North St. Bags, handmade out of Portland Oregon, added two new rolltops to their line this spring: the Davis 20L and the Flanders 32L. Both bags utilize a VX-21 X-Pack drop liner for increased weather resistance and everyone’s favorite burly 1000D Cordura brand nylon on the outside for longevity and general PNW grit.
While the Flanders has a handful more features than the Davis, it’s easiest to think of them as big brother little brother. Same silhouette, same build, materials, access, etc.
I’ve been all over the last three months and have used the Flanders as my daily carry for chores, hotel stays, and as my personal bag on a road trip across the country to my new home in RVA. These bags are built to last and are up for whatever, so let’s get into it.
