The Bellroy Studio Backpack, A Great Option For Urban Commuters

Bellroy are one of the most dependable names in the carry world, and they keep that reputation flowing beautifully with the slim, streamlined Bellroy Studio Backpack. Designed for urban settings, such as the daily commute and city cycling, it’s a simple but extremely effective backpack built to both stand the test of time, and look incredibly stylish while doing so.



With an eye-catching aesthetic, the Bellroy Studio Backpack takes design cues from the Bellroy Shift Backpack and refines them to better incorporate an ingenious flap top for superior water protection. Complementing this are numerous premium hide leather accents, made from a leather that has been gold-rated according to the Leather Working Group environmental protocols, and dyed through so they age gracefully with your adventures.

A non-toxic soft woven polyester is used for the shell of the Bellroy Studio Backpack, worked to feel a bit like a cotton canvas, but sturdy and dependable enough with exceptional durability and water resistance. Bellroy’s characteristically high standard of quality can be found all throughout the exterior, from the standard nylon webbing used to the haul handle to the high level of organisation for each exterior pocket.

This is most obvious in the small zippered compartment behind the front panel, perfect for both smaller and larger items that you may want to keep separate from the main cargo. Inside here you’ll find two pen slots, as well as a bigger slot for something like a wallet or coin pouch, and Bellroy’s signature key clip.

Extra comfort comes from the simple yet highly functional and breathable back panel, with padded shoulder straps that have been stitched exceptionally well, worked in a way that’s slightly angled for a better fit around the shoulder. Strap keeps are included to keep it all nice and tidy, again reiterating Bellroy’s penchant for soft, seamless carry solution.

The defining design choice here is the mechanism by which the flap top locks into place. Instead of using a clip or something similar, Bellroy has chosen a Fidlock magnetic clasp, ensuring that no accidental openings are possible and that the only way to open the flap is to pull down.

Open the flap and you’ll find a big bucket opening that provides clear visibility to the main cargo at all times, which is organised across various interior pockets including two deep soft mesh pockets on either side, perfect for things like sunglasses or an umbrella.

A mesh zippered pocket is also here for smaller bits and pieces, but the main chamber is a padded sleeve that would easily fit most 15-inch laptops, protected by a soft fabric and an elevation of 1-inch from the base of the bag.

Big bucket opening for clear visibility to all of your main gear. Stretchy mesh zippered pocket for smaller bits and pieces. Two stretchy mesh side pockets, small but functional for smaller water bottles or sunglasses.

The Bellroy Studio Backpack is a head-turning, design-forward carry solution perfect for the daily commute or similar urban adventures. With an inventive way of incorporating the defining flaptop, Bellroy’s signatures can be found all across the bag, making this the ideal carry solution for anyone who values the delicate balance between fashion and function.
