Sometimes a product comes out that you never knew you needed until you see it. The Nexus is High Above’s most minimal pack, designed around a robust waist belt and a pouch with a Fidlock magnetic closure. There’s even one of those nifty Fidlock bottles incorporated in the design. See more on the Nexus at High Above.

Outer Shell Has Improved their Camera Strap

Camera straps. They’re the photography accessory very little people pay attention to. Let’s be honest, for standard use, pretty much anything will do, but add in on-the-bike wear or usage and suddenly there’s a lot more to them. Outer Shell has developed a pretty awesome design, with quick-cinch adjustment and a sternum stabilizer. Their newest update includes a tripod-mount anchor to increase stability and improved compatibility with all types of camera strap mounts. These straps are made in SF by Outer Shell and are in stock now in a variety of colors with a retail of $58.

Drawn Away

After last year’s Solstice snow fest, the Coal Headwear and Swift Industries crew decided it was time for a redux, prompting them to take to the Bay Area’s rolling hills and coastal vistas:

“When illustrator Chris McNally invited us on a bicycle adventure through his expansive Northern California backyard, we knew we were in for a wild ride. Starting and ending at his Mission District studio, Chris would lead us on an epic 4-day tour of the SF and Marin County landmarks and landscapes that have inspired his work, and also inspired two great Seattle adventure brands—Coal Headwear and Swift Industries—to create “The Headlands Collection”.

“Drawn Away” is a story about creating close-to-home adventures with the freedom that bikes offer; about uncovering the hidden treasures and secret spots at the interface of the built and natural environments, where urban bleeds into rural, and rural into wilderness; about slowing the pace and making space for inspiration and creativity; and about the importance of building community one pedal stroke—and one brush stroke—at a time!”

Hoot Ventures’ New Website is up!

Brian and Alicia were two of the first people I connected with when I was visiting Minneapolis a few years ago.  I was lucky enough to visit their house last summer for the piece on Delcie’s bike and Brian joined us for DFL shenanigans and even had some photos featured.  It’s been awesome watching them grow as creators.  Recently Brian decided to go full time with Hoot Ventures and redesigned their website and store.  Initially, they are offering their munchie bag in three colors, but expect more wonderful things from them in the future.
