With the fixie phase still going strong Incase has teamed up with bike enthusiast Dave Ortiz of DQM and skate nut Keith Hufnagel of HUF to create the ultimate all-in-one messenger bag. Combining two of the scenes most prevalent past times, the bag will keep your board strapped and your bike flash on those long ride trips throughout your city. Working closely with luggage legends Incase, DQM and HUF represent their own city’s steez with snazzy sewn on patches to differentiate the identical design.
‘The original idea was to make a bag for skate/bike trips that could be used to hold a board and some clothes while biking to a skate spot,’ said Ortiz. ‘As we started brainstorming and putting ideas to paper, it really evolved and went further than our original concept,’ added HUF. ‘We wanted to capture the attitudes of our cities in the individual patches that were created for the bag exterior. We didn’t want to take ourselves too seriously either, so we just had fun with it,’ said HUF.
San Francisco is represented on the front panel of the HUF Skate Messenger Bag through custom patches with DBC references and HUF’s signature H. DQM pays homage to New York City with a graffiti-laden waterproof interior panel and an exterior panel featuring a sewer rat and a version of the Statue of Liberty. Both bags feature the Incase for HUF and DQM logo wheel patch. The HUF and DQM Skate Messenger Bags have been produced in limited quantities and are available for purchase through the Incase webstore, HUF retail locations, DQM and better boutiques.
