The Brooklyn-based brand Po Campo has debuted a new range of commuter bike bags called the City Lights Collection, featuring sustainable, recycled materials with reflective properties.
The collection comprises four models that are made from a material called Visi-Hemp fabric, which consists of a blend of 55% hemp and 45% recycled polyester.
Visi-Hemp has a soft, woven feel that’s used throughout the bags, while reflective thread is sewn into a pattern that mimics the appearance of a city skyline at night. In addition, the City Lights Collection has easy access pockets, along with Fidlock magnetic snaps.
“As the bike lane is flooded with more people experiencing the mobile lifestyle, we see them looking for gear that makes micromobility a better and more seamless part of their lives,” states Po Campo founder Maria Boustead. “This is where our specialty comes in and the inspiration for the City Lights collection. We’ve combined our desire to produce an extremely sustainable, user-friendly bag with innovative safety features to create a collection that meets the unique needs of micromobility enthusiasts.”
Advocacy plays just as important a role as sustainability with the new City Lights Collection, as Po Campo pledges to donate 1% of the MSRP of each bag sold to a nonprofit of the customer’s choice.
Ara Backpack (MSRP $160)
The largest bag in the collection, the Ara’s large capacity main compartment has two Fidlock snaps that can fit a 17-inch laptop or tablet and includes multiple organizational pockets and a stashable helmet harness. A side access zipper allows the wearer access to the main compartment, and there are two exterior water bottle pockets. In addition to the Visi-Hemp fabric, the Ara also has a reflective panel at the bottom, accents on the shoulder straps, and a bike light attachment point.
