View all 7 Photos

If you’re looking for everyday adventure gear, look no further than this backpack named for the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, leader of the first expedition to the South Pole. The Roald backpack by Sandqvist is durably made of heavy 18-ounce cotton canvas and detailed with quality leather. On the outside, there are two zipper pockets with enough room for a phone and a small camera. Inside, there is a single zipper pocket and dark gray cotton lining. Padded on the back and the bottom, the bag is a smart, safer choice for toting around a 15” laptop. The design is available in khaki and blue colorways for €159 from END.
