Two of my favorite companies came together and designed a new bag for the House Industries Velo collection. These made in Portland leather saddle bags thread through your saddle loops and come with the House insignia embossed into the soft, horween leather.

See more at House, or if you’re in Portland or Los Angeles, swing through the Tanner Goods stores to see them in person.

SSCY Tack Sling Bag
SSCY

I’ve been using the normal SSCY Tack bag for a day pack during cross races and MTB rides where I have to drive to the trail. Its large size makes it easy to drop helmets, shoes and kits into the main compartment and the smaller pockets hold tools, snacks and other misc items.

What’s best about the Tack is it transforms from a tote to a backpack with just two clamps… I’ll elaborate more when I actually review mine. For now, let’s check out the new Tack Sling Bag.

All the versatility of the Tack, but now, in a sling form, allowing you to strap packages, boxes and yes, wheels to the pack. All of this, made in NYC.
