Finding a work bag that’s durable enough for travel yet equipped for a day in the office is already a tall order. Finding one that ticks all the boxes for a working professional and an outdoorsy weekend warrior is a challenge few brands can solve.

Leave it to Bellroy—with their extensive experience in crafting utility-driven EDC gear—to deliver a set of bags built for everyday adventures. Their new Venture Collection is well-suited for everyday carry anywhere life takes you.

As a certified B-Corp, Bellroy also prides itself on creating durable and sustainable EDC gear. That's why these bags feature 100% recycled, water-resistant woven materials.

With three different bags in the collection, chances are there’s something for you and your next adventure.

Venture Backpack

Bellroy designed the new Venture Backpack as an evolution of their learnings from producing several previous heavy-hitters, like the Apex Backpack, Transit Workpack, and Chimera. That thoughtful design works for office commutes, traveling, and short outdoor hikes.

The 22L capacity is perfect for a day’s worth of gear. For easy loading and unloading, the front panel unzips to lie flat. The top flap makes accessing the inside of the bag quick and easy. The dedicated internal laptop sleeve can accommodate up to a 16" device while keeping it protected with ample padding. The shoulder straps are also padded for comfort. Combined with adjustable sternum straps, the Venture Backpack hauling a full load manageable.

Venture Duffel

The spacious 40L Venture Duffel hauls everything you might need for travel and does it in style. It features a clean and minimalist look that stands out from most other bags at the luggage carousel. The ultrawide zip opening makes it easy to take full advantage of the bag's size. The top handles and side grab loops help you get it through tight baggage compartments. And your back will appreciate the Venture duffles' extra-padded detachable shoulder straps.

Venture Sling 10L - Camera Edition

If cameras and small electronics are part of your everyday carry, the Venture Sling Camera Edition is for you. It's Bellroy's first bag specifically designed for photographers. The Venture Sling has a padded 10L capacity and a quick access top zipper design. There's enough room for a mirrorless or compact camera and the lenses you need to get through the day. The exterior tripod straps come in handy when needed. On lighter days, the self-compressing gussets keep the bag slim. The ambidextrous shoulder strap allows for front or rear carry, and you can remove it for storage too.
