Continuing with the theme of weakness as discussed in my previous “First Look” post, let’s address my proclivity voor sacks. I have a weakness for all portaging devices designed to be worn by myself and/or my fiets.
Except, obviously, the lowly, traditional seatbag.
NORTH ST CLINTON BACKPACK
The North St Clinton Backpack ($189USD) is a waterproof, (lightly) modular, constructed to outlive you, hecho en la república de Portland en los USA, rolltop bag of awesome. Sharing the same features and capacity as its convertible pannier bro (Woodward), it’s designed voor full time back use with padding and ergo straps. If you’re looking for a bag that’s not from the usual suspects and is made to withstand everything you throw at it, *AND* is made in the States, check out North St Bags.
NORTH ST CLINTON BACKPACK IN 3 POINTS
- Padded bottom not only pads bottom but helps keep this thing sitting up straight.
- Straps are comfortable and the D-rings make it easy to adjust.
- 20 liter volume is a good all-around size—not too big, not too small.
