The Pathfinder embodies Ruitertassen’s resilience.
It is cut from rugged British Millerain’s outerwear twill, and trimmed with our Belgian vegetable-tanned leather.
The interior is completely lined with our waterproof royal blue nylon canvas, and all the external pockets are secured with YKK weatherproof zippers. The pathfinder combines authentic materials, traditional handcrafting methods and hardy weatherproof capabilities. Not to be taken for a light tactical nylon waterproof backpack – rather, a sturdy companion that will do its absolute best to assist you in a various field conditions for a very long time.
Secure a water bottle, or tripod in the elasticated side pocket. Two leather belts, one vertical, the other horizontal will maintain whatever you need to secure there, even when thrown upside down.
You will find a tall map pocket opposite. Stow your map, documents or a light rain jacket there.
At the back of the Pathfinder, we added a hand pocket designed to remain accessible while wearing the backpack on your shoulders. You can store your keys, lighter, passport… Anything you might need quick access to.
Unfolding the backpack from the top will reveal a strong D ring to hook your keys for example.
As you can probably tell, we want the Pathfinder to be practical for long distances traveling, but also be handy while on the move.
Inside, the Pathfinder will safeguard your laptop with a cushioned back pocket. A zip pocket keeps your small accessories separate. The rest is a vast expanse a beautiful royal blue space for your change of clothes and travel accessories.
Let’s finish on an even higher note to understand what sets the Pathfinder miles apart.
This backpack has also been thought for motorcycle and bicycle riding with a length + height adjustable chest pocket. The large back straps are padded and ergonomically spaced out. Finally, the base of your backpack is finished with the same beautiful bridle leather tanned here, in Belgium. A feature you won’t come across often, which explains why not all brands choose to show you the base of their backpacks.
This rugged twill pack is cut for adventure, and built for life.
