In three words

Exclusive. Vegan. Utilitarian.

What is it?

Only available in Sandqvist’s LondonParis and Götgatan stores, the Adam messenger bag is an in-store only exclusive.

The Adam is part of Sandqvist’s Aerial series, a vegan line made from 100% recycled materials from post-consumer waste ballistic polyester. This makes the bag really strong, with ballistic weave originally designed for body armour.

The Adam messenger bag is great if you’re commuting to work or want a slightly bigger everyday bag. It’s water resistant and comfortable. Inside the main compartment you’ll find a 13″ laptop compartment. There are two inner slip pockets within the main compartment, and an internal zipper pockets. On the side are two pockets with lids held in place with quick release buckles. The main compartment is secured with a zipper, and a lid with two quick release buckles offers additional security.

An adjustable and removable shoulder strap allows you to carry it two ways, and a capacity of up to 10 litres makes it a great commuter bag. It comes in two colours: black or dusty green.

Why we love it

We’re big fans of Sandqvist’s design and sustainability ethos. We like that their bags are affordable and will last. In designing this bag, form and function have been equally taken into account. The Adam (despite the name) feels quite unisex to us, and being not too bulky will suit most frames. We also really like that this bag is made from recycled post-consumer waste, is completely vegan and that working conditions at the manufacturers have been audited.

What will it fit? 

Great as an everyday bag, this backpack will fit a 13 inch laptop and charger, wallet, keys, multiple books and notepads, stationery, water bottle, snacks and still have room for more. If you’re going away for a night you could squeeze in a change of clothes, plus your laptop, personal items and a book but it’s a little too small to use as a weekender bag.

Final thoughts

Nicely made and designed, we really like how versatile The Adam by Sandqvist is. It’s a perfect bag if you’re after a functional and unisex bag that you just want to throw everything into without too much thought. The adjustable and removable shoulder strap makes it a perfect cycling or commuting bag.
