BURRO Gift Guide

posted by Jack Twachtman

Oh, the holidays. That time of year when we're forced to spend money we don't have on people we don't even like. Just kidding. We wouldn't really expect you to buy BURRO for someone you don't like, in fact we hope you really like the people you're shopping for. Either way, BURRO gear makes for great gifts. For pretty much everyone. Here's a little guide to finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

The Perfect Gift

We consider the Black Bag Combo an all-around perfect gift. It's got everything a guy (or gal) could want and you can get a ton of gear for a song! It's also really easy. You just choose a trim color and we send you a messenger bag, a hip bag and a set of pedal straps. You can choose their favorite color, match it to their bike, or just stick with black. You can never go wrong with black.

The Ultimate Gift

If you really want to spoil someone, go all out and get them what they really want - a LEVIATHAN or BEHEMOTH Roll Top Backpack! These gigantic bags are what men want. They can hold their entire life on their back with one of these beasts and they're big and tough looking and super comfortable. We use them for traveling or delivering large loads but we've also seen them carting around animals and people. They really are that big!

For Students

The student in your life needs a solid backpack or messenger and ours are the toughest you can find. They're simple and affordable (especially for an American-made product) and are now customizable. We've even added some new custom options to our already awesome DROPOUT Backpack. We guarantee that your student will graduate before our bags do and fully warrantee all our craftsmanship and materials.

We've also just recently added laptop and tablet cases to our line which can also be customized. They range in size to fit iPads, MacBook Airs as well as 13" and 15" MacBook Pros.

If said student is of legal drinking age, they will certainly appreciate our favorite novelty item, the PARTY BELT. It allows you to take the 6 pack of your choice with you everywhere you go so you always bring the party. Pair it with a webbing belt and throw in a hip bag to create the ultimate party accessory holder.

For the Urban Cyclist

All our products are made with the urban cyclist in mind so you really can't go wrong with anything in our shop. That being said, we have some items that really make cycling in the city that much more enjoyable. 

A BURRO Messenger Bag is always a safe bet. Our messengers are the most comfortable and versatile bags you'll find. Many of our customers were loyal fans of other brands until they tried ours and discovered what the perfect bag should feel like. The secret is our shoulder strap. It's swappable, removable, padded, articulated, moisture-wicking, tough and cool-looking. It's practically a necessity! You really can't go wrong with one. If you want to be extra-awesome, get them a custom!

Our newest product is the QUICKDRAW U-Lock Holster which solves the age-old problem of accommodating different sized locks and belts. It's one of the best products we've ever developed and is truly one-of-a-kind. 

If so-and-so rides a bike of any kind, they will definitely appreciate the comfort and ease of our pedal straps. They come in a few varieties for different types of riding. For the average daily rider, our entry-level strap is the REGGIE. They only work with platform pedals but don't worry, we've got you covered. Our Pedal Strap Combo pairs our popular REGGIE straps with Shadow Conspiracy pedals available in a wide variety of color options.

For the FGFS Rider

BURRO makes the best pedal straps on the market. They're easy to install and adjust on the fly and don't contain any metal components so they won't rust, they won't rub your feet raw and they won't damage your cranks. They're also competitively priced thanks to the low overhead we enjoy here in Jacksonville. For true FGFS riding we have 2 offerings. CHRONICs are our standard trick strap. They're super tough and they look great. The MTS Mudflaps are the creme de la creme of pedal straps. If you really want to make someone's day, get them a pair. Nuff said!

For the Ladies

Purses aren't made for cycling but our hip bags are! Depending on how much junk she carries in her purse, we have two sizes that should do the trick. We've seen many girls pair a hip bag with one of our webbing belts and wear them across the back or chest but they work just as well around the waist.

For the true ride-or-die chick, go for a Small Messenger. They're the perfect size for her and function as a stand-in for bigger purses but are far more practical for riding. She'll thank you for it!

For the Drummer

If you love a percussionist, they're going to love you right back when you surprise them with the most awesome stick bag or cymbal bag! They certainly aren't cheap but they are built tougher than any soft case you'll find at any music store. They're also customizable as well. These are brand new so your drummer will be quite the envy of his peers.

For Everyone Else

Just get them a t-shirt. Easy enough right?

Well, hope that helps some in deciding what to get the people on your list. If you have questions, we're always down to talk shop. Good luck and godspeed!
