Fast Facts

  • WATSON's patented one-touch hard shell design is the first innovation in the bag category in 100 years (since zippers).
  • WATSON is carried by executives and business travellers worldwide, many from tech's highest growth companies (Airbnb, Facebook, Google, Autodesk, Uber, Linkedin, Dolby, Disney, and more.)
  • "Enclothed cognition" (how you feel in your clothes) has been scientifically attributed to an improvement in cognitive performance of up to 50%. Source.
  • 97% of consumers polled over three years (2016-2019) admitted to feeling unprofessional or childish in their existing backpack. Alternatively, WATSON's design and comfort are what our customers rave about most.
  • WATSON products are built to last a lifetime, and are made of 80% sustainable and renewable materials in Toronto, Canada.
  • Founded in 2017 after a successful Kickstarter by Val Crisp, a former stylist for the TV series SUITS and Team Canada athlete.
  • "In film, everything in the scene serves the purpose of the story. Using this insight to empower real people is my superpower." -Val Crisp, Founder

Our Philosophy and DNA

Real change requires risk.

WATSON was designed for the future of work, where fluidity between people, systems, and processes is paramount.

In that future, your bag has to be a lot more than it is today. It has to move between the spaces of your life the way you do - with intention and meaning. We need a new tool that speaks to our purpose, not just our performance.

We designed WATSON by throwing away everything we knew about the backpack.

The entire architecture of what we've created revolves around purpose. This is a carryall that respects the integrity of your life's tools, and the value of your life's work. Have perfect control over the things that matter.
