Reminiscent of your Dad's pack circa the late '70s, the Poler Retro Rucksack takes an old-school design and puts a modern spin on it. Constructed with the rugged Campdura fabric, this pack is built to withstands years of wear and tear without actually aging a day. In addition to its classic construction, the Retro Rucksack is equipped with a generous main compartment that's equipped to carry a picnic's worth of supplies and a laptop sleeve which fits most 16in computers. The removable side pouches can be easily detached and reattached and also serve as an internal organizer or dopp kit.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was super excited to get this backpack as just a day to day backpack to keep stuff in. I really like the look of this backpack, that is the main reason I bought it. I have used it to keep cycling stuff in. I have also used it to take my laptop to a coffee shop. The laptop sleeve was perfect to help keep it safe.
However, I have had a few problems with it. The removable side pocket straps are cheaply made. I put a water bottle in one of the side pockets and it kept coming undone no matter how tightly I secured it. The straps are already becoming frayed after only a few uses. The stitching in a few places has also began to come undone. The backpack straps are also very thin.
