San Diego proved to be an amazing city to hold the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. We had a chance to cycle around the waterfront the day of the game and snap some images of the backpack we made for the 2016 All-Stars. Overall it was an amazing few days with fantastic weather, as expected. Congratulations to the American League for their victory and for securing home field for whichever AL teams makes the World Series.
This year's All-Star's and personnel received a pretty awesome gift bag, highlighted by our Lexdray x MLBPA Boulder Pack. It was the special 50th anniversary of the Players Association and a historic year to be part of. Special thanks to the other brands who helped make up the gift bags including Dream Hotels, Jason Markk, Incipio and more. Check out the images below showing many of the items received.

The Boulder Pack and Beijing Duffle are two of our staples, and especially perfect for working creatives, like the crew over at Beans & Croydon, a creative agency always on-the-go.
"The Beans crew, including photographers, videographers, and a creative director, have used these bags all over the world. Stuffed to the zipper with camera equipment, laptops, chargers, and everything else modern-day creatives need, these bags still show no sign of stopping. Robust, yet classic, these bags blend seamlessly into urban cityscapes, like Tokyo, but also more casual settings, like the images below which were taken recently along the Southern California coast."

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.
