Everyone can use a good backpack, whether it’s for a laptop, extra layers, water, or all of those things at once. What you need is something that’s practical, good quality and stylish. At bob greens we’re very pleased to be stocking backpacks by Doughnut, which tick all those boxes – well made, well designed (and decently priced).
Doughnut was started in 2007 by two students who met at University in Hong Kong. They started out designing backpacks for fun in their family owned factory. In the years since the brand has grown into a successful business through word of mouth and reputation, making high quality hand crafted backpacks, bag accessories and other travel accessories and is now stocked in over 25 countries.
Doughnut has a very strong following in Asia, and launched in Europe a few years ago, doing a collaboration with Hikerdelic in 2018. The mix of heritage and contemporary inspired designs, technical mountaineering influences, well thought out features, quality fabrics and range of colours make for bags that are functional, designed for modern life, and look fantastic.
Using organic tanned leather details, water repellent fabrics like Nylon and Cordura, padded straps, and interiors stuffed with useful pockets, the quality has to be seen to be believed. Doughnut are so confident about their backpacks they come with a three year warranty covering normal wear and tear and day to day use faults.
It’s no wonder Proper Mag described them as “very good bags which you can seriously rely on” and the welldresseddad blog reviewed them as “a great backpack…[with] features that put more expensive packs to shame“.
There are too many highlight in Doughnut’s range of styles to mention them all, but here at bob greens we are particular fans of the heritage inspired Colorado range, with its secured waterproof side zip access to the main compartment and rope detail fastening, and the roll-top Christopher backpack, with a contemporary look, multiple internal pockets and 3 way access to the main compartment.
