Week In Review ~ 30 November
Wish you could easily carry two-wheeled transport that won’t weigh you down? Perhaps a revamp of your luggage collection is in order with the holiday season approaching? How about a piece of kit that ensures the bar is always open wherever you find yourself, or maybe a dash of elegant functionality for overnight trips or everyday use? We’re delving into all of this carry goodness and more in our Week In Review…
QWSTION embraces leather
Keen to snap up some limited edition sleek Swiss style? Enter QWSTION’s Black Leather Special Edition Overnighter and Shopper, each produced in 50 pieces only. The Overnighter and Shopper feature vegetable-tanned leather, organic cotton canvas, YKK EXCELLA® zippers, pockets and a choice of carrying options to suit different needs. Plus their understated style means they’ll look good whether you’re lounging at your local cafe or catching a flight for that last-minute weekend getaway.
Love the thought of some luscious leather hugging your back as you venture into the unknown? Well Whipping Post have a tempting new release on the horizon that’s likely to get you itching for adventure. While you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for their handsome leather backpack making an appearance on Whipping Post’s site, in the meantime you can see it in action here.
French chic for fashionable travel
Whether you’re on the go for business or pleasure, a stylishly functional piece of carry helps to make the journey smoother and the latest collection from DELSEY has plenty of such pieces to choose from. The STARCKTRIP collection is a collaboration between DELSEY and renowned French designer Philippe Starck, featuring stain-resistant and water-repellent pieces that range from totes and duffles, to a pouch, backpack, trolley cases and document holders.
Pack the bike wherever you go
A bike that can get you to work, a friend’s place, campus or your local grocery shop…not a problem. How about a bike that can do all this while being compact enough to fit in a backpack? Now that certainly is a problem. However, Impossible Technology has risen to the challenge with their Impossible folding electric bike. The bike can carry a maximum recommended weight of 85 kilograms, with an estimated charging time of around 1.5 hours. The Impossible Kickstarter campaign has already surpassed its funding goal but there’s time left to put your name down for an Impossible bike in the carbon fiber colorway if you’ve taken a fancy to its flexibility.
Trip-ready tipple carry
Need some holiday gift inspiration for the person who has everything or is tricky to buy for? Maybe you just like the thought of never being more than an arm’s reach away from your favorite cocktail wherever you might find yourself. Then raise a glass in salute to the Stephen Kenn x Gin & Luck Travel Cocktail Kit, a compact means of carrying your cocktail supplies. The kit is constructed out of leather, canvas, and elastic webbing and comes with a mixing spoon, nine empty bottles and a book containing packing instructions and cocktail recipes.
