Week In Review ~ 17 August
Fancy some new releases from DSPTCH? How about scoping out stealthy sleekness on the horizon for Bedouin Foundry? Perhaps a little bit of limited edition carry goodness for your collection? If you’re keen to find out more you can do so right here…
Truce Designs drops a high-visibility limited edition pack
If you like a touch of exclusivity to your carry, you’ll certainly get it with the Truce Designs Air Rescue Series Drop Liner Backpack. This limited edition pack is constructed with fabric utilised for Air Rescue drysuits for the United States Coast Guard. The interior liner keeps the pack’s contents dry while also accommodating a hydration bladder between the liner and the exterior layer of the pack. Other handy features include a choice of interior and exterior pockets, a buckle that also functions as a whistle, as well as removable compression straps that can be used to compress the bag and carry bulky items on the pack’s exterior.
KILLSPENCER goes public with a limited edition collaboration
If you prefer your limited edition gear a little more understated, the collaboration between KILLSPENCER and Public School NY fits the bill. The result of the collaboration is two limited edition bags – a Weekender and Special Ops Backpack. The bags feature pressed Italian matte leather and bullhide leather, along with waterproof and fire-retardant black nylon and waterproof Riri zippers.
Technical toughness from Bedouin Foundry
Bedouin Foundry are known for their beautiful and durable bags, so what could they do to up their game with new designs? Rather than shying away from the challenge, they’ve embraced it head-on with their upcoming Technical Collection. Featuring the Mizzen, Barque, Dreadnought, Holdfast Duffel and Intrepid washbag, these pieces are as tough as they sound. Incorporating AustriAlpin Cobra GT polymer buckles, heavy-duty ballistic nylon and military-grade webbing in their construction, the pieces in the collection will be ready in September to set sail into adventure wherever the wind may take them.
DSPTCH sends new carry out into the world
Do you dig DSPTCH but wish they had a greater selection of colorways? Well that wish has been answered. Departing from their customary black, DSPTCH has released a new line of Grey and Navy Ballistic Nylon bags for Fall/Winter 2014. The collection includes five of DSPTCH’s designs, namely the Slingpack, Weekender, Daypack, Briefcase and Ruckpack which are constructed using weather-resistant 1680D Ballistic Nylon and military-spec hardware for reliable EDC use.
Stitchless construction meets centuries-old Japanese tradition
If you enjoy stitch-free leather wallets then the Shosa Origami leather card wallet is one to check out. The card wallet is made out of Japanese vegetable-tanned steer leather and features stitchless construction inspired by the Japanese tradition of origata (paper folding) and fukusa (cloth used in tea ceremonies and for covering gifts). Constructed with a nut and bolt to hold it together, the wallet is made in Japan and comes in a variety of colorways, with two card slots which accommodate business cards and credit cards.
