The Radian is a 42-liter pack designed to seamlessly navigate almost any environment with all the gear required for longer journeys. The elegance of The Radian lies in its configuration. The entire front panel zips open so that it can be packed flat like a suitcase, while at the same time maintaining the classic Mission Workshop roll-top closure for quick access to essential gear. (Roll top can be used with or without velcro.)
The Radian has dedicated laptop, iPad, and water bottle pockets so that it can be used as a single-bag solution for extended trips -- replacing a rolling suitcase and pack/messenger combo.
The Radian can either be carried onboard or checked for airline travel. Its dimensions are within the carry-on guidelines for many airlines and its shoulder straps can be concealed with a hidden zippered panel when being checked.
Although The Radian has a clean minimalist silhouette that blends perfectly with the cityscape, it is extremely durable and weatherproof allowing it to excel in rugged backcountry and off-the-beaten-path travel destinations. It was specifically designed without large exterior branding elements, bright colors, or a lot of exterior straps for a lowkey look that doesn’t shout “tourist”.
The main body of the pack is made from either 500D black camo Multicam® Cordura® or Mission Workshop’s advanced HT500 textile. HT500 incorporates high-tenacity yarn resulting in a refined lightweight fabric that is abrasion and tear-resistant. HT500 also has a special water-resistant coating that gives it extra structure and allows it to patina and naturally distress with age similar to leather or waxed cotton.
