This bag is the first one that I put at Bikurious. Last week I was there to buy some tires to play Polo and Marissa asked me to bring some bags to put on her shop and I gave her some pouches and this backpack.

Reading it, this title might sound strange, but in fact it logic that those two animals have met. The Bird from “Cycle bird” is a messenger company based in Montreal using only bikes for delivery and the Jabali is a guy doing bags for bike riders…

Cam, the Cycle Bird funder,  was yesterday at home for something to repair on his trailer and he saw a bag he took for one of his employees.


For me it means real use for a real test…. I will give you some updates based on this !

Some people told me that is was hard to imagine the difference between the two sizes ( Large 27 L and Small 17 L ).

I hope this will help you to figure it …

One day Minor told me “I want a backpack for my girlfriend, but this bag has to be smaller, but really smaller than the ones you are sewing now!!! ”

I understood what “really smaller” was when I saw Sarah’s fixed gear bike. Just imagine a little tiny frame designed for kids with 26 inches weels and you will have a good idea. This situation was a good opportunity for me to introduce one new standard small size .  It took me more time to make this bag because at the same time I was doing patterns. In addition I had to change a little bit  some steps of the  process, because with this smaller bag it was difficult to sew some parts to have a  good result as  I can do with the big ones.

So after those efforts I’m proud to introduce you to the new “Small” backpack :


Dimensions : 15″H X 11″W X 6″D
Capacity : 17 L
