Over ver.5 backpack


The nylon thread’s high denier count (840 denier) used for the OVER ver.5 urban-style backpack guarantees water resistance, which comes useful in rainy cities like Tokyo or London, a minimum of weight (770g), a decisive factor in larger cities, where people often have to commute more than two hours a day, and a maximum of durability: the high density of the yarn toughens and strengthens the fabric.

Inside pockets that can be zipped help you to avoid clutter, and drawcords help keeping bulky luggage in place.

The backpack can also be opened via a large zip on its side, useful when you need to tug out that jacket on the bottom.

The front pocket is convenient for items you need to acess quickly, like tissues, mints or paper and pen.

The top flap of the backpack also comes with a zipped pocket.

The side pockets can be reached without taking the backpack off.

You can attach key chains or a carabiner onto the leather tag on the front.

Broad Nylon straps ensure perfect weight distribution and comfort.

The backpack comes in black, beige, renga (red), green, sax (lightblue) and navy.

Backpacks were already used in the stone ages, when hunters carried their prey home in bags placed on their backs. These days backpacks are associated with students, but in the light of many professionals ditching cars in favour for more ecological means of transportation, like public transport or bikes, backpacks are more popular than ever.

Recent years saw an increasing trend for urban backpacks, which come with a different set of requirements than a typical outdoor backpack. Urban backpacks for example don’t require aluminium frames or don’t need to be able to hold more than 10 kg of luggage, but have other sophisticated design needs: materials and colours play a bigger role, they have to match the wearer’s wardrobe and be easy to hoist and remove.

The Masterpiece store was founded in 1994, offering a variety of accessories, from wallets to large carryalls, when backpacks were not yet considered stylish accessories for men: the Masterpiece accessories were pioneers in that regard.

Since then various models in different colours and sizes have been added to the collection, combining traditional materials with modern fabrics to ensure maximum durability, water resistance and minimum weight.

Based in Osaka, all products are being manufactured in Japan, utilising traditional Japanese craftsmanship and artisanship.
