Elegant But Rugged Würkin Stiffs Bags for the On-the-Go Warrior


As an avid traveler, I’m always looking for nifty backpacks with lots of nooks and crannies that are also stylish. While we love color and creativity around here, sometimes you just can’t beat a classic black leather bag, whether that be a tote, weekend bag or a backpack and Würkin Stiffs offers all of that and more. They also have a nice selection of Doppel bags and wallets. Known for crafting handmade bags from a combination of coated canvas and leather, there’s a sense of ruggedness in the final product and yet its style couldn’t be more elegant.  Some of their bags have RFID Protected Pockets and hidden umbrellas.  My favorite of their current product offerings? The Würkin Stiffs Classic Backpack!

I tend to find that most backpacks don’t have enough pockets and…they’re either too large or too small.  This backpack has a Mobile Phone Holster that stretches to fit any phone, two RFID protected side pockets, a Notebook/Tablet zippered compartment on the side for quick access (this was too small for my MacBook Pro however), a Hidden Pocket Underneath with a Flat Umbrella (a very cool feature for frequent travelers), and the interior is all made from Microsuede, so it has a lovely feel to it.

The size is a little on the small size so if you’re wanting a bag for more of a weekend getaway, this isn’t the best choice. I tested it out at a conference recently and used the side pockets for all my chargers (my favorite feature is that there’s a few side pockets to keep chargers separate), and the main compartment for my laptop, Canon 7D and one lens.  It’s roughly 7.5 inches deep, 13 inches wide and about 16.25 inches tall.  The other thing to note is its durability – it feels like it will withstand a lot of wear and tear and last for many years — take a look at the quality and the detailed stitching.


For those wanting a bit more space, check out their weekender bags, which comes with a complimentary laundry bag and a quick-access back pocket, all designed with the traveler in mind. For more information including photos and specs on other product offerings, check out www.wurkinstiffs.com.
