The Vel-Oh Umi - incredibly versatile 4-in-1 bag


The Umi from lifestyle brand Vel-Oh is a versatile 4 in 1 bag easily converting from tote bag to shoulder bag to backpack to messenger bag, making it the perfect individual bag, suiting your everyday needs exactly. The Vel-Oh brand was originally launched to create bags for those commuting by bicycle and incorporated four key elements; waterproof, lightweight, stylish and versatile. Those elements are an integral part of every Vel-Oh bag and one of the two straps supplied with the Umi can be used as a stabilising strap making it perfect for use when out on 2 wheels.

The Umi is a simple design but extremely flexible, use it to perfectly suit whatever you need a bag for today, then tomorrow use it a different way. The Umi has 2 straps, a long one when used as a shoulder bag or backpack and the shorter one when used as a tote or messenger bag. Inside the main pocket there is a zipped security pocket for valuables such as phone, keys, wallet, purse etc. and the zip on the main is waterproof. The Umi measures 34x8x40/24cm.

The Umi is made from high quality heavyweight 100% 18oz British Millerain waxed canvas, to keep the contents dry. The handles and straps are made from heavy duty cotton webbing, this bag is leather free and therefore the perfect vegan bag.

Each Vel-Oh bag is handmade in Ireland using British materials.
