Yes, we're proud to have skingrowsback products at CG! They have built an enviable reputation for producing unique, bombproof carry products. And where they started in the bicycle courier scene (Our Bourke Street mechanic, James, still uses his pack from his courier days!!) they have expanded into adventure sports and cycling!
From their website:
"..skingrowsback produces functional high quality carry goods with a focus on the riders specific needs. Our objective is to create the best version of a product possible. We do not design or produce products to a target budget.
With a decade of experience and a solid reputation in the cycle courier scene for hardwearing and functional equipment, skingrowsback has evolved its street utility knowledge towards cycle and adventure sports.
With a broad selection of products for on bike and off the bike skingrowsback continues to manufacture all of its carry goods domestically in Australia. An extensive colour range offers a unique vibe for those looking for something beyond the standard issue.
The back story: Founded in 2006, Jamie and Catt started hand making backpacks and carrying equipment for local Sydney couriers. With practical working experience on the streets the duo were armed with the technical ins and outs of this demanding occupation. Being able to design products that work first and look good second was paramount, function followed by form.
Fast forward to the present day and skingrowsback has a much broader appeal. A number of different techniques were discovered in the development of some of the most hardcore courier bags on the planet. This is evident in the overall design aesthetic which holds true to this day.."
