So much motorcycling equipment is built to optimize speed, so why shouldn’t your pack be built to the same specs? Every element of Velomacchi’s Speedway Rolltop bag, from the material to the straps, is designed to meet the challenges of the road. Founded by a former North Face bag designer (and motorcycle racer), this upstart motorcycle brand is looking to build the ultimate road-ready backpack.
One of the first things you notice looking at this bag is the magnetic sternum coupler. Designed to keep the pack close to your center of gravity when traveling at high speeds while still being easy to unclip, it’s an ideal way to secure your bag to your back. Alongside the clip is a mount for your GoPro so you can easily record rides, or in worst-case scenarios, send in evidence to your insurance company. Constructed with a super water resistant 1000 denier cordura fabric – you won’t be totally screwed if you get caught out in the rain on your bike. The stormproof toggle closures are designed to keep the outer flaps on the bag tightly shut even at high speeds. With a compartment that can easily fit either a laptop or water bladder, this bag is perfect for the weekend warrior or the workday commuter. You can get this 25 liter bag for just about $300.
