A one-bag solution for adventure travel, an expedition-ready duffel, and work bags that transition from the road to work settings with ease. Welcome to the Week In Review…
Commuting in city style
Timbuk2’s updated Transit Collection rolls seamlessly from the commute to the office, with functional designs and work-friendly aesthetics. Collection highlights include the 22L Division Pack with a padded laptop compartment and interior storage for work supplies, lunch and an outer layer. If a bit more space is required, the Authority Pack can handle the job with ease, offering a 28L volume, plenty of interior organization, and a compartment to protect your tech. The Closer Case is available in 8L and 10L options and provides the flexibility to carry as a shoulder bag or briefcase. The Closer Case also features side-entry pockets for convenient access to the interior, a laptop compartment, and a luggage pass-through strap. Each piece is available in a range of colorways, with the collection launching on 15 May 2017.
A fresh take on classic Tanner Goods
Fancy Tanner Goods with a twist? The Cypress Collection delivers, offering solid Tanner Goods toughness with a handsome fabric combination that makes each piece a head-turner. The capsule caters to a range of day-to-day and travel needs, featuring the Wilderness Rucksack, the Voyager Daypack, the Everyday Tote, and the Drifter Dopp Kit. Each piece is crafted with lightweight and water repellent 1000D Nylon CORDURA® fabric, with further padding and protection provided by hard-wearing 18 oz waxed filter canvas.
A tough traveler for tidy toiletries
It’s handy being able to keep your toiletries in check while you cover the miles. Millican’s new Miles the Wash Bag is designed to help you do just that, with a wide opening for convenient packing and access, a pocket for organization, and a secure zip closure. In the event that something leaks or spills, the inner waterproof polyester lining allows for easy cleaning. The exterior is made with durable and weatherproof Bionic Canvas available in slate and moss colorways, and a lightweight aluminum hook enables easy hanging on the go.
Helping your adventures carry on
Looking for a bag that won’t slow you down on your travels? Cotopaxi’s Allpa Travel Pack is ready for adventure, with plenty of helpful features to keep you moving smoothly. The 35L carry-on backpack includes a clamshell-style opening with a choice of compartments for organization. A separate right side-access compartment stores a laptop and tablet, while side access on the left of the pack provides quick entry into the main compartment. In addition, a top compartment with interior organization provides convenient storage for quick-access items such as a passport. The Allpa includes a clean exterior and stowable hip belt and shoulder straps for snag-free storage in overhead compartments or cars, along with four grab handles for easy maneuverability. Further useful features include a raincover, theft-proof webbing sewn across the openings of exterior zippers, and a carabiner loop on the hip belt webbing to secure the pack to a fixed point.

Built for the road less traveled
Weatherproof, durable, and versatile, the Triple Aught Design Axis Expedition Duffel embraces life on the go. Made in the USA, the duffel comes in three sizes: 50L, 75L and 100L. The bag also offers three carry modes including removable padded shoulder straps that can be used in backpack or cross-body mode, or as carry handles. Also adding to the functional design are reinforced grab handles at the front and back, along with six side compression straps to help secure the load or attach items externally. The U-zip lid opens wide for easy access to the main compartment, with a zippered lid pocket for keeping smaller items within easy reach, and interior webbing attachment points for customizable organization.
