How to Clean Ogio Backpacks

Ogio International is dedicated to designing gear bags with a nod to action sports. The company's nineteen models of backpacks are available in a variety of colors and patterns. The packs are designed with compartments and storage sections that allow easy access to gear. Some can accommodate laptops. The packs are sturdy and dirt resistant but there will be times when it may be necessary to clean your backpack


  1. Fill a small bowl, or cup with warm water. Add a squirt or two of a mild dish detergent.
  2. Dampen a clean sponge, or cloth with the mixture.
  3. Dab any dirt spots with the wet sponge. Repeat if necessary.
  4. Allow to air dry
Do not wash your Ogio backpack in the washing machine. Doing so will void your warranty

Lusting after backpacks

I’ve had my eye on backpacks for quite some time. Ever since I saw Mary Kate and Ashley’s crocodile leather backpack from their collection The Row, I knew I wanted one, particularly that exact one, but with a price-tag of $39,000 (circa €31,000), I obviously had to pass. Despite the hefty price the bag actually sold out - if you can believe it, according to Ashley Olsen “it was the first thing that sold off the shelf”. I ENVY everyone who was lucky enough to buy one.
As much as I love backpacks, I still don’t know whether to invest in one because I am wary of how much use I will get out of one. Unlike a handbag, which you can pretty much swing over your shoulder for any occasion, a backpack is more like a piece of jewellery or clothing - it is definitely more of a statement piece.

Mission Workshop’s Arkiv Modular Bag Design

We're impressed by the ambitious design of the Arkiv Field Pack, a modular bag system allowing "for easy customization of space and organization with the secure and simple attachment of independently weatherproof accessories utilizing unbreakable steel hardware.  Designed by San-Francisco-based Mission Workshop, the Arkiv system consists of a main rucksack-style bag offered in two sizes—a 20-liter-capacity Small and a 40-liter-capacity Large—and a series of satellite bags to choose from: A laptop case, a tool pouch, a cell phone holder, a folio for documents and writing materials, and a couple of add-on pockets meant to hold water bottles or random objects. There's even an optional additional shoulder strap, so you can turn any of the satellite bags into an independent one. We wish that the following video offered a little less style and a little more explanation...

Louis Vuitton Backpack

Louis Vuitton showcases this crazy New Age Traveler Backpack. Not only is the material choice quite extravagant, but the amount of details and little additions are just incredible. Of course all that detailed work is well reflected in the 54000 USD pricetag.

Topo Designs Backpack

We are in the midst of looking for a new bag, and we know the kids like the Herschel brand, but we love the look and clean design of Colorado’s Topo Designs. Made in America, no frills, classic but modern look; a nice departure from the too crammed vintage look. This feels 2012.
