Week In Review ~ 16 February
This Week In Review is a mixed bag of awesome carry, from self-balancing luggage to a modern makeover of an army classic. So come on a trip with us and venture into the wide world of carry…
Take a load off during your travels
If you can always get away with minimalist packing during your travels, we salute you. However, sometimes you just need to cart lots of stuff and Club Glove’s Train Reaction System luggage sets are aimed at the latter category of travelers. Labeled as the world’s only self-balancing luggage system, the TRS luggage sets enable people to carry up to three pieces of luggage with minimal effort, letting the good times roll during your travels rather than your trip starting off as a drag.
Simms’ catch of the day
The new Simms Headwaters™ Full Day pack is likely to hook anglers pretty quickly thanks to a range of handy features such as their hassle-free Catch & Release modular system which utilizes magnets for attaching additional components to the pack as required. A 30-liter volume and plenty of interior organization makes the pack suitable for storing all the gear you’ll need if longer hikes are involved in getting to your favorite fishing spot.
Tumi’s tasteful carry candy
It’s good to indulge in some carry candy every now and then – even if it’s just the pleasure of window shopping. Tumi’s Bashford leather duffel certainly catches the eye with its chic looks and vachetta and glazed leathers. It’s large enough to serve as a weekender for overnight or weekend trips and has an external open and interior zipped pocket. Of course, this piece is carry candy for a reason…those sweet looks come with a price tag that may be a bit hard to swallow. Still, looking costs nothing…
Old-school versatility meets modern styling
Inspired by his dad’s military duffel bag, the founder of Whipping Post decided to create a similar bag but updated for use as a weekender or carry-on luggage (a luggage tag is also included with the bag). Made with hardwearing vegetable-tanned leather, the Military Duffel bag has a top-loading design with a shoulder strap and a grab handle and is intended to provide many years of use, just like the tough-as-nails army bags on which it is based.
Shift your approach to camera carry
It’s handy to think of MindShift Gear’s rotation180° Panorama as a smaller and lighter version of the rotation180° Professional (currently a finalist in our Specialist Carry Awards category). The backpack has a total volume of 22 liters (compared to big brother’s 29.63 liters) and is a good alternative if you’re digging the design of the rotation180° Professional but want a cheaper option that won’t weigh you down as much.
