"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

I love this bag! I got it during a sale, so it was a great price. I recently used it for a flight to Baltimore and was impressed by the quality. It is very light weight and I love the range of fabric choices. It's very easy to open for security and it fits under an airline seat. My only complaint is that because the bag is so lightweight, it can sort of "collapse" under the weight of a laptop. This is a very minor complaint, however. It can fit lots of stuff and it's really nice when the bag itself doesn't add much to the total weight. Overall, I'm very happy and I would definitely recommend this bag to others.

I purchased this bag because I bike to work a few days a week, but I do not want to change out bags everyday so it was style and function.

The front pouch that you put things you need to get easily should be better designed. I was thinking that is should have a small pouch and then have pockets off it. I either end up digging for things or put everything in the inside small pocket.

Speaking of digging for things, you should have a hook rather than loop for keys.

There are a lot more women biking and I see what they wear and they really go for things that are much more purse like so I think you should add a little function and then go after that market.

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.

A fantastic bag! It both looks good and is very functional. I love the pockets and organizational compartments - just the right amount. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone who commutes in a rainy climate and needs to be able to carry a fair amount of stuff.

It might nice to throw a small piece of candy in one of the pockets. when I first get a new bag I love open all the compartments, and I always fantasize about a small gift waiting for me inside. The bag is amazing, I feel confident that it can be my all-situation bag without any compromises. Keep up the quality work!!

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. 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. 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."
