Small in size, big on securing your essentials
Whether it’s frequently-used EDC or emergency supplies, keeping your gear dry, secure and easily accessible is important. The Thyrm Cell Vault provides waterproof and conveniently accessible storage for a variety of items such as three CR123 batteries, four AAA batteries, two AA batteries, small EDC items, first aid supplies or survival equipment.

Saddle up for the commute
booq know how to find a happy balance between work-friendly features and pared-down designs that look smart in the office and on the go. Building on the benefits of the Boa saddle, booq has created the Saddle in carbon which provides the same level of practicality but with updated materials to reduce the weight (and help you save some moolah too). The Saddle fits up to a 15″ laptop, with plenty of interior organization for your work tools. It includes a luggage pass-through and quick-access exterior pockets, and comes with a Terralinq serial number to help reunite you with your bag if it goes missing.
A travel duffel revving up Kickstarter
Inspired by sports cars, the KP Duffle streaks ahead of many other duffles with its sleek aesthetics. But it doesn’t forget practical features to complement its looks. A host of internal and quick-access exterior pockets keep items organized, the light-colored interior enhances visibility of the contents, and a ventilated pocket takes care of your shoes. The bag is available in a choice of colorways via the KP Duffle Kickstarter campaign.
