Topo Designs has done it again with the Trail Pack. It's a super minimal, cinch-closure pack available in navy, red or sand, with a durable 500d Cordura body. It's outfitted with heavy duty seatbelt webbing straps, paracord accessory loops and an adjustable aluminum hook for keeping the flap where it belongs. It's also got an easy access flap pocket on the outside for things like keys and your phone that you need to be able to get to quickly. Inside, it's got padded laptop sleeve and an additional organizer pocket. In other words, it does everything you need it to and nothing you don't. We'll take clean lines over an unmanageable amount of pockets any day.
