I got my first hemp laptop bag in the early 2000s. It was packed to the rim with heavy loads for long durations on countless business, camping and backpacking trips in all climates, for two years it was traveling 5 days a week inter-state. After more than 10 years it finally developed a hole in the top from being packed so tightly, but was still in a good condition for a friend to want it - it still lives on! The picture above is my new one.
I have had my Birdy Anthracite fold-up bike since 2007. A Tour de France competitor built it and I bought it from him. Fold-ups bikes allow you to be more flexible and agile with your travel. For example: you can take it on a bus and then ride somewhere. The unique thing about Birdy fold-up bikes is the engineering, unlike others it folds at the wheels instead of the middle of the frame making it more sturdy. It is light and stealthy, it feels like you can nearly do instant 90 degree turns on it and I have a backpack that also unfolds into a bigger bag to fit the bike when I fold it.Read more
