Released today after a year of testing, the new Farewell Memory Palace is a New Mexico-made top-loading handlebar bag with a large flap-style closure and a roll-top main compartment secured with velcro. There’s a zipper pocket sleeve on the top flap for maps or other small essentials, side pockets with side release buckles for quick access items, and an additional sleeve pocket on the exterior of the side pocket for ride essentials like lip balm, lighters, pens, etc.
The bag has a removable rigid liner to help keep its shape, uses gated G-hook buckles on the top flap that won’t open up on rough terrain, and attaches to the bike using two Voile straps on the bar and shock cord to the head tube. Farewell includes four foam spacers to leave room for cables and fingers. The Memory Palace has a ~16L capacity and weighs around 790 grams (28 ounces) with the rigid liner and straps installed. The Memory Palace is approximately 12″ wide, 6″ deep, and 10-14″ tall, depending on how full you pack it.
The Memory Palace is offered in four colorways: Stone Blue with UltraGrid, Coyote Tan/Lilac/Teal, Marigold/Natural/Mountain Brown with White RVX25, and Black EcoPak with UltraGrid. It isn’t waterproof, but it is highly weather-resistant thanks to its materials and construction.
Farewell is dropping the Memory Palace on their web store at 2 p.m. MST today. The bags are pre-made, but it’s a small batch, so you’ll want to move quickly if interested.
