Blaq Design Messenger Bags and Backpacks

Blaq Design was founded in 2007 in Kent, Ohio.  Their products have been selling so well on the West Coast, they have now relocated to Portland, OR.  With their eco-friendly attitude towards business, they are a welcome addition to the Portland bike community.

Blaq produces a messenger bag in five different sizes, and they will make them to wear on either shoulder.  The largest is called the body bag and for good reason.  You could keep a small child in that thing.  They produce a backpack in three different sizes as well.  And, if you head over to blaqdesign.com you will find some nice accessories like there v2 platform straps, belts to keep up your skinny jeans, and their hipstar hip pouch.

Jump past the break to see Blaq’s newest project.

This is their body bag model. It seems to be directly descended from Marry Poppins’ purse.

definitely the other end of the spectrum from DJ and DH bikes….. good to see them succeeding though.
