If you love to run and you live in a city like New York, you’ve probably already realized its very difficult to bring your belongings with you, which can be extremely annoying. Worry no more, because we have the perfect bag for runners to carry on them for a run or jog.
We brought the fanny pack style back and made the “Retro Pack”. Now while you are on your run you can carry your Ipod, phone, keys and any other personal belongings you need while looking hip at the same time. The Retro Pack can be used for a waist bag (fanny pack) or cross body bag. Making it the perfect bag to bring with you on your run.
The Retro Pack comes in 9 different colors, so there is a bag for every type of runner. Check out the Retro Back HERE!

One of the best ways to get exercise and clear your head is to take a hike. Hiking is a great way to get exercise with beautiful scenery around you that will be different each time you go on your journey. Let’s face it, the treadmill and elliptical get boring after a while, so why not try exercising in nature? Hiking is great for all fitness levels, whether you want to try uphill for a more intense workout, or stay on a level path for more of an intermediate workout- the choice is yours.
Not only is hiking great for toning your body, but it’s also wonderful for your mental health. Hiking outdoors may relive stress, and also may help one feel closer to nature which can relax the mind. After you are done hiking you will have a sense of achievement because you’ve just finished your daily hike, which is always a positive feeling.
If you are a hiker, or want to start hiking you may need a backpack. Our Hiking backpack featuring Cordura fabric will be your best friend. Check it out HERE!
This backpack is a new version of our popular Ballistic Backpack (2103), constructed out of rugged and durable 1000D CORDURA® Classic fabric. The spacious main compartment and comfortable shoulder straps make this bag the perfect accomplice for all of your hiking trips.
Now, go outside and take a hike!

One of the many things we love about NYC is the fact that you can bike almost anywhere. For some, biking in NYC may seem a bit scary with the crazy traffic but there are actually a lot of areas where you can bike in your own bike lane or dedicated path. Whether you bike to work, the grocery store, or escape to a park for mountain biking- NYC has it all.
We found a great NYC biking planner and had to share it with our Manhattan Portage fans, so check it out here: Ride The City This site uses the official NYC DOT bike map to plan the safest bike routes.
Fun Fact: New York developed the country’s first bike path in 1894!
