We introduced on the genius Hadrien Monloup, one of many co-founders of Carryology, to design the morale patch and our very personal mythological Chimera to characterize this collaboration.
It is a coming collectively of three creatures near our hearts: the Owl, representing Bellroy and their model emblem/mascot. A kangaroo to characterize Carryology HQ (as we had been based in Australia). And Rattlesnake, to provide a nod to the USA aspect of the Carryology crew (particularly Texas, the place I reside).
It is a patch designed for storytelling and efficiency – a four-layer print on a reflective patch, so you’ll be able to connect it to your pack when on the bike or strolling at night time, and it’ll catch these headlights and preserve you secure.
We took some inspiration from the Bellroy x MAAP Shift Backpack, which had two strengthened loops in direction of the bottom, there so as to add an LED flashing gentle for cyclists to be seen when commuting. We took these two loops and created a customized folding patch to wrap over and round, utilizing a molded hook to connect securely.
Wish to flash your Owl/Kangaroo/Rattlesnake Chimera patch? Connect it in only a second. Or preserve your Chimera clear, pop your patch right into a pocket, and have the choice so as to add a motorbike gentle (or no matter else you’d like).
