Nimble and fast scouting in crowded terrain
Living up to its name, the Cargo Works Recon 15 is a lightweight and sleek pack that lets you move easily through crowds or on a bike. Crafted from 500D Cordura Nylon, the bag weighs in at 2 lbs (0.9 kg) and provides plenty of organization. With 8 exterior pockets and 10 interior pockets, including dedicated storage for a 15″ laptop and a tablet, you can keep gear tidy and within easy reach for EDC and travel needs.
Designed for everyday indulgence
Enjoying a little luxury now and then is good. But what if you could indulge in it every day? With the new Bellroy Designers Edition range you can. This range is all about reveling in the design details, with beautiful silhouettes, environmentally-certified top-grain leathers tanned in The Netherlands, and refined construction. The range features the Folio Wallet, Note Sleeve, Zip Wallet, Travel Wallet, and Card Slip, each of which exudes quality and style so you can embrace a touch of luxury in your daily and travel carry needs.
Military-tough tech protection
Your tech isn’t designed to take a beating. But buff it up with armor and you can worry less about life’s bumps and scrapes and focus more on the job at hand. Urban Armor Gear’s latest drop-tested cases are designed to protect the 4th Generation MacBook Pro 13″ and 15″ laptops, with and without the Touch Bar. The cases meet US military drop test standards and include a range of useful features such as a tactile grip on the hinge, an armor shell and impact-resistant bumpers, and cooling vents for unhindered air flow.
You don’t always know where travel may take you. But with the Victorinox Vx Touring collection you do know you’ll get there in style. The collection includes a range of carry-on bags, duffels and backpacks with flexible and lightweight designs. Various useful features can be found across different pieces such as expandability, luggage passthrough sleeves, and a choice of organization pockets to make packing easier. Whether you’re looking for a bag for day-to-day use, short trips, or longer journeys, this collection can cater to your needs with Swiss functionality and precision.
Tough on the trails with packing flexibility
When you’re hitting the hills hard, you need a pack that won’t falter. The Mystery Ranch Frazier is built tough for hiking and mountain adventures, but still light enough not to weigh you down on the move. The 19L daypack features a front exterior pocket to secure bulky loads, along with tool attachment points. A zippered lid pocket, waist belt pockets, and side water bottle pockets keep smaller items organized and accessible. The pack is also hydration bladder compatible, so you don’t need to break stride to stay hydrated.
