Built for everyday adventures
Trakke have welcomed two new handcrafted additions to their carry family designed to help you seek out everyday adventures.

The waxed cotton bag offers two carry options including top handles and a removable shoulder strap, along with front and rear pockets for handy organization. The 20L Lecht Backpack moves easily between the commute and outdoor explorations and features a tapered weatherproof design crafted with waxed cotton canvas and a water-resistant zip.

When truck tarps take flight on new journeys
Truck tarps often have plenty more to give when they’ve finished life on the road, so FREITAG swoops in to give them a new purpose as tough and functional carry items. Just like the durable, practical and eye-catching R124 BIRD Bucket Bag which can be carried by hand or as a shoulder bag. The bag is available in 30 unique pieces and features a quick-access exterior pocket, key loop, and inner compartments to keep items tidy on the fly.
Power that flows wherever you need it
EcoFlow founder Eli Harris had a thirst for adventure from an early age. After completing university in the States, he went to study in China and became fluent in Mandarin, eventually landing a job at DJI, leader in the drone industry. Based in Shenzhen, the hardware capital of the world, Eli met experts in the battery world. The result is EcoFlow and their first product, RIVER, an advanced portable power system. Utilizing advanced lithium ion cells, the RIVER boasts an impressive 428Wh capacity, both AC and DC output, and 11 ports (including USB-C, Quick Charge, DC and AC power). RIVER can charge your phone over 30 times, a laptop 6 times, or even a small fridge for the ultimate tailgate. It can be re-charged via solar, car, or wall charger and holds its power for one year, making it a great home backup system. It fits in a small footprint of less than 10″ x 7″ and weighs 11 pounds. From all-day photoshoots to camping with friends over the weekend, RIVER can eliminate the dreaded no-power-source stress. If you’re interested, the exclusive pricing is $499 over at Indiegogo.
