Founder Robert Aldus poses with a pair of KitBrix’s configured as a backpack while behind him four of the units organize the back of his SUV.

UK brand KitBrix introduced their clever modular gear “brick” system designed to help organize and transport gear, tools and supplies. Inspired by military gear sacks, KitBrix placed a high-priority on wear-and-tear proofing the bags so they could withstand the abuse cyclists and other athletes inflict on their gear.

Each $75 KitBrix is made of a thick, double skin, waterproof tarpaulin material and features zippers for attaching the units to each other as well as a myriad of pockets and slots for tucking gear. Company founder Robert Aldous says the system is good for organizing at home, in the boot of a car, truck or SUV, or the transition area of an adventure race, triathlon or 24-hour race.

The organizing containers have rubber booted bottoms and come with padded straps for use as an over-the-shoulder carry, or–with two or three KitBrix–in a backpack configuration. While you could zip an infinite number of KitBrix’s together, Aldus has gone up to 14 for kicks, but recommends five or less for practicality sake.

The Brix come in a variety of colors with use-icons to indicate the contents. Aldous says he’s developing a system of dividers that can be placed in the KitBrix to further partition the bags–which would be of particular use for tools and first aid supplies.

The bags are currently available in the UK and should launch in the US by November.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born editorial director Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and pedaling for Mtbr, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
