Meet the Fitzroy.

Meet the Fitzroy.

At Interbike Billy walked me through the Fitzroy and I got what seemed like it was going to be a fantastic little video.  Well… It wasn’t.  My new camera didn’t have a fast enough card in it and the video is chopped up and dumb.  Blogging is hard enough for me- to make a video was an undertaking that I should have known was out of my league.  That doesn’t change the fact that the Fitzroy is a solid looking pack.

Though I currently don’t own any Mission Workshop gear- I’ve been wondering more and more why.  I’ve inspected them at shops and love the packs.  This one especially.  It’s made in the USA and has a lifetime warranty.  It’s sexy, it’s got the cargo capacity (2200 cubic inches,) I really don’t know why I haven’t bit the bullet.  Sure, $219 seems like a lot of cash- but it’s not much more than other offerings out there.  When you look at how long a quality pack like this will last and the value of the things we sometimes carry in our bags (hello zippered pocket for your laptop!)- it’s really not much at all. 
I’m not really sure why they call it The Fitzroy- but I’m going with them naming it after Robert FitzRoy- the captain of the HMS Beagle, on Charles Darwin’s famous voyage.
So here it is- The Fitzroy:

You can (and should) check it out over at Mission Workshop.  It’s available online now and in the San Francisco Store tomorrow.
