  • Novara Gotham Backpack features a wide-mouth opening so you can easily pack work clothing, groceries from the market or everyday essentials like a laptop or tablet
  • Made from PVC-free material, the polyurethane coated nylon shields contents from the elements
  • Top zippered opening flap is held tightly closed for weather-resistance when side buckles are cinched tight; loosening buckles still allows access to main zip opening
