Strawfoot: Zip Wallet and Ride Wallet in Black MultiCam
Strawfoot_pouch-1

I love nesting pouches and zippered wallets, especially for riding. It’s nice to have one place to throw in your Co2, patch kit, multitool, debit card, cash, “safety” stuffs and even your phone. While there are hundreds of options out there, I’m currently using the Strawfoot Ride Wallet and Zip Wallet.

The Ride Wallet fits my Sony RX100mk3, or an iPhone 6, or even a Yashica T4 while the Zip Wallet fits cash, cards and my riding keys. Both are made by hand in Santa Cruz from weather-resistant cordura, a waterproof zipper, ripcord handles and have a secondary pocket on in inside. In stock now at Strawfoot.

See You at Grinduro!
strawfoot-5

Our friends at Strawfoot have been busy making some special kit bags for Grinduro.

I’ve been on the road from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz and I couldn’t roll through town without seeing what Strawfoot has been up to (and to get tacos.) Turns out, they’ve been working hard prepping for Grinduro

See you there?

Yanco’s Cetma Wrap and Bottle Holster
YANCO_Holster_Wrap-2

Yanco is a bag maker in Los Angeles probably known best for his collaboration project with Tracko, the Ramblin Roll. Over recent years however, he’s branched out into making specialty bags for the cycling community in LA.

Currently, he’s making everything from packraft bags, to handlebar pouches and little projects like this Cetma rack “wrap” he uses to make deliveries or on errands. It’s not a full-on bag and that’s the beauty of it. There’s little weight added and it stabilizes load. Also new to his product line is the bottle holster. While these can be found from numerous vendors, I liked his draw chord detail.

If you’re digging these bags, be sure to give him a follow on Instagram @jonesville and holler at him if you’d like one.

Mission Workshop: Hauser Hydration Backpack in Black MultiCam
blk-camo-lifestyle

The Hauser has been my go-to bikepacking, MTB riding and even commuter day pack since its inception. A highly versatile bag that’s both made in the USA and super comfortable just got more stylish (depending on how you feel about camo). The latest bag is made from black Multicam printed cordura. Multicam is a subtle print that looks even better splatted with mud… For those who always ask how I carry a camera on the bike, I use the 10L for DSLRs like the 5Dmkiii or rangefinders and the 14L for the Canon 1DX and two lenses.

Seagull Bags Relaunch and Add New Bags to the Flock
SeagullBags_NEW2


Seagull Bags took a short hiatus to figure things out and move the brand in a few new directions, resulting in two new bag models. One of which is a do-all backpack, stepping away from Seagull’s previous silhouettes of messenger style backpacks. The Nightshift V2 was designed with exploration in mind. Or just standard day-to-day use. Cargo straps make it easy to bring a few extra items along and interior pockets keep things organized. Also new to the lineup is the Trail Buddy hip pack (or shred pack as I like to call them). Carry your tools, snacks, camera, one-hitter or even a burrito in it and hit the trail without worrying about a hydro pack.

All of Seagull’s bags are made in Columbus, Ohio.
