Week In Review ~ 8 June
Looking for a camera bag that doesn’t shout ‘I have pricey photography equipment!’ to opportunistic thieves? Do lightweight carry aids that can be used daily for securing, attaching and hanging a variety of items sound good? Well come and find out more in our Week In Review…
Compact carry helpers
The Tyny Tools collection was designed as a solution to combat various bike commute problems but each piece in the collection lends itself to use outside of biking. The collection incorporates Key Clips, Swivel Clips and Lock Bands, all of which can be utilised for a variety of purposes such as securing keys to your person, attaching exterior items to your carry or bike, organizing your EDC, hanging up items and a multitude of other uses. The collection is a side project created by one of the Boreas Product Developers and Boreas have had a hand in testing the Key Clips over the last year. If you’re keen to get your hands on these carry tools check out the collection’s Kickstarter campaign.
New catches from Teddyfish
If you’ve been angling for some chic new carry you may want to hook one of the new releases from Teddyfish. The collection is stylishly understated in design, each piece constructed using cotton canvas and waxed vegetable-tanned leather from Wickett & Craig. The bags are suitable for work and leisure use and include a carry-all, tote, small pouch, large pouch, two briefcases and a weekender, with a choice of colorways to select from.
A collaboration photographers will be keen to snap up
For photographers who haven’t checked out what the folks at Filson have been up to recently, there’s plenty of new carry to snap up courtesy of Filson’s collaboration with Magnum photographers David Alan Harvey and Steve McCurry. The collaboration has resulted in camera bags that are designed to be tough, protective and functional without looking like camera bags in order to avoid drawing attention to their potentially expensive contents. The water-resistant bags come with removable padded interior dividers and a variety of pockets for organization and are available now from Filson.
Wallet minimalism from Friday & River
Been searching high and low for a wallet but not found one that’s just right yet? Well you may want to expand your horizons with the Earth & Sky McGraw Wallet from Friday & River. Each wallet is dyed and stitched by hand and constructed from one piece of vegetable-tanned leather. There are two slots within the billfold which each accommodate up to three cards and the wallet will also hold a variety of bill sizes, making it a handy traveling companion.
Archival’s daypack toughens up
Archival Clothing have updated their Archival Day Pack which is now constructed out of a water-resistant 18 oz cotton duck with Horween Chromexcel leather detailing and YKK zippers. Compact and designed for carrying lighter loads in urban environments or laidback day trips into the outdoors, the pack comes in a choice of Navy, Black and Natural colorways and incorporates two exterior side pockets and one internal slip pocket.
