Able Archer

Described as “quiet and competent,” NYC-based Able Archer set out to make an understated, tough as nails camera bag set, an antidote to flashy, attention-grabbing carriers. Incorporating a more all-purpose design, offering room for phones, laptops and tablets, the line owes its no-nonsense looks to military equipment as well as “the daring work of international photojournalists, news writers and guerrilla filmmakers.” Mil-spec water resistant cotton canvas outer and nylon lining, padded laptop and device pockets, waterproof no-scratch zipper pulls and hidden passport and memory card pockets, the collection is made in Asia by a Singaporean military contractor. Five years in development, your current choices are a backpack, holdall, briefcase and crossbody bag, all in unflashy beige and olive.
