Heritage, Innovation, Dyneema, Exclusive, Tailored
In the heart of London, the bustling streets of Savile Row are revered not just for its historic tailoring but for the stories and legacies stitched into every fabric. From these storied avenues emerges a creation that feels out of time, yet completely ahead of it: the Cimoro Super_Limited V1 Backpack.
Alasdair Leighton-Crawford, the visionary behind Cimoro, is not a stranger to accolades. From being a former pro athlete to diving into the intricate world of lingerie design, he's gathered experiences that would fill lifetimes. But it’s his role as a self-proclaimed Future Master Craftsman that particularly intrigues. This blend of heritage with the high-tech realm of 3D and AR sets him apart.
This backpack, exclusive to Huckberry, feels like a beautiful contradiction. A marriage of the futuristic and the timeless. Crafted in the ever-sturdy Black Dyneema fabric handpicked by the master craftsman himself, it is tailored to be both a statement and a companion. The top-loading messenger style grants easy access, while an internal padded sleeve ensures your tech – up to 16” devices – is well protected.
Keeping organized on the go? No frets. The bag houses an internal zip pocket with two mesh holsters, ensuring every essential has its place. The innovative Cimoro G-Hooks on the straps aren't just for show; they promise reliability with every fastening.
Now, let's talk about those buckles. The 25 mm Cobra® Pro Style AustriAlpin Buckles aren't merely aesthetic choices. They’re renowned for their prowess in bearing weight and their swift fastening capability. Combined with double-stitched seams fortified with the strength of Amann Onyx threads, one can't help but admire the seamless fusion of durability and design.
Two side pockets and a spacious front one provide additional room. And for those long treks? A pass-through for a hydration bladder, ensuring you stay refreshed. All these come in a sleek package weighing only 21.2 oz.
So, what’s my take? The Cimoro Super_Limited V1 isn’t just a backpack. It’s a testament to the alchemy of tradition and forward-thinking. A reflection of London's juxtaposed world of century-old craftsmanship and avant-garde innovation. It speaks to those who appreciate the stories behind their gear, seeking not just function, but a narrative. So, if you're the kind who believes in journeys both physical and metaphorical, this might just be the backpack of your dreams.
