Made primarily of a technical canvas fabric, the Gucci Tiger Techpack is also one that’s clearly built for durability and strength. It’s also really lightweight, the inside composed of a nylon drawstring closure.
The reason why you would shell out almost three grand for the 45 cm by 32 cm backpack techpack is because of the additional touches that Creative Director Alessandro Michele added on, from the large mythical tiger head in the middle to the embroidered patches on both side pockets that include various kinds of flowers and a large red butterfly. Then there’s the webbing on the front straps as well as the techpack’s shoulder straps, an iconic signature from the Italian luxury house that’s now even more desirable than before.
On the centre of the flap you see the words ‘l’aveugle par amour‘, or ‘blind for love’. Which is also exactly how I feel about this techpack right now sans the ‘blind’ bit. It’s just love, love, love. Then there’s the mesh backing on the back of the techpack, roomy front pockets on each side and a smaller zip pocket where you’ll find the flap. In other words, it’s functional too.
