'Yabai' is Japanese for dangerous, and in slang means awesome/cool/dangerous/ hectic/crazy etc. Like many popular words people just throw it in to add some edge or emphasis. 'Yabai Country' directly translates to both "Danger Country" and "Rad/awesome Country" - so 'Stay Free'. For us this is a reminder that we can take things that are challenging and turn them into something rad; our freedom is ours to take, internally, and externally.
"The design Cale and I created for this bag is inspired by my dear Marty's rock climbing harness. He taught me how to climb in it, and had been using it since his childhood so it's dripping in 80's colours, colours that hold such beaut summer memories of time spent with this wondrous human. Of the freedom we found together, and then apart."
