Cred­it: Man­hat­tan Portage

Wel­come back, Clym­bers. We trust you had a fun and active Earth Day. We cel­e­brat­ed by donat­ing $1 from every order placed over the week­end to one of our favorite orga­ni­za­tions, Leave No Trace. And on Fri­day, around 25 Clymb employ­ees cut out of work ear­ly and spent the after­noon doing trail main­te­nance in Port­land’s For­est Park. Good times were had by all. But you know the best thing about cel­e­brat­ing Earth Day? No hang­over! We feel great and so should you because we’ve got an excit­ing week planned, start­ing now.

Here’s a lit­tle more about today’s events:

Its impres­sive prod­uct line includes award-win­ning alpine, alpine tour­ing and tele­mark ski boots; and out­door footwear for moun­taineer­ing, back­pack­ing, hik­ing and trail sports.

Lone­ly Plan­et: From remote vil­lages to bustling cities, Lone­ly Plan­et trav­el guides pro­vide inde­pen­dent, on-the-ground, analy­sis of the best places on the plan­et to vis­it. Today, The Clymb is proud to offer near­ly 100 dif­fer­ent titles fea­tur­ing loca­tions in the Amer­i­c­as, Europe, and Asia.

Man­hat­tan Portage: Born out of the chal­leng­ing and grit­ty land­scape of the New York City streets near­ly three decades ago, Man­hat­tan Portage was an orig­i­nal pio­neer of the authen­tic mes­sen­ger bags, which cre­at­ed a new, urban lifestyle and changed the face of fash­ion for­ev­er. The com­pa­ny’s design focus now also reflects the excit­ing but dif­fi­cult real­i­ties of the new cen­tu­ry and the chang­ing inter­na­tion­al envi­ron­ment. One part sky­line, one part street, Man­hat­tan Portage’s design aes­thet­ic is unique and refresh­ing. Check it out for your­self. We’ve got Man­hat­tan Portage bags and acces­sories avail­able for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

One of the great­est things about Port­land is how bike-friend­ly it is. While dai­ly urban bike com­mutes in oth­er cities may be a chal­lenge, for Port­land cyclists, it’s a breeze. With more than a half mil­lion bike com­muters, Port­land leads the way in this good-for-the-body-and-soul, and envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly mode of transportation.

That’s why when Erik, Lars, and Dan – long­time cyclists – decid­ed to launch a com­pa­ny that pro­duces sim­ple and beau­ti­ful gear for the every­day urban cyclist, Port­land was the nat­ur­al choice for their head­quar­ters. We’re excit­ed to wel­come their vision, Port­land Design Works (PDW), to The Clymb. Shop a selec­tion of pumps, fend­ers, grips, reflec­tors, and more at exclu­sive mem­ber pricing.

And no bike com­mute would be com­plete with­out a Chrome bag – per­fect for car­ry­ing your PDW gear and what­ev­er else you need to get through the day, these bags won’t tear if you take a tum­ble or become a sog­gy mess in the rain. Tough­en up your com­mute with Chrome mes­sen­ger bags and footwear.

Timbuk2, the San Fran­cis­co based mak­ers of styl­ish yet durable bike bags, recent­ly con­duct­ed a study to find out why peo­ple com­mute to work via bike. The word cloud below high­lights the most sig­nif­i­cant answers.

Pho­to: Timbuk2 Designs / Flickr

The ben­e­fits and beau­ty of urban cycling are at the heart of Timbuk2. They were found­ed by a city bike mes­sen­ger in a San Fran garage in 1989 and have been mak­ing cus­tom bags ever since. Addi­tion­al­ly, their CEO, Mike Wal­len­fels, bike com­mutes 38 miles to work every day.

Cycling to work is encour­aged here at The Clymb as well, with sev­er­al of our team mem­bers bik­ing in each day.

Con­sid­er Col­or with Gravis, Plus Hip­pyTree & SPY Optics

In this age of texts, tweets, and twit­pics, where infor­ma­tion is sent and received in the blink of an eye, it’s easy to for­get that there are still those relay­ing data old school. When doc­u­ments are too sen­si­tive to e‑mail, or plans are too detailed to fax, many com­pa­nies rely on city bike messengers.

Not to be con­fused with the paper boy who deliv­ers your week­ly coupons and fun­nies, being a bike mes­sen­ger isn’t a part-time, after-school gig — it’s a full blown pro­fes­sion with its own spe­cial skill set that must be mas­tered: inti­mate knowl­edge of a major, bustling city (San Fran­cis­co, New York, Chica­go, etc.), and ath­leti­cism and endurance to han­dle city cycling all day.

Urban bike mes­sen­gers aren’t just trans­port­ing doc­u­ments, they’ve got to pro­tect their tools of the trade as well: bike gear and tools to make on-the-go repairs and a walkie-talkie to check in with dis­patch and oth­er mes­sen­gers. It’s no won­der, then, that Chrome mes­sen­ger bags have been trust­ed with the respon­si­bil­i­ty of ensur­ing that all of their pre­cious car­go arrives on time and safely.

Mem­bers, you don’t need to be a mes­sen­ger to deliv­er a mes­sage. Fash­ion meets func­tion with Chrome bags, which are craft­ed from durable and extreme­ly tough mate­ri­als that are made to stand up to the ele­ments. When you don’t have to wor­ry about rain, sleet, or snow when it comes to your mes­sen­ger bag, you can rest easy know­ing that your belong­ings will arrive just like you, in style.
