I have been in love with Incase since purchasing my very first pack several years ago. The quality and attention to detail rivals that of the Apple products they are built for. This Campus Pack is one of my favorite packs they have come out with. The colorway, pocket structure and overall design is just awesome.
I have been a longtime fan of Poketo and their uniquely crafted products. I especially like their wallets. They have recently started selling these Recycled Street Banner Bags that are really cool as well. The bags are made of street banners from Seoul and made by an eco-friendly non-profit shop in South Korea that specializes in creating one of a kind hand-crafted goods. So not only are you reducing waste when purchasing one of these bags, but you will have a one of a kind bag that nobody in the world has.
I really wish I had discovered this before venturing out of the country for the summer. The Incase Travel Dop Kit is a mini case meant for your iPhone, iPod and other goodies that need some extra protection. The case has a fur lined pocket with cord management, mesh pockets and a removable accessory clip. It’s a simple case, but I have a thing for bags whether they are small, big or whatever their function. Especially if they are made with the attention and quality of Incase bags.
More often than not the key to good product design is simplicity, with a bit of edge applied in moderation. As is the case with Baggu. These reusable shopping bags were designed to replace the paper and plastic bags you use at the grocery store. Unlike many other bags I have seen with the same idea in mind these bags are actually stylish and their colorways are awesome. Baggu bags are made from a durable rip-stop nylon and come with a handy little stuff pouch so you can keep it in your purse or man-bag. The best part about Baggu (besides doing your part to help save the environment) is the cost. One bag is $8, 3-packs are $22 and a 6-pack is only $38!

“We Make Bags.” it’s as simple as that to TRKFLD, who do much more than just that in my eyes. TRKFL (Pronounced Track + Field, as far as I can tell) makes a wide variety of colorful and unique backpacks, handbags, messenger bags and more. All of their products are made from Sunbrella® brand fabric which is a high quality acrylic designed to be fade resistant, water repellent, breathable and best of all super vibrant. Unfortunately it does not look like they have and online store at this point, but check their store list and see if there is a retailer near you.
I think it was close to 7 years ago when I first started Mesh Magazine I published an interview with Mark Darren AKA Madsteez. His crazy style really caught my attention and I knew it was only a matter of time before he blew-up. Now his name is all over and his artwork is crazier than ever. The recent project he collaborated with Boosted Mobile on is no exception. The Madsteez x Boosted Device Case Collection has pieces designed to accommodate just about any of your electronic gadgets such as cell phone, iPod or Blackberry. In addition to the electronic device cases the collection also offers a larger sized nap sack, messenger bag and hip bag, all of which are made from “vegan-approved” materials. Check out BoostedMobile.com for more info and retailer locations. Also peep this exclusive Boosted interview with Madsteez himself to see what he has to say about his art and his future plans.
I have always thought it would be cool to have an easy way to transport your iMac. The computer is so light and compact, it seems it wouldn’t be too hard. Recently while searching for a way to take my iMac overseas I found the iLugger. This is a bag designed for the 17 and 20 inch iMacs that makes is easy to take your iMac with you. The bag also provides a hard plastic screen protector making it safe too. So if you are a DJ wanting a bigger display than your MacBook is giving you, the iLugger may be your ticket. The actual design/colors of the bags looks like it could use some work, and the price seems a little much, but hopefully the iLugger will inspire better bags to come.
