Remember when people called them knapsacks? A more common moniker today may be backpack, but the design is basically unchanged: a large storage compartment with a front pocket is slung over the back, secured by shoulder straps; gravity does the rest. Every child carries one to school; at Orvis you will find a more refined and grown-up version in our Backpacks & Totes collection. You will also find that while the basic shape of the backpack (or knapsack, or rucksack if you prefer) is unchanged through time, there are plenty of new design elements that have allowed this sturdy workhorse to evolve and adapt to modern demands. Case in point: you will find padded pockets for laptops and tablets in some of our packs, along with other specialized pockets for specialized tools—the smartphone and water bottle come to mind. This handy bag will go to work with you, or on a day hike, or on an airplane in the overhead compartment.
We also have a selection of tote bags to satisfy needs far and wide. Choose styles fashioned of elegant waxhide and canvas, or tough, utilitarian nylon. We even have specialized totes to go with you on beautiful al fresco adventures, should you want to take along a little haute cuisine or a wee dram. You will find packs herein to coordinate with our other luggage collections, along with other one-of-a-kind bags, beautifully styled, consummate superheroes in their own right.
I was looking for a simple backpack to take papers and books to work and back and this is it. This pack is very spacious and has pockets for pencils, pens, and cardholders and a separate pocket that I use for my iPad. The color and feel of the canvas is great and the material should hold up for many years. The natural leather used for the straps is excellent and the brass hardware tops it all off. With the size and capacity of the bag, it will be very useful on hunting trips or as a carry on for future vacations. Overall, this is a very high quality bag and speaks well of the quality that I have come to expect from Orvis.

My husband loves this Orvis Backpack. He has had a similar backpack for the past 30 years which has been with him constantly, to Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Dubai, Ecuador, Africa,Denmark, Iceland, England, France, Greece, Spain, Italy and everywhere in between. He has traveled far and wide for his military career and his backpack is his constant companion!

This great tote has a lot of potential uses. I got two for my wife and they are going in the back of her Explorer so she doesn't travel like a Gypsy. Good for groceries, fly-fishing gear, travel items. Highest quality.
