Adaptable daily carry for the city and beyond
Understated style meets easy access and flexible design with the CYCOP DaySling. Rather than a bag you’re aware of all the time, this multifunctional sling bag is designed to remain unobtrusively in the background, reliable and ready when you need it and non-distracting when you don’t. The bag has a number of useful features that make it suitable for urban or outdoor use, such as quick-access exterior pockets, internal organization, quiet closures, and weatherproof construction. An expandable volume from 6L to 13L lets the bag adapt to different loads, while the sling design provides convenient access to gear without needing to remove the bag. Learn more through the CYCOP DaySling Kickstarter campaign.
Celebrating simplicity and adventurous spirits
The Maverick collection from Millican embraces taking the path less traveled, finding out what’s round the next bend, and adapting to different environments. Now three new styles join the lineup to help you carry your essentials wherever the day takes you. Smaller versions of some of Millican’s bestsellers, these bags can traverse the work/play divide, hopping from one setting to the next so your carry journey always stays on track. New additions include the Smith the Roll Pack 15L, a compact daypack for the commute or wilderness ramblings. The Fraser the Rucksack 25L fits a 15″ laptop and comes with a removable waist belt and sternum straps, as well as a fold-away reflective strip. The Miles the Duffle Bag 28L can be carried as a backpack or duffle, making this a flexible option for travel or everyday use. Each bag offers weatherproof construction and a choice of colorways to complement your personal style.
Winter blues that will float your boat
For their new Fall/Winter 2016 releases Lexdray takes colorway inspiration from their appreciation of all things maritime – and the collection certainly looks shipshape. Expanding their Symmetry Collection, Lexdray brings a navy blue custom ripstop nylon to five pieces. The material is water resistant and combined with durable mesh which creates a stylish diamond-shaped pattern. The collection includes bestsellers the Tokyo Pack and Vienna Pack, as well as three new pieces including the Amsterdam Brief, the Mumbai Messenger and the Rome Pack. See the full collection here.
Professional protection for precious camera cargo
Traveling with valuable camera equipment can be a turbulent experience. That’s why Manfrotto created the Pro Light Reloader-55 Roller Bag. This international carry-on size bag securely stores camera gear when you’re on the go, and features a shock-absorbent and water-repellent construction as well as an included raincover for further protection. While solid construction keeps gear safe and sound, thoughtful organization ensures it also stays tidy and easily accessible. The bag’s modular dividers can be configured to suit a range of gear setups, while a choice of pockets keep smaller items neat and within easy reach. The roller bag includes space for a laptop and tablet, and boosts functionality with external tripod carry capability.
A carry collab that will have anglers hooked
The Topo Designs Mountain Pack is carefully crafted by hand and more than up for a day of outdoor adventure. Sharing that same dedication to durable, crafted quality and an enjoyment of the outdoors is the Swift Fly Fishing Company, who meticulously craft each of their Epic fly rods by hand. Combine the two together and you’ve got a collaboration that’s frankly pretty darn epic. The new Topo Designs x Epic Fly Rod collaboration includes Topo’s Mountain Pack and the customized Epic Packlight 476 FastGlass fly rod that fits in the pack’s side pockets. Available in a limited run, this collaboration makes it easy to cast your cares aside and carry everything you need for a fun day of fishing.
