Combining years of experience roaming all over the world, and passion for backpacks and travel gear, the Roam ByBLVD bag redefines the drawstring bag. With its minimalistic style and list of innovative features, Roam ByBLVD creates a whole new category for drawstrings. The result is a comfortable, stylish, and organized drawstring backpack for anyone on the go.

ByBLVD founders, James and Charles were roaming through San Francisco one day, and after carrying their drawstring bags all day, they noticed pain in their shoulders from the thin ropes. James decided to take out his gym socks and wrap them around the ropes. Immediately the pain went away and the idea was born.

“We are two friends who met while living abroad in Shanghai, China, with a passion for all things travel as well as travel gear,” said Charles Kariya, ByBLVD co-founder. “As world travelers who are always on our feet, we believe in durable, lightweight gear that simplifies the way we carry our belongings safely. Expanding beyond just comfortable shoulder pads for our drawstring evolved simply because as we used our drawstring prototypes, we wanted to add more convenience and safety features without compromising any of the comfort.”

The Roam bag is a 15-inch-wide x 18-inch-tall drawstring bag that can fit 14 liters. While roaming through China, James and Charles came across a soft fabric made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), which is both comfortable and extremely cut resistant. The unique shoulder pad design, made of special padding, coupled with the soft UHMWPE cut-resistant ropes provide an enhanced level of comfort-making Roam ByBLVD the most comfortable drawstring bag on the market. The bag also provides added security while ensuring the comfort levels are kept as it is made with a soft blend UHMWPE cut-resistant fabric and a steel-reinforced lockable strap.

Along with safety and security, the bag is enhanced with a bucket list of cool features. On the exterior, there is an integrated USB port to allow easy power charging for cell phones. There’s a back-facing, hidden access pocket, removable and adjustable sternum strap, and multifunctional, premium elastic webbings. There are 4 interior pockets, including a 3-in-1 pocket to safely store all of your personal belongings such as your wallet, cell phone, and mini tablets. The remaining interior pockets consist of a wet pocket, dedicated battery pack pocket that connects to the exterior USB port, and thermal sleeve pocket capable of holding a 1L hydration bladder!

“Whether you’re on a nearby hiking trail or roaming the beaches in Santorini, Roam ByBLVD’s ultra-lightweight, anti-theft, and comfortable design is meant to keep you going. Roam with us fearlessly, free, and far,” said James Lo, ByBLVD co-founder. “We’re excited to see where you roam.”

About ByBLVD
The wanderlust team at ByBLVD is amazed at the limited options of bags truly designed for the way people travel. They discovered there are a lot of folks trying to build the “smart” bag (where truly puzzling technology is created for the few) or the “all-in-one” bag built as large, complex bag “systems” designed to fit one's “bedroom closet”–the one bag to rule them all. At the end of the day, Team BLVD thought to themselves, there’s not one shirt to rule an entire wardrobe, why would people expect their bag to?

ByBLVD is simple. Build sleek, rugged, and functional travel gear that is truly essential-utilizing the best craftsmanship and materials available on Earth. They believe a bag is an extension of one’s personality and one’s unique sense of style. The result is to create travel gear that can be used day in and day out, and that will last a long time.
