CHIMERA FOR MORALE
We brought on the genius Hadrien Monloup, one of the co-founders of Carryology, to design the morale patch and our very own mythological Chimera to represent this collaboration.
It would be a coming together of three creatures close to our hearts: the Owl, representing Bellroy and their brand logo/mascot. A kangaroo to represent Carryology HQ (as we were founded in Australia). And Rattlesnake, to give a nod to the USA side of the Carryology team (specifically Texas, where I reside).
It would be a patch designed for storytelling and performance – a four-layer print on a reflective patch, so you can attach it to your pack when on the bike or walking at night, and it’ll catch those headlights and keep you safe.
We took some inspiration from the Bellroy x MAAP Shift Backpack, which had two reinforced loops towards the base, there to add an LED flashing light for cyclists to be seen when commuting. We took these two loops and created a custom folding patch to wrap over and around, using a molded hook to attach securely.
Want to flash your Owl/Kangaroo/Rattlesnake Chimera patch? Attach it in just a second. Or keep your Chimera clean, pop your patch into a pocket, and have the option to add a bike light (or whatever else you’d like).
