Fall brings with it the promise of travel getaways from weekend leaf-peeping to warmer-weather escapes. Wherever you may go this season the right bag is key. We’ve gathered a variety of American-made options to pack for weekend jaunts and extended holidays and present a different one each day this week. First up, the essential backpack.

Archival Clothing Roll Top

Archival’s basic Roll Top packs plenty of storage space for day trips or overnights. Made in Eugene, Oregon, the weather-resistant backpack is constructed of sturdy 18oz cotton duck canvas and accented with rich Horween leather and solid brass hardware. On the exterior sides you’ll find two stash pockets perfect for stuffing keys, your train ticket or even a mini U-lock, while inside a single lined pocket keeps the bag’s contents divided.
