Today we return with a new product review!
We are proud to publish this review about another product from Bookman, one of our collaborators (I think we have tested all their products... :-P) In this case we will show you one of their last inventions, the Bookman Reflective Bag & Backpack designed in collaboration with Notabag, a famous brand of cool bags for your daily commute.
Notabag ft. Bookman Reflective Bag & Backpack review and info
This bag is a clever combination of a bag and a backpack made from high visibility material as you can see in our photos taked with the mobile flash, you can see the difference between flash photos and normal ones.
Inside of the bag, there is an attached pocket where you can keep your wallet or you keys. When the bag is not in use, it folds into that pocket and becomes a hand-sized pouch, really really little, perfect to carry in other backpack if you want to use this Notabag as an extra bag.
The Reflective Bag & Backpack is only available in a limited number so don't wait or you'll risk missing out! You can get your own in their site.

Notabag is a young German brand and represents the same-named product, which was introduced in December 2012 through the Kickstarter crowd-funding platform. Notabag is a smart combination of a bag and a backpack. It is an environment-friendly solution that simplifies the active, on-the-go lifestyle.
Notabag founder Adnan Alicusic was inspired to create Notabag during a real life challenge, where a shopping bag on a bike’s handle bar almost led to fatal situation in a city traffic. He found himself stuck between the cars during the busy traffic and the shopping bag made the situation worse by limiting his ability to manoeuvre the bike. Wishing that he had a backpack with him, Adnan started to visualize a simplified solution to transform a bag into a backpack.
Some years ago a group of 5 friends all with different skill sets, came together over a mutual passion for cycling. Living in Stockholm, a very bicycle-orientated city, cycling is their main form of transport and they believe it is absolutely the best way to get around the city (and beat traffic). In amongst their comings and goings they saw a need for urban bike accessories with a twist so they decided to combine function with style and design and create Bookman. Their inspiration comes from the humming bike life they see in urban Europe where it is evident that getting on a bike is not reason enough to disregard dressing well. Their goal is to inspire more of you style-conscious people to see that traveling in the saddle can be a way of life that combines style, convenience, design and fun.
They at Bookman are continuously striving to design more functional solutions for your everyday cycling needs, focusing on the little details that have previously been overlooked and incorporating cycling and style in all their products. They aim to provide you with an ever-expanding range of different products to add a personal touch on your ride while keeping you safe.
They are featured in over 30 stores all around the world from concept boutiques such as Colette in Paris, to museum shops like MoMA in NYC, to more bicycle oriented stores such as ParkSIDER in Tokyo. You can also browse and buy their products right now from exactly where you are, through their online store. They have also appeared in some cool media forums around the globe; American men’s magazine Details, Velo’s 2nd gear book, British GQ, The Sunday Times Style, Nordic architecture and design magazine FORM, The Cool Hunter and on WIRED’s website, just to name a few.
