The classics never go out of style, they just get a facelift, or in this case, a splash of color. In the years that Denver’s Topo Designs has been in business, they’ve striven for American-made portage that has a modern façade with a classic silhouette. All of their bags are manufactured in a LEED-certified facility at the foothills of the Rockies and while their bags aren’t designed specifically for cycling, they are versatile, durable and innovative.
I had the opportunity to visit Topo’s design and shipping facilities while I was in Denver and was immediately pulling out my card to make some purchases. From a new (out soon) backpack that stuffs into a pocket, padded laptop carriers (out soon), to their classic Klettersack backpack, nesting bags and even their accessories like the Web Belt and Liberty co-branded water bottle, I put a dent in my checking account!
I’ve honestly never purchased them before because I never saw anything Topo made in person. In this case, seeing and feeling was believing. With high-quality, wear-reducing cordura on the bottoms of their bags, you’ll have them for years with no issues.

I like water bottles with a bit of character and the newest offering from Peonfx has just that. Scoop up one here.
Oh man, this is too good. Damn, G+D’s products sell out fast…
Sorry guys, this post was supposed to go up yesterday afternoon when they were still in stock!
To celebrate the summer cycling events approaching, MASH has some new gear. The Olympic Cycling shirt and new Purist bottles are gonna be a hit. Check out more at the MASH Shop.
Gage + DeSoto wants to encourage NY’rs to rely on ice cubes, rather than air conditioning to keep cool this summer with these new water bottles. Swoop some up now at the G+D Web Shop.
Can’t afford a slick Ti or stainless rig but love Firefly? Pick up one of these Purist bidons. I can’t find a link on their site, but my guess is that they’ll shop up on products page. You’ve got to appreciate the humor in the post tagline!
