Last but not least, fishpond has landed on a great design with its Black Canyon modular backpack system. This is an internal frame pack that also includes a detachable pack that can be warn as a chest pack or sling. Retail is $179.
The really compelling attribute, aside from the fact that it has that distinctive, classy fishpond look, is that the product is almost completely made from recycled fishing net material. You know… the stuff that floats around in the ocean and will never disintegrate? Well, applied for this purpose, that everlasting trash becomes a supremely durable accessory. What was a problem is now an asset.
Kudos to fishpond, once again, for combining environmental ethic with exceptional product design moxie.
