S S C Y: City of New York - TACK TRIANGLE

Our large tote backpack in a unique Japanese nylon with an open center slot in the front for odd shaped objects.

We love tote bags - easy access, no sweaty back, easily removed. We love backpacks - distributes weight, easy to ride with on a bike, but we could never ride a bike with a tote comfortably or safely and we got tired of taking our backpack off every time we needed something, so we combined the two and made the patent pending convertible tote backpack. Throw it on as a backpack, ride to the market, convert it to a tote in seconds, shop, then switch it back, and pedal to the next adventure.

This style has a special open slot in the front for items like a yoga mat, jacket, or magazine. Additionally, one can clip the corners together to make the bag smaller.

Unlike commonly found nylon, this unique twill woven Japanese nylon in a matte finish with a hand feel reminiscent of wax cotton is specially treated to give it structure and subtly sounds like a paper bag when handled. Because it has structure, we can use fewer materials to keep the bag light and durable. The fabric is lightly water resistant, but does soften when wet, yet will stiffen up again when dry.
