The Patriot: A Canadian Inspired Backpack

The Patriot: A Canadian Inspired Backpack

August 30, 2017

We are proud to announce a new milestone that we at Trublue cannot take full credit for.  This milestone is the new release of our third line of Backpacks, and it wouldn’t have been possible without you, our strong and loyal customers. 

Without your insightful feedback we would not have been able to build off the success of our Original and Original+ backpacks. We are honored to say that we have the most adventurous, courageous, unique and diverse fans and it is your pride and spirit which has driven us to build this Canadian inspired backpack collection, “The Patriot”.


When we sat down with the task of creating a new backpack, we did not want to simply improve on our existing products. We wanted to add to our product line and offer a different backpack with new features that we heard loud and clear from your reviews and testimonials! 

This new collection was born after months of hard work from passionate people like you. Therefore, we can say that The Patriot backpack has been inspired in you! Made with a strong water repellent material on the outside so that water will bead up and roll right off, The Patriot ensures that all your valuables remain dry. We have chosen the materials and design carefully so we can guarantee we have retained our lightweight construction for easy mobility and comfort.

We increased the organization capabilities tremendously by freeing up space in the main compartment and creating a dedicated laptop compartment accessible from a side zipper on the outside on the bag. Of course, we have kept this compartment fully padded to ensure your laptop is protected and you can carry it everywhere you go without worrying.

Inside we added an expandable sleeve to separate and hold your textbooks against your back while allowing for other loose items like sweaters, lunch bag, etc. to fit on the outer portion for a more ergonomically balanced design.

We also added two sided pockets for quick access to your every day on-the-go items like your water bottle.  Along with this, we redesigned the front pocket to fit larger items such as a laptop charger while adding organizational sleeves, all accessible through a magnetic flap. 

Whether you are going hiking, camping, for a picnic with friends, or to school, The Patriot backpack will be a great companion. All the features in this new backpack will allow you to commute comfortably while giving you enough space to bring all your essentials with you everywhere and ensure they will be protected from scratches.

As a bonus for all of you travel fans out there, if you like to mark the places you have visited, you will love this exclusive feature included in The Patriot. The leather tag inside your bag is a map of Canada, mark every province you travel with your backpack and create new memories for your collection. This Canadian backpack is truly yours to discover!

And that’s not it! There are tons of small Canadian inspired details and features hidden throughout the bag, such as the streets of Toronto in the interior design of our lining, and much more for you to discover, look closer!

We always love to hear from you and we value all your comments and feedback! Don’t forget to tag us on your adventures, we want to be in the loop of new destinations you visited!
