Deciding between a messenger bag and a backpack is a decision every guy is going to have to make at some point in his life. For many of us it’s subconscious, we mess around with both after we’re done hauling around 80 pound algebra textbooks and one of the two just sticks. If you lean backpack, and don’t mind dropping some serious cash on a good one, the Hector Backpack from Property Of… fits the bill. Ideal for totting around your laptop without beating the snot out of it, the Hector Backpack handles all your modern-day electronics along with your old school writing supplies in a wax-coated canvas and leather trim package. You get three color options (we’re digging the Sand) and buckle closure on the front to keep everything in check. It’s what you would have tossed your Trapper Keepers in if you had style back then.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
