The North Face is probably best known for their fantastic jackets and all-weather gear, but the brand is branching out later this year with the Access Pack. The bag that includes multiple patent-pending features has plenty of things worth looking for in a bag. The main compartment that’s capable of holding an entire day’s worth of essentials is easily accessible via a new clip system. More importantly, each of the things you store inside from your phone to your iPad to your external hard drive is effortlessly retrievable with ejector tabs. Then there’s the integrated tension lock on the shoulder straps, the exo-skeletal structure and the clean, clam-shell design. It’s the perfect pack for the day-to-day. The North Face Access Pack will be available later this year through select North Face retailers.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
