'The Echelon' [M] is a 32 liter messenger bag that can expand and compress according to needs. We've always been a big fan of messenger bags for its aesthetic, practicality, and quick access. However, with heavy loads and long rides, it tends to tire one shoulder. The Echelon [M] messenger bag is our way of addressing that issue. we add a retractable secondary shoulder strap, that when needed, can be whipped out to even the load distribution across both shoulders.
A couple of robust magnetic sliding buckles not only makes opening/closing the flap fast and convenient but also satisfying and addictive. The ambidextrous shoulder strap design of the Echelon accommodates both righties and lefties alike without compromising fit and ergonomics. The Echelon also sports an adequate amount of varying size organization pockets to stash all your daily gadgets and knick-knacks, two detachable straps (sold separately) can be attached on both sides to secure items that are too big to put inside the main compartment.
The floating construction of the tarpaulin inner lining makes the bag 100% waterproof, the bag is tough and durable, built for messengers and avid commuters, we managed to pack all those features while maintaining a clean aesthetics, something we're chuffed to say proudly made in Indonesia.

I've had this bag for over 6 months of downpours, sleet, snow, and humid summers and it has been the best bag I've owned. It has kept the contents of my bag dry, which carries a change of clothes to and from work.
It's a hardy constructed bag. I wiped out on a hill and there's isn't any sign of damage. Road grit rinses right off so the bag looks as good as it did out of the box. The d-rings on the shoulder strap are a convenient place for a small radio or quick access to lock keys. The extra shoulder strap keeps my shoulders and back from aching.
This bag has made my commute a breeze and carrying easier. Next I'm going to get the Peloton.
After using this bag for about 1 year as my everday carrier i can Tell you, this bag is dope!
Every Part of it is sophisticated.
The quality is very high. Like i said i am using it like everyday, storm, rain, snow, sunlight doesn't matter and it has not a single scratch anywhere not even on the inside.
The shoulder strap is extremely comfortable and putting the bag on and off is as easy as you could wish.
What in the first place wasn't interesting for me at all , is that you can change the parts and wear it on the right shoulder - i'm troubeling with the left one since an accident. And that's done in like 2mins.
I just - again - had to transport a big package, no problem at all with the two straps on the side - done very quickly.
There's enough room for keys, wallet, lights, whatever and the front bag, reachable from left/right, comes in handy from time to time.
The yellow background let you find everything within a second.
Sometimes i carried a lot of weight and that's where the second should strap matters. Quick acces, you get it out and connect it, again as easy as possible. It's just more comfortable if you carrie like 20kg over 15km.
I didn't use the U-lock holster yet but soon i will buy one so i have a small lock with me everywhere. Awesome that there is one build in!
This bag is just as good as it could be!
I can't imagine having another one because every other bag i looked at is missing one of the great parts of this bag.
If i would habe known beforehand about the quality, i'd habe ordered the hip pouch with this bag together to save taxes.
Please guys, keep that high quality work up!

Rain ? should be no problem at least keep everything dry for the first hours to get place to hide :)
The Echelon ! lets ride
I'm always a big fan of messenger bag. Praktis, simpel, quick access. Sangat menyenangkan punya tas yang bisa dipakai dihampir semua kegiatan, dari komuter kerja, hingga bersepeda. Dari laptop, baju ganti, sampai peralatan dasar sepeda bisa masuk semua. Echelon M nyaman untuk dipakai. Strap ambidextrousnya memungkinkan menukar sisi strap menurut kebiasaan pemakai. Dengan cobra belt polished metal (optional), menambah nilai point of interest.
Desainnya simpel tapi detail, dengan kantong quick access, strap tambahan untuk overload baggage, dan strap - strap lain yang tidak hanya berfungsi baik tapi juga bernilai estetis tinggi ketika tidak digunakan karena didesain dengan baik pula ketika dalam keadaan tersimpan.
Waterproof, exquisite craftmanship. What else do you need from a messenger bag?
Bangga juga mengetahui ada bendera Indonesia di labelnya, hasil karya anak bangsa yang brilian.
Made for cyclists by cyclists
Excellent construction w quality materials.
Love the discreet handle amd second x strap, which helps distribute weight when walking. Laptop pouch is located in front of bag, which allows the bag to comfortably conform and sit on the back.
Magnetic buckles are secure but very easy to snap on and off in order to open the main flap. The external carrying system and easy access side pockets are also great.
Only suggestion for improvement is to add more EVA foam padding in the shoulder straps (coming from a Chrome bag where their foam padding is super generous) but still pretty comfortable. I added some additional shoulder pads.
This bag is the one for me. I looked at other bags and the reason I chose the Echelon M by comparison is because:
-the yellow interior so, I can find things easily.
-the computer sleeve is at the front and fits my MacBook Pro 100%.
-just the right amount of well thought out storage compartments.
-it looked comfortable in the images/video and it is.
-easy opening buckles that snap shut themselves.
-all components used are high quality.
-stylish, minimalist look.
First time I used it was a 20km round trip on my bike containing a MacBook, charge cables, ear buds etc and a spare sweatshirt. It was comfortable and stayed in position.
Second time was 6km round trip on the bike to the shops by way of the bank. I mention this as I had to carry my passport and used a compartment that I felt was secure but easy to access. Then filled it up with some groceries. Again the bag didn't move while I was riding. I didn't use the second shoulder strap even though I was carrying quite a lot of shopping, it still felt comfy on the shoulder.
Putting it on and taking it off is easy whether over your shoulder or unbuckling and buckling the buckle. I didn't order the Cobra buckle, maybe that's even easier, I don't know.
It's uber convenient and I can see this will replace my hand luggage when I travel. I also have the Tiny Houdini and the Musette which I'm equally happy with
To conclude, it's really well thought out, very well made, the right price (for me), robust, comfortable and looks good.
And, did I mention LBB are great to deal with. I dealt with Yohanes, who is super helpful.
Had this bag for nearly 7 years now
Yup, you read that right I've had this bag for almost a decade now and it's still in perfect shape. Not only is it durable it's very easy on the eyes. Cannot imagine my commute without it!
