Invoke the term "exodus" and you'd better be talking either about something epic, e.g., the Israelites following Moses out of Egypt to Mount Sinai, or something really epic, e.g., Ja Rule's greatest hits. Bear witness to a modern day exodus of bag makers, at Mission Workshop.
When Chrome Bags' two original founders decided to sell their company to engineer a new breed of urban man-sack under the name MW, little did they know half of the Chrome squad would voyage with them to set up shop in a dope warehouse design-cum-retail space bedecked with skylights, corrugated steel siding, and circular bag-showcasing stands that're fashioned from oil drums, for a look that's both crude...and refined. MW's centerpiece is a super-sturdy, cycle-friendly backpack with ample exterior pockets, a middle compartment that rocks unprecedented expandability (up to 4,000 cubic inches, despite the bag's compact appearance), and a waterproof/urethane film-coated exterior that comes in several solid colors or futuristic "digi camo" if you're awesome enough/Mario Van Peebles. While said back-sack's available now in either L or M, dropping next week is MW's first messenger, which features rolltop functionality for extra storage and weatherproofing, custom quick-release hardware, and a reversible chest strap so you can choose which shoulder your burden is born on, as long as its not the Fourth of July, because that was wildly depressing.
Sometime during the next few weeks, they're gonna throw a "massive" grand opening party, the sordid details of which're all still in the works. Be the first to get the skinny on that, and all other things MW by following them on Twitter, something Moses may not have been quite epic enough to be hip to, though you know Ruleyork is.
