Twelve Forge is our most advanced, most sustainable product offering to date. The design is optimised to be more comfortable when worn & more serviceable without compromise of function or style.
The body fabric is a specially selected 220gsm ultra-dry waxed cotton canvas from British Millerain. They’re fabrics are world renowned since 1880. The fabric is robust & durable yet lightweight & water repellent. The fabric will develop its own unique patina with use over time, slowly becoming individually yours.
The base panels are super tough 1000 denier military grade Cordura nylon so if you put the bag down on a wet floor, the contents stay dry.
The zips are waterproof YKK Aquaguard. They are smooth in operation, reliable in performance & offer easy access to the main compartment, front pocket & new ‘secret’ valuables pocket. The pullers feature high performance Dyneema cord extensions for easy location & secure opening/closing.
Inside the main compartment is a 4mm closed cell foam padded laptop sleeve. This provides protective storage for 15 inch & 13 inch devices. Woven elastic retaining straps act to secure the corners of larger devices without additional bulk of padding which would hinder access to smaller laptops or tablets.
Inside the front pocket is body fabric lining plus a signature high definition ‘British Built’ woven label. The front pocket is handy for small items such as keys, ID swipe cards, note pads, pens or anything you like to have quick access to.
A new feature on the back panel is a ‘secret’ valuables pocket – good for passport, travel documents, tickets or anything else you’d really rather not lose!
An elasticated bottle pocket features on the outside which doubles to offer alternative storage for a folded umbrella too.
The twin shoulder straps are 50mm cotton webbing for ultimate in luxurious hand feel, secure adjustment & refined finish. Leather trim has been eliminated, making the Forge backpack vegan friendly. The lower body straps are 25mm cotton webbing, secured into an improved fit fabric triangle in the lower corners. The straps are secured & easily adjusted through stainless steel 25mm ladderlocks.
The backpack is finished with our logo in a woven label, securely stitched down to again reduce weight without compromising looks.
We’ve designed this backpack to be our best yet – Forge will carry you through your working day, into the gym & away for the weekend.
