Our Whistler Pack was designed with outdoor enthusiasts and bicycle commuters in mind; so we equipped the bag with 9 pieces of reflective elastic allowing cyclists to be seen from any direction. Take a look as experienced cyclist and photographer, Matt Lingo (@notmattlingo), captures the Whistler Pack in action during a recent night shoot in North Park, San Diego. Huge thanks to our cyclist seen in the images, David Afterlife.

Good news, people who carry your phones in a belt holster—we’ve got you covered. We're releasing an extremely limited run of our new Barstow Cell Holster next Monday, April 4th. The water-repellent holster features custom hardware that allows you to easily slip it on to any belt. Its magnetic closure and one-hand quick draw design allows for instant access to your favorite apps. This technical holster features a ballistic nylon exterior with fleece lining to protect your phone—and your style.
We are extremely honored and proud to have seen our product launch last week at one of our favorite stores in the world, Isetan. If you haven't heard of Isetan, they are located in the Shinjuku region of Tokyo and they are a must visit for any shopping enthusiast while traveling in Tokyo. Their selection of product is second to none. Make sure to check out the Lexdray display on the 2nd Floor should you be visiting in the coming weeks. We look forward to a long relationship with the storied Japanese department store.
While our products are viewed as skewing more towards gentleman, we're thrilled to see more and more women starting to wear our products. Special thanks to all the female Lexdray supporters out there!Items pictured below:

An enormous thanks to the team at Cult Edge for helping us spread the word regarding our initiative to raise money for Little Kids Rock, a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides free instruments and music education to kids in underserved public schools. Together with Tony Royster, Jr. we are donating a percentage of sale proceeds for each Lexdray x TRJR Case sold in December and January. Please help us support this worthy cause.
One of our personal favorite blogs, Uncrate, recently included our W15 "Red" Tokyo Pack in the Globe Trot feature. Take a look!
Thank you Fatlace for including our W15 Red Tokyo Pack as part of your 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. We appreciate the support.
Lexdray to Donate Portion of Sales Proceeds to Benefit Music Education
We are giving back this season with a brand new initiative featuring world-renowned drummer and Lexdray brand ambassador Tony Royster Jr. We've teamed up with Tony to offer his collaboration drumstick bag with a percentage of sales going to Little Kids Rock - a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides free instruments and music education to kids in underserved public schools.
The Lexdray x TRJR Case features various internal and external compartments as well as Tony Royster, Jr. patches and labels. Made from water-resistant nylon and twill, the case doubles as a durable everyday bag, with enough space for up to a 17-inch laptop. 500 pieces were produced as part of the collaboration.
Royster Jr. is regarded as one of the world's top drummer prodigies, and has toured with everyone from Joe Jonas to Jay-Z. Just 31 years old, Royster Jr. is also known for his philanthropy, holding free drumming workshops and motivation talks in communities across America.
To support Royster Jr.'s work and as part of Lexdray's commitment to social good, we are donating 15% of sales proceeds from the drumstick bag to benefit Little Kids Rock, starting today through the end of January 2016.
"As a music lover and father to two young kids, it only made sense for us to use this collaboration to promote music education in schools across the country," said Alex Drayer, founder and creative director of Lexdray. "By purchasing the Lexdray x TRJR Case, you are not only getting a go-to accessory for drummers and commuters alike, but also equipping thousands of students with musical knowledge and experiences for the future."
Since 2002, Little Kids Rock has given more than 400,000 underserved schoolchildren across the U.S. access to fun, engaging, music classes and brand new instruments at no cost to the students, teachers, or school districts.
