I guess backpacks are BACK?



I'd really like to have a Rachel Comey backpack to tote my scripty things to the set of the semi-crap web series I'm working on this weekend.

But if I had the $$$ for a Rachel Comey backpack I wouldn't be working on a SEMI-CRAP WEB SERIES now would I?

No, I would not.

  7. what does one do with those little suede loop-diamonds? backpacks often have them, and they always weaken the design, i says. am i to attach carabiners to them? tuck a young asparagus shoot beneath each one? so many questions.

  11. okay, fine. they're called lashing squares. what one lashes to them is still beyond me, but i would recommend something with which to defend yourself when people want to beat you about the head and shoulders for 1) being a grown-ass adult wearing a backpack with 2) lashing squares.

    this concludes today's factfinding.

  12. 1. lashing squares are for adding external compartments to the pack via nylon straps and/or asparagus. or, if you're a maximalist, lashing a rachel comey backpack to a rachel comey backpack.

    2. you guys, (and esb, you know i lurv you) these are the ugliest backpacks i've ever seen. AND they're $300. one should only wear this thing if one is involved in the annual species count with the local audubon society chapter, whilst sporting tevas, wool socks, pleated khaki shorts and a glow-in-the-dark howling wolf sweatshirt. but no one's judging.
