United By Blue Organic Bike Bags

United By Blue is company focused on organic products and founded on the principle of directly cleaning up 1 pound of trash from oceans and waterways through company organized cleanup days, and they have recently launched a Kickstarter project to bring organic canvas and leather bike bags to market. The organic cotton canvas is lightly waxed for water resistance and trimmed with stitched leather, with brass buckles finishing off each bag. The pictured handlebar bag is available at the quite reasonable $60 buy-in level, with a larger pannier and smaller cell-phone holder also available. I loved waxed canvas even if it’s ultimately not as waterproof as some synthetics, nothing has the look and feel of a worn canvas bag that shows the journeys it’s been through. If you like the look and the pricing you still have a few days to make these bags a reality.
