Locavore: Bike packs made to battle rain

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

Velo_400_0201Don’t let Seattle weather keep you off your bike. Protect your belongings — even the electronics — with a waterproof, all-weather cycling pack by Velo Transit.

The packs are designed and built in Seattle specifically to withstand our weather, with welded seams and radio frequency (RF) liners to create a 100-percent waterproof pack. Cycling-centric features include blinker mounts, lock pockets and internal laptop pouches.

Ergonomic design and gender-specific harnesses are comfortable and keep loads from shifting, while bright colors keep you visible on the road. Each bag has a lifetime warranty.

$150–$215 at velotransit.com
