Two Fresh Packs, Perfect for Traveling


We recently teamed up with Westerlind to launch a pop-up shop in SoHo filled with the best gear from our favorite brands (and yours). Select items will also be available in a digital version of our pop-up, and you’re getting the first look here. These two backpacks from Japanese purveyor F/CE are available for a limited time, so you’ll want to grab them fast. Both are crafted with precise attention to detail and beautifully merge style with utilitarianism. Shop our picks below, and scroll down for a chance to win a trip to see the pop-up in person (along with over $2,000 in prizes).

F/CE Nylon Packable Daypack


This sleek, simple daypack is made of 100 percent nylon that’s coated with Dupon Teflon to make it water resistant. It’s also easily packable.
