Christmas came early for me this year, I was stoked to receive my super custom Blicksbags in the mail today! It’s beautifully made by Madeline and the team based in Cleveland using sustainable materials and methods. I love my recycled vinyl patch with the CMYK markings, as a designer it’s perfect for me. I’ve been after a smaller bag as I usually fill my Crumpler bag with a million things and end up with a stiff neck. I took my Pica for a test drive down to the beach, it’s light and comfortable, stays in place and I can fit way more in than I expected I would. Camera, phone, Ipod, DVD’s, chunky wallet, water bottle, sunnies, a lock, keys and I had room left to spare. Even though I’m trying to cut down on carrying so much stuff around whilst riding, my first instinct was to try and fit as much in as possible, old habits die hard I guess! I’m really pleased with my new bag, thanks so much Madeline, you’ve made my day!
