Weekend bag dump

I’m a pretty picky lady when it comes to bags. I have no shame in admitting I’m the sort that likes to carry a heap of stuff with me. Probably too much sometimes, but hey, I tend to wander and I like to be prepared. Between snacks, bevies and a change of clothes that usually comes to and from work with me, I had been pretty pleased with the overall volume of our medium Captain Phil. But last week I took the jump to our newest little addition, the Low Profile and, admittedly, I was thinking I may need to cut down on the crap I carried in order to maintain a comfortable load. Wrong-o. This little champ may just be my new fav. Being a narrow shouldered lass, I get the feeling with some cycling bags that I’m strapping on the Ghostbuster’s proton pack. Especially when loaded, it can be tricky for me to find a balance between something that fits my profile and can still be loaded with happy fun time necessities and sit low enough to see over my shoulder. So far, I’m pretty sweet on this little number.

This particular beast is a proto. We made some final revisions to the pocket layout and the finish which I find to be 40% more badass than this guy.

Some late night river scrambling left me carting around some sand all weekend. As you can see, the side pockets are pretty perfect to stash empties.

The contents I awoke to Sunday morning consisted of the following assortment, which is a pretty fair smattering, more or less, of its contents on any given day:

Rain jacket, shoes, wool, cycling hat, U-lock, Duluth Pack coozie, waterbottle, notebook, empty sixer, empty bourbon, empties, keys, chapstick, coughdrops, sunscreen, knife, lipstick, marker, ear buds, fix-a-flat ready seatbag, gigantic girly wallet, spare change, matches, book, our new tool pouch which usually is housing my Pinhead tool, spoke wrenches, Crank Bros tool, extra tubes for 700c and 29er & 15mm... I think that's the list.

I just wish this bag had an internal laptop compartment, then it would be PERFECT!

Introducing the Big Gulp Summer Weight Kit

We're stoked to start making a big push with our new kit the "Big Gulp." This time we've got two big reasons to celebrate. One is the fact that Saisha once more killed the design, this time with a sweet homage to the iconic 7-11 jerseys of the 1980's, and secondly this is our first kit with our new supplier Pactimo. With the new manufacturer, we've taken a big step up in materials, especially in the chamois.
