2014 marks 100 years in the footwear game for Brooks. To celebrate, they created the Heritage Collection: new versions of their classic Vanguard & Vantage runners in a whole slew of new colors.
The design of this roll-top pack from Betabrand makes it easy to convert from a 3-layered shelf pocket set-up to its full 42-liter capacity or something in between. Just unhook the shelf pockets and fill ‘er up.
You may not know it but your phone is filthy. Because it’s warm and you put it down everyywhere, it’s covered with bacteria and germs. If this thought disturbs you, try PhoneSoap. It’s a smartphone sanitizer that uses UV light to clean all the creepy-crawlies off your device in just 4 minutes.
The Calypso Tag is an Italian leather luggage tag that connects to your smartphone so your luggage will never get lost. Linked with the app, it monitors your bag’s location, and even lets you know when it’s coming out on the conveyor.
Until now, it was a commonly held belief that backpacker’s cologne was just an acrid mix of woodsmoke, canned chili, and bourbon. Looks like the world was wrong. Backpacker’s Cologne is actually a unisex fragrance inspired by winter days spent foraging for wild mushrooms and exploring the secret Redwood canyons of Mt. Tamalpais. In other words: Redwood needles, Douglas Fir pitch, sea grass, etc.
Breaking Bad had to end. Luckily, you now have HBO’s True Detective. But before every loser on earth starts claiming superfan, you need to own this one. Buy a 24” X 36” graphic print & hang it on your wall or mail out a set of TD postcards and let fools know (before these latest designs by Nigel Dennis sell out).
New Era makes baseball hats. Their new Heritage Series 1934 Collection is just what it sounds like: a collection of hats modeled after styles used by MLB teams back in the 30s. They feature classic logos, period-correct construction, and come packed in a big red box, just as they would have arrived to the pros of the period. Look for additional team releases through 2014.
This compact, American-made 20-liter gym bag is on the smaller side—perfect for workout gear or a few daytrip supplies—but because it’s made of double-layered 1000D Cordura, you could literally use it to haul bricks.
