We love gadgets here at G Style, but it would be impossible to carry all the gadgets we love with us if we didn’t have some kind of bag to carry them around in. A lot of the staff here love backpacks (myself included) while others prefer messenger bags. It’s just a fact of life now that if you have a lot of stuff, you need a bag. Over the years, G Style has looked at several different backpacks and messengers from a lot of different brands and while we all have our preferences, we can all agree that if the bag doesn’t look good, we aren’t using it. Enter Rickshaw Bag Works. This is a new San Fransisco based company that manufactures each bag in-house with the pride and joy of an artisan.

Two of their most popular bags in their line-up are the Zero Messenger Bag and the Sutra Backpack. Both are highly functional while also being extremely fashionable. While both these products are great on their own, Rickshaw Bag Works introduced a twist in their design with a new proprietary materiel called REFLECTIVE Performance Tweed. This new innovative yarn is able to reflect light, even in ambient lighting. It’s extremely expensive to make and challenging to weave, but the final product is visibly special in both daylight and darkness. For those who want a bag that is both effective at night as it is in the day, these Rickshaw Bag Works bags just might be for you.
