Despite what many of us may believe, the urban landscape requires a certain level preparedness as well. And while it may not be the sometimes hostile and unforgiving backcountry, having the right gear on your person significantly helps you stay ahead of whatever this urban jungle may throw your way. At least that’s the outlook San Francisco-based Triple Aught Design had in mind when developing their Parallax messenger bag.
Functioning equally as a shoulder bag, the Parallax hosts a Helix attachment system that provides a modular solution for organizing your daily commuter gear. This includes a large main compartment complete with an array of organizational accessories such as their Transport Cubes, Control Panels, and Transport Sleeves. The bag also features a weather-resistant ripstop nylon shell while self-folding gussets add an extra layer of protection to your gear. Plus, it’s magnetic buckles mechanically lock and self-align making it easy to open and close the bag with one hand. A perfect option for the urban commuter. Available now for $300. [Purchase]
