LA based BiCi Concepts make handmade custom bags and accessories for bike riding and non-biking riding customer alike. The materials they use look to be of the utmost quality and the hardware quite suffice (I’m used to overkill like ykk #10 zippers on a small bag). While there are a number of big shops creating custom bags it’s nice to support smaller companies by purchasing their products whenever possible. Their description of the XL Messenger Bag with polka dot pattern follows:
Our Messenger Bags are designed around the premise of simplicity at it’s most functional. They have a large outer pocket that is slanted to allow the wearer to easily get items in and out while still on the body. There are a combination of 3 inner pockets – one to easily drop something into, one with a zipper for those valuable items that you can’t afford to lose & a half size velcro pocket.
The outer shell is constructed out of heavy 1000 denier Nylon Cordura® while the lining is constructed of a 400 denier nylon. Together these create a superior waterproof shield to protect your belongings. The bottom is reinforced with our super strong Black Carbon Vinyl material.
The main shoulder strap has a removable padding for comfort and security, as well as the adjustable chest strap to keep your bag from swinging around.
I like the fact that I can put the art of my choosing on the flap or like I really need when I am out riding a big piece of reflective material.
Found and available from Tokyo Fixed Gear. Custom orders can be done direct from BiCi Concepts.
