The Neistat Brothers: Jack-Knife Hack

Read More

If you don’t watch the Neistat Brothers on HBO, you should. I can’t put my finger on it, but their homemade productions are just down right addictive. Take the above for example… They make a “Keyman” only without the Leatherman and with a Swiss Army Knife. Admittedly, their craftsmanship isn’t tops but it is the first time I’ve seen someone do this with a proper folder.

Pretty cool.

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…

Read More

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.

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.
