Peak Design Bags: His and Hers

Form and function

Published

on

Due to the nature of our work, finding a bag that fits everything we usually need and staying stylish seem like an impossible task. On top of all that, durability is of utmost importance.

There are very few brands out there though that are able to strike that balance. One of them is Peak Design, a brand known for professional-grade camera accessories, including bags that can neatly fit a camera or two.

Josh has long been looking for a backpack that’s structured but also sleek enough for him to take anywhere: big events, client meetings, and airports. The Everyday Backpack is a good match, especially since it comes in all black. He also loves that wearing it makes him easily identifiable as a techie. One thing he would have loved though is a little bit more expandability, so he can pack an extra set of clothes during long-haul flights, or a monitor for solo coverage.

As for Chay, she regularly switches between totes from her own bag brand and sturdy, sometimes ugly backpacks depending on the occasion or the destination. A bag like the Everyday Tote can be both and more. While she loves how durable this tote is, a more elegant material and shape would have been a better choice for her style.


Josh: Red alert

I recently got these statement sneakers that Chay did not approve of because I rarely have items in my wardrobe in bold colors. But that’s precisely why I got them — not only do they come in one of my favorite colors, they also go well with anything and everything I wear. They’re the easiest way to change up how I look on the daily.


Chay: Dress it down

This is probably what I look like on a regular work day: with my hair in a messy bun and a pair of slip-on sandals I can easily wear when we have to quickly shoot some clips outside. On longer days I carry a backpack to house my laptop, camera, tripod, and video head that thankfully the Everyday Tote can handle.


Josh: Fly high

I probably spend more time in airports and planes now than I do in my own apartment. There are a few instances where I go from airport straight to a series of meetings that require me to look a bit more put-together than usual. The all-black Everyday Backpack is sleek enough to impress at a meeting and has sufficient compartments to fit some essentials: laptop, camera, cables, extra lens, and the phones I’m reviewing.


Chay: Packed light

I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing jeans regardless of how versatile they are; they’re uncomfortable and they rarely fit my body type well. But it’s forgivable during short flights, especially when I have to pack light. I’d rather be in jeans on the plane than fold them small and tight to fit my bag.


Josh: Monochromatic

In videos and in real life, I wear the same basic tees that come in different shades of three colors: blue, black, and gray. Thinking of what to wear on a daily basis isn’t something I have a lot of time for.


Chay: Wrap it up

Dresses are always my go-to whenever I feel lazy putting together an outfit. The problem is a lot of my existing dresses border on business casual and are too warm for the tropical weather. I got a few of these wrap dresses recently that have a very summer-y vibe that a pair of white sneakers and heavy duty-looking tote won’t ruin.

Global Sources: Sustainable Cases

Published

on

At a show like Global Sources iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but what caught our attention are companies with a commitment to sustainability.

Shenzhen Bobotel Technology

Take Shenzhen Bobotel Technology for example, who makes eco-friendly cases made of wheat straw — a biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic.

They can make cases for your iPhone, Samsung, or Huawei phones, in any color you desire. Each case starts at 90 cents at a minimum order of 50 units.

C&V Global

Guangzhou-based C&V Global offers similar products, too. The company has been certified by the Global Recycled Standard.

They have iPhone cases made from recycled plastic waste. In its purest form, it looks like a simple, clear jelly case but it can come in a variety of colors in both matte and glossy finishes.

They also make biodegradable cases made of wheat straw or bamboo fiber and thermoplastics. These cases can be engraved with your favorite pro-environment slogans as well.

The product decomposes naturally after two years if you decide to discard them. You can buy the cases through CTunes.
