Beats Solo2 is an extremely popular on-ear headphones model taken to a new level – $200
A lot of people are curious about the future of Beats Electronics after the revelation that they have been acquired by Apple a few days ago. No matter what the future holds for this interesting company by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, the Apple deal didn’t stop them from releasing a new product the day after the acquisition was announced.
The Solo headphones are almost iconic by now and it’s the company’s most sold model. With this new version both the design and the sound has been reengineered from the ground up. The previous version suffered from complaints about the bass being too heavy at times and this has of course been taken care of. The exterior look has been updated with a sleeker, more comfortable design and a folding mechanism. The headphones come in several colorful versions as well as the classic black.

Topo Designs Trip Pack is a compact and light backpack with a distinct design – $89
Topo Designs from Colorado, USA, sure is an interesting company. With an unique approach to design, they create useful bags, accessories and clothes that I believe appeals to a lot of modern, active people. I really enjoy their choice of color variations that each product is available in. Usually they go for at least one or two versions with solid, dark colors that attract less attention. Besides that they often offer a few versions with a very sleek combination of colors.
The Trip Pack is my favorite of all their bags, but I can see myself finding good use for many of them. If you like to keep your gear compact without losing too much in functionality then this is a bag for you. The Trip Pack has a 8.4 L capacity and features an external zip pocket as well as an internal sleeve for a small computer or tablet. The Trip Pack is available in three color variations: all black, navy blue/red and navy blue/green.

Bellroy Card Sleeve is a slim leather wallet for your most important cards – €49
While not quite as thin as the previously recommended Supr Good Slim Wallet, the Card Sleeve by Bellroy is definitely a product that plays in the same division. This is a minimal wallet for anyone who prefers to only carry cards, but you can easily store a few folded bills in either of the three pockets if you really have to.
The main compartment will fit anything from just a few cards up to about 10. It also features a pull tab that allows for much easier access compared to the Supr Good Slim Wallet. There are two additional pockets on the front and back that will hold those two cards that you need really fast access to.
The soft, premium leather is vegetable tanned and available in five different colors. I use this daily as my main wallet and it’s just the perfect solution for me.

Hard Graft Hang Camera Strap is a stylish way to keep your camera close – $106
There are many different ways to carry your precious camera when you’re out shooting pictures, but no matter what option you prefer you always need a good shoulder strap. Pretty much every camera sold comes with a branded strap that is too thin, too weak and that doesn’t match the great aesthetics of your camera.
The Hang Camera Strap uses Hard Graft’s characteristic combination of grey felt and hand-stained, Italian leather. It simply looks great, and it is robust enough to keep cameras of any size hanging securely on your neck or shoulder. If you like the design of the Hang Camera Strap then you have a huge collection of accessories to explore over at the Hard Graft website.
