Simple yet elegant for urban commutes, the Alite waxed-canvas Shifter Pack features a padded laptop sleeve with side zipper, a roll top that can hold extra clothes, and a mesh back for comfort.


The Shifter Pack is a multi-purpose pack that is designed to fit the needs of urban commuters and day trippers alike. Offering a capacity of 31 liters, this pack can easily carry laptops, books, maps, clothing everything you need for a day exploring the city, checking out an all-day music festival, or just getting to your office in the morning. The Shifter Pack is made of lightweight, water resistant waxed kodra, and weighs in at just over two pounds. It has an expanded roll top, so you can stuff your extra clothing layers into the top of the bag. We even added an extra side zipper that offers access to a special, padded laptop pocket. The Shifter offers double-front pockets for additional storage. The adjustable, padded shoulder straps were made to be super comfortable, and include reflectors for when you're maneuvering in the dark. And to keep your temperature in check, the Shifter has a vented mesh backing that lets your gear and your skin breath.
