Fact 1: We spend A LOT of money on our cameras, lenses and accessories. Fact 2: Our photography takes us to some pretty extreme places. Fact 3: Breaking stuff sucks.

Our favorite combo is the Explore 60L Professional Kit, which includes their popular Explore Backpack, 2 small Core units, 1 medium Core Unit, 1 medium Accessory Case and 1 Rain Cover.
Viberg + Division Road Horween Heritage Collection
Viberg has long been synonymous with the upper echelon of book makers. Now they are collaborating with Washington-based Division Road for the release of the Horween Heritage Collection. The collab consists of two pairs of work boots and two trench boots , both of which utilize the legendary Chicago Horween leather. The work boots pay homage to vintage era styling and feature split soles, a larger silhouette and taller heels. The trench boots are more of a low-profile and feature wedge soles from Vibram. All four of these boots are beautifully crafted and would make an excellent addition to any man's closet.
Vollebak Graphene Jacket
Graphene is one of the most indestructible and incredible materials known to man; in fact it was actually discovered by Nobel Prize winners in 2010 so you know this is a legit material. Vollebak has taken this fabric and created a ten layer composite that is touted as being more bulletproof than steel and used it to coat their jackets for this upcoming experimental prototype. Each jacket - which comes exclusively in a black Graphene - is one part coat, one part science experiment and one part beta testing of one of the most exciting fabrics being used in menswear. The jacket will launch in the summer of 2018 and the waiting list is currently open on Vollebak's website.
