Backpacks

The VuPackPole is an extended articulated actioncam mount, that is attached to the user's ...

Although it may seem like it was just yesterday that actioncams came into common use, already people are getting frustrated with the limitations of the “here’s what I was looking at” viewpoint. Thanks to innovations such as the 3rd Person View, BoomPro and GO360, however, adventurous videographers can now include themselves in their self-shot videos. One of the latest such camera-on-a-stick gadgets is the backpack-mounted VuPackPole.  Read More

Henty's Wingman bag keeps your suit neat even on the toughest bicycle commutes

Bicycle commuting is one of those things that sounds like a universally great idea up until you actually try it. Nothing will start the day off on the wrong foot like showing up 20 minutes late (you may not be in as good of shape as you thought), dripping in sweat and pothole water. But, hey, at least you get to brag about being green. The Henty Wingman aims to make the practice of bicycle commuting as great as the concept, by keeping your suit dry, free from sweat and road grit, and looking like it just popped out of the dry cleaning plastic.  Read More

The CamelBak Bootlegger is a hydration pack designed for the ski slopes

Hydration backpacks have made carrying water during many sports much easier. For some other sports, however, the hydration pack isn't that much more convenient than a water bottle. When it comes to skiing, hydration packs freeze easily and can be uncomfortable on a chairlift. Camelbak has a new design that promises to make hydration more ski-friendly.  Read More

A professional photographer needs to be able to grab their camera and any equipment at a moment's notice, and Kata has been producing camera bags with this in mind for years. For its newest lightweight bag, the company seems to have taken some inspiration from a style of handgun, to produce a backpack that can help swap lenses much more efficiently. The Revolver-8 PL backpack stores a DSLR camera and dispenses up to five lenses from a rotating internal chamber that can be readily accessed through a side opening.  Read More

The Torch FLUX adds some light

Just a few weeks after releasing its LED-illuminated bicycle helmet, Torch is back – on your back. Like its T1 helmet, the Torch FLUX backpack is designed to keep bicycle commuters a little safer on city streets thanks to its integrated LED lighting.  Read More

Shimano aims to create a more ergonomic biking pack

Shimano is one of the most well known names in cycling thanks to a component line that appears on bicycles around the world. The company is determined to appear on bicycle riders as well. Its new Unzen hydration pack line rethinks pack design in an effort to make it less restrictive and more comfortable.  Read More

The Honey Badger backpack is a durable composite pack that doubles as a bicycle pannier

Once a relatively lesser known member of the animal kingdom, the honey badger rose to infamy last year, becoming a legend among critters. It's not all that surprising to see the animal referenced in a product name, especially one designed to bring some of the animal's tenacity and ferocity to the outdoors. The new Honey Badger backpack may not survive an all out attack by a honey badger, but it'll survive all kinds of other adventures.  Read More

The Freefold commuter travel system is said to maintain the shape of a business suit jacke...

If you're the kind of businessman who travels cheek to cheek with commuters on the metro or subway – or who cycles to work – then you'll know that by the time you change into your once-pristine suit at the office, it can look more like a "before" image from a steam iron commercial than something fit to impress the boss. Tony Higson's crusade against creases started with Suit Commute, and is now about to enter the next phase with Freefold.  Read More
