Four Days left & custom coloured Pan-yays!

August 27, 2014

Hey everyone!

Thanks for helping us get to 85% of our goal on our Pannier Line kickstarter! We couldn't be more excited about our prospects and thankful to all our our backers.  We've got four days left, and as always it's time for us to hustle hustle hustle! We really think we can do it! 

Just wanted to share with you an example of what a super fun custom coloured Pan-yay! could look like! Give some inspiration for your custom bags! We also wanted to share with you guys another really rad kickstarter project that's also going on right now! The VIER Compact high security lock! As lovers of bikes we're always looking way ways to secure things to our bikes, like our bags... or to just secure your bike, like VIER. It  a lock that breaks down to fit into a bag the size of a burrito! ..... and we all know how much YNOT loves burritos!

Marc De Storm started out as a successful kickstarter campaign, and is now producing soild designs out of Montreal, which we're proud to carry! It's always great to promote other like minded companies. Marc De Storm believes that by creating durable products they are going against the the philosophy of short-term products and profits, and we agree one hundred percent.

The Marc De Strom Oxford Shirt

A classic cut and style, updated for your urban adventures. After dozens of tries we've perfected the fit to create a slim profile that still allows for great mobility. The oxford cloth that we use is a cotton polyester blend that utilizes h2out technology to keep you sweat free and smelling good during the daily grind.

• Slim Cut

• Generous fit in shoulders allows comfortable riding

• One chest pocket • Slightly longer rear panel keeps your skivvies private

• Contrast stitching on button holes

• Proudly cut, sewn and designed in Montreal, Canada.

Laptop Sleeves & Covert Pockets! Great add-ons to your YNOT bag!

August 14, 2014


First off,  a huge thanks for all the support we've received so far! The feedback and interest has been great, and we're so excited to be on track towards reaching our goal! Secondly, we thought we'd share some fun and useful extra features to add on to your Pan-yay!, Kassi, or Portage!


Swoop Laptop Sleeves, are removable padded sleeves that can be quickly inserted into many YNOT bags -  including our awesome new Pannier Line available on Kickstarter: the Pan-yay, the Kassi and the Portage (remember the Annex already has a built in laptop sleeve). The sleeves fit laptops with as big as 15” screens. They have a secure velcro closure, and two external pockets - ideal for cords and chargers. By adding a laptop sleeve, you can quickly transform your bag from touring the countryside to commuting to work.



Next up is the Covert Pocket, A removable zippered pocket, that fits securely between the separated liner, and the exterior of your of your Pan-yay. A great way to secure your essentials within your bag with a heavy duty coil zipper. These accessories are made with the same heavy duty materials as the bags themselves. Both water repellent and durable!



Introducing The Portage! A rack-mounted shoulder bag on Kickstarter!

August 12, 2014

Don’t want the look of a traditional pannier? Introducing the Portage! A bag with a clean aesthetic, and increased carrying capacity. Just like the Annex, The Portage shares an adjustable flap closure, internal zippered pocket and the ability to hide your rack hardware away for off-bike use. It's lined with 420D Daimond Ripstop with a water repellent backing. It's also compatible with removable swoop laptop sleeves, allowing you to take your computer easily on the go!

Grab your own Portage as a backer reward on our Pan-Yay Kickstarter Campaign, and help us make our new pannier line available for everyone!
