Hall of Fame :: Third Annual Carry Awards

Hall of Fame :: Third Annual Carry Awards

by , February 16, 2015

Many bags come and go, easily forgotten in the barrage of newcomers. A select few are more resilient, boasting special qualities that make them worthy of being singled out for a higher recognition – an honoured place in our Carry Hall of Fame. Iconic designs, game changers in their respective fields, the finalists in our Hall of Fame award are enduring pieces of carry that have captured the imaginations and hearts of users and made their mark on the carry world.

Now it’s time to make your mark and decide who enters the hallowed halls of carry glory.

You have two votes to use as you will…

And your 2nd choice just with the 1 point. 

Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag

One of the most recognized bags in the entire carry scene. This bag single-handedly (single speed?) encouraged many of us to seriously entertain the idea of becoming a bike messenger. And while this bag is certainly a classic, it’s never really faded from our view.

Karrimor Whillans Alpiniste 1964

Not just an iconic pack, THE iconic pack. This pack kickstarted the British outdoor industry as we know it today, and was the first pack that was widely available in colour – until then, most packs were made with army surplus fabrics left over from the war.

Arc’teryx Arro 22

With only minor tweaks since the mid 2000’s, this backpack continues to look fresh and relevant. Sleek and compact with solid construction, the pack is ready to roll with urban commutes or a day of downtime adventuring.

CamelBak Hydration Pack

25 years of hydration packs, spanning areas as diverse as military use and action sports. Born in 1989. There are not many carry goods that you can say have launched a whole industry – and it all started with an IV bag placed in a tube sock.

Hi-Viz and Mil Tac M.U.L.E.


The brand that turned baby-carriers into fashion accessories, the BabyBjörn has probably done more to spur kangaroo carrying than any other brand. The Baby Carrier Original is based off the brand’s original baby carrier design.
