A guide to the Animal AW15 Backpacks

21 Sep

What a summer it’s been. The weather has been fairly mediocre, but it hasn’t stopped us from making amazing memories… It’s time to get back to real life now though, and September presents the perfect opportunity to get a fresh start on things. 

Whether it’s going back to school, experiencing the joys of college for the first time or starting a new job, Animal has got your back with a solid range of beautifully designed backpacks.

We’ve got bags for all types of situations, here’s a little rundown of our bestsellers so far.

Clash - £24.00

The Clash backpack is a new style for 2015. The simplicity of its design makes it an absolute winner if you’re looking for something affordable that looks the part.

With 23 Litres of capacity, it has a padded laptop sleeve, a stationary compartment at the front, an internal mesh pocket and two side pockets as well. It comes in these three awesome colourways, one of which features in our British Camo collection for AW15.

Little details like the cord zip pulls and the bottom tab hook really make the Clash stand out ahead of the field.



Gain - £28.00

The Gain backpack is another brand new style for 2015. Its slim fit design gives it an elegance matched by no other. But don’t be fooled by its 18 Litre capacity, the Gain features a number of external and internal pockets, including a padded laptop sleeve and a stationary compartment on the front, so you’ll have plenty of space to store your gear.

Its sleek design and awesome patterned cord zip pulls make this bag feel like a modern classic, providing the goods for both your college and/or surf requirements.

Grad - £38.00

The Grad is the ultimate travel backpack. Made from cotton twill and polyester, it features adjustable shoulder straps as well as an adjustable chest strap.

What really makes this bag special is its water resistant base, which means you’re free to go explore, get dirty and chuck your bag in the mud without risking the well-being of your valuables. Best not to destroy that beautiful map of yours…

At 24 litres capacity, there’s plenty of space for your outdoors accessories with pockets on both sides and on the front of the bag, as well as a padded laptop sleeve inside.

Commuter- £40.00

This beautiful bag was designed for a perfect transition to the city. With its high quality waxed canvas and water-resistant leather like material, the Commuter will suit anyone looking for a little more upmarket feel.

At 12 Litres capacity, it’s a compact bag that will fit into any situation, and help you look the part.

It features a smart patterned lining as well as a rear zip pocket for passport or other flat valuables.


Prosper - £45

The Prosper is our feature skate-pack in the range. Bit far to skate to the skatepark? Or not allowed to skate around campus? No problem. With its vertical board carry straps you can take your board anywhere.

But that’s not the only thing making this bag special. It’s also hydro-pack compatible and has a waterproof bottom. As standard with Animal backpacks it is covered by our 2 year Animal bag guarantee, and comes with padded laptop sleeve, adjustable chest straps, stash pocket, cord zip pulls and elasticated side pockets.

The Prosper is pretty much packed full of rad features and looks great with its Merlot Red colourway.
