We just recieved our two latest bag related products, and man are we stoked. We've now got a slimmer more minimalist backpack and a handy dandy tool pouch for your consumption and enjoyment.
First up is the new backpack that we're creatively calling the Low Profile. (we were going to call it the Low-Pro but were pretty sure we'd get a cease and desist from Lowe Pro, so we didn't) It has basically the same outer configuration as the Captain Phil, but in a slimmer (1100cu), lighter, easier to see over your shoulder configuration.
This bag has been in the works for over a year now, and has become the go to for when I don't need a bunch of stuff, commuting, heading out for a long ride, or racing alleycats.
Constructed from water proof material, with a zipper pocket in the hood for easy secure access
adjustable sternum straps, removeable waist straps, and an included Iphone compatible cell holster
It features our standard backpack outer arrangement with a zip in the hood, magazine pocket, two flap pockets that are great for Ipods or Iphones, a central zipper pocket with a card holder, pen slots, and two attachment points
The Low Profile has a bit different construction on the inside than the Captain Phil, with two side pockets and the lack of a dry bag. The outside material is waterproof, but the seams aren't. I've ridden with it in several downpours and there will be a little seepage at the seams on the bottom of the bag, but it's never been a big deal nor really bummed me out, and we like this more "finished" interior for a bag of this size and intended use.
It's not for living out of like the Phil, it's for when your're on a mission.
The best part though is the price, only $89 MSRP. The best value in the game!
We also received our first run of tool pouches, and couldn't be happier with them. There's nothing really fancy going on, just an affordable place to put your junk in a well made cordura package.
Both are available now, so jump on it.
