Po Campo launched its new all-weather and sustainable line on Kickstarter for pre-orders. The Mardy Cargo Panier and Belmont Backpack are designed to be the only bike bags need for your daily commute. Both bags feature bluesign® certified recycled polyester fabric, built-in high-visibility attached rain covers (like a little poncho for your backpack), a padded laptop sleeve, reflective accents, and blinking LED zipper pulls for extra visibility at night.

The Belmont Backpack (11.5″x18″x5.5″ / 18.6L) is a slim backpack designed to be worn while biking. It has a hidden easy access pocket for your phone, a front pocket for your keys, two open interior elastic/stretch pockets for your personal items, two exterior temperature controlled pockets made from Neoprene, and additional breathable padding. All making this the perfect bag for work commutes, a quick overnight trip or for school, rain or shine.

The Mardy Cargo Pannier (14″x17.5″x6.5″ / 25L), whose name comes from the conservationist Margaret “Mardy” Murie, is Po Campo’s largest bike bag to date. The Mardy attaches to a bike’s rear rack with super-strong Fidlock® magnetic buckles that hold over 80 pounds each and quickly detach to convert to a tote. In addition to this, it has a separate shoe compartment at the bottom (it’s cleaner this way), a padded laptop sleeve, three interior elastic/stretch pockets, an exterior pocket for small personal items like your keys, two drink pockets and even a carabiner hook for extra stability during those bumpy rides.

“We kept getting requests from all of our customers, they were asking for something waterproof, more sustainable to mirror our commitment to protecting the environment, and something less feminine that is inclusive to more types of riders. These bags are the trifecta for us,” says Po Campo’s Founder and Product Designer Maria Boustead.

Since 2009, Po Campo has manufactured over 100,000 bags for people who live their life by bike all over the world. But Po Campo thinks you (and planet earth) deserve more. So, they set out to create the best waterproof and sustainable bike bags with even more features and versatility.nIn May 2013, Po Campo partnered with World Bicycle Relief, a Chicago nonprofit that provides bicycles to rural African communities, giving them access to healthcare, education and economic opportunities. To date, Po Campo has donated over 158 bikes.

About The Founder

Industrial designer Maria Boustead loved biking to work but longed for a better way to carry her things. Backpacks made her back too sweaty, shoulder bags would irritatingly fall down her arm while she rode, and traditional bike bags were big and clunky and not intended to be carried off the bike. Recognizing that more and more people were using their bikes for transportation, she started Po Campo to create a line of bags with the versatility that the lifestyle demanded.
