Some products are only with you for a short while, fleeting in their impression and instantly forgettable. Yet there are other products that stand alone as lifetime purchases, cherished friends through adventure & adversity; products not unlike the Bermondsey Backpack from Lumo.
Inspired by vintage British military rucksacks, this versatile handmade in the UK roll-top marries waxed cotton Halley Stevensons heritage canvas with Italian Misouri leather to create a luxurious, purposeful pack for the adventuresome cyclist.
A deft unclasp of the burnished stainless steel fixings reveals a spacious, laptop ready interior, trimmed with a leather key holder. An exterior magnetically closed document pouch completes storage duties.
Of course, the Bermondsey Pack is unlike other packs in that it offers best-in-class integrated LED lighting at the lower rear and along the supportive front straps. With a generous 9 hour maximum life, this USB rechargeable feature is so refined as to be almost invisible when not in use. However, in low light conditions, the Bermondsey blazes a trail front and aft, advertising your presence to other road users until journey’s end.
