Timbuk2-Especial-Tres-Backpack

Every time we put on a backpack and hop on the bike we’re terrified that water is going to fall from the heavens and ruin everything inside. Seeing as how it’s impossible to disconnect these days, that collection of stuff normally includes at least an iPad or a laptop. Timbuk2 to the rescue with the Especial Tres Backpack. The laptop pocket on this rolltop beauty is so obsessively waterproofed (it’s welded!) that it’s guaranteed. That’s definitely important, but what else does it do? It expands enough to accommodate a six pack or a full case of beer. The back panel is ventilated to eliminate the dreaded lower back shirt stain. There are also pockets for everything from keys to U-locks, chest and waist straps, reflective pieces and the main compartment roll top. The only thing this bag doesn’t do is pack itself.

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
