HEX Regimental Collection Is A Perfect Mix Of Urban Utility And Rugged Feel

HEX brand has a new line of bags that bears the perfect mix of urban utility and rugged feel. Called HEX Regimental Rugged Quilted Camo Bag Collection, it consists of 15 pieces of bags and sleeves each boasting a water-resistant, nylon in camo print, fabric lined and quilted. I will be honest here. It is hard to imagine quilted design with camo design, mostly because quilted is usually associated with luxury and sophistication while camo points toward ruggedness. However, from the looks of it, HEX may have pulled it off nicely. Don’t believe? Just take a look at the product images available with this post, touch your heart and tell us they are not.

Singapore’s Local Coffee To-Go Carrier Is Now An Actual Bag. Quirky!

A Singapore lifestyle product brand seems to have taken a page off today’s design trend of taking design inspirations from everyday objects. The label, called Wheniwasfour, has turned a local icon into a bag and the result is way more LOL. But it is only as quirky only if you understand the local culture in Singapore. You see, over in Singapore, when you take away local style coffee (which is brewed from the good’ol coffee socks, btw), you’d get it in a transparent plastic bag with somewhat elastic (if you stretch hard enough) strings for carrying. Drop a straw in it and you all set. That’s a stark contrast to most western countries where paper cups are the receptacle of choice.

Incase’s First Connected Suitcase Is Sleek, Minimalist And USB-C Equipped

There are a handful of “high-tech” suitcases out there. We have seen quite a bit here, but if you’d prefer a high-tech travel roller designed and made by a long-standing, reputable bag maker over those offered by untested startups, well, here it is, the first ‘connected’ luggage from bag and gadget accessories maker, Incase. Called NoviConnected 4 Wheel Hubless Travel Roller, this sleek, minimalist suitcase features a class-A makrolon polycarbonate shell, polyester jacquard interior liner and futuristic-looking, hubless smooth glide wheels that are removable. Why removable? I have absolutely no idea. Perhaps, it facilitates easy replacement when the needs arise? Continue reading Incase’s First Connected Suitcase Is Sleek, Minimalist And USB-C Equipped

Dadbag Adds Dad’s Beer Belly To Your Waist Without Actually Having One

I am not aware of any man who harbors the secret desire to have a beer belly, AKA dad bod. I mean, seriously, no man would want an oversized belly that looks like they are three months pregnant. However, in some rare instances, there are man folks who sought out this alternative look, but if you happen to be one of those odd balls, well then, the good news is, the Dadbag is here to help. Conceived by one Albert Pukies, the Dadbag is “made for people who want a Dad bod without eating junk food,” or perhaps, for those who simply love a dash of quirkiness in their life.

12L Motorcycle Tail Bag: A Storage That Won’t Mar The Look Of Your Ride

So, you have a hot, sporty two-wheeler and the last thing you want is to slap it with a cumbersome cargo box to contain your belongings. Seriously, no self-professed bike lovers will want that. You’d be doing the bike injustice, really. But the question comes back to, what happens if you need to bring some stuff with you on your road trips? I do not know the answer, but this recent hat tip that landed on our inbox might shed a hint: The 12L Motorcycle Tail Bag by ALMS NYC. As the product name implies, it is a bag with a voluminous 12-liter capacity for the things you need to bring along when you hit the roads while staying low profile, secured to the rear of your bike. Continue reading 12L Motorcycle Tail Bag: A Storage That Won’t Mar The Look Of Your Ride

Mexxenger Is An Expressive Bag, Comes With Wireless Charging As An Option

Wireless charging on-the-go is just about as crazy as it sounds, or so we thought. If you think it is not possible, well, I guess you and I are both wrong because there’s a new bag, messenger bag to be exact, in town that actually has a pocket which charges your Qi wireless charging compatible smartphones. We are not sure how it works to ensure wireless charging aren’t periodically disconnect, but in case it fails, there is always the USB route. Pretty neat, eh? Called Mexxenger (note: not a type, btw), it is just about as high-tech as it says it is. Apart from wireless charging, it has a non-critical-to-a-bag use but yet interesting enough feature called Smart Badges. Continue reading Mexxenger Is An Expressive Bag, Comes With Wireless Charging As An Option

State Bicycle Co. Teamed Up With The Simpsons Some Donut-ish Accessories

What has cult TV cartoon series The Simpsons has to do with cycling? Nothing. What has the iconic pink donut in the The Simpsons got to do with cycling? Nothing either. However, that does not make the The Simpsons x State Bicycle Co. Limited Edition Accessories, a collaboration between State and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products (FCP) and The Simpsons, any less desirable. In fact, I thought the collection of hats, backpack, apparels, and bicycle/cycling accessories, are oddly attractive. It could be the pink donut(s) that decorated the various merchandises that makes them so irresistible. In a gender-stereotyping way of looking at it, pink is not quite the color for dudes, but pink donut(s) on the other hand makes all the difference. Continue reading State Bicycle Co. Teamed Up With The Simpsons Some Donut-ish Accessories

Trust Us, You Will Want This Toiletry Bag The Next Time When You Travel

I don’t travel often, but when I did recently, this hat tip happen to pop up and it really made me think about the thing travelers usually don’t gave a damn but yet still brood about: toiletry bag AKA washbag. My last travel which was the whole of the last two weeks, I had an oblong toiletry with two compartments. Ok, maybe just one. What I did was, I dumped everything in the one compartment with only ziplock bags to separate the potential ‘hazard’ and wet items from the rest. Clearly, not the best idea, but the Premium Toiletry Bag For Traveling by Gravel could be the answer I have been looking for. This convention-challenging wonder pack has not one, not two but several compartments designed with common toiletry items in mind.
