The Cote&Ciel Isar Rucksack, Form & Function Meet

The Cote&Ciel Isar Rucksack, Form & Function Meet

The Cote & Ciel Isar Rucksack is an intriguing take on the high-end, function-forward backpack, coming in three different sizes – S, M and L – with a variety of different materials. 

We reviewed the EcoYarn in black, which comes in a durable polyester fabric that was carefully developed through sustainable processes and sports a water repellent finish. Large YKK zips add to the dramatic visuals, while lightweight aluminium hardware and a discrete grey polyester twill, used for the interior fabric, help soften and smooth the overall aesthetic. 

Look past its architectural form and you’ll see that the Isar is just as intriguing on the inside, aiming for exceptional ergonomics. Within the discrete grey interior are two main compartments for you to categorise your load, split between a padded laptop pocket towards the back, able to fit devices up to 15 inches, and a duffle-like area at the front.

The front, spacious and versatile, is accessible through the shark fin shape on the outside, easy to access when you simply loosen two compressions straps. This grants you access to two flaps concealing chunky YKK zippers, fully opening the front compartment and allowing you to easily grab anything stored inside. Importantly, the space isn’t too deep so you can avoid excess clutter.

Two straps have been included for securing special items inside, ensuring they stay firmly in place and don’t shake around too much whenever you’re on the move. Smaller items can be placed in one of two zippered pockets to help keep clutter to a minimum.

The use of compression straps allow you to transform the bag to suit your needs, keeping the front pocket tight and streamlined or opening it up to increase volume. Whether your packing light or heavy, the compression straps are there to adjust to your load the way that’s best for you.

Anyone looking for a uniquely designed backpack that offers the best in both form and function will be very satisfied with the Cote & Ciel Isar Rucksack. Not only has a highly considered design made for a very practical solution to common carry issues, but the distinctive shape exudes sophistication, striking a delicate balance between high-fashion and supreme comfort.

Entirely leather free, the vegan Bellroy Venture Sling is made from 100% recycled, water resistant woven fabric and features a generous amount of padding to protect cargo at all times. Reiterating Bellroy’s smart use of sturdy premium materials, the Venture Sling is completed by YKK water resistant zippers and strong, intuitive quick-release buckles that sit on either side of the bag to allow flexibility for the wide, adjustable strap letting you carry in the exact way that’s right for you.

The Bellroy Venture Sling is firm and structured on the outside, allowing the bag to keep shape whether you’re compressing it for a tighter profile, or expanding the gusset for more space. The specific placing of the buckles is new for Bellroy, and it clearly pays off, allowing for easy release around the sides of the bag for a better overall experience, and to help keep the natural tension of the bag for a tighter, slimmer silhouette.
