Mohawk General Recycled Bags

I’m a sucker for old military bags. I use an attache from WWII as a briefcase, an officer’s dispatch case for my camera bag, and tons of other vintage canvas bags and artifacts for other uses. Vintage military stuff is just made so damned well… and feels so damned good… It’s all very hard for me to resist.

In any case, I stumbled across a little online joint called Mohawk General Store. They are located on the west coast and feature some pretty cool military bags that they’ve cut up and repurposed. I expected to see crazy boutique pricing, but they are actually pretty reasonable. If you are looking for a unique everyday bag, check them out.

Timbuk2 Tool Rolls…

I love tool rolls. I have old WW2 issued rolls in all of my cars. They compactly carry just about everything I need from a bolt turning aspect and keep rattles to a minimum. I’ve always kind of wondered why tools rolls lost their popularity. Apparently, so did Timbuk2… They released their modern take on a tool roll earlier this week. I think it rules.

Gordy’s Camera Straps

So ya got yourself a super slick camera, but you are still using that cheesy wrist strap or ultra-uncomfortable necker that it came with? I was like you until last week… Then, I stumbled upon this dude named Gordy that makes these super boss camera straps. My cameras are sporting leather now.

You can learn more here.

Even if you don’t need a strap, at least check out the gallery. It’s totally worth your time.

Hipster Persona

I love this shit. Check it out:

In Persona, his deliciously voyeuristic, fashion forward portraits, Jason Travis snaps hipster Atlantans along with the contents of their messenger bags, backpacks and clutches to determine “what they deem important in their lives.” You are what you schlep.
