In The Press: Carryology’s Ultimate Travel Gear List That Will Change the Way You Travel

“The North St. The Weekender Backpack checks all the boxes for me and is one of my favorite backpacks for most trips in the five-plus day category,” writes Zeke Kamm. “I LOVE the visual style of the bag and if I had to bring a bunch of stuff around with me to work or school, this would be my top pick for best everyday bag, too.”

Closing the Loop: From Trash to Bike Bags

Closing the Loop: From Trash to Bike Bags

Take a look inside North St.'s upcycled program. Event tents and banners often get tossed once they’re out of date, despite being in perfectly usable condition. Deadstock is thrown out. And it’s true, things just aren’t made the way they used to be. With the rising costs of inflation, labor, materials, production, and transportation, many manufacturers skimp on quality to keep familiar prices, inadvertently decreasing product lifespan. All of this leads to more materials piling up in the landfill—but it doesn’t need to be this way.
