Best Accessory Results – The Fifth Annual Carry Awards
It was a strong year for Outlier and their tech-carry range – with a Highly Commended in Best Carry-On – and now Best Accessory! Long stays to overnight trips. Urban hotels to wilderness camping. This Dyneema-clad dopp can roll with the changes and adapt to a range of environments and carry needs.
Lightweight and durable, the rolltop design can handle a variety of loads, so you can keep things tight on shorter trips or pack in a little extra for longer journeys. The Rolltop Dopp also offers a wide opening, making it simple to pack and unpack items, plus a handy side zip lets you access the interior without having to unroll the top.
In addition, the Outlier Rolltop Dopp can either be hung up or laid on its base, allowing you to keep the contents within easy reach wherever you find yourself. This is a versatile and luxe travel companion that’s designed to keep up wherever the journey leads. Congratulations, Outlier!
These are the pieces that just missed out, and in most cases, by the smallest of margins. To them, we award a High Commendation. The below were of outstanding quality, displaying fine craftsmanship and design flair. With honor, we bow our heads in the utmost respect and kudos. If this were a dais, they’d be biting their teeth into silver medals, while their flags were hoisted into the horizon – a feat not to be overlooked. And we’re sure they’ll be back, to take it one notch higher, next year.

The limited edition Bellroy x MAAP All-Conditions Phone Pocket features a slim and durable design that slips conveniently into a cycling jersey pocket. Durable construction with water-resistant leather and a YKK AquaGuard Zip ensures the contents are protected against the elements, sweat and grit. There’s also interior organization for keeping items such as keys, bills, and coins tidy, plus a microfiber lining for scratch-free phone storage.
And hey, its low-key style sure beats a plastic ziplock bag when you’re stopping for a mid-ride cafe break. Well done, Bellroy and MAAP!
