Velomacchi is possibly the first everyday carry gear brand for motorcycle enthusiasts. Working out of Portland, Oregon, with the bag and pack brand Syren Industrial Design & MFG. Co, Velomacci recently introduced their debut line of bags and attachments on Kickstarter, where they will be crowdfunding until Halloween of this year. Their rugged designs are watertight, aerodynamic, and made to last a lifetime. The pieces include a backpack, a tool roll, a computer case, a tablet sleeve, iPad and iPhone 6+ pods, and a messenger bag. The all-black collection is made of materials such as military-grade Cordura and quilted ballistic nylon. The items are outfitted with magnetic hardware, airframe aluminum hook fasteners, and bomb-proof YKK zippers, among many other features. Notably, the main bag seals with a patent-pending magnetic roll-top, closing quickly and securely so bikers can get back on the road.
