Manta Modern Backpack and Shoulder Bag

If you’re looking for a daily companion to haul all your gear around, check out Manta, a brand new design from Basel, Switzerland-based diiis designstudio. You can mix it up and wear it as a backpack or as a shoulder bag, depending on how you adjust the straps.


Handmade in their native Switzerland, the European leather bag isn’t bulky so it clings to your body perfectly.




The main compartment faces your back so all of your contents remain secure as you’re walking around. A separate outer compartment provides extra space.
