Have you mastered the art of traveling light? Once you’ve figured out how to split for the weekend with just one bag, you’ll need that one bag. Get a good one. This one is made of heavy canvas with leather trim. The rugged, aviator style with a weathered finish also makes it look like you’ve flown a few missions.
Looks tough. It’s made of ballistic nylon with a rubberized bottom & leather details. The strap is made of comfortable seatbelt nylon. It’s pure function. It’s also low profile for when you’re not feeling brave enough to tote it manpurse style. You can jam this little thing into a bigger bag and proceed freely. Or just hand it to your lady friend for a minute. Whatever works.
You carry both your toothbrush and your deodorant in the same bag. Your comb, nail clippers, maybe even a balding product you don’t want to talk about? For these magical items, you need a bag that’s durable, won’t leak and is easy to clean. Constructed from recycled rubber tire innertubes, Seattle’s Alchemy Goods makes all kinds of unique up-cycled bags & accessories—all green design that looks good and makes sense.
The wood-grain emboss on this Italian leather wallet is from real wood. They could’ve used cheap, faux woodgrain, but no. Hlaska founder, NorCal-based designer, Anthony Mazzei, would not stand for faux. He demanded real wood grain patterns and matched them to all three colors: ebony, cedar & pine.
Take the concept of the Swiss Army knife: a multitude of tools all packed into one handy, compact unit. Same principle here. Instead of tweezers, the Swiss RoomBox is a like a hotel room that fits in the trunk of your car. Depending on how you flip and unfold it, you’ve got a kitchen, bed, shower or dinner table all in one ridiculously small, modular package.
Drop the camera once and it’s done. The lightweight plastic and aluminum body is no match for pavement impact. But instead of getting hosed on the ridiculously over-priced extended warranty, look into Camera Armor. The protective skin works just like the case you have on your phone: absorbs shock, while giving you access to all the buttons, ports and controls you need.
Few brands can lay claim to a true classic legacy. As American as mom’s apple pie, Eddie Bauer and Airstream are exceptional brands that have stood the test of time with simple style. The two have now combined forces to create a special edition 25’ Airstream camper outfitted for sporty, rugged adventures from sea to shining sea.
You’ve likely seen a Rimowa aluminum suitcase rolling gracefully through a foreign airport pulled along behind a well-dressed businessman with impossibly pointy shoes. The German luggage maker has been refining this timeless, all-aluminum design since it was first offered in the 1950s. Rimowa cases are offered in a variety of sizes and will always compliment your attire; maybe even your shoes.
Does your dog think he’s human? That’s actually a deep philosophical question – even for a dog as smart as yours. So why not give your four-legged friend a place to ponder. A place like the plush interior of a Helmutt house, where he can really curl up & think about this and other canine conundrums, like how to carry a football in his mouth.
Just like Filson’s legendary wool hunting coats, their duffle bags are heavy, durable and feature timeless details. It’s all about function with a touch of class, like, brass zippers and full-grain bridle leather handles. This sturdy bag is perfectly suited for a weekend car trip or the first class cabin.
