This is a premium bag with a goal to retaining quality, craftsmanship and manufacturing in Australia. Producing a bag of this quality locally is a challenging feat that comes with some additional costs as it is still done by a person with their hands. It can be made cheaper in higher volumes with the machinery overseas factories have that Australia does not, yet we feel that is not of benefit to our local people or economy in the long run. So when you purchase a premium product like this, you are also helping to keep local manufacturing alive. We'd love to see local manufacturing move beyond survive to thrive through innovative use of design and materials to meet future challenges that we can share with the world. This is a small step towards that goal.
We trust you will enjoy using this bag as much as we do and like always, if you have any ideas for improvements please let us know, we love it!
1 - When fitting the bag we recommend criss-crossing the side straps behind the wheel for a secure fit. Take the left strap and connect it to the bottom right buckle and take the right strap and connect to the bottom left buckle. The middle strap is a choker style strap; wrap it around the wheel anchor then pass the buckle through the loop and pull tight, this holds the main weight of the bag; the side straps keep it straight on the wheel.
2 - If you're remote, consider burning your rubbish to reduce your load and ongoing environmental impact. Most regional centres do not recycle, it goes straight to landfill, so worth considering the trade offs. If you're not sure about that, read this article by Adventure Curated -click here
3 - To wash out the bag please use a gentle garden hose and not a high pressure hose. A light hose over should be enough and allow to dry in shade. High pressure strips the properties of the canvas and can damage other component materials.
