Has anyone bought the Cote et Ciel Isar Rucksack? How did you find it?

Should I cop it in black?
>>

It's bulky asf and the hood looks like a trash bag,

It would be my biggest fall purchase, but I really need a bag, and I love the design...
>>
>>8644833
You're thinking of the Nile. I don't think it looks that bulky at all but this is just from what I've seen in pictures.

Why are you here if you have such little money to spend? Unless you are super interested in designers and stuff there just doesn't really seem to be a point to be on a fashion board.

I don't have a lot of money but $200 really isn't that much when you're paying for a quality piece. Especially for something like a Backpack where quality actually matters a lot.

I agree with you there. There's probably cheaper stuff out there tho than C&C that offers even more functionality
>>

Agree.

Only teenagers think being poor "is a choice" because they've never really had to work for anything in their life.

I'm not anything. I haven't worked for anything in my life. I'm a college student. Almost every essential service I live on is paid for by loans, grants, and my parents. I doubt you're any different.

It isn't super bulky, but definitely do not get the large unless you are absolutely putting a 17 inch laptop in it. It would be huge.

>>8644287
I would advise you to look for a place to check out the bags in person. The Isar Rucksack that you are looking at looks really nice with just the right amount of stuff in it, but it is very easy to make it look too full or too empty. I got the Twin Touch Isar instead as I found it didn't have this problem to the same extent. It holds a decent silhouette pretty easily.

Mine came in the mail three days ago. I get quite a few compliments on it daily.

"That's a cool backpack, where'd you get it?"
"Woah is that a backpack? It's dope whatever it is."
"I like your bag!"

People just like looking at it, it's also a decent conversation piece if someone brings it up. As long as you aren't autistic it's a pretty great bag to own. I wear a lot of black and white so I just copped the grey to have a neutral color that makes the bag stand out against the black or white. It's all preference though. It's a great bag OP hope you get it!
>>
>>8644833
>>8645050
I haven't had a chance to handle it yet, but I've seen them around. Definitely not bulky, although maybe bulky for what they carry.

>>8645583

Which is what I'm wondering about, myself. I'm looking for a size upgrade to the Mission Workshop R2 I use now, something for a daypack + groceries, basically. It *looks* like it's large enough to fit a few bags, but they list it as being 17/22 liters, which is even smaller.

How much can you actually pack in? What's the twin touch material like?

The other thing I'm considering is a Mission Workshop R8, but as practical as that'd be I don't particularly want to go full one brand and a statement backpack would be nice (all my other backpacks are super practical).

>>8645130
Burn in a riot, motherfucker. You really shouldn't be on a fashion board if you're not "super interested in designers and stuff." How much money you do or do not have does not have anything to do with it.
>>
>>8645944
I think if you got a huge MW bag with all the different attachments and stuff that's definitely a statement piece plus you get massive amounts of storage. It's definitely more money but I would say its worth it,
>>
>>8644287
Fantastic. Absolutely cop.
>>
>>8645959
I mean, it *is*, but I want some vibe variety. The other current larger packs are all either hardcore outdoor gear, rando duffels, or my MEI Voyageur.
>>
>>8646020
Maybe just cop a small C&C pack for EDC stuff and a mission workshops or something else more utilitarian when you need it.

Well, two things. One, I've got smaller bags with more diverse vibes, but I almost always find myself leaving the apartment with my laptop, and I don't like (especially on a bike, which is usually) running something with weight like that without a three point strap or backpack straps.

Two, they don't really seem to do smaller bags. Everything seems sized for at least EDC with a laptop. Their loss, I think - most of their non-backpack designs look (from pictures) like they'd be much more suited, aesthetically and functionally, to smaller bags.

Like take pic related, the Ebro. Doesn't that seem like an awesome bag to fit, at most, an iPad Mini and a hardcover? But it's meant for a 15" laptop! Who wants all that banging against their hip?

It'd also, OTOH, make a very nice minimalist backpack if they threw backpack straps on the other side.
>>
>>8646184
Oh, and I meant to add thanks for responding anyway.

I mean it sounds like you've got some money to spare so if your willing to go all out why not just go with ACR? Basically everything your looking for good size, very interesting and functional, with a safe extremely well constructed 3 point strap.
>>
>>8645944

I could fit a shoebox inside the back compartment of my Twin Touch. The material is good, it doesn't feel fragile or anything.

