Bags as a product may be utilitarian, but they are more about self expression than anything else. That’s probably why we feature so many different types of bags on Yanko Design. They’re storage, but they’re personal storage, which is why when you find the right bag that fits both your needs and your style, it’s such a great feeling.
We introduced a beautiful, modular bag only last month thinking it would be difficult to outshine, but here we are with something that pushes the boundaries of bag design a little further. The 48Hr Switch bag is just everything in one. Why choose modular when you can have a bag that shape-shifts to suit your needs? The 48Hr Switch allows you to switch between work, play and travel by putting a backpack, messenger-bag, and briefcase all in one. The idea is to provide 48 hours worth of storage, which means you’ve got dedicated space for your laptop, files, and clothes. If you’re a shutterbug, the 48Hr Switch makes itself incredibly lucrative by including divisions for your camera and lenses within the storage compartment too! If you ever feel like you’re struggling for space, the bag’s design can expand up to 70% extra to give you even more storage!
The 48Hr Switch is a winner on the design front too. It seamlessly transitions between backpack and briefcase with absolute ease. It does this by giving the bag a dual-face design. This means the bag can be used front-facing as a backpack, and when you flip it over, the back face is sideways oriented, allowing it to become a dapper messenger bag or briefcase! Its clever design allows you to add or remove straps to change its avatar on the outside, and does the same on the inside too, by providing a great amount of segregation as well as a partitioning system if you opt for it. The bag’s made from a combo of full grain leather and British cotton canvas to give it an aesthetic that beautifully combine retro as well as urban sensibilities.
Like we said, bags are about mirroring your character and about you making a personal statement. Which is why finding the right bag to suit your style as well as lifestyle is such a great feeling… and we here at Yanko know we can help you discover the perfect bag!
