Mission Workshop continues their Advanced Projects line with a Rummy Messenger Bag:
“This edition of the Rummy messenger bag is constructed from American-made 10 oz. waxed canvas and incorporates features reserved for our Advanced Projects series bags; the Arkiv closure system and the light-weight and super tough VX liner. The weatherproof canvas will show wear patterns that reflect daily use.
Messenger bag features include: quick-access outboard pockets, internal zippered pockets, custom aluminum strap hardware, and detachable cross-chest stabilizer. Large exterior facing zippered pocket fits up to 15” laptop computers. The weatherproof roll top main compartment can be used in either the “roll top” mode, or in the traditional “flap down” configuration.
Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty.”
I’m one of those guys that loves a good collaboration, especially between two exceptional, made in the USA brands like Cielo and Tanner Goods. We saw some early bicycle portage work from Tanner at NAHBS last year and this year, Cielo will be presenting two special bicycles, both complete with handmade Tanner products. Choose either the Tanner Goods Edition Cross Classic or Sportif Classic and they will come loaded with a handlebar bag, saddle bag, frame bag, painted matching fenders and Tanner mud flaps.

Stay tuned for more information, including pricing and availability, during NAHBS.
Yorkshire’s own portage company, Restrap, has a few new models available for 2013 and the one that caught my eye was the Highrise backpack. Check out more at Restrap!
This is the first point and shoot camera bag that I would actually use. It’s black, Made in the USA and fits on your backpack, messenger bag or belt loop with ease. It even has a cell phone pouch. Cadence thought of all the details with the Place Camera Bag. Scoop one up today.
One of my favorite shops is carrying one of my favorite bag makers. Blue Lug in Japan now has Swift Industries’ full line in stock at their shop. The Polaris Porteur is such a rad bag. Check out more great photos at the Blue Lug Flickr.
Dry sacks are the best. The best for a day of drinking in the park, keeping cameras dry, touring, camping, rafting, “fadventuring”, or whatever you can think up. Check out YNOT’s new Six Pack sack the next time you need to keep the wet from the dry and vice versa.
Today Chrome announced a new street photography contest, aptly called Streets of Chrome to celebrate the release of their new DSLR backpack, the Niko Camera Pack. The video above gives you a rundown, with the press release and four city Hub party fliers below.
YNOT introduces a new bag to their Pro Series line, the Mongoose:
“The MONGOOSE is part of the YNOT Pro-Series cycling bag line. It has all the features of our basic single-strap messenger bags but with additional pockets and an X-strap to spread the load. This bag is made to work hard, with reinforced corners and increased carrying capacity. The back pad acts as an additional pocket and can be removed to be washed. The separated floating liner protects your goods and keeps them dry, while the zippered details pocket keeps your smaller goods organized and secure.”
Blue Lug loves American-made cycling packs and recently, they got in a full stock of ILE Transfer Race Bags. Of course you can buy those from Eric at ILE direct here in the States, I just wanted to give Blue Lug some love for their great photos. See the rest here.
I love photo bags and I’ve used a ton. They all have their strengths and their weaknesses but I keep coming back to one in particular. The Incase DSLR Pro Pack definitely has shorcomings but overall, I’ve put it to the test over the past six months and traveled with it all over the world.
