Rickshaw’s reflective backpack: It’s bright

By The Editors

Cargo space and visibility.

It’s hard to get enough of either in the saddle of your favorite two-wheeler.

Eager to up your stock of both:

The Dogpatch-based bagmen of Rickshaw and their slightly hyperbolic Amazing Reflective Backpack, now up for preorder.

In a nutshell, Rickshaw’s developed a futuristic synthetic wool tweed that stands up to abuse, looks stylish in the daylight (hello, herringbone) and flares up like a full moon when confronted with headlights on a dark stretch of road.

Well, any lights, really.

Rub is, this is a Kickstarter campaign.

Salve is, it’s fully funded nearly six times over and Rickshaw has a proven supply chain (not to mention a snazzy shop).

And the bonus for having a little faith: November delivery and a deep discount on retail.

Despite the campaign name, you get your pick of reflective form factors. Backpack, messenger or briefcase.

Shine on.
