- Buyer's Guide
Week In Review ~ 21 September
Welcome to the Week In Review where we’re checking out some interesting new releases, a handy guide if you’re undecided over purchasing a duffel, as well as a hard wallet for those who like to play hard…
New luggage takes off for Crumpler
Crumpler have had their collective noses to the grindstone creating a new line of luggage called the Low Level Aviator line. A diverse range of travel carry needs are catered for with pieces including wheeled cabin and check-in luggage, a 60-liter backpack, an 8-liter daypack, a dopp kit, travel wallet and waist bag. There’s a choice of two colorways, with the Sand Straw option particularly visible for grabbing your gear off airport carousels.
KILLSPENCER does daypack design
Keeping things understated for travels closer to home, KILLSPENCER’s Daypack comes in leather and suede or waxed canvas and suede combinations and caters to your day-to-day carry needs with interior organization pockets for the likes of pens, business cards and notebooks. There is also a waterproof zippered pouch that will hold an iPad Mini.
If you’re daft for duffels then Gear Patrol’s list of duffels to suit all budgets is likely to get you drooling. The list of 30 pieces range from below $100 to reaching close to the $2000 mark so if you’re in the market for a duffel it’s a good list to check out for ideas. You can also compare it with our Buyer’s Guide for duffels (you’ll note some of the brands feature on both lists) for some additional inspiration.
Everlane enters new territory
We’ve touched on Everlane before but they have just stepped into the world of wallets with a new collection. The leather Card Case and Fold-Over wallet are unisex while the Slim Zip wallet is aimed at women. While each option carries bills and cards, only the Slim Zip caters to coin carrying but the style is unisex enough for men to use as well if a few coins need to be kept handy.
Tough protection for tough travels
If you need to protect your finances from taking a beating (physically and metaphorically), the reasonably priced and rather hardcore Pelican ProGear™ 0955 Sport Wallet Case is willing to take the hit instead. Designed as a crushproof and water-resistant means of carrying bills and cards as well as small items like keys, this wallet may be just the sort of thing you’re seeking for your next outdoor adventure.
