Gulper 2016

September 07, 2016

The classic YNOT Backpack!  When we first set out to design a backpack it started with the Gulper.  While it's changed and updated as our line has evolved 2016 brings the biggest update yet! This tried and tested design with new dimensions, side release compression pulls and a swappable buckle design makes for a resilient pack with the ability to morph in size and shape, allows you to carry anything and everything. The separated liner, roll top option and sealed zipper ensures its contents stay dry whatever the weather.

This is the carry everything including the kitchen sink YNOT Backpack.  

Also now available in After Dark with Laser Cut Retroreflective backed Molle!

Cheer on the Jays with our new gear!

August 26, 2016

We've been Jays fans since we were kids.  We have fond memories of hot summer days spent at the Skydome cheering on Canada's team!  With the Jays hotter than ever and post season coming up, we wanted to create the gear that would show our team support and draw on the nostalgia of our World Series winning years!  We're hoping next year we can add 2016 to the design!!

Introducing our first MADE IN CANADA T-Shirt!  Manufactured in Toronto and finished at our own factory these 100% cotton tees have a great athletic fit.  Finished with our Champions patch, show your team pride and support Canadian manufacturing at the same time!

What would a line-up of baseball gear be with out a Ball Cap?  Our Champions Snap Back has your head covered and calls back to the glory days of our beloved Jays!

You can also just purchase our Champions patch on it's own.  Iron it onto your favourite YNOT Bag to support your team whereever your travels take you!

Have a great weekend and hope to see you at the ball park!
