Nightfall

Josh Brede shared his newest video project, entitled Nightfall. Here’s a little background:

““Nightfall” is a speculative commercial that tells the story of a hardworking messenger who depends on his Chrome gear to keep him going. I made this commercial as my senior thesis at Drexel University, to conclude my studies of TV Production. I set out to create a commercial that portrays a brand I love, rely on, and wear every day.
This couldn’t have been possible without the amazing amount of support from my production & post production crew. You guys seriously rule.”

Inside Line Equipment: Default XPAC Backpack

I always love seeing new product from ILE and these Default XPAC backpacks look great!

“XPAC is manufactured by Dimension Polyants, woven and lamented in Putnam Connecticut, USA. They specialize in racing sails for boats, but also make some great fabrics for bags.
The fabric has a waterproof laminate, as well as our RF Welded vinyl liner roll-top to keep your gear dry.

The bottom features a 1000 Denier Cordura nylon for its unparalleled abrasion resistance. We are using exclusively Acetal/Delrin fasteners and adjusters for their extreme durability. Our finely tuned shoulder straps are padded, and distribute the load evenly. And the strap angles are designed to fit a broad range of size people.”

These lightweight bags are $260 at ILE

Well Used: Poler’s Excursion Camera Insert

Well Used: Poler’s Excursion Camera Insert

I’ve used a lot of camera bags and honestly, they each have their own place. For instance, right now I’m using one of F-Stop’s Loki packs. It’s great for a strictly-photo trip, but as I’m packing for the Amgen Tour of California today, I broke out my Poler Excursion camera insert once again.

Why? Because it’s modular! This thing is so clever and even though it’s sold as a set with the Excursion backpack, I’ve used just the insert for over a year.

Mission Workshop’s new VX-21 lightweight backpacks look amazing. I love the multicam and hunter / safety orange. It’s like Mission Workshop can see into my mind!

Outlier: The Black Minimal Backpack

I love my first generation Minimal Backpack. As the name implies, it’s the simplest form of portage. A traditional dry sack design, rendered in Hyperlite Mountain Gear‘s proprietary material, nonwoven Dyneema. My only complaint with the first run was that it was white. It got dirty easily.

The new Outlier Minimal Backpack comes in black and still kicks ass. Check out more photos and pick one up at Outlier.

Hold Fast: Day Pack Now Available

I have been using the shit out of the new Hold Fast Day Pack since Interbike this year. At first, I thought “I love Hold Fast but I don’t need another backpack”. Then the size won me over. It’s, it’s so small. I throw my flask in one side pocket, a u-lock in the other and still have plenty of room for a towel, flip flops, cameras and anything else I’d use on a trip to the river to swim.

It’s Made in the USA, uses the military MOLLE system and comes in black! The purple accents on this one rule. Pick one of these up here, at HOLD FAST and just wait till you see my new staps!
