Welcome to the 3rd edition of Gentleman Within’s Style Spotlight, where I highlight noteworthy brands and products that should be on your radar.
Style Spotlight Vol. 3 features the Mission Workshop weatherproof laptop backpack.
THE MISSION WORKSHOP RHAKE BACKPACK
Mission Workshop‘s Rhake WX is the next iteration of the best-selling original Rhake VX. Instead of the VX-21 fabric from Dimension Polyant®, the WX features an advanced waxed canvas fabric from Fairfield Textile.
It’s built to hold everything you need for work, play, and the occasional overnight. Purpose-built pockets designed for your laptop computer, iPad, phone, chargers, keys, sunglasses, and water bottle.
Additionally, the Rhake WX has a weatherproof 22-liter main roll-top compartment that’s adjustable to whatever gear you need to carry. All in all, it’s a pretty rugged bag that doesn’t skimp on style either. You can also swap accessories like the 1″ Cobra Set buckles for added functionality and coolness.
The Rhake WX’s unique construction makes it ultra durable and weatherproof. The canvas material is thick and feels substantial like it can take a beating whether you’re traversing mountains or traveling through Oceania.
Like all Mission Workshop backpacks, The Rhake : WX is built with two-layer weatherproof construction to keep your gear safe and dry. For added versatility and customization, the shoulder straps are equipped with two Arkiv rails for attaching small accessories.
The Martexin Waxed finish from Fairfield Textile is made with 10oz Army Duck Canvas. This weatherproof canvas will show unique wear patterns that reflect daily use.

That’s the low down on the Mission Workshop Rhake WX backpack. As with all Mission Workshop products, the Rhake WX is built to endure and Guaranteed Forever, a promise seldom made in the apparel industry.
