For the number of items we are consuming you may think that we are being paid by the manufacturer, but then again if you are hanging out at your regular chai tapri and invite friends who also bring their friends to share the brew from the same cauldron that kicks in a fresh dose of energy with every sip, whats the harm? After all, good things are best when shared right? While the Neo forester replaced the traditional Backpack it also had a lot of “empty time”. Whenever the bag was empty I had to carry its weight and with an average range of 100 kms a day. This called for a solution – The Shellsack.
The Shellsack incidentally, was an impromptu purchase made from JP’s store – Open Road when I went to take a few pictures of the 2017 version of the DG 3 –HYDRATION AND UTILITY VEST. In discussion I requested for a demo of the shellsack and JP was kind enough allow a trial fit using my helmet. In went the helmet and out came the print from their card machine. For all of 950/- it may not seem justifiable however when you are talking a walk after your short ride to wherever (be it a stroll in the mall or around your ride destination) the helmet is snugly perched inside, don’t bother about your gloves just place them in the helmet and you are good to go.
In fact on a recent ride from Pune to Mumbai I carried the bag instead of bolting it onto the bike. Travelling on a weekday only to return to Pune on a sunday night with over 400 kilometers travelled in Mumbai city, suburbs and highway gave a brief insight as to what this could carry. Speaking of which they also give your a VISOR COVER (included in the cost of the bag) so that you can carry a spare visor for your journey, just in case you want to. Also the Shellsack has a net within to keep a few knick knacks like chargers, cables, batteries and also actions cameras securely while accommodating the “shell”.
