World's First Double-Sided Add-on Pocket Module Bag for Brompton

Inspirations come from everyday surroundings

 

When riding a Brompton, most carrier bags have their water bottle fitted on the back of the bag for easy access, but have you ever wondered “What if I wanted to detach the carrier bag from the frame and take the bag for a walk?”

To achieve a comfortable to carry Brompton bag, Wotancraft designer Albert Y. came up with the world’s first Add-on Pocket Module Brompton carrier bag.

 

“Birth of the PILOT”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Up till now,
Wotancraft’s Best Module System Bag

 

“1 + 2 Add-on Module System Bag for for different scenarios”

 

By integrating WWII tactical MOLLE concepts to the design, Albert Y. has come up with the new Add-on Module System PILOT Bag for Brompton’s front carrier frame. With the help of YKK quick-release buckles, module pockets can be taken off and installed to the strap loops located on the front and back of the bag in a blink of an eye.

 

 

Transform the PILOT Travel Camera Bag into a carrier bag simply by detaching the front pockets and installing them on the back of the bag. This way, access to your important belongings and water bottle will be made much easier.

Other than that, by attaching a shoulder strap to the Add-on Pockets, they could also be used as individual sling bags, convenient for strolling around when stationed at a certain location during a bike journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lighter the Better

 

“PILOT for BROMPTON - Light on the shoulders & on the bike”

 

We always hope for a lighter load when on the go, especially when bringing our Brompton onto public transportation. WOTANCRAFT has taken this into consideration when designing the Pilot for Brompton. The Pilot 10L and 7L only weighs in at 900g and 700g respectively (without the shoulder strap and front add-on pockets), making your trip easier than ever.

 

“How does the PILOT for BROMPTON Series achieve such lightweight?”

 

Built entirely from lightweight CORDURA ®, the PILOT’s canvas is at least 60% thinner than traditional canvas, 50% lighter, 10 times more durable and also tear-resistant.

Also, by reducing the use of leather and switching metal accessories to “Duraflex Accessories” (also used by Columbia / Patagonia / Mystery range / Lululemon), furthers the weight reduction of the bag, leaving precious room to carry more gear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CORDURA® Waxed Canvas

 

 

 

“Water Repellent, Anti-Tear & Lightweight”

 

For the love of the canvas, early Wotancraft bags were built from traditional waxed canvas. However, due to the bulkiness of traditional canvas, Wotancraft has developed a new lightweight CORDURA Ⓡ Waxed Canvas. Presented as cotton-like fabric, the new CORDURA Ⓡ canvas is soft and durable, unlike ordinary CORDURA Ⓡ that has a plastic-like texture.

Wotancraft’s CORDURA ® 500D Waxed Canvas is 50% lighter than traditional waxed canvas and is coated with Teflon and PU Laminated Interior Coating to repel rain from seeping into the bag.

With use, WOTANCRAFT waxed CORDURA ® bags will develop light shaded scuff marks, similar to the “fading” effect you find on raw denim pants. Even with the lack of leather and metal accessories, the PILOT still inherits Wotancraft’s “Vintage Soul” vibe.

[ Appearance ]

 

A True Lightweight Camera Bag

Built entirely from lightweight CORDURA ®, the Pilot’s CORDURA ® is at least 60% thinner than traditional canvas. Also, by using “Duraflex Accessories” (also used by Patagonia / Mystery range), the Pilot’s net weight is kept under 1kg, leaving more room to carry more gear

 

Hidden Zippers

With all zippers hidden from sight to prevent pickpocketing, the Pilot is a secured bag for traveling

 

“Triangular Side Flap” Design

Specially designed by Wotancraft, the “Triangular Side Flaps” allows the lid to be flipped all the way to the back of the bag, making it easy to access the main compartment. When closed, the side flaps on the lid prevents rainwater from seeping into the bag and avoids small accessories from falling out of the gaps

 

Vintage Brass Buckle

To achieve the iconic WOTANCRAFT vintage look, the hook buckle is made of brass metal with matte black coating, which develops a gradient fading with use, like a vintage Leica camera

 

[ Designed for Travelling ]

Allowing the Pilot to sit firmly on a trolly, a 17 cm opening luggage handle strap has been added to the back of the bag.

Easy to access but hidden from sight, a hidden zipper net pocket is located in the front to place your passport and boarding pass

For a more even weight distribution over the shoulder, the shoulder strap and padding have been widened

 

 

[ Designed for Photographers ]

 

Quick-access Zipperless Opening

“Seashell Flap” wide opening allows quick access to your gear and prevents your gear from being scratched by zippers

 

Tripod Stabilizing Straps

Located on the bottom of the Pilot, there are 2 adjustable straps for stabilizing your tripod

 

Distributing Load Evenly

To ensure the bag stays upright at all times, Duraflex 360° rotatable rings has been added to each end of the strap
