Right now, through July 14 you can save 20 percent on all Velomacchi gear at Revzilla. The entire Velomacchi line is inspired by the CEO and designer Kevin Murray’s time spent creating gear for US special ops and the Navy SEALS. It’s essentially military-grade everyday-gear so it should have no problem standing up to your commute.
The more expensive bags from Velomacchi are understandably higher up in the price bracket and a little overkill for day-to-day use — unless of course you repeatedly find yourself behind enemy lines (Mondays, am I right?). With that said, the Giro comes in at an entry point into the Velomacchi bag line. It’s a much more straightforward in design and scaled back in construction, but it’s still miles above most other bags out there when it comes to toughness. The impact cases, laptop and tablet sleeves not only look like they fell off a Black Hawk helicopter, but they’re also all made with 1680D ballistic nylon, polyethylene impact foam padding and watertight reverse bail zippers. Now, I don’t know about your commute, but that’ll definitely survive my daily Hudson River crossings.
Gear from Velomacchi generally lives at a higher price point, which is why seeing the entire line for 20 percent off makes snagging an item or upgrading the motorcycle commute that much more tempting. Moreso, Velomacchi gear built to last, so think of it as an investment, too.
