10" X 5" X 13" l ADJUSTABLE STRAPS l STRAP & STUD CLOSURE
ONE INTERIOR POCKET
Oh, the stories she could tell... Both my friend and her namesake, this fresh design literally made for departures! For years I've fielded inquiries about a CKD backpack, but when Leslie approached me about designing one for an impending trip to Cuba, I knuckled down and put several hours of contemplation and consultation into the most stylish, functional backpack I could conjure. Leslie (the friend) had two simple requirements: she needed to be able to pack her large camera as well as a water bottle. Beyond that I had a few criteria of my own: I cannot stand to fiddle with fussy closures, so my simple strap-to-stud solution allows you to easily slip the strap over the top of the bag to access the interior without undoing the strap. I added an interior pocket, because your cell phone and tube of lip protector should always be handy. Straps are adjustable, but the ends are sewn-in so there are no flyaway tails. Sleek, but with sufficient capacity for day trips lasting from dawn till dusk... and beyond.
