Week In Review ~ 26 January
Whether you’re enjoying a lazy weekend or a long day of work, you deserve some carry indulgence time – and it’s all here in the Week In Review. Ninja tourist carry, uncluttered camera hauling and a sneak peek at Filson’s new offerings…just some of the things to keep your carry cravings satisfied.
From key chaos to key calm
On the hunt to keep your keys in check? The OKii may be just what you’re looking for to corral them, a key organizer that comes with an optional leather strap and a variety of optional tool accessories to accommodate different EDC needs, from slicing open packages to opening bottles and taking care of lose screws. The OKii currently has a Kickstarter campaign running where you can find out more details.
How to be a tourist without looking like a tourist
Nothing screams ‘Tourist!’ louder than a fanny pack and this can lead to some unwanted attention on your travels if you’re not careful. Stealthier than a fanny pack and a minimalist means of keeping your small valuables away from prying eyes, the Husky Minor waist bag is compact enough to be hidden under your shirt with no one the wiser. The lightweight waist bag has two separate pockets and a total volume of 0.5 liters, which is just enough to keep cash, cards, IDs and the like safe on your person.
Filson is cooking up some tasty new treats
Filson fans should keep their eyes peeled. Why is that, you ask? Well Filson have been keeping busy with two new collections, one of which gives some of their designs a make-over with tougher-than-tough canvas so your hardwearing Filson carry will last even longer, while the second collection is a collaboration with Magnum Photos to produce a range of smart and durable camera bags.
Streamlined camera carry
If you’re in the market for camera carry of a slightly different nature, this sleek Booq Python slimpack is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, a slim backpack for folks who don’t need to haul an entire film crew’s worth of gear around. The pack will hold one to two DSLRs, a large zoom lens and four medium-sized lenses, in addition to a separate space for a 10-inch tablet, pockets for small accessories and exterior tripod carrying capabilities.
Have your say and honor those who are worthy
Have you heard the news? If you haven’t, where have you been?? The second annual Carry Awards are now running, woop! Seriously folks, this is something to get excited about, your chance to honor the brands and designers who don’t make average or inferior junk but instead create carry that’s worthy of being highlighted and remembered for years to come because it’s just that awesome. So if you haven’t done so yet, make your mark and get voting here.
