20140306-155538.jpg

When you’re traveling — whether it be in the wilderness or the far more dangerous airport concourse — it’s nice to have several ways to get to your stuff. The Filson Duffle Backpack gives you exactly that. Built from rugged Cordura nylon for resistance to both water and abrasions, this versatile bag offers a drawstring top and a zippered front to give you ways to get to the main compartment, an integrated rain cover to keep things dry, dependable RIRI zippers, and removable shoulder straps that let you transition from backpack to regular bag.

Maison Martin Margiela x Globe-Trotter 30″ Travel Suitcase

maison-martin-margiela-x-globe-trotter-00One of Britain’s best when it comes to luggage, Globe-Trotter, comes together with Maison Martin Margiela to create a unique, special edition 30″ Travel Suitcase. Coming with an already weathered and worn look fitting of a piece that has seen more miles than even Tom Stuker (look this man up!), the suitcase features a light grey leather exterior with abrasions and black skuff marks. Looking in quite pristine shape, however, are the tan leather straps, handles, and corners, which not only stand out from their quality, but for their contrast against the distressed aesthetic. Look for this case to hit MMM stores beginning this March.

I do a lot of traveling with my work and the biggest drag is the amount of time I spend in airports and all the shit that goes with it, including passport out passport back away boarding pass out boarding pass away (repeat this task unnecessary about 5-6 times per flight) so I’m always seeking out small solutions to make this experience more bearable. When Bellroy sent some samples to my office the first thing I picked up was the Passport Sleeve. This minimalist travel companion classily holds your most important documents in a case of premium leather and includes a handy pen along with storage for your passport, as well as multiple cards, tickets and boarding passes, but its forte is its size perfect to fit in a back or jacket pocket which makes it accessible with the greatest of ease.

20121017-070203.jpg

In my opinion Lexdray is second to none… I spent a very long time searching for the best backpack to service my needs and the huge amount of traveling I do, and with the launch of their new 2012 winter collection its time to add to my luggage. Featuring a brand new lineup of bags and accessories. The new collection features the London Garment bag, a redesigned Boulder Pack, the Sao Paulo Sling bag, the Oxford Suiter bag and the Monte Carlo wallet. The London Garment bag is a traveling wardrobe designed to carry suits, dress shoes and all the other necessities for dressing well on the road. A drop-down design means it can be hung on a door for easy access to all the contents within. The redesigned Boulder Pack breaks rank with the rest of the range with a tan colourway and features a host of pockets and storage options for carrying the daily essentials. The Sao Paulo Sling is designed as a small daily carryall and can be easily worn slung over one shoulder. The Oxford Suiter is a light garment bag designed to accommodate two suits with space for cuff-links clips and ties. Rounding out the collection is the Monte Carlo wallet, a slim wallet with multiple slots to accommodate cards and currency and an elastic band to keep the wallet compact. All the new pieces feature Lexdray’s attention to detail and top-notch construction.

20120716-185634.jpg

We have seen The North Face Back to Berkeley series dominated by boots in the past; however, they are extending the line to include backpacks. In a similar fashion that the footwear pays respect to the homage of the outdoor brand, these backpacks are a reincarnation of their classic backpack design. Hidden inside the minimal silhouette is the drawstring compartment on the interior. The exterior is made from canvas material, which has been coated to offer water resistance and durability. Thick suede leather makes up the bottom of the bag and zipper pulls. Three colorways are currently in available at oki-ni online shop for pre-order with the delivery taking place in October.
