BLAQ messenger bag display. All that comes to mind is ”chaffing”, and also “expensive”. I’ve never had a messenger bag that wasn’t the same size or larger than my torso. I am tiny, but there isn’t anything I can do about. If it’s not overly huge, even when it’s the smallest bag a company makes *ahem* CHROME *ahem*, it’s somewhat fitting but so long it catches on my saddle after stopping at a light and standing. I suppose I could solve that problem by learning how to track stand well enough to impress everyone around me…. but if I fall on my face once during rush hour, well, that’s enough embarrassment to prompt me to unclip and put my tootsies on the pavement. ;)
Also… I’m just kidding. Their bags look awesome. I normally don’t go for stuff with skulls emblazoned on them, but I would make an exception in this case.
Blaq - I’m visiting these fine folks on the 20th!
Is that a cobra buckle? Ooooo…
Hey there! It really depends on where you are going and the necessary dress code.. I’ve travelled a lot with my Chrome Ivan and the past 2 trips a 5.11 Rush 24. Love the Ivan for it’s carnivorous capacity and the Rush24 for it’s compartments.. I’d recommend getting some Eagle Creek Pack-It Cubes and Folders to keep things organized.. Let me know if you have other requirements and I might be able to give you more or better suggestions!
What a Ghurka bag looks like after 20 years versus what another piece of luggage looks like after 20 years… That’s the Ghurka story!

The Victorinox MiniChamp is a 58mm Swiss Army knife. Suitable for a keychain, but loaded with an amazing number of tools. The MiniChamp includes among its many tools a number of uncommon ones including a pharmaceutical Cut & Picker Blade (also used as Orange-Peeler/Scraper, and package opener), a Cuticle Pusher (mini Spatula), and a precision small Wharncliffe style blade. The MiniChamp currently holds the record for the number of tools in a Victorinox 58mm knife.
Just got one of these in the midnite variety to replace my inka pen, nano light and leatherman style.. Making an attempt to pack lighter! :)
In reference to my Boreas on Kickstarter post..
Modular seems to be the way to go with consumers desiring a range of options from any single pack.. And Boreas seems to addressing it…
Something that will allow the user to purchase one pack system for a range of winter sports. We really like the idea of a modular system. People are doing such a wide variety of sports and activities now and we want to be the brand to support that.
Most brands do add on accessories to one standard pack (MOLLE, Arkiv) whereas they have taken to changing the whole pack! An interesting and different take on the modular system!
GORUCK just launched some new rucks. Well, not really new but a different take on what they currently offer. This is the new Slick line.
They have no exterior MOLLE webbing, no Velcro (for a patch), and no exit port for your hydration bladder’s tube.
“Tip: SK26 is less identifiable which makes it more covert than GR1. And while you’re using it as a daypack anywhere in the world, that’s important stuff.”
Check out their full line if you’re interested:
They look good and I’m sure there are a lot of people who like what GORUCK offers but don’t have a need for external MOLLE. In fact, I don’t really use the MOLLE on my GR1 on a daily basis but I do like that it’s there (Mike).
“The word ‘slick’ is commonly used in the most elite Special Operations Units to mean suit and tie as a uniform: full suit and tie, preferably grey or black, nice shoes and nice watch, lookin’ like an agent. Slick rucks mirror this image, wherever you are. And they conceal beer pretty well, too.”
That IS pretty slick…
