The Roald Ground Backpack by Sandqvist is a classically styled Scandinavian hiking carry-all with a 17 litre capacity, a padded laptop compartment and two outer pockets.
Sandqvist named the backpack after the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen – the first person to have reached both poles and the leader of the first expedition to have reached the South Pole.
Each Roald Ground Backpack is made from poly-cotton blend fabric and features leather fasteners and tags throughout. The shoulder straps are padded for periods of extended wear and there’s an additional inner pocket for passports and valuables.
