AP Series VX Rucksack ($280)
The VX Rucksack is stylish enough for work and durable enough for the trail. It has a ripstop shell backed with a waterproof membrane, urethane-coated zippers, and a lifetime warranty. There’s also a zipper pocket to house your computer or iPad, as well as five other smaller pockets and compartments for storage.
Randolph Engineering Aviator Sunglasses ($110)
You need a quality pair of sunglasses no matter what season it is. So quit buying throwaway shades that don’t adequately protect your eyes anyway, and get a pair of RE Aviator Sunglasses. RE has been supplying the Department of Defense with shades for 30 years, so if their aviators are good enough for actual aviators, they’re good enough for you. They block nearly all of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, come with a limited warranty on parts, and make you look like you’re more than comfortable spending time on the highway to the danger zone.
