Poros Tetra Backpack

It all started with a weekender. Now they’re back with the Poros Tetra Backpack. Discreet in looks, the Tetra actually packs a 10,000 mAh battery cell integrated into the bag’s front compartment, with a 2.1A USB port suitable for any USB-chargeable devices plus a second dedicated output with either a Micro USB or Lightning cable for charging your Android or iOS devices, respectively, each several times over. A large display shows the battery’s current charge state at a glance (and the push of a button), and the charger even works to once refuel USB C enabled laptops like the Apple’s recent MacBook and Google’s Chromebook Pixel. And the TSA-approved backpack also boasts a sleek, modern build, complete with a protective sleeve for a 15-inch laptop, Air Straps that soften and comfortably distribute the load on your shoulders, plus a multitude of internal pockets to tidy up your on-the-go essentials.

Néit Collapsible Luggage

Unsurprising considering it’s made to store lots of your stuff, luggage takes up a lot of room. That’s why the Néit Collapsible Luggage line folds up to shrink down in size by 50% to 70%. Inspired by the rugged shell of an armadillo, these tough, waterproof pieces of luggage feature fold-down walls and retractible spinner wheels that altogether significantly reduce the space occupied by the Néit. A carabiner-like handle allows for hanging as storage plus optional GPS lets you track your lost luggage in case of loss in transit.

Hit up Kickstarter for details – roughly $215

Able Archer Duffel

The Able Archer Duffel conveys a distinct aesthetic when compared to more typical everyday carry pieces. Specifically, this bag brings to mind far-off places, rough-and-tumble adventures, and the need for an exceptionally durable, sturdy bag. The duffel itself is crafted from mil-spec water-resistant canvas on the exterior, and, inside, from dependable nylon that’s equally hard-wearing. Complete with a removable laptop sleeve and boasting waterproof specs right down to the zippers, Able Archer builds its bags for all kinds of conditions. Hidden side-access zippers conceal an inner compartment made for storing everything from tripods to notebooks. The brand’s trademark interior and exterior Molle-compatible Archer-Mount webbing adds an extra dimension of versatility and functionality to the bag while the minimal aspect of its colorways — which include leaf (shown), sand, ash, and cement — ensure it embodies a feel that’s just as ready to complement an overseas film shoot as a bike ride across the city.

Else, it’s equipped with dual top rolled handles, an interior zip wall pocket for securing smaller goods, and comes in your choice of either charcoal (shown) or black.

Carter Shoulder Holster

Can’t go five minutes without your tablet, or almost equally massive smartphone/phablet? The Carter Shoulder Holster is a new way to carry your favorite tech devices in a decidedly stylish way. Its holster is tailored to fit most 8-inch tablets or comparably sized objects and comes with integrated 1.18-inch wide elastic suspenders that keep it close to your body and out of harm’s way during your commute. Still, just in case, the case itself is built from a hard shell that disperses shocks but that’s discreetly concealed behind leather and suede. It’s theft resistant, opening only from the front with a rigid magnetic flap closure, and comes in three leather colors: vegetable tanned (shown), grey, and black.

Saturdays x Porter Backpack

Created in collaboration with B Jirushi Yoshida, the Saturdays x Porter Backpack maintains a minimal outer aesthetic that other bags are hard pressed to match. A 600-denier polyester oxford fabric is PVC processed on the inside for water resistance. That’s paired with a water-stop zipper that boasts a FCS Fin Key as its zipper pull. It’s all topped off with a cross between the two brands’ insignias in the form of an embroidered Porter logo over Saturdays’ iconic slash.
