Add a removable Back Pad to your YNOT messenger Bag!

July 14, 2014

Always looking for new ways to improve upon our existing designs, we wanted to provide a back pad that could be used with all YNOT messenger bags - both here in the studio and those bags already out being used in the wild. And we found a way! 

Add an extra level of comfort to your ride, with the removable YNOT Messenger Bag Back Pad! A closed cell foam interior and air-knit padding, make the Back Pad ideal for sweat absorption and abrasion resistance for your clothing. The entire back pad also doubles as an additional pocket, with a heavy duty coil zipper for quick access to your goods.  The Back Pad is available in Large, Medium and Small, and can easily be added to ALL Junction Messenger Bags (regardless of size or generation - got your bag two years ago? No prob!), along with the brand new and improved edition of the Mongoose Pro-Series Messenger Bag

New edition of the Mongoose Pro-Series Messenger Bag! Better than ever!

July 14, 2014

Designed with hardworking messengers in mind, we've tweaked some of the features on our Pro-Series Mongoose Messenger Bag, making it better than ever!

Now able to fit a standard bankers box inside, the Mongoose now also features a double-layer floating separated liner for added durability! We've combined an interior layer of 8.5 oz Bio-pruf treated truck tarp, with an outer layer of 420D Nylon to fight against added wear and tear. The Mongoose still features additional side pockets, compression straps, an x-strap shoulder strap design for added weight distribution, and reinforced corners! Like all our Messenger bags, the Mongoose has a reversible shoulder strap for lefties, righties, or those wanting to switch up their load. It is also compatible with our brand new removeable YNOT Messenger Back Pad, for an additional level of comfort and storage!

Lockedcog takes on the Stowaway & Backlash: Now Available Everywhere!

June 27, 2014

Kris over at Lockedcog just posted up an awesome review of our Stowaway camera insert and Backlash camera strap! Just in time for BOTH to be available on the YNOT website! Now you can even build your own custom insert or camera strap with our online custom builders!

"The Stowaway kills it for a small camera bag especially if you're regularly on the go and looking to pack light. My camera stuff is never the only thing I'm lugging around so having three small compartments to divvy up just my photo stuff is perfect. Added bonus? You can stow a six pack snug and keep it cool for when you aren't snapping away!"
