Mission Workshop has been making well designed, functional, and rugged bags, right here in the USA for the better part of a decade. The Arkiv backpack is everything we’ve come to expect from Mission Workshop and has some interesting features that are worth mentioning.

It’s modular. The Arkiv backpack can be a standalone bag or you can add pockets and accessories via a built in attachment system. Optional add-ons include: pockets, organizers, cell phone holders, and a laptop sleeve. The Arkiv’s flexibility means that you can customize your bag to your day to day needs as well as add on to it for added capacity when you need it.

Waxed canvas. Waxed canvas is a tried and true waterproof fabric, is easy to maintain, and can last a lifetime if properly cared for. In addition to being waterproof, waxed canvas is incredibly tough and durable. And, like your favorite pair of jeans that looks better with age, the same is true of waxed canvas. The more you use and abuse your Arkiv the more unique it will look as it weathers and boasts the marks of good times and amazing adventures.

Mission Workshop backs all of their products with a lifetime warranty. If you want to see the Arkiv in waxed canvas, or other Mission Workshop bags, come by the shop!
