ISI Wheeled Luggage

Nice utilitarian look to this simple case, and it’s super light- which will be very handy when you’re lugging all your travel paraphernalia around.

“The ISI Wheeled stands out from the rest of the luggage available on the market: it’s among the lightest available, thanks to the trolley system with single aluminum tow bar, preformed bottom and nylon accessories and buckles. It also has added durability due to the tough fabric and felled stitching in all stress points.”

Amphib 15 by Boblbee

Maybe to you hard core skiiers/snowboarders/mountain climbers this backpack is nothing new, but I think it might be one of the coolest ones I’ve ever seen. Looks like it accommodates all sorts of gear/accessories to make your excursion that much more enjoyable…

“Extreme water protection and our rip stop laminated foam shell makes it an ideal companion for rough conditions whether it be rain, snow, or sea water.
The ergonomics are excellent regardless if it is empty or heavily packed thanks to the body molded shell. Shoulder straps are made of top quality neoprene to follow the movements of your arms. It features a water tight roll top, a goggle pocket inside the lid, pole/ice axe attachments, quick lock straps for skis and boards, and a built in shovel guard.”

Sac à faire

We saw these at ICFF at the Pure Austrian Design booth last year and it looks like they finally hit the market. It’s basically a large pattern made of Tyvek (the super strong material used in FedEx packaging) which allows you to cut out a pattern (with 10 to choose from on the same sheet) and make your own bag.

“Detailed instructions allow the user to turn one of them from a 2D graphic into a 3D accessoire. All you need is a pair of scissors, a sewing-machine and a sheet of Sac à faire.

It’s a product, which involves the user in the process of production, allows him/her to build up a relationship to the object and to be proud of the result.”

Furoshiki Bag

This would be quite a handy bag to have around; three different shapes are possible for all sorts of things…

“The simplicity of the Furoshiki Bag is pure genius. Thanks to its origami-like folds, three different-shaped bags can be arranged, each one held securely together by magnetic handles. Incredible versatile, it is fully reversable so that you can even adapt the color to your mood!”

Onme Belt

For those days when you need your cell phone, keys and wallet but don’t feel like carrying a purse, the onme bag is a perfect companion. I have one of these and I can’t tell you how many people stop me to ask where I got it or just to say “cool belt”.

These were being carried in Fred Segal for a while but the designer has them made by hand and couldn’t keep up with orders, so I’m thrilled to see them available again.

It’s made in downtown LA of sweatshop free labor from a super soft leather.

Happiness Wallet

Yesterday I was walking home after a run and a innocuous looking pre-teen girl holding a camera came up to me, followed by her father by a watchful 10 paces. She was working on a school project and wanted to know if I could help her. So she points the camera at me and handed me the mic and then fired away.

“What makes you happy?” she asked. After stammering and thinking for probably 20 seconds (which is a long time when you think about it) I rambled about how being with friends and family makes me happy.

What a sweet, innocent little school project to make adults question their whole existence.

Anyway, this wallet, although it has a jaded view on happiness, reminded me of that little moment. It may just make you think of what makes you happy the next time you take out your credit card.

Dosh Wallet

For anyone that’s dropped their wallet in a puddle or large body of water (yes, it happens sometimes), something like this makes a whole lot of sense.

Filson Luggage Collection

This luggage collection looks like it could belong to Indiana Jones. It’s both utilitarian and elegant, which is kind of hard to pull off, so it deserves consideration if you’re thinking about updating your traveling gear.

“This durable luggage collection is made with industrial-weight rugged twill that’s densely woven and soaked in paraffin wax. The result is a strong material that’s highly water repellent, even in arduous conditions. Brass fittings resist corrosion in fresh or salt water and full-grain, vegetable-tanned bridle leather provides comfortable, durable straps.”

100% cotton twill; paraffin wax coating; cowhide straps.

The North Face Base Camp Duffel – Large

The North Face is one of very few logos that I can look out without getting an allergic reaction (anybody read Pattern Recognition by William Gibson?). This bag actually looks pretty sleek, which seems unlikely considering it’s a duffel coated with polyurethane, but there you go. It looks decent.

“Main compartment features a D-shaped zippered opening for high visibility of entire interior, plus an internal mesh pocket for organization; Shoulder straps with an alpine cut for comfortable, easy hauling as a backpack; Constructed of waterproof, tear-proof and abrasion-resistant 1000-denier polyester; coated with PVC on the inside and polyurethane on the outside.”
