Most of the popular bike bags on the market are highly functional but most are Black, Grey or Darker Colors.
We've created a DURABLE, FUNCTIONAL and STYLISH bike bag to add COLOR to your commute!
With more than 726 cyclists killed and an estimated 50,000 injured per year, the need for better visibility is crucial.
I chose the Spring color palette for Carmichael bike bags to integrate the science of the *Nanometer Color Spectrum for optimal visibility in an array of bright, eye-catching colors such as Orange, Yellow, Seafoam Green, Blue and Pink.
- Bold Color Collection for Spring/Summer: Announce to the world you have style mojo and increase your visibility!
- Durable 22 oz waterproof canvas
- Vegetable tanned leather trim
- Solid brass hardware (no Velcro or plastic!)
- Panniers strap onto any rear bike rack and secure in place with brass hardware and adjustable leather belts.
- Easy on, easy off
- Stretch Goal Reward: Adjustable shoulder strap that attaches to your pannier - take it with you!
- Cargo Space: 1,161 total cubic Inches! Each compartment is roomy enough to store groceries, books, a change of clothing, shoes, laptop or any other essentials you would like to carry. Size of each compartment: 10 3/4" W x 12" L x 4.5"
- Inner compartments feature soft, micro-suede lining to protect all contents, zippered pocket and rain flaps.
All of Carmichael & Co. products are made the old-fashioned way, using 22 oz. heavy waterproof canvas, leather belts, reinforced seams with canvas trim, brass rivets and hardware.
We DO NOT use Velcro®, magnetic snaps or plastic fasteners on any of our bags.

Risks and challenges
Producing anything generally poses it's own set of challenges, however, with already two successful Kickstarter campaign under our belt for our Bike Bags, we are ready for our third project!
We continually maintain a very positive working relationship with our factory who stands strong with our production and delivery times, however, there are always unforeseen circumstances that could arise such as a delay in shipment, or selling more than we originally projected and having to push production a little further out (4-6 weeks).
With that being said, we have already submitted a best-case scenario projected unit purchase order as a heads-up to our factory for planning. This allows extra time for material/trim sourcing and production planning for sewing as well as planning for shipment. To date, we have not had any problems with delays in our shipping time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
