FAQs About the Velomacchi 35L Giro Backpack 

You’ve got questions. The Drive has answers.

Q. Where does Velomacchi’s name come from?

A. According to the company, it’s a combination of the Italian words velocita and macchina, or velocity machine. The company says you pronounce its name, “velo makki.”

Q. How big of a hydration pack can I fit in a Velomacchi backpack?

A. Velomacchi says it’s tested up to 3.0 liters, but the most suitable version is between 1.0 and 1.5 liters.

Q. Can you wash the Velomacchi?

A. You can with cold water and a gentle detergent. Consequently, I just left mine out in the rain after a particularly gnarly off-road session, and it did the trick. 

Q. Is it fully waterproof?

A. Listen, you can’t dunk or submerge the bag into a lake or something, but rain, sleet, and snow aren’t going to get in.
