When I first saw it online I liked it because it was a versatile, simple, durable bag. Lots of loops on the outside allow you to customize this bag into any get-up. I’m already thinking up ways to use it in the car, as a bike pannier, and as a messenger bag and I’m sure more ideas will come. When Matt found out I was interested in the Oil Bag, a heavy tarp and Cordura bag and he sent me one. Here are some shots from the first day with it.
A lot of thought has gone into this bag, you can watch a 9 minute video about it here.

Full rain-gear bike-day in Brooklyn. Built-in rain-cover is glorious, you just brush it aside and can access everything. Overall ‘Bamboo’ [Hi-Viz Yellow] color scheme is good for nighttime riding. It’s a technical “commuter” pack that works exceptionally well for civilian life.
Owned 1.5 yrs. Seeing action from the East to the West coasts and as far off as Vietnam. This exact model, the Osprey Momentum 34, seems to have been replaced by an updated Momentum 30 pack with is quite similar. Which means the Momentum 34 is now on sale at various outdoor stores and e-retailers.
Really like this loadout. The coyote and the black Omega Pacific carabiner looks really nice. I recommend taking the S&W out of the packaging before heading out. Last thing you want to do in a bugout situation is fiddle around with getting that out! ;)
Check out the ITS Skeletonized Bottle Holder (they do it in Coyote) in case you ever decide to attach Thermos, or even some of the Monsters!

The designer behind this very interesting Kickstarter project got in touch to let me know about this pack and I thought it was definitely worth sharing on two levels.
Firstly here’s a brief description:
The Shrine Sneaker Backpack is a weekend travel backpack designed with two large dedicated sneaker compartments for your limited edition kicks. It also has storage for all your important accessories: caps, watches, jewelry, and tech. Whether flying to another city or just staying with friends a few hours away, your gear will always be ready.
-Two large front sections for high top sneakers
-Unique pull out hat slings keeps caps stiff and shaped
-Panel divider for watches
The first level is if there are any of you who are ‘Sneakerheads’ and love your sneakers, or just want to go away for a weekend and take three pairs (one pair on your feet) of your best sneakers away with you for a weekend, then this definitely looks like the pack for you.
The second level is just to look and admire. This pack has been very well designed for the user. All the hardware looks really nice (it’s why I led with this image), the colour scheme is fresh (love that turquoise and the bronze YKK zippers!) and the materials seems to compliment the overall look.
A few elements that particularly caught my eye was the awesome ‘zipper garage’ and the cap holder/protector.
If this is your thing, or even if it’s not, definitely head over to the Kickstarter page to read some more and look at all the shots. The whole thing (including break down of supporting options) has been really well designed too. The guy who contacted me has worked on the Pelican Progear Elite Packs that you may have seen. I might end up doing a post on those too as they look pretty cool, they’re definitely worth googling in the mean time.
