When you go out, there are smart phones, wallets, keys, and some people have baggage such as sunglasses, notebooks, writing tools, cameras and tablets. The baggage that I carry every day is called "EDC (Every Day Carry)", but when putting it collectively in a bag, it becomes irritating and it is difficult to store it beautifully.

You can see what kind of shoulder bag "bolstr" is with the following movie.
Even though you just go out for a while, you need the wallet, smartphone, key etc at the minimum, but if you put it all in your pocket you will be uncomfortable, carrying a big bag to carry everything is too hard.
A compact and functional shoulder bag that collects such luggage is "bolstr".
Since the waist belt is also attached and the bag body can be fixed to the body, it seems to be useful when riding a bicycle.

I take out the smartphone and take a picture.
The front pocket can be opened and closed with Velcro, and it can be stored even while connecting the charging cable.
