Wants & Desires | Walz Cycling Caps

A new addition to The American List is Vista, California’s Walz Caps. I learned about the company — as I do many good American companies — through the esteemed blog Archival Clothing. Bicycle caps can be tough to pull off, but the Walz caps do a terrific job of melding form and function. The ear flapped wool hats are the perfect cover for rebuffing the cold and are well priced. The cost is especially good when you consider the caps are made right here in the U.S. The entire Walz Caps offering can be seen here.

Pragmatic Cycling Supplies

Ignoring the potential risk of being branded a canvas bag blog, allow me to introduce you to the Minnehaha Bag Co. I first learned about the company from an ACL reader — thanks Kevin — a few weeks ago. The canvas and leather bags are designed to be simple, affordable, utilitarian carryalls that get better with age and use. The concept for the Minnehaha bags was hatched on a 75 mile ride from Hinckley to Duluth (hometown of the classic bag company Duluth Pack) by two avid cyclists or as they say “bike nerds.”
