Adjustable shoulder straps let you convert the bag into a rucksack or a backpack.
Multi-functionality is a critical feature for sports bags, which is why BMW has put it at the heart of its new Triathlon Bag from the Athletics Collection. The host of features of the bag makes it an ideal sports companion as well as an ideal choice to take along on an outdoor excursion.
The Triathlon Bag's adjustable shoulder strap lets you easily convert it into rucksack with a comfortable padded back to embark on an hiking expedition and can be readjusted to become a shoulder bag when you want to hit the gym, to the pool or to the track.
The BMW Triathlon Bag is the result of the joint efforts of BMW and the expert bag maker OGIO. The high-tech bag offers a generous 80 litres of usable volume plus lots of extra pockets for all the little things and features a myriad of compartments for organizing your belongings. There is a vented shoe compartment, two glasses pockets, a helmet compartment and two insulated pockets to keep your drinks at the ideal temperature, even on hot days. There are also three snack pockets, so that you never have to go too far when hunger strikes.
And for the all the expensive gadgetry like iPhones, BlackBerrys or your heart rate monitor, there is a special padded, lockable compartment. Yet, another compartment provides space for your shower gel, shampoo or a magazine. There is also a separate wet pocket, which is a perfect place to stash your wet towel after training or your flip-flops or sweaty clothing. Also, if you are traveling home in the dark, the bag's reflective elements ensure that you are being visible to passing vehicles. And also thanks to its tarpaulin-reinforced bottom, this robust bag is stable even on uneven ground.
The BMW Triathlon Bag is available through select BMW dealers and the official BMW Web Store. One of these awesome and sleek looking bag will set you back by 99 euros or Rs 6,000 approximately.
