Pack For The Unexpected
The beauty of being you is that you never know where you’ll end up on any given day on a mountaintop Aspen or a beach in Brazil. You also never know what you’ll be doing there—cracking some beers with friends, surfing, or heading off to a week at Burning Man. For a bag that’s as versatile as your social schedule, check out the Chrome Industries Sotnik Bag ($220). Not only can it be worn as a duffle or worn as a pack, it’s completely weatherproof, with a 1000 denier CORDURA® Brand grade nylon outer shell and a Welded-Waterproof 1200D Military grade truck tarpaulin liner, which means you can either use it to keep your clothes dry in a downpour OR turn the Sotnik into a cooler and fill it with ice and cold brewskis. It’s also the perfect place to stash a damp wetsuit, and don’t worry—a separate zippered compartment keeps everything else completely dry. The Sotnik also has a big old cargo capacity with a big opening, so you can easily grab stuff in and out and there are loaded of external pockets for smaller stuff you need easy access to, plus a set of side straps designed to carry your skateboard, or other large item. Whatever it its, the Sotnik can take it. Now you just have to bring it.
