Portland, Ore. (for immediate release) — North St. Bags is proud to introduce the Venture Pannier, a 30-liter bike bag that bolsters they’re already comprehensive line with another, larger, option. North St. crafted the Venture Pannier to excel at every turn. Whether it takes you to your day at the office, an afternoon at the park, or a week on the trails the style and functionality will more than suffice.
The rolltop and flap closure ensures that everything will remain securely inside the bag, while two side pockets with Velcro provide additional easy-to-access storage. Compression straps allow for volume adjustment, meaning the pannier’s silhouette can shrink while carrying lighter loads. A simple hook and bungee attachment system—found on all of North St.’s panniers—connects quickly and easily to a bike’s rack.
“Biking is in our blood,” says North St. Bags founder and owner, Curtis Williams. “We’ve always made panniers and I’m beyond thrilled to introduce a new addition—the Venture—to the line.” In addition to adding the new Pannier, North St. Bags also retooled the Route Pannier and launched a larger version of their popular Micro Pannier called the Macro Pannier.
Like many of North St.’s other bags the Venture is made with recycled EcoPak sailcloth. This lightweight, ultra durable, waterproof layer is crafted from recycled plastic bottles turned into woven polyester by heritage sailmaker Challenge Sailcloth. North St.’s EcoPak bags are available in 6 vibrant colors, VOC free, and come with a big reduction in carbon footprint over traditional manufacturing methods.
