When I am travelling for an out of town or abroad. I always choose a bag or backpack which is lightweight and big enough to hold all my essentials. It should be versatile and could fit my things while also being easy to carry. I try to avoid the hassle by packing all my things in one single bag and bring only the necessities that I need. I am still on a haunt for a stylish and sturdy backpacks until I attended the URGe launch. One of their exclusive brands at URGe is called Mission Workshop. Originally designed for urban cyclists in San Francisco. Mission Workshop is the only brand of bag I know which offers a lifetime guarantee, that's why they say its the only bag you will ever need in a lifetime.
URGe (Urban Rugged Gear) launches on Feb 27 at Greenbelt 1 branch. It was attended by URGe execs headed by Anthony Kierulf, Jay Tengo, Mia Tengo celebrities and media.
URGe, the lifestyle shop for the mobile urban warrior, unveils the latest lineup of products and accessories from their premium active lifestyle brands. I saw several types of bags in the store such as backpacks, messenger bags and duffel bags but the one that caught my attention the most was the Arkiv, its a modular backpack which means you can easily add or remove compartments depending on your need.
