Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack

We’ve got certain brands that we always return like moth to flame at Coolector HQ and Bellroy can count themselves chief amongst them. The reason for their gravitational pull is their impeccable wares and the fact that they so consistently release new products onto their digital shelves. The latest accessory to have caught our eye is the Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack which is made in conjunction with the cycling apparel brand, MAAP.

The Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack comes in an Ink Blue colour way and has a price tag of £209 which represents the considerable quality that is to be had both in terms of the materials used and the overall excellence in design this bag offers. This top class backpack from Bellroy and MAAP lets you ride with a backpack that knows the road and this special MAAP edition of Bellroy’s Shift Backpack is fit for any two-wheel adventure, yet styled for the office.

Versatile Design, No Nonsense Performance

Carefully customised to suit cyclists, the Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack has many intuitive design features that those both on and off two wheels will appreciate and it is aesthetically superior enough to be used for any reason – be it cycling to work, heading to the gym or a weekend break away. This superb accessory from Bellroy has padded storage for laptops up to 15” so will suit those who need to have their tech in tow and a side zip access into main compartment so all your essentials are easy to get to in a hurry.

The Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack (£209) has a bike light loop and reflective strip for visibility, unique Slide Hook for easy yet secure closure and each one is made from water-resistant Venture Weave and leather which offers an impressive amount of robustness and resilience to the elements. The backpack boasts a new breathable and ergonomically designed harness, plus reflective strip and a light loop to make it a versatile performer to say the least.

With a hook closure which is perfect to open with ease if you’re riding with gloves on (or have stiff hands from that cold commute), the Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack really will become the go-to accessory for the keen cyclist. The weather-resistant Venture Weave fabric and foldover closure of this backpack effortlessly covers your gear from showers and splashes when out on the road and it has a design that was made for cycle commuters who need to carry a bit more gear, but love minimalist styling.

Surprising Storage

When you look at the Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack you might not think it has enough storage space to meet your requirements but it’s somewhat of a tardis and you’ll be amazed at just how much you can fit in there. With a 22 litre capacity and space for a 15″ laptop, you’ll find that it has more than enough space for all your daily commuting needs or for when you’re heading into the wild on two wheels and need plenty of provisions in tow.

Priced at £209 and built to last, there’s an awful lot to like about the Bellroy X MAAP Shift Backpack and if you find yourself in need of new, robust carry this spring and summer, you’re not going to find many cooler or more functional choices than this. Another first class collaboration between Bellroy and MAAP.
