November 12, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


The 5-Day “Mule” 55L backpack from Roark Revival is the brand’s most versatile and purpose-built pack yet. This hybrid rucksack duffle has increased storage and accessibility, allowing you to strap it on for a trek, or sling it into your flight’s overhead compartment. The litany of compartments are set up for anything you might need, from a hidden passport pocket to a laptop sleeve and protected sunglass pocket. And with the compression straps and tie-downs, you can pack as much as your back can handle. On the streets or on the trail, the 5-Day “Mule” 55L backpack can stow whatever your itinerary calls for. It’s technical enough to withstand the elements you may find yourself in during journeys of any season, but never compromises style either.
