Daily carry tasks dispatched in style
DSPTCH and 3sixteen have teamed up to put the dapper in your daily carry with their new collaboration. The DSPTCH x 3sixteen 2016 Capsule Collection is a follow-up to last year’s capsule, this time with expanded styles in attractive Black and Olive colorways. The capsule collection includes the Bookpack, Daypack, Dopp Kit and Utility Tote. Featuring a stylish combination of waxed canvas and leather detailing, the collection is crafted in the USA and built tough to withstand daily use.
Putting forward the case for thoughtful shoe carry
Shoes can be some of the trickiest items to pack in your luggage. But that’s not the case with The Shrine Sneaker Wheeled Case. The carry-on case provides two dedicated compartments for sneakers or boots, as well as storage for clothes, tech and other travel items. The case also comes in two options. The Black and Gold colorway is made using a water-repellent Black Heathered Diamond fabric, while the Navy Pixel Camo colorway features water-repellent Tan 600D Nylon and Navy Pixel Camo 600D Polyester fabrics. The case can be pre-ordered now at a 25% discount, with shipping in late November – just in time for your holiday travels.
A multitool that will hook EDC enthusiasts
A lot of multitools can end up scratching your pocket or bag contents. But the Tactica Talon is designed to avoid this issue with its lightweight and durable composite construction. Small enough to carry daily without weighing you down, the Talon features 17 tools such as a box cutter, hex socket that accepts swappable hex tools, a bottle opener, and metric and imperial wrenches and rulers. The Talon holds any standard 1/4″ hex drive and includes storage space for two hex drives. Conveniently the position of the hex socket allows the tool to be used similarly to a screwdriver for improved user comfort. The Talon is also TSA compliant, so it can go wherever you do.

Refined protection for your MacBook
For their 5th anniversary Mujjo are celebrating in fitting style with the release of the Wooden Case for MacBook. They’ve partnered with industrial designer Athanasios Babalis to create a limited run of 50 pieces, with 10 representing each year of Mujjo. The case is crafted by hand in Greece using reclaimed American Walnut veneer, and features a stainless steel door panel. To complement the eye-catching exterior, the vegetable-tanned leather interior is combined with foam padding to provide elegant protection for your tech.
Heirloom quality built to last a lifetime
Stock & Barrel was created with a simple and admirable goal, to handcraft leather goods you’d be proud to use anywhere. Inspired by and designed to revive old American craftsmanship, their goods are built to last a lifetime and age beautifully with use. Just like their new line of wallets, crafted by hand using premium vegetable-tanned leather from Wickett & Craig, one of the top US tanneries. The line includes the Card Holder, Notebook Wallet, Bill Fold Wallet and Vertical Wallet, allowing you to alternate between minimalist and more involved carry setups to suit your needs.
