Today we have a newly re-issued and an an updated bag  from our friends at Velo City.  As you may remember, we jumped at the opportunity to check out their Roll Top, which spawned a bunch of great photos and a lengthy review.  If you want to skip that and get a quick run down, you should know this: Velo City is a bicycle centric bag and accessory maker based in Utah.  Everything they make is hand made, vegan, and customizable.  And we can say from first hand experience that their products are super functional and of the highest quality.  All their products are made to last you for a lifetime, no exaggeration.

But onto the new stuff!  Today’s post is about the re-issued Ruck Sack and updated Messenger 2015.  We’ll go into each one by one.
