Over all this is a very minimalist backpack, which is common for Bellroy – there isn’t a ton of organization, and what is there is thoughtfully placed. One thing to note is the color scheme of “lunar” with its yellow highlights. We are big fans.

Bellroy made The Melbourne backpack out of recycled materials , which is something we really support here at Nomad’s Nation. Being made of plastic, it has a texture which feels like plastic -denim. imagine if your jeans were made of little strands of plastic bottles.


Get the Bellroy Melbourne Backpack if…

✅ You are a business professional, but you’re sick of matte black everything.

✅ You are a minimalist

✅ You dig the design – it’s a modern backpack with an old-school design.

Probably best known for their wallets, Bellroy has been expanding their company to backpacks and every day carry items. Based out of Australia, their mission of sustainability is quite impressive – most of their products are made of recycled materials and “eco friendly leather” ( they mean they use less water and chemicals in the tanning process)
