Diamond Brand Gear for Cold Beverages and Wet Days

I’m using Diamond Brand Gear for cold beverages and wet days. The Double Take fits inside the Swift boxy bike bag I have from Swift. It’s a bag-in-bag solution to keep my beverages cold AND my gear dry. The Swift is great, but not waterproof.

I stuffed this inside a boxy bag.

This week, to get a ride story done in the rain, I had a film camera with me protected by the inner Chilly bag. That’s an accessory for the Double Take. It’ll work just as well chilling a 6 pack as protecting a camera from the rain.

The upcycled version of the Double Take.

Outfitted for outdoor travel, the Double Take gear bag is built to carry essentials with versatility and ease. It’s a product that looks like a crossover from the fly fishing market to cyclists and that’s great. The durable construction, paired with durable fabrics means it’s a lifelong adventure bag that’ll develop a patina.

The chilling bag stuffs into the Double Take (or Swift Ozette) to keep a lunch cool and secure. The multiple attachment points allow you to throw the Double Take over your shoulder. You can hook it up to your bike rack easily. The color selections mean you’ll get a unique look.

My bag shipped made with 14 oz. Martexin Waxed Canvas. You can also choose a 1000D Nylon Cordura w/ Urethane coating and durable water repellent finish. They make an eco friendly Upcycled tent fabric versos too. There’s also a sunbrella acrylic with 50% recycled material.

Headquartered in the heart of the Carolina Mountains, Diamond Brand Gear has been manufacturing high-quality outdoor gear for outdoor and travel enthusiasts since 1881. Buy the Double Take with Chilly Bag direct for about $103.00 direct from Diamond or on Amazon.
