A collaboration between The Hill-Side, a clothing and accessories brand founded in Brookyn, and Woorich, the Original Outdoor Clothing Company, has resulted in the must-have bags for fall.
The new lineup includes a daypack, tote bag, backpack, briefcase, and weekender bag—all built tough and ready to handle your active lifestyle.
Emil and Sandy Corsillo are the two brothers who founded Hill-Side in 2009. They said teaming their products with Woolrich is a good match because “Woolrich is synonymous with quality design and construction,” said Emil. He says New York City commuters inspired the new collection of bags.
“The toughest commuters in the world are found in New York,” he said. “When you’re commuting in the city, you need a bag that is versatile and tough; and all of your essentials need to integrate seamlessly and effortlessly.”
Of course, you don’t have to live in New York to appreciate the benefits of these bags. They are universal in appeal.
Here’s a quick look at the new products:
The Hill-Side for Woolrich Daypack, $95
Classic teardrop-shaped pack crafted out of a heavyweight polyester canvas. There’s an easy-access front-zippered pocket with a waterproof zipper. The handles and straps are made out of herringbone-weave nylon—strong and fray-resistant. The adjustable backpack straps allow for a comfortable fit. Plus, whatever you put inside will stay dry. The padded laptop sleeve can hold a laptop up to 13” or a tablet.
The Hill-Side for Woolrich Tote Bag, $125
You’ll love the roominess of this bag. You can toss in your lunch and change of clothes, as well as securely store your laptop. It has the same durability of the daypack, but is larger with two-zipped interior back wall pockets, three interior neoprene slip pockets, and a full-width slip pocket with Velcro-tabbed closure.
The Hill-Side for Woolrich Backpack, $150
This backpack is tough and ready to hold enough gear to last through a weekend on the trail. There are pockets and slots for water bottles and umbrellas, waterproof zippers, interior pockets, padded mesh back panel and shoulder straps, and side cinch closures to minimize bulk.
The Hill-Side for Woolrich Briefcase, $150
There’s plenty of room to secure mobile devices, calculator, pens, laptop and other items. There are two snap-closure side pockets that can hold water bottles and other small items.
The Hill-Side for Woolrich Weekender Bag, $175
The main compartment expands, so there’s room for everything you want to fit inside. There’s also a padded sleeve to keep your laptop safe, nylon herringbone handles with snap-closure handle wrap, and compression straps that cinch the bag when not fully packed.
