Cardiel Fortnight-Black

Water-resistant travel backpack with zip-around opening and compression flap. Good for a week on the road with or without the bike. Made in USA. Guaranteed for life.


The Fortnight is a versatile travel pack with enough capacity to go for a week (two if you're John Cardiel). It provides the volume and internal organization of a wheelie and the mobility of a backpack. The Fortnight is low profile for enhanced visibility when riding. It has external pockets for travel documents and a compression flap for hauling a sleeping roll or jacket. It's part of the Cardiel Travel Series, a three-bag travel system designed in collaboration with skateboard legend and track bike savant, John Cardiel. Made for John’s simple, resourceful, creative, and self-sufficient travel style, the three-bag system can be used in tandem or on its own — answering to every need from a two-hour ride to a two-week trip.
