Week In Review ~ 15 December
We hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and starting to feel the holiday cheer but how about some stylish tech carry, wallets to help you to carry freedom and where to grab your own piece of luxury at discounted rates to make it even better? We’re checking it all out in this Week In Review, so kick back, relax and embrace the carry spirit…
Bag some luxury carry
The holiday season is upon us and it’s a time for giving. Luxury carry may be on a lot of wishlists but the painful prices often mean these pieces just stay as wishes. However, in the spirit of giving, there’s no better time than now to snag big discounts off a wide range of Entermodal carry courtesy of Handsome/Winsome who are currently hosting an Entermodal sample sale. Pieces include the likes of messengers, totes, wallets and briefcases so you can find something for that special someone (P.S. giving yourself a present still counts). Now we’re not going to lie – discounts don’t equal cheap and some of these pieces are still pretty pricey but if you’ve got the cash to splash, you can enjoy big savings. But don’t worry if you don’t, as some of the smaller items such as the wallets and card cases are more affordable but equally attractive options.
Personalized pocket carry
Anything that’s personalized is just that little bit extra special and if you’re looking for card and cash carry with a personal touch, this Backyard Denim wallet does the job admirably. The wallet is handmade in London out of vegetable-tanned leather and can be personalized with a name or initials. Each wallet easily holds three cards and unfolded bills and is individually numbered for some added uniqueness.
Make a carry resolution
It may be a tad early to start making New Year’s resolutions but there’s one that’s always worth putting into practice sooner rather than later: swopping your George Costanza wallet which looks more stuffed than you feel after overindulgent merrymaking for a sleek and streamlined minimalist wallet. Now just like keeping New Year’s resolutions is hard, choosing a minimalist wallet can be tricky. You need the right equipment to make sticking to your resolution as easy as possible. However, to help you on your way to increased carry freedom take a look at Gear Patrol’s buying guide for minimalist wallets and get inspired for a rewarding carry challenge.
How to make fellow passengers green with envy
If you’re lucky enough to be going on holiday you’re going to need some good luggage. RIMOWA does good luggage. In fact, they do top-class luggage, so quality is sorted. Now how about the color? Well they’ve recently released a number of their pieces in olive green as part of their Fall/Winter 2013 collection and they look pretty fantastic, not to mention eye-catching for snagging off the baggage carousel. The collection is available worldwide through RIMOWA’s flagship stores.
Trekking with tech
If you’re always on the go with the need to carry lots of tech and looking for a pack that combines smart styling with smart organization, the Booq Cobra pack could be a worthy traveling buddy. It has more than enough exterior and interior pockets to stash anything you need on a day-to-day basis, and the laptop compartment accommodates up to a 17-inch MacBook laptop, with dense padding and a scratch-free quilted lining to keep your tech safe and secure.
