This is the bag for those light days for a day ride or a quick jaunt to the park when a hip bag is too small but a messenger bag is too much. Carry a sandwich, a map, an extra shirt, a camera, your ebook, a drink, an extra tube and still have room thanks to the diagonal expandable pleat. The best part of the patent pending Bandolier is that you can always easily access either pouch on the fly without ever taking off the bag or dismounting from your bike by just swinging the bag over your shoulder. Cinch it up like a messenger bag and it stays in place while you ride. The bag is compact enough to wear under a jacket, particularly useful if you get caught in bad weather. But if you do get caught off guard the bandolier is made of tough water-resistant poly duck that is vinyl backed with a large interior pocket made of the same stuff.
We're based in Brooklyn and our product is purposely made with heart in Brooklyn in special limited quantities to preserve quality by a bag craftsman with over twenty years of experience. We're trying to make something new not just the same old same old. We want to make something that doesn't exist or make it better and smarter. Innovate. We want to have a reason for what we make to exist and not just a prettier version of what's out there. We want to add to the conversation. We want to bring something new. We make what we want and what we need. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it, we're choosing to do it ourselves on our own terms. We hope that what makes sense to us, makes sense to you.
Our aim is to make quality pieces that are smart, simple, functional, durable, and versatile - the right piece for the right moment. It's not about our bag; it's about our needs.
"To the extent “Brooklyn” now designates more than a mere landmass, it means: small-batch production, urban husbandry, period facial hair, a fixed-gear bicycle, and “Girls.” And now, of course, you can’t travel to the bottom of the South China Sea without first passing through “the Brooklyn of the Malacca Strait,” or some equivalent." — The New York Times
Shopping local is more than a trend — it is the future of a sustainable economy. Studies show that when you purchase products from small local businesses, 68% of the profits go back into that business' local economy, creating more jobs, opportunity and growth. However, when you purchase items from a larger company, only 43% of the profits go back into the community — the rest is wasted on the bloat accrued by such a large entity and, ultimately, into the pockets of shareholders. Where would you rather put your dollars?
