Elegant style for everyday carry missions
Fall brings a freshness to the air…and in the case of KILLSPENCER, a fresh addition to your daily carry too. Embracing the season with some chic EDC, the luxury Los Angeles brand have released their Special Ops Backpack 3.0 Collection. Featuring seven pieces, the collection includes the Utility Special Ops Backpack in premium black full-grain leather and suede, with a choice of compartments for organizing your travel or commute essentials. The collection also includes the Special Ops Backpack 3.0 in a choice of full-grain leather or water-repellent duck canvas in black, charcoal grey and olive colorways. Each piece is crafted by hand in KILLSPENCER’s Los Angeles workshop, and features Riri zippers, a bullhide leather passport pocket, and space for a 15″ laptop.
A collab to warm the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts
Woolrich make durable outdoor clothing. Topo Designs make durable outdoor and EDC carry. Bring the two together, add in the beautiful fabrics produced from the USA’s oldest continuously operating woolen mill, and wrap it up in Topo’s multifunctional designs and you get something pretty special. A new 2016 collaboration between the brands teams four Topo pieces with a choice of three woolen fabrics from Woolrich. Each piece in the limited edition Topo Designs x Woolrich Collection is made by hand in Colorado. The collection features the Dopp Kit, Klettersack, Cinch Tote and Span Daypack, each available in Black Waffle, Olive Waffle and Western Print colorways.
Rebooted style for the Bootlegger
One suspension. Three packs. The modular Bootlegger Series from Boreas was born from the desire to provide easy carry adaptability for any activity. Now this game-changing series gets a fresh new look with the launch of the new Mercury Gray colorway. Featured across the Super-Tramp suspension, Torpedo hydration pack, Hopper daypack and Scrimshaw waterproof and submersible drybag, the new look brings a pop of vibrancy to your urban and outdoor carry adventures.
Rolling with the challenges of camera carry
Camera gear and air travel don’t go well together. But with the new Think Tank Photo Airport International V3.0 and Airport Security V3.0 rolling camera bags you can focus less on your gear and more on planning great shots. Using input from professional photographers, Think Tank Photo has added a variety of updates to the bags including improved handles, increased durability, as well as dedicated space for a laptop and tablet. Suitable for carry-on use, the bags include other useful features such as TSA-approved zipper locks, a cable and combination lock for securing the bags to stationary objects, water-repellent exterior fabrics, tripod mounts, and a Lost & Found registration system. The Airport International V3.0 accommodates two gripped DSLRs with attached lenses, as well as two to four additional lenses, a 15″ laptop, plus a 10″ tablet. The Airport Security V3.0 fits two gripped DSLRs with attached lenses, four to six additional lenses, a 17″ laptop, as well as a 10″ tablet.
Bold in blue for business and pleasure
The Briggs & Riley BRX collection is designed to provide key traveling features complemented by flexible urban style. Lightweight construction, multifunctional formats and practical organization make the range suitable for work or play – but a little flexibility to suit personal tastes is always a good thing too. Briggs & Riley deliver with a new blue colorway that looks equally smart breezing through the airport on your holidays or serving as an attractive alternative to traditional black for business travel. The collection includes spinners, upright rollers, a duffel, backpack and toiletry kit. The Add-A-Bag System across the wheeled pieces enables travelers to transport two or more bags as one, while compression panels and straps help keep gear secure and tidy.
