Mission Workshop makes top notch backpacks. We loved the Sanction Rucksack, but in retrospect it was missing that opulent quality to help it stand out from the pact. Well, apparently MW can read minds, or at the very least blogs, because a few days ago they announced the Waxed Canvas Weatherproof Rucksack.
This backpack is made from waxed canvas (duh), which by its very nature is waterproof. It’s also a hell of a lot softer to the touch than the Sanction Rucksack’s waterproof material, at least that’s our assumption. And for that, and that alone you’ll pay a premium, since this backpack, aside from the main material and colors, looks to be identical to the Sanction, right down to the pockets (room for a 15-inch laptops) and urethane coated zippers.
You can grab one for $219, which is $40 more than the Sanction Rucksack, in Natural, Charcoal or Brown.
