How many times have you found yourself in need of a bag when you’re on a trip? We can’t be the only ones that have gotten in line at the local big box after a trip for essentials and realized that we don’t have any alternatives other than their stupid plastic bags. Don’t get us wrong, those things are necessary for cleaning up after the pets, but they’re not exactly ideal for the bike, public transportation or even a long walk. But if you don’t want to carry a legit backpack all the time, you’re screwed. Not anymore. Outlier hooked up with Hyperlite Mountain Gear to make the featherlight Minimal Backpack out of  Nonwoven Dyneema, a crazy technical fabric that’s lightweight, waterproof and stronger than steel. As with everything Outlier, it’s all black and perfectly minimal. Two straps, a rolltop and a clasp closure round out the functionality of the pack flat bag.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
