American Kargo Bags from GetGeared
American Kargo is a company who specialise in bags and rucksacks that are motorcycle oriented and performance inspired. In their own words, they are ripping apart the bag business and putting it back together – the right way. They don’t cut any corners when it comes to construction and no expense is spared on the materials they use. Their focus is on backpacks and bags specifically designed for motorcycle and other power sports enthusiasts, whatever the age, whatever the gender.
One of their most popular backpacks is the American Kargo Trooper backpack. A vastly spacious, segmented backpack made from highly abrasion resistant 600 denier fabric. There are pockets on the inside for separation, elasticated pockets on the flaps when they are opened, a first aid kit pocket and a removable key holder for after your ride. At the bottom of the lumbar panel, you will find padding, which helps to hold the bag away from your back slightly to promote good air flow and you can even route your earphones up the straps to make sure they stay in place while you ride. The fleece lined 15 inch laptop pocket at the back is closed with both a zip and a buckle for extra security and you'll even find a pocket that houses the helmet carrier, which attaches to the outside of the Trooper Rucksack at four points and can hold even an off-road helmet, peak and all.
Another popular bag is the American Kargo Commuter backpack. This one is made from the same abrasion resistant material, but has a simpler design, better suited for everyday use than for motorcycle touring. The reflective print with modern design helps to make you more visible to other road users and will appeal to a younger audience, even if they're only young at heart. The Commuter also has lots of pockets, including the specially designed laptop pocket which suspends the hardware off of the bottom of the bag, meaning that dropping the bag is less likely to cause damage. Specially designed back padding keeps the backpack sitting just away from your back, which promotes airflow, reducing your chances of getting a sweaty back, and the 270 degree zipper gives easy access like a tank bag.
