Fun Projects We're involved in the month!

So, we've got a bunch of fun stuff in the works over the next few weeks. Here's a brief look at some of the projects we are currently involved in.

Our new messenger bags are now available to our wholesale dealers. If you live near one of our dealers, go check them out. And if they don't have them yet, tell them to get at us!

We have completed our first ever "COLLAB"! Our friend Cache' has being doing some amazing work around LA for the past couple of years. He decided to honor us, by painting one of our bags and hanging it at his current gallery show!

His work is featured through murals all over Los Angeles, he is a Mechanic over at Orange20 Bikes in East Hollywood. After you check out his stuff, you will notice how much he loves chickens, they are an ongoing theme throughout his work.

Caches' work will be hanging at the Crewest Gallery throughout the month of April. Once he is done with the bag, we (us&Cache') will be donating the bag to a benefit race in Philly!

I lived in Philly years ago,and that town still holds a special place in my heart. So when my favorite radical bookstore in Philly contacted us about kicking down prizes for an event, my heart skipped a beat.

The Wooden Shoe has been going strong, for over 30 years now. It is a radical bookstore helping to spread literature of all kinds, that would not be readily available to wider audiences other wise. They also facilitate local artist with space for intimate musical performances, sociopolitical talks & lectures, and so on.

They are a non-profit, and this event will be directly contributing to helping them out. If you live in Philly, give up your beer $ for one
night, and go race! You might win a one of a kind bag from us, as well some some other goodies, that we are sending their way!

What a Month!

Hey Everyone! Things have been hectic (as usual) over the past month with the recent launch of our messenger bags! It seems like you guys are loving them!

Thank you so much to everyone that ordered from us last month. Not only did you get some great new gear but, 10% your order was donated to the

The earthquake hit Haiti, almost 3 months ago, and they still have a very long way to go. They really need our help, and we really need to make sure that the help we are trying to give, is getting to where it needs to be. Please make sure whatever charity you choose, get's your money to the people that need it most. The Red Cross can be helpful at times, but unfortunately a surplus of the money we donate to them, goes into trust interest funds, or directly to our Military for "helping".

Haitian Refugees Jailed For Not Having Visas

At the end of the day a small few, benefit from large sums of money that could prove beneficial to many more. People need food and shelter right now, not jails.

Please try your best to make sure that the money you donate for Haiti, is going to Haiti.

To everyone that ordered with us in the Month of March.
Not only did you guys get some great new gear, but you helped to make a difference in the lives of some people in that really needed (and still need), our help. Thank you.
