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.
"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."
