YNOT: The Becket Backpack

This just in from Toronto’s YNOT:

“Handmade in Toronto & guaranteed for life, this deceptively versatile pack morphs in shape, function and style.

Its multifaceted closure options allows your gear to be carried securely inside and out. A floating liner and multiple roll top options keep your contents dry, while the external integrated holster lets you quickly get at your u-lock without opening your bag. Worried about the hot summer ahead? Never fear because the nylon & air-knit back pad provides added structure, sweat resistance and breathability.

You can also add an easily removable Becket Pocket Lid to expand your carrying capacity & personalize the look of your bag. Like all our packs, The Becket is Swoop System compatible for Laptop Sleeves and other swoop accessories coming soon! ”

REload Bags: Monster Track 15 Prize Bag
Monster_Track-15-RELOAD

Monster Track is this weekend in NYC and that means there will be a prize bag up for grabs. Not just any prize bag either. Philly’s REload Bags have been sponsoring the event for ten years and each year, their designs just keep getting better and better.

Rather than a messenger bag, Roland went with a Flight Pack. My personal favorite bag in REload’s line.

Now the question: who’s gonna win this?

Scott at Porcelain Rocket just uploaded photos of his newest frame bag project. It just so happens to be going on his own AM Peirce 29+ MTB. With all the hoopla surrounding the 3″ platform, I can’t wait to see what’s going to be at NAHBS later this month! Check out more of Scott’s work at the Porcelain Rocket Flickr.

Also, I can’t wait to see what’s going on that saddle bag support…

YNOT Flagship Store Launch

I’m so stoked for YNOT. I’ve watched this company grow over the years and I’m so happy to see them open a brick and mortar in Toronto.

“We are really excited to announce the Grand Opening of our official Toronto Flagship Store!

Situated just east of Trinity Bellwoods in the Arts & Design district of Queen West, the YNOT Store showcases our full line of tried and true messenger bags, backpacks, and iconic pedal straps. Be sure to check the YNOT Custom Build Bar, where you can customize staple YNOT bags or accessories. With integrated sewing machines onsite, professional YNOT bag makers will create these one-of-a-kind products right on the spot, just for you. Then, On February 21st we threw a big party to celebrate! We had a full house, and the machines at our custom build bar were going full tilt churning or custom YNOT cozys for everybody’s beers & mason jars!

We are super thankful for the awesome and supportive community we have here in our hometown of Toronto! This city has a wonderful bike scene full of amazing people, and we’re proud to be a part of it. The turnout made us feel super loved! Thanks Toronto!”

Bombtrack for Adidas: Street Crew Bags and Track Bike
Bombtrack_Adidas_01

This is by no means the first time a sneaker and bicycle company have worked together on a project, although I do think this capsule collection looks cohesive and clean. Bombtrack was approached by Adidas to design and produce 50 track bikes to coincide with the forthcoming Adidas Street Crew bag line.

These bikes can only be seen in a selected 32 Adidas Flagship Stores throughout Europe and Asia.

Knurled Welded™ Rolltops are made with our proprietary welding technology that combines RF welding with a mechanical interlock to create the toughest, lightest 100% waterproof bags. Each bag has a watertight rolltop closure for submersible water protection, a Hypalon® Molle loop system for expandability, and five-bar webbing haul straps for hand carrying. Go Farther. Stay Dryer. Guaranteed for Life.

The Knurled Welded line consists of Saddle Bag and Front Rack Duffle Rolltop. Knurled Welded Rolldtop Duffle and Saddle Bag Rolltop work on the bike and off. Both bags leave the hardware on the bike where it should be. The Result is a saddle bag and front rack duffle you can carry around.”
