About this project
The ORBIT COLLECTION is made in Switzerland to guarantee product sustainability and fair working conditions. It comes in two sizes and is specifically made for use by left or right-handers.
Simple geometric and functional design. The proportions, compartments, reflective stripes and folding options are composed in the golden ratio. The simple, durable bag is lightweight and weatherproof. Structured, minimalist style bags – unique in their own architecture.
Reflective stripes surround your torso for high visibility from all directions. The bag folds over to adjust to its contents while hiding your zippers from pick-pockets.
