Until we saw this project on Kickstarter we genuinely thought that drawstring backpacks had no place in our ever expanding collection of bags. They’re acceptable for the gym, a festival or when they’re free for opening a checking account in college, but we’d never pay for one. That’s kind of unfortunate because they’re actually quite good for carrying shoes and/or dirty laundry when you’re traveling. Turns out that the bad taste in our mouth was only because there wasn’t a good drawstring backpack… until now. The Mochibag Drawstring Backpack is made of water repellent nylon, marine ropes and metal hardware. The straps are anchored in a channel. There’s a set of opening straps that work as a carrying handle/tie-down. There’s an external zipper pocket. No more uneven straps. No more sore fingers. No more opening just to get your keys. They solved all the problems of the drawstring backpack for less than $20.
