Sorting the small things in style
Whether it’s a night out on the town, the daily commute or catching a plane or train, taking care of the small things is important. With HOOK & ALBERT‘s sleek leather Bi-Fold and Card Holder Wallet you can keep cards, cash and ID organized while looking suave on the go. The Essential Traveler on the other hand provides convenient one-stop storage for the items you want easy access to during your travels such as tickets, a passport, tech devices, cables and a pen. The pieces are available from the 8th of March.
Mission Workshop gets a move on with fresh releases
Mission Workshop are well known for bags that slot easily into life on the go. With their new Transit Series, you get two bags designed for adventure on foot and two wheels. The Transit 19L Laptop Shoulder Bag handles your EDC needs with ease, featuring a padded sleeve for a laptop and multiple interior and exterior pockets for organizing your gear. The Transit 31L Duffle Shoulder Bag also offers padded laptop storage and a range of pockets and is suitable for day-to-day and travel use. Both bags feature weatherproof construction with an HT500 fabric exterior, urethane-coated nylon ripstop liner and YKK AquaGuard zippers. There’s also flexible portability with a quick-adjust shoulder strap, grab handles, plus snap straps for attaching the bags to a front bike rack.
QWSTION springs new colorway
With Spring and lighter days just round the corner, QWSTION are embracing the season in suitable carry style. “Organic light grey” is a chic new Spring/Summer ’16 colorway available across the Simple Office, Simple Ziptote, Simple Pack and Simple Bag. Understated and versatile in design, each bag is constructed using certified organic cotton canvas and can be carried in a range of handy ways for work, travel and leisure use.
First-class carry for globetrotting
A jet-set lifestyle calls for a bag that will turn heads. Moreca Atelier designed their Aviator MG to be such a bag. Handcrafted by a team of 5 to 7 craftsmen over 50 hours, each piece features full-grain Italian calf leather with painted edges, 316L stainless steel hardware, and quilting designed to replicate the shape of aircraft armchairs. The backpack includes easy-access and interior pockets for organization and is available in Marygold Orange, Iceberg White, Champagne Beige and Matt Black colorways.
Tactical functionality, discreet design
Stealth is not always the case with tactical bags – overt military-inspired aesthetics can make a lot of them stand out. But not the ITS Discreet Messenger Bag, which lives up to its name with a design that flies under the radar. The messenger is constructed using Martexin weather-resistant waxed canvas and rugged AustriAlpin COBRA buckles, with a pass-through zipper for quick access to the interior. The Velcro-lined interior lets you attach items according to your personal preferences, while expandable interior and side SnapPockets™ keep small items tidy and provide space for a water bottle. The bag includes a carry handle, adjustable shoulder strap, as well as a removable waist strap to stabilize the load on the go.
