Unpacking is an unnerving chore of traveling. It always the question: should I or should I not unpack when you reach your destination. If you don’t (unpack), it will make retrieving things daunting and if you do, there’s the packing to deal with when you need to move on to the next destination. Already, there are suitcases that solve this, but what if, you are traveling light with, say, a backpack? Well, as it turns out, there is an answer and it is called Artichoke Travel Backpack. Continue reading Artichoke: Removable Built-in Shelves Comes To Travel Backpack
If you are a backpack user who actually have something in your backpack, you could be walking around with a bowling ball on your neck every time you tilt your head forward for even by just 15 degrees. This comes as a revelation to me even though it is obvious that I know that a loaded backpack is bad news for the back and neck. While it seems like an inevitable thing, the folks over at BetterBack has developed a backpack accessory that could save your neck, like literally. Continue reading SuperStraps Is A Backpack Add-on That Will Literally Save Your Neck
Have you ever walk into a woods and suddenly felt like it was a good place to rest, but you are without a tent or hammock? OK. To be fair, under normal circumstances, you probably won’t have this sudden urge to camp, or even be in a woods so unprepared. But assuming that you do, then you will be glad that you have the Nomad Hammock on your back. Inspired by the art of origami, Nomad Hammock is actually a hammock cleverly conceived to be folded to become a backpack capable of swallowing more than a handful of everyday items. Continue reading Meet A New Kind Of Hammock That Folds Down To A Functional Backpack
What’s your impression of a backpack fit for hiking? Tough, cumbersome and takes a hell lot of time to pack? That’s the norm as it seems, but not if Swift from Taiwan design house Tronnovate can help it. Dubbed the “ultimate bag to pack and unpack in a second,” the Swift takes everything you know about a sport/hiking (basically, adventure) bag and throws it out the window, and completely reinvent a bag that super light, offers accessibility in a snap, and more importantly, makes packing a swift thing to do and also slashing the time you need to find stuff within the bag. Continue reading Swift Bag Is An Adventure Backpack Unlike Anything You Have Seen
Ah… we finally figured out what Balenciaga is up to this year. This year, it is all about “inspired-by” theme. Instead of dreaming up fashion pieces from the ground up, the Parisian fashion label must have thought turning everyday items into upmarket versions is a fun thing to do. It probably is because I must admit Balenciaga’s recent products did put a smile on my face, starting with turning cheap, nylon red-white-blue bag and Ikea Frakta bag into a luxury versions, and more recently, a cat mat skirt. Today, we hear that shopping bags are also in order too. Continue reading Balenciaga Lends Lambskin To Cheap Plastic Shopping Bag. Yes, Again.

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. Continue reading HEX Regimental Collection Is A Perfect Mix Of Urban Utility And Rugged Feel
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. Continue reading Singapore’s Local Coffee To-Go Carrier Is Now An Actual Bag. Quirky!
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
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.
