MEET THE RIDLEY
The Ridley is our compact, rolltop backpack; handcrafted from waxed canvas, weather X-Pac liner, and reclaimed bike inner tubes. It features a large interior pocket that will fit newer 13″ and smaller laptops. The Ridley measures 9″ wide x 13″ tall x 5″ deep (rolled) and 18.5″ high when unrolled. We chose the roll top style not only because it is aesthetically pleasing but also for its expandable capabilities.

We love waxed canvas because of its unique look, durability and how beautifully it weathers over time. Much like leather, it develops a unique patina as it ages. It is water resistant, 100% cotton and all natural. We use heavy weight, #10 Duck canvas. Once coated in wax, the fabric weight is increased to a hefty 20 oz per square yard.
MILSPEC BLACK HARDWARE
All hardware on this bag from the g-hook to the strap adjusters is made from a tough military grade steel. All the metal features a matte black anodized coating, which is more resistant to wear and tear.
X-Pac™ is a combination of ripstop polyester, hydro state waterproof construction technology, and 200 denier nylon fabric. This fabric is made in the USA and is super lightweight, durable, and easy to clean. Most importantly – this liner will keep your belongings dry if you get caught in the rain. All inside seams are reinforced with twill tape that not only makes the bag more sturdy but enhances it’s clean design.
Reclaimed Bike Inner Tubes
As always, we utilize reclaimed inner tubes while making all our accessories. They are durable, easy to clean, and are water resistant. The base of this bag is reinforced with inner tubes, for extra durability. The cinching strap and zipper pull are also made from inner tubes, which makes carry and use comfortable.
