Yes, it's a fanny pack and John Cardiel wears one ... because they are so damn useful! The Shank was made to carry tools on ride and keep your wallet and keys safe at night. It has an internal divider to keep contents organised. The Shank is part of the Cardiel Travel Series, a three-bag travel system designed in collaboration with skateboard legend and track-bike savant, John Cardiel. Made for John’s simple, resourceful, creative, and self-sufficient travel style, the three-bag system can be used in tandem or on its own — answering to every need from a two-hour ride to a two-week trip.
