Doubtless, the majority of our readers will have wondered what it would be like to be in the employ of Her Majesty’s Secret Service, but in reality it’s not as glamorous as it’s made out to be.
But if you had to transport a king’s ransom’s worth of banknotes through tropical jungles and foreign airports without being tracked, you’d enlist gear by SDR Traveller of San Francisco — and they’ve just added cycling accessories to their catalogue.
SDR Traveller’s range consists of light, strong and inconspicuous accessories and luggage, like the 1M Hauly Heist — designed for the “discreet, comfortable carry of up to US$1 Million in used bank notes while minimising the risk of radio frequency tracking.”
All of their pouches, packs and duffels are constructed from optimum materials for the purpose, like SDRT Grade Dyneema®, which is “about twice the strength of Kevlar or around half the weight.” Other pieces include passport holders and document wallets.
The range now includes the Courier 60 Pouch and Expedition Tool Roll, constructed as seriously as their other products. They might as well be radar-invisible. There’s no reflective details, because these accessories aren’t for those who need to stand out.
Once Dyneema® has been broken in, it attains a waxed cotton-like texture, is resistant to UV light, is a ripstop and is 100% waterproof. Handy for cyclists — it can be crinkled, or rolled up without losing structural integrity.
For a zen-like balance between the earth and technology, “a Pamir Mountain stone picked from tributaries along the Pamir Highway, one of the world’s great, and remote high-altitude bike rides” is attached to each zip.
