Sandqvist Roald in Sand Colorway
Sandqvist was founded in 2004 by three Swedes sharing a fondness for the rural countryside of their native homeland. A mainstay of the brand’s coveted collection of retro-inspired backpacks, the Roald (named after Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen) is now available in a light beige colorway. Constructed of heavyweight canvas and leather, it comes equipped with two outside pockets and a drawstring enclosure. $180
