REBEL backpack has a non-rigid structure, can extend to accommodate wide items such as 15 inch laptop and A4 folders.
The shoulder strap design is derived from WWII Swiss Army "Salt & Pepper" rucksack, using metal pin buckles to adjust the length. The straps can be fully detached for easy maintenance / replacement.
You can even leave only one shoulder strap on, turning REBEL backpack into a large sling rucksack, which can slide to the front allowing access to front & side pocket items.
Left & right side pocket zipper openings are located at the rear end of the backpack. The pockets extent from the sides to the front, creating a expendable pocket space.
Even when the pockets are filled, they still don't look like protruding pockets, but rather like the backpack itself is fully packed.
Other than the side pockets, REBEL also have large 3D front pocket (can fit 500ml water bottle) and 3D top flap pocket (for notebook, sunglasses, GoPro...etc.)
The interior back panel is lined with Velcro-compatible "medical grade durable microfiber", which doesn't develop torn frizzy surfaces like common Velcro loop fabrics. You can quickly attach WOTANCRAFT "Interior Module" Velcro-based accessories, personalizing your backpack interior.
With the WOTANCRAFT MAGICIAN camera wrap, you can quickly wrap up your camera gear and throw it into the backpack, a convenient solution for outdoors travelling.
The circumference of REBEL fits XS size WOTANCRAFT "Waterproof camera insert". The insert is made of mil-spec hovercraft mesh fabric, edges sealed with vacuum-forming compression. Once the YKK Aquaguard ® zippers are fully closed, the WOTANCRAFT camera insert can maintain up to 3 mins of air-tight condition even when submerged in water.

Imagine a piece of military grade tear-resistant Cordura ® canvas, the pinnacle of ultra-strength fabric since its invention in WWII, capable of gradually developing water-washed fading like Japanese raw denim.
In 2014, WOTANCRAFT developed what we nicknamed the “FOG CAMO”, a 500 Denier Cordura ® fabric made of heat resistant / ultra-strength Nylon 6,6 yarn, with waxed treatment and underside water-repellant PU coating. The fabric is printed with random fog-like camouflage patterns, based on WOTANCRAFT’s original design.
Unlike most Cordura ® bags, FOG CAMO bag owners can enjoy the process of "bag aging".
The surface wax coating will develop scuff marks, and the wax substance caught within the weave cavity will have different color depth against the wax scuffed away over time. This gives the FOG CAMO a "denim-fade” pattern, while functional strength of the fabric remain uncompromised.
To arrive at these comprehensive qualities, WOTANCRAFT FOG CAMO canvas costs 5 times more than regular Cordura ®. It is our signature material true to the essence of WOTANCRAFT: tough, utilitarian, with a heavy vintage sensation.
WOTANCRAFT’s vegetable-tanned full-grain cowhide leather has a distinctive battle-distressed look, which accentuates the bag with an “out of the ashes” antique vibe.
When you bend the leather, the oil among the leather fibers will be squeezed and shift, causing the surface to manifest a temporary dual-tone color. This is called the "Pull-Up effect", which greatly enriches the character of our cowhide.
Pull-up effect color shifts, leather patina development, coupled with the natural skin pores of thick full-grain leather… these remarkable features give our leather an iconic "vintage soul", which is like nothing you've seen in common chrome-tanned leather materials.
WOTANCRAFT knew from our camera bag making history that to build a reliable heavy duty bag, the generic poly or cotton based thread simply wouldn't hold.
We've adapted the "Bonded Nylon" thread commonly used for leather boots or saddles, a thread type based off the ultra tenacity Nylon 6,6 yarn with protective coating against chemical and elemental corrosion, designed for leather products that needs to sustain use and abuse.
