The Ol’ Drawstring Backpack Gets Reinvented

 |  |  |  August 2, 2013

Drawstring backpacks are often lightweight, so they’re not a pain to carry around. They’re also easy to put away when you’re done using them, since all you have to do is fold it up and tuck it in your closet.

The big annoyance with these bags, though, is how the shoulder loops eventually lose their symmetry, putting more weight on one shoulder compared to the other.  People who use drawstring backpacks can relate. If they use lopsided packs often enough, they’ll eventually begin to feel the discomfort physically, too.


Good thing the guys at mochibags decided to rethink this basic bag. The redesign makes sure that the “shoulder loops stay even and balanced.” Its makers are so confident in their redesigned product, that they add the guarantee that this is for “forever.”

So what makes this drawstring backpack different from the typical one? Well, for starters, it has “channel anchored” drawstrings which stay put and stay balanced. The channels also make it easy to open and close the bag. It also sports thick cords and no visible knots to make it feel more comfortable on your shoulders.

The mochibag Drawstring Backpack is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $25(USD) will get you one of your very own.
