes with an additional reinforced base and an internal coated mesh organizer pocket. Last but not least, the City Backpack is the smallest out of the three at 14L for a more minimal carry. It can carry up to a 13“ laptop along with a single water bottle. It features a hidden storage sleeve along with a magnet-fastened rubber strap.

In addition to the backpacks the Weather Resistant Collection also offers two more options for more specific carry needs. If you need easy access to a big day’s worth of gear, the Alexander Zip Tote and its 35L of space can help you out. To make your carry more comfortable, the Alexander features reinforced handles, and features convenient internal organization like a mesh pocket, a water bottle sleeve, and a key clip. If you’re looking to carry only the essentials and want a hands-free journey through the concrete jungle, the Seventeen Hip Pack is the compact choice. It comes with an adjustable clip-fastened strap to keep up to 3.5L of gear comfortably riding next to your body.

All the bags are available in a wide variety of colorways, so you can pick the one that best suits your personal style. Since these products are also available outside the collection in alternative materials, all participating colorways have been marked with a rubber logo to identify them as part of the collection.
