We are massive fans of supporting new and exciting products that can help us live our lifes to full. As keen cyclist ourselves finding out about Lumo has been....well quite enlightening (boom boom!).
Lumo is a new company and they are currently trying to launch their first two products to market. The DNA of the products is based around keeping cyclists safe when riding in the dark, whilst also keeping them warm and looking hip and funky.
Do take a look at their excellent Kickstarter Campaign where you can pre-order and ensure they reach their target
(at the time of writing they were almost there!). UPDATE: The campaign has already met their target but there is still time to back them!
Our favourite is their Bermondsey Backpack - it looks awesome as well as being a safety device. We would purchase one if we didn't already have our most favourite thing in the world on our backs already! - our Cotopaxi Kilimanjaro.
The Cotopaxi Kilimanjaro
We do not think there are many bags out there that can compete with brilliance of this little number. With 20L of capacity it is big enough to pack your gym kit and towel but small enough to be a day pack for your travels.
This a picture of the Cotopaxi Kilimanjaro we love...
The build quality really stands out and although it does not have those fancy 'weathertight' zips the ones it does have are ruggid, easy to open, and very good looking. With three seperate compartments, an inner laptop sleeve, and two water bottle holders it wins in many places. The front straps include chest and waist tightners meaning it does not move, even when running i.e. getting chased by a bear in the forest.
Overall, we cannot say enough about this little bag - the fact that it was a Birthday pressie makes it all the more special.
