Perfect for a summer weekend away, the newly released Adelanto Backpack from Vans’ California Collection channels a well-loved vintage aesthetic that seems at home on the road. As a nice change of pace to the tech-driven bags we often encounter, this mid-sized top loader earns our thumbs up with an extremely basic 12oz canvas construction with few bells or whistles. While the worn-in retro vibe feeds on the pared down three pouch pocket design, we welcome the more era-relavant laptop sleeve strategically placed along the back panel.
And to further inspire your inner rubber tramp, the bag’s bottom comes with two compression straps to hold your sleeping bag or sleeping pad. Find the Adelanto Backpack ($120) along with the rest of the California Collection in store from DQM and other official Vans Cali dealers.
