Week In Review ~ 14 August
Wallets that look smart in the office and can take on the outdoors, backpacks designed to keep opportunistic thieves at bay, and luggage that’s smooth in style and maneuverability. Discover more in our Week In Review…
Taking all the elements in your stride
Outerwear for your carry essentials? That’s the driving design focus behind the Bellroy All-Conditions collection. The range features the All-Conditions Wallet, All-Conditions Phone Pocket, and All-Conditions Essentials Pocket which fits a passport and phone. The collection’s new water-resistant leather teams up with a YKK AquaGuard Vislon zipper to protect daily EDC from the elements. And if you’re looking for protection with a little less weight, the range also comes in a water-resistant woven fabric option. Classy aesthetics, durable construction and versatile internal organization lets the All-Conditions range easily adapt to work or play environments without skipping a beat.
Thief-thwarting backpacks for everyday and travel needs
On the go during a busy commute, focusing on completing a specific task, or standing in crowded spaces…you can’t keep an eye on your backpack all the time. RiutBags were designed so you don’t have to. The backpacks have no exterior zips apart from the ones against your back, making it hard for opportunistic thieves to access your gear. Now the bags include more user-friendly features with updated models of the RiutBag R10 and RiutBag R15. New features include a D-pocket for storing items such as a phone, keys, tickets and passport, as well as a suitcase trolley strap. The top pocket is wider for better access and storage, and the laptop and tablet compartments have been redesigned and are constructed from Lycra to offer protection to devices without covers. The backpacks also come with detachable sternum straps and colored and reflective RiutBands which provide increased visibility at night and allow users to personalize their bag for easy identification. The RiutBags can be pre-ordered now and ship in September.
Topo embraces the streets
While Topo Designs’ bags are tough enough for the trails, they’re also versatile enough for the streets, and now they’re getting the style to match. Topo have teamed up with The Hundreds to create the limited The Hundreds X Topo Designs collection. Featuring The Hundreds’ custom Digi Camo print, the collaboration brings streetwear style to the Topo Designs Daypack, Cinch Tote, and Travel Bag. Each bag is made from hard-wearing 1000D Cordura and includes pockets for organizing your daily essentials or travel gear.
Just the ticket for first-class style and lightweight durability
Some bags come out looking a little worse for wear after traveling. But with the new ZRO Collection from ZERO HALLIBURTON you get effortless style and durability all in one sleek package. The collection, which is made in America using imported materials, is constructed with Makrolon. This tough and lightweight polycarbonate is resistant to shocks, scratches and scuffs – ideal properties for demanding travel environments. The collection includes a 20″ Carry-On Spinner, a 22″ Carry-On Spinner, a 25″ Spinner, and a 28″ Spinner, each of which is available in attractive Gold, Gunmetal, and Silver colorways. The spinners feature structural ribs for increased strength, a protective lock cover for the combination lock and zipper pulls, as well as versatile interior organization.
