Everlane-Backpack

If you don’t yet have an upscale version of your high school Jansport in your collection of bags, you don’t know what your missing. Unlike the messenger, you can comfortably divide loads among both shoulders. Unlike briefcases, backpacks are hand’s free. The same goes for duffles. Plus, backpacks are just as cool now as they were when you were toting a Trapper Keeper and not an iPad or a laptop. Everlane is back with a new version of their backpack and this one is even better than its awesome predecessor. Better fabrics, antique brass snaps and zippers, easy access storage pockets and a waterproof interior for your electronics are just a few of the reasons that you will inevitably buy one of these when they get released. They’re also only $100 and available in two styles with four total colors. Back to school finally doesn’t suck.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
