DESIGNER'S VOICE

ブランドを始めて数年したころ、ある知人に「もっと尖った商品は出さないの?」と言われたことがあります。PATHFINDER , CARGO , RUSHなど、これまで世の中になかった道具を作ってきた自分にとって、この言葉は正直言って心外でした。

野外道具である以上、誰でも無理なく安全に使えることが大事。そして同時に誰も見たことがないものを作るのが自分の使命。だから「丸いけど尖っている」商品がパーゴワークスが生み出す製品なのです。

この春に登場したBUDDYはまさにそんなバックパックです。一見オーセンティックなデザインで、道具としての汎用性も高い。だけどよく見れば基本構造からディテールに至るまでとてもユニーク。開発段階においてはシンプルな一本締めから始まりロールトップやバックサイドオープンまで、いくつかの試作&テストからはじめ、最終的にはRUSH28と同じ「高重心設計」を採用しました。開口部が体側に大きく開き、スタビライザーで重心を肩甲骨に寄せるというユニークな構造です。一方で素材は軽量かつタフ、誰もが気負わず使える風合いにこだわりました。さらに各部の収納力とアクセス性はRUSH28より向上させています。まさしく「丸いけど尖っている」バックパックの誕生です。

さあ、BUDDYという相棒を連れて、外遊びに出かけましょう~!

Pack and go!
