Topo Designs Klettersack
Save $49: The Klettersack is one of Topo Designs’ original backpacks. It’s also one of its best, sporting plenty of trail capability but remaining appropriate for daily use around town. The fact that it’s staying power has proven true over the years is remarkable, considering Jedd Rose started Topo Designs by sewing together bags in a basement. Now, the Klettersack is one of the bags in Topo Designs’ collection that reappears every season in different colors but with few changes. The adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies.
That’s because it’s versatile. “It just has this perfect marriage of classic style, classic elements… it works every day, from going to work to taking it out on the trail to travel,” Rose says of the Klettersack. The bag is made with rugged 1,000-denier Cordura nylon, which is known to take a beating. For features, it packs a top-entry main compartment, padded shoulder straps, inner laptop sleeve and compressible side pockets.
The Klettersack, which usually goes for $169, is currently marked down by 30 percent to $120. Some other items from Topo Designs are also on sale at Huckberry, including a duffel and a casual briefcase. — Tanner Bowden

If you’re looking to score a pair for yourself, now’s a great time: three pairs from three of our favorite bootmakers — Clarks, Frye and Allen Edmonds — are on sale for up to 50 percent off at 6PM right now. — Andrew Connor
