I love my first generation Minimal Backpack. As the name implies, it’s the simplest form of portage. A traditional dry sack design, rendered in Hyperlite Mountain Gear‘s proprietary material, nonwoven Dyneema. My only complaint with the first run was that it was white. It got dirty easily.
The new Outlier Minimal Backpack comes in black and still kicks ass. Check out more photos and pick one up at Outlier.
How rad is this? While I was at Pushbike today, Travis dropped off a whole lotta color in the form of these Freight Baggage backpacks. They’re in stock now at Pushbike, so swing through and pick one up. The conversation seemed to center around the yellow bag…
Patrick at Pedal Consumption teamed up with BLAQ out of Portland to design a roll-top backpack for his Kagero frames. Pick one up here and check out more information here! These are on sale now, through the 13th, so take advantage of the savings and support made in the USA products.
I have been using the shit out of the new Hold Fast Day Pack since Interbike this year. At first, I thought “I love Hold Fast but I don’t need another backpack”. Then the size won me over. It’s, it’s so small. I throw my flask in one side pocket, a u-lock in the other and still have plenty of room for a towel, flip flops, cameras and anything else I’d use on a trip to the river to swim.
It’s Made in the USA, uses the military MOLLE system and comes in black! The purple accents on this one rule. Pick one of these up here, at HOLD FAST and just wait till you see my new staps!

In recent years, a large push for original content has spawned a steady flow of photosets, profiles and portraits.
Known for his A Day in 10 Photos, Merckx Mondays, Recent Roll, Shop Visits, and Beautiful Bicycles features, John continues to document bicycles of all kinds and his daily life through photos. Over the years, Prolly is Not Probably has been cited in the New York Times, COG Magazine, Urban Velo and other notable publications. In March of 2011, John moved to Austin, Texas where he continues to cover a cross section of cultural influences.
