LA-based Killspencer is a small brand using recycled materials to make new cool shit. This minimalist Weekender duffle is not the first product of theirs we featured and won’t likely be the last. Built from Korean war-era coated canvas and trimmed in black with water repellent zippers, snap pockets, and a bullhide handle, this thing looks ready for battle. Inside however, you’ll find a zippered sleeve for your laptop and plenty of room for your skin care products and vintage fashions.
Just about every product ever guaranteed to be waterproof actually sucks up water like a sponge. The DryZone 200 camera bag from LowePro however, has actually been given the dunk test. It wasn’t some lab-controlled spritzing either, adventure/humanitarian photographer Craig Pulsifer actually took this pack out for “backflips into the pool and an hour under the falls” in the Phillipines. Guess what? It’s watertight. Holds a pro SLR kit or your video gear plus more …
From the makers of Clif Bar comes another great idea. For years, Europeans have embraced (literally) wine in a bag and finally someone is doing it here in the states. Everyday table wine is fresh, it doesn’t need a cork or a cellar, but just needs to be drunk. Or is it drank? Drunken? Whatever, the idea here is that soft-sided packaging means you can take it anywhere (like the movies). It also means a lot less waste and a very reduced carbon footprint compared to wine in a bottle. Salúd!

Do you bring a toolbox with you on trips? No, you don’t. But, if you’ve got an ultra-slim, featherweight titanium multi-tool like this, you should be covered.

Nobody cares what you write in your journal. That means freedom. So write whatever you want, whenever you want. Write a song. Write a list. Write a confession. It will all be recorded for posterity between the vegetable-tanned leather covers of this 7.5 X 5-inch journal. Made in the U.S.A.
It’s so slim it almost looks like a Mac made of wood, but this handmade bamboo attaché is actually a protective case for your computer. To make these cases, raw bamboo is milled-out to perfectly fit your Mac laptop. The inside is lined with soft wool felt and the handle is made from a single piece of leather. The woodgrain comes to life with a hand-rubbed Tung oil finish. Renewable materials, hand-made construction, made in the U.S.A. Very smart.
