Cycling Chic

It’s hard to make a backpack feel “grown-up.” But Anna and Tony of DUCKSINAROW hope to change all that. Their decidedly sophisticated packs are an effortless marriage of function and style, designed with the urban bike commuter in mind. Made from vegetable tanned leather with a cover for rain protection, the bag can travel safely and sensibly wherever life may take you. Everything you need to get the job done — even a computer – will fit in the roomy interior which includes a padded 15” laptop compartment. Thanks to a simple shoulders-free handlebar connection, you can keep an eye on your belongings throughout every ride and spare yourself a real pain in the neck. And that’s just the beginning of this carefully-considered, cycling-friendly design. A transparent pocket will hold any touch screen phone so you can answer calls on the go, while a hidden strap holds a light to guide you home. Comfortable handles and Covert connectors make it easy to lug your helmet and other gear through town once you’ve locked up. Although the DUCKSINAROW commuter pack places priority on safety and convenience, the chic piece speaks for itself; this time, fashion and function go hand in hand.
