My Rickshaw bag in traveling action
Here's an action shot of me and my Rickshaw bag in Apollonia!
Apollonia is an ancient Corinthian, and later Roman, city in Albania that's a couple hours' drive from where I live. My family and I had a great afternoon among the ancient ruins!
Some details: this is a Small Zero messenger bag from Rickshaw Bagworks (who also make the awesome Moleskine folios, and now custom iPad sleeves too!). It's called a Zero bag because there is zero waste in the production. Even the little scraps from cutting the material are used in the production of the bag.
I used their Customizer to choose the exact colors of my bag. The purple color is called Iris (they also have an Amethyst purple that's slightly more bluish). The trim is Pink.
I carried my lunch, guidebook, sunscreen, and enormous 2 liter bottle of water (which I removed for the photo for a better shot of the bag) up and down the hills all afternoon and hardly felt a thing. I told my husband, I can tell it's a well-designed bag if I can carry this much and it feels so easy!
Thank you Rickshaw for an excellent bag!
You can also see this photo on Rickshaw's Facebook page along with my and their comments about it! They mistook the location for Italy though, and I corrected them that it's Albania. Just across the water from Italy!
