Fifth Season Squall Sack (Yellow Top / Navy Bottom)


A Bohemian Rhapsody in canvas, a sonnet stitched in hemp, a bicycle bag that whispers tales of dusty trails and windswept meadows. Begone! Flimsy nylon contraptions with their plastic zippers that fizzle and expire like fireflies after a rainstorm. This is a De Stijl masterpiece, hand-stitched in the heart of Vermont by a single soul with fire in her eyes and beeswax on her fingers.  (And usually some cacophonous jams blaring out of a tiny speaker)

Simple roll-top closure, secured by a solid brass clasp that gleams like the dying embers of the Lightbrite you forgot to switch off. No fumbling with teeth and tracks, no weeping seams that surrender to the first rogue raindrop. The Squall Sack is fortress against the elements, a haven for your maps and journals, your picnic provisions, (Zima / Kudos bar / Lunchables with sweaty ham) and spare tubes.

Side loops with brass snaps clip snugly onto your Wald basket. Need a shoulder companion because you forgot your parrot? Side loops let you easily add a shoulder strap. 

For the rowdy rides, the descents that make your heart sing a hummingbird full of amphetamines, just add a Lockdown Strap to the top of the bag so it doesn't take a powder.  

About the size: tall enough to hold your dreams, or at least some tall boys.  You can easily fit a winter's commuting load in there, or a few days of groceries.  No internal pockets, those pesky little traitors that invite leaks and woes. 

The Squall Sack is a symphony of materials: waxed cotton, whispering of campfire smoke and forgotten adventures; hemp webbing, strong as a sailor's rope; and brass hardware, gleaming like a forgotten dowry chest (Who writes this crap?)

Fits in a Wald 137 full or racer (half) basket.  Hooks to the middle rung of the former, top of the latter.
