Chris Mcnally x Ornot MacGyver
Ornot Commissions - Chris McNally
Ornot operates with three guiding principles: Offer clothing with minimal branding and high-quality design, Make it here in the USA, and Connect with our community through rides, events, and projects. Giving a nod to the latter, we're pleased to introduce Ornot Commissions, allowing us the freedom to collaborate with local artists and bring to life fun projects that serve to showcase and cultivate our community. We are excited to introduce our first project with artist Chris McNally.
The man himself
Chris McNally is a San Francisco-based artist and cyclist. He’s known in circles ranging from dirtbag race organizers to fine art gallery curators. His work is a mix of watercolor sketch, screen prints, and filmmaking. It conjures up thoughts of the better times, even at the best of times. Warm easygoing lucid vibes ooze from his thick sharpie and outside-the-lines watercolor. He is a highly talented artist, and we are very lucky to have been able to work with him on this new project.
You, us and the in-between
The bags tell the story of two entities in San Francisco and the space between them. A map from Bernal Heights to the Haight, from Chris to Ornot. Taking notes along the way and sketching the scenes of everyday life in the city. The leaf sweeper, that old VW, the house on this hill and the trees on that one. You might not be able to come ride the city with us, but you can grab this little piece of that experience and strap it to your bike.
About the Macgyver
The MacGyver measures approximately 6.5 by 5 inches and was initially conceived as a tool bag to separate valuable, or non-valuable, items in the bar bag. We added functionality by adding two velcro straps and webbing for attaching it to things. It can be used as a seat bag, tool bag, bar bag, and more. The MacGyver is not waterproof, nor fireproof, but it can definitely hold things like:
- A tube, multi-tool, tire lever and a Co2 cartridge.
- Portable telephone computer (unless you have a giant one, 6,7+), wallet and a cache of almonds.
- Duct tape, swiss army knife, some paper clips and matches.
- Multi-tool, tube, tire sealant and a patch kit.
- Money. Giant rolls of money.
"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one." We didn't want to make a bag you could only use for one job, (we already have one of those) so we tried our best to come up with something multi functional and useful. The MacGyver is the perfect sidekick for any adventure you're going on, be it a ride in the park or escaping the clutches of another villain. Designed by Ornot and made by real human beings over at Rickshaw Bagworks right here in San Francisco.
