SO, that was awkward. Just goes to show the ancient Mayans were clearly smoking something herbal when they made their apocalyptic predications, as it’s 2013 and we’re still here! But now is as good a time as any to think about survival. We made it…. This time. In the last of our series outlining a few of our friends’ ‘go-bags’, we hit up Nick Mahoney of cycle-n-streetwear store Saint Cloud to outline what he’s stash away in his safe and sturdy Crumpler bag IF the world had ended. It may not be end of days no more, but it’s always a good time to keep your shit safe, just ask all the fools who lost stuff on new years.
And as a bike fanatic, there’s no better bag for Nick than Crumpler’s Barney Rustle Blanket messenger bag. Proportioned to carry loads without ever weighing you down, it fits A4/foolscap-sized folders in its 14-litre main compartment, plus all your everyday essentials across an array of easy access pockets. Handy when you’re riding your bike to escape zombies…
If you’re ready to prepare yourself for the unexpected, go hit up the Crumpler webstore and get packing.
