We first reviewed Cotopaxi gear within the fall of final 12 months, and their attire and packs regularly turned a staple of our wardrobe (and family). Personally, I purchased a backpack for my spouse for Christmas (the Tasra Del Dia) which she loves, which I then additionally purchased for myself, as a result of it’s the perfect private merchandise bag for air journey (it converts from backpack to briefcase-style in seconds). I couldn’t cease there – I additionally sprung for this summer season’s Cotopaxi x Teva collab. Suffice it to say our household journeys seem like a Broadway revival of Joseph and the Superb Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Now, whereas Cotopaxi isn’t precisely identified for working gear, they actually have their toes within the run world. Living proof – their backpack collaboration with HOKA earlier this 12 months. Right here at Imagine within the Run, they’re what we prefer to name “run adjoining,” (i.e. gear that is probably not meant for the run, however that runners will definitely love). We assure you’ll love the gear under, from a high-quality cinch bag to laze-around joggers for these post-long run Saturdays.

The Modal is draped in quite a few daisy chains for much more quick-access storage and safety. Oh, we completely forgot to say the colours.

I personally use this as my each day bike commute bag. It holds my laptop computer securely in a separate compartment whereas the daisy chains maintain my bike lock on the again. The 20 liter quantity is the right quantity to hold lunch and a change of garments (and even a pair of sneakers). I additionally respect the entrance pocket and the straightforward cinch closure.

Nevertheless, bear in mind that this certainly is a cinch bag, so don’t get caught within the rain with something you don’t wish to get moist. That mentioned, the zipper on the entrance pocket is a flatlock seam so ought to maintain your telephone dry. One different ding – the ought to straps are too shut collectively within the center, which might trigger abrasion on the neck should you’re biking and cinch the bag down tremendous tight. I also needs to notice that whereas the bag is incredible for taking to races or the observe, it isn’t good for an precise run commute, because it doesn’t have a waist belt (and on account of the aforementioned strap abrasion).
