Hybrid bags are the future of backpacks and Solo New York has taken the lead with these new innovations to take you from Workout to Chillout with only one bag. These stylish new innovations are available in South Africa thanks to Gammatek, and it is proving to be an innovation that South Africans have been waiting for.

Since its inception to the South African market almost a year ago, it has become a fast growing urban lifestyle brand that is a must have for anyone that needs a versatile carrying device for a high demanding, active lifestyle. Apart from the versatility of the Solo bags, they are super stylish and offer a boatload of functionality and compartments for people on the move and that needs a bag to go that extra mile.

“There are days that you need to go to your office, meet a client for an off-site meeting, go to the gym and meet some old friends for a catch-up. It is just a hassle, to say the least, to have to go home in traffic and pick up some extra clothes or to carry 2 to 3 bags, for days like these. With Hybrid bags from Solo, you can keep your gym clothes separate from your office wear and still be prepared with some casual clothes for meeting your friends later on. It even has separate compartments for my laptop and tablet to get some work done” – says Gammatek’s Zev Cherniak.
