Lexdray Spring/Summer 2015 – It’s pretty simple stuff. Use premium materials, and you have long lasting goods. Lexdray has always stuck with this business model, and the accessories brand enters into spring and summer with some heavy color-blocking. Using travel destinations as inspiration, the collection is made up of four bags that are built with high-density ballistic nylon and a heavy-wearing custom twill blend. To add a little contrast, the black nylon/twill blend is accented with a gray pinstripe denim textile. Look for the collection to be available for pre-sale on the Lexdray website now, and to hit stores in a few weeks.

Poler Stuff Napsack – The best way to looking like a proper tree-hugging hippie is to get on the Napsack bandwagon. Poler has flipped the script on the traditional sleeping bag with their new design.

It’s definitely an unorthodox look, but the synthetic microfiber bottom ensures the Napsack keeps your body warm. Look for the Napsack to be available now in a string of colorways to choose from.
