Week In Review ~ 29 January
Leather for your laptop, classy ways to carry camera gear, and getting more out of your EDC. Welcome to our Week In Review…
A new icon is born
Incase have introduced a sleek, compact addition to their popular ICON series with the ICON Lite. The backpack features a single main compartment well suited for storing documents, folders and the like, with a faux-fur lined laptop sleeve that fits up to a 15″ laptop. Quick-access pockets keep smaller items within easy reach, and the slim and pared-back silhouette looks equally good on campus, in the office or about town.
Arcing between work, travel and everyday
Looking for adaptability and urban-friendly style? The new Moshi Arcus backpack offers both with a versatile and stylish design that suits travel, EDC and even camera carry. Dedicated storage for tech and a variety of pockets provide organization for work tools, daily carry items and more. Plus a combination of top-loading and side access means you can reach gear conveniently and quickly throughout the pack. The backpack can also be paired with the Arcus Camera Insert (sold separately) to create a photography bag. Find more details on both pieces here.
A modern-day maverick
Like to do things a little differently and stand out from the crowd? So does the WaterField Designs Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger with its mix of old-school charm and modern-day functionality. Bringing rugged durability and a touch of luxury to your daily carry, the Maverick is crafted in San Francisco from full-grain leather in a choice of colorways that will develop a unique patina with use. Available in full and compact sizes, the eye-catching bag features dedicated pockets for a laptop and tablet, along with a slip pocket and zipped pocket for storing smaller items.
ONA puts new releases in the picture
If you’re looking for understated style and versatility in your camera carry, you’ll want to zoom in on ONA’s upcoming releases. Suitable for work and play environments, the three new styles include the compact Bond Street which is designed for mirrorless or instant cameras and comes in full-grain leather and waxed canvas options. The Kyoto Wrist Strap keeps your camera secure and at the ready and is made with full-grain leather and a suede lining. The Beacon Lens Case can hold up to four lenses and small accessories, comes with customizable padded dividers, and is crafted from 1050D ballistic nylon and full-grain leather accents. The Bond Street and Kyoto Wrist Strap launch on 31st January, while the Beacon Lens Case is available from 7th February.
Money meets multi-tool
You probably carry a wallet almost every day. So why not make it work a little bit harder for you? The Dango Tactical Wallet + Multi-tool combines two EDC items into one, offering the benefits of a wallet with an inbuilt multi-tool. The wallet holds cash and up to 12 cards, while the multi-tool provides 14 functions to tackle a range of day-to-day and DIY needs. The wallet is crafted from a durable combination of 6061 aerospace-grade anodized aluminum and top-grain leather. And if you fancy the look of the wallet but don’t want the multi-tool, the Dango Dapper Wallet fits the bill.
