Like so many rider, John Igei, a member of the FTC skate team, couldn’t find a suitable bag that is both well balanced and able to make the transition between storing skate decks, snowboard boots, or bike gears. So working with SAGLIFE (or SAGLIFE), the duo re-drawn the existing dimensions of bike messenger bag and created the FTC x SAGLIFE – Megatron Backpack.
Similar to a traditional messenger bag, the Megatron has enough capacity to handle the gears from all 3 sports, along with a sleeve for laptop. The polyurethane coated shell ensures the content safe from the elements. A large vertical reflective stripe keep rider visible in and out of city traffic. The key difference lay on the rear portion, where a padded back and dual straps permit a well-balanced bag.
After the immense popularity of the first release, the second variation, Megatron 2, was just launched. Alteration was limited only to the colorway, which is now blue instead of the original black, and construction, from polyurethane to the current reinforced canvas. The FTC x SAGLIFE Megatron 2 Backpack is available now at FTC Tokyo and online retailer STLESS of ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
