If you’ve hurled expletives due to a damaged suitcase wheel, wished you could maximize the hands-free functionality of your phone or need somewhere slim and stylish to keep all your EDC safe and secure, this Week In Review is for you…
Making battered suitcase wheels a thing of the past

KILLSPENCER drops a new daypack
What happens when you cross KILLSPENCER’s Utility Backpack with their Daypack? Meet the sleek, compact and functional Utility Daypack. Combining pebbled black leather and black suede, the Utility Daypack incorporates a hand-quilted back panel and Riri water-resistant Aquazip zippers. Interior organization includes space for a passport, tablet, Moleskine notebook and more, while the separate back compartment fits a 15-inch laptop. Throw in a quick-access top pocket for smaller items and you’re good to go, whatever the day may hold.
Your daily essentials in efficient everyday carry
Cards, cash, coins, SIM card, key, phone…that’s a lot of stuff to carry each day. Not to mention a lot of stuff to hunt around for before you leave your home, especially if you’re in a rush. Bellroy makes life a whole lot easier with their new Phone Pocket and Phone Pocket Plus. Constructed from vegetable-tanned leather, each one holds all of these items, while the Pocket Plus also accommodates most passports. Handy storage sections for the contents let you access items quickly and the slim profile looks stylish in work, travel and leisure settings. In addition, the zip keeps everything safe and secure so you don’t need to worry about scattering your important belongings when you’re out and about.
More than just protection for your smartphone
There’s no shortage of phone cases on the market that will protect your tech in the unfortunate event of drops and scrapes. But how about one that enhances the hands-free functionality of your phone while protecting it? The Zero G case from Mega Tiny Corporation does exactly that. Available for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as well as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the case attaches to the majority of smooth and flat surfaces without being sticky thanks to nano-suction material. The Zero G case Kickstarter campaign has more than tripled its funding goal but there’s still time left to stick this in your future carry collection.
