"Made right here in San Francisco, The large Velo edition backpack is an exercise in minimalist design — sleek, simple, lightweight, black. My goal was to address the essential functionality of the everyday, all-purpose carry-all — nothing less, nothing more. I wanted a casual, yet stylish, alternative to the old-school book bag and the over-built wilderness pack — while still working with technical fabrics rather than canvas and leather.”

-Mark Dwight Founder and designer

This is a very attractive and useful item. I used it for the first time as my carryon on a flight to visit family. The main compartment held all I wanted/needed, including my iPad, The front pocket was handy for my 3-1-1 bag. Overall, it looked way better than an ordinary backpack. My only "con"is the weight: it's heavier than I like. I know it would bother my arthritic shoulders if I wore it for any length of time. That problem would likely be alleviated had I gotten the padded shoulder straps but those gave it too much of a backpack look. Bottom line, it's a great bag and it's made in the USA.

Story

About VELO:

The VELO collection features a sleek, minimalist design, inspired by everyday urban travel. High-quality YKK water-resistant urethane zippers provide easy access to the main compartment and outside organizational pocket. The exterior is fabricated using light-weight, waterproof X-Pac™ sail cloth, with a second layer of rugged Cordura® nylon on the interior. Reflective accents and safety flasher attachment loops enhance nighttime visibility for cyclists and pedestrians. Inside the bag, there's a padded back-panel laptop sleeve for 15" laptops or documents. This Large Velo-edition backack is made from scratch in our San Francisco workshop.

 

About Design:

"For the Velo Collection, I removed the 'flap' and replaced the traditional 'clip and rip', with a simple 'zip'. I love the convenient, quiet access these zippers provide — they're just perfect for quickly accessing your stuff when you're seated on a plane, train or bus. Zip it open, zip it shut — simple as that — and, the glossy water-resistant zippers look elegant, while protecting your belongings from the elements. The seat belt webbing straps are comfortable, without all the fuss of the structured straps common on traditional outdoor gear. The subtle diamond pattern in the technical sail cloth gives the black fabric an architectural look, and the reflective accent stripe and logo provide just the right visual 'pop' — and a subtle nod to our passion for urban cycling. I've used my Velo-edition Backpack prototype on my daily bicycle commute and airplane trips for six months to make sure it was perfect, and it's truly everything I need."
