Our v-neck Mason riding jersey is made with 90% Merino wool and 10% nylon to give the heat managing, odor resistant properties of Merino wool and durability of Nylon. Designed with a longer hem length for riding comfort and a double-layered shoulder seam for increased durability


The Operation Readiness Pack (ORP) is a lightweight, water-resistant rolltop daypack. We made it with fully-taped, rip-stop nylon to create the right balance of lightness and durability. The ORP works as a daypack and can fit a 13″ laptop in the internal back pocket. When traveling, it can be rolled up and stowed in the Cardiel Fortnight. The ORP is part of the Cardiel Travel Series, a three-bag travel system designed in collaboration with skateboard legend and track bike savant, John Cardiel. Made for John’s simple, resourceful, creative, and self-sufficient travel style, the three-bag system can be used in tandem or on its own — answering to every need from a two-hour ride to a two-week trip.

#messlife: Clean Your Bag.

Posted by: kris

When you use the same bag day in and out it can get a little cluttered. Decided to clean out my bag a couple days bag emptying both the stuff I carry every day and all the rand shit that sunk to the bottom. I was pulling everything from sea shells to bottle caps out from the dark corners of my Chrome Warsaw. An old package of hot chocolate (unopened) was probably the most random find…I should do this more often.