As for groceries, it's pretty good. I don't really do big trips though, I go every couple days and just buy a couple things.

It is absolutely perfect for daytrips though, I was out walking for shopping on holiday for about 6-8 hours per day and it held everything just fine. It's really easy to grab things from the back pocket too, you can just swing it around.
>>
>>8648564
Though I should note that putting a shoebox inside the bag would severely push it into looking ridiculously full. Still, if you're in a pinch it will work fine.
>>
>>8645583

Biggest downside is that the Twin Touch's are softer and don't keep the shape as much (which actually seems like a pro for you) and it also loses the hidden stash pocket that a lot of people like about the standard models.
>>
>>8646037
>a small C&C pack for EDC stuff
could you rec a few cool ones? the Isar is definitely too big for me
>>
>>8648604

Look at stuff from either the Memo line (cheaper, less detailed), or the Ebro (the narrower, vertically oriented style posted above).
>>
>>8648624
cheers.
what about the spree messenger though?
>>
>>8648636

It's still sized for laptops. The smallest they do is one for 11"-13" models, which is doable if you don't mind carrying a pretty full-size messenger around even when you don't have a computer on you. Definitely a slightly more manageable scale if you just cannot do the backpacks.
>>
>>8648644
cheers again.
the Ebro is fucking expensive though.
thanks for the inspo, i think i'll figure something out

>>
I was gonna cop but then I saw it in real life retail and went NOPE HAHAHAHA FUCK THESE THINGS ARE RATCHET AS HELL
>>
>>8648908

What was the biggest problem you had? They definitely aren't perfect bags, but the idea of a functional, but design-oriented bag is surprisingly uncommon when it comes to the mid-price range, especially when you require laptop compatibility.
>>
Buy one. Got mine for 60 Bucks (gone now, don't even ask) at TK Maxx and could not be happier.
>>
>>8648916
The material felt okay and everything was okay but for that kind of money you can buy a goat leather IISE or whatever

idk it just felt comically big and impractial
>>
>>8648937

I guess I can appreciate what you mean, but IISE bags cost anywhere from $100 to $150 more and are still usually only half or three-quarters leather. It seems a little bit like an inapt comparison given that IISE is meant as a fashion/leather brand while C&C is more about accommodating computers in an unexpected silhouette. As for the material, I think more people would prefer a water-repellant polyester to cradle their laptops than just leather. I dunno, just seems apples to oranges.
>>
>>8648952
yeah the mesh back is fucking dumb

but yeah, personal preference, I suppose.

I just find the fact that people are posing with c&c backpacks in a tech/active kind of situation irky as hell cause fuck you I'm not gonna jump around with my stiff ass macbook in the back without any protection bruh

Not all work is manual labor, you know.

Oh, in case it's not clear from photos/descriptions, all C&C bags actually have dedicated laptop compartments with padding, like Incase and whatnot.

Definitely hope to cop something from the 3RD ARM line eventually, assuming it passes a handle test, but they're nontrivially more, availability is an issue, and I'm kind of hopingly attached to the idea of having a daypack that's a bit less overtly, traditionally "this is a functional piece of gear."

Right now it's the R2 and two cousins of the 3RD ARM bags, the Sputnik and the Pogo. Pogo doesn't see as much use as I thought it would and I might ditch it, just run with the R2 and Sputnik.

>>8648564
Egh, sounds like it'd be smaller than I'm looking and the liter listing is accurate, but I'll still feel it out.

Something like 35-40 liters would be ideal. Also thinking about the Patagonia Black Hole, even though it's even more of a function piece than the MW. Cheaper and I just like it. I'd get it in black, I think, but the blue is gorgeous and clearer to see in a picture.

>>8648662
The one I posted as an illustration is leather; the ones in Eco Yarn are $135.

>>8648680
Literally the only thing worse than buying something because /fa/ told you to.

>>8650280
It's a sleek enough looking bag, and tough as you could possibly need it, but personally I really prefer having a single buckle on my bags. Just feels unnecessary, and what I enjoy most about clothes/gear/kit is a feeling of fluidity.
>>
>>8645546
wait, is that a knockoff bag, or is he not wearing it properly?
>>
>>8644287I
I've been saving for the dark grey for a while, but I'd need the large for my laptop. I'm not too worried about it looking too big, should be fine?
