SF - Freight Baggage/Travis Poh
 
He said that he was sponsoring a couple of races in the coming weeks (this was about 10 days ago or so) - and I've also heard that he has intermittent 'net access.

I'm getting all itchy to discuss bag options with him - should I call?

yes

Kilgore_Trout 04-16-07 09:03 AM

i just e-mailed him. he's swamped until like mid-may and won't be taking orders until then

sers 04-16-07 08:14 PM

definately worth the wait

forum member mcatano is selling a freight bag in the forsale section

mcatano 04-16-07 08:35 PM

He's swamped, he's going to Japan, and he's always best reached by phone. Also, a very sweet guy.

Also, yeah, my sling is still for sale (to fund a freight backpack no less).

BDS 04-16-07 10:27 PM

All -

Thanks for the replies. I haven't had a chance to make the call, but will tomorrow.

mcatano - I've actually checked out your For Sale Sling - however, due to a busted collar bone, I'm hunting for a backpack myself. 100% worth the wait, too, from the looks & comments others have made about his work.

I'm excited.

I love my Freight backpack. Travis for the win!

Dude needs a website and/or to check his email every couple of weeks....

yep - your Flickr photo show was a big incentive. that, and reading jacobs comments on the bag. and a few other people who have posted teh infos here. and stuff.

if I could have one wish though, it'd be that there were a few more people using/posting some snapshots of his work.

Absntr - for picking colors, did you just refer to another website that displays the Codura choices?

absntr 04-17-07 08:42 PM

I've seen enough of his bags to know what I wanted -- I ordered the bag shortly after I made a trip to SF and rode with and saw some friends out there. I also got to try the bag on so that helped a lot as well. I went with a simple colour choice though -- the black, the grey and the marigold, which is a richer yellow/gold than the yellow he has.

There's a PDF/image of his pseudo catalog which tells you stuff. It's sort of daunting since he doesn't have much stuff online -- fortunately, I know enough people with his stuff ans have seen enough of his bags to make a trusted call, so I understand your frustration.

You can also do a search on Flickr for freight baggage or travis poh and you should bring up some results.

i just bought a freight hippack from my lbs, and so far i really like it . it's bigger than the reload one (i think), and seems compeltely waterproof.

drewcifer 04-17-07 09:20 PM

wow those prices are pretty damn good.

and look at how gorge this color is http://farm1.static.flickr.com/30/47...6066ce.jpg?v=0

BDS 04-18-07 12:21 AM

You know, I promise that I've searched flickr at least 6.19 times for "freight baggage" "Freight Baggage" blah blah blah blah blah - and the only hits I was getting were from Absntr's photo collection, and now there they are.

I'll be d4/\/\n'd - so many nice looking bags.

Also - I've actually bookmarked that PDF image - its on page 3 of the Giant Bag thread here.
Pretty helpful stuff, although I think that his prices have change marginally since that was printed/published.

Bikkhu 04-18-07 12:34 AM

That travel case looks good, btw. Wonder if its collapsible?

I've put a link to his gear on fyxomatosis.

Websites are so 90's. I suppose that makes them retro, no?

Go Travis, Go!

The phone number's right there at freightbaggage.com. Give the dude a call like a real human.

dmg 04-19-07 09:25 PM

Cool, you think he'll fax me a catalog then?
