Cooper gives you three different bags from one basic body: messenger bag, backpack, and satchel. All versions are lined and feature eight large pockets, magnetic closures, and hardware details.

The messenger bag (version 1) has an adjustable cross-body strap. The backpack (version 2) has two shoulder straps and a hang loop. The two-handled satchel (version 3) does double duty as a bike pannier.

Designed by Laura Collins of Pansy Maiden.

ALSO PICTURED: The Albion Coat and The Negroni Shirt.
