Hunter is the maker of iconic weatherproof boots. They've now taken their rubberized material and applied it to a backpack. The Original Scuba Backpack ($295) is made from a modern rubberized bonded fabric that was inspired by Hunter's scuba theme from their AW14 runway collection. The bag is perfectly compact and features a parachute clip and zip at the top, two side pockets, a padded laptop pocket, a front zip pocket, and adjustable straps. You can get it in any color you want as long as it's black.
Air quality is becoming increasingly more important as pollution and other harmful allergens mount up. Generally to maintain air quality you'd have to fit your whole home and office with an expensive HEPA filter. However thanks to the Bitfinder Awair ($149) which continuously monitors the air around you, highlighting any problems. Even more the incredibly handy companion app can even alert you if something's not quite right. Meaning you can respond appropriately and very quickly. The Awair is available to buy now and at just under $150 it's also a sound investment.

If you have a Honda CBR1000rr laying around then you'll want to pay attention. Bill Webb, an industrial designer with Huge Designs has created the CBR1000rr "Cafe Fighter" Bolt On Kit ($TBA), making stripped down cafe fighters out of the iconic CBR's. Bill says, “I wanted to embrace modern technology and create a refined streetbike with a minimalist, cafe racer philosophy". Bills kit includes a single seat tail assembly, mounts for critical sensors and gauges, and much more. Bill says if people like the design of the bike he can produce kits for 2009-2015 CBR1000rr's. So if you're interested make sure you head over to his site and let him know. You can read the complete article over at Bike EXIF.
I'm a sucker for anything associated with industrial applications that can be used for the home. Steel Canvas has been building high quality and long lasting canvas baskets, hampers and bags since 1921. The Carhartt x Steele Canvas Laundry Cart ($279) takes their quality and Carhartt's design philosophy to create a great product for carrying everything from firewood to your dirty cloths. The Cart is available in one size (18" x 18" x 21") in black or natural.
Mark your calendars for tomorrow when of the wildest kicks are dropping and I'm pretty sure they're not going to last too long. The Nike Free Orbit II SP "Polka Dot" Packs ($TBA) feature a pyramid molded upper with contrasting polka dots. This is an agressive contemporary design, definitely not for the timid of heart. The artistic upper sits on a Free 5.0 sole unit and is finished off with a medial zip closure. You'll be able to get these bad boys in three colorways when they drop.
