PacSafe Z400 Anti-Theft Messenger Bag

submitted by Jonathan Tayag

Having a bag to carry your valuable essentials is pretty convenient, but someone out to grab your stuff probably feels the same way. In one brief moment, you can kiss all your belongings goodbye. That is, unless you're carrying a bag designed to beat burglars at their own game, like Pacsafe's Intasafe Z400 messenger bag. It's built from the ground up to seriously resist theft so you can carry with confidence as you go about your commute.

With lightweight stainless steel wire in the Z400's shoulder strap, good luck to anyone who tries to cut the bag away off your shoulder. eXomesh slashguard material reinforces the bag's poly canvas exterior to guard against pickpockets attempting to slash holes into the bottom of the bag to grab your stuff. Its zipper pulls also come together at a single anchor lock point Pacsafe calls the Roobar, making it convenient for you to secure the bag. RFID security adds to the Z400's physical defenses, which is great for keeping your passport and cards safe against electronic identity theft.

With 19L capacity and room to carry both a 15" laptop and 10" tablet, there's plenty of room to keep your everyday essentials safe. The interior also comes with internal pockets and storage compartments to keep it all organized.

Peace of mind is one lock away. The only thing you have to worry about is figuring out which color works best for you. Pick up the Pacsafe Instasafe Z400 at the Amazon link below.

Mininch Duoket

submitted by Everyday Carry

"Conceived by Mininch — the guys who came up with the Tool Pen, Tool Pen Mini, and Wrenchit — Duoket this time isn’t a tool but is equally ingenious. Duoket is both a jacket and bag, switching between the two at a whim with nothing but a zip/unzip and making it easier to tackle chilly morning commutes without having to deal with carrying your jacket by hand in the evening. The jacket’s multitude of interior zippered pockets become the bag’s inner compartments so that everything stays right where it should be without having to reorganize ever time it transforms. As a bag it’s got both grab handles and a removable shoulder strap and..." (via GearHungry)

Orient Ray Raven II

submitted by Ed Jelley

Whether you're in the office or out and about, a diver is one of the best types of watches you can wear for everyday use. Dive watches sport best-in-class water resistance, great legibility, and tool-like durability. The Orient Ray Raven II is no exception. Besides the standard dive watch features, it has a blacked-out PVD coating that adds extra durability and a stealthy appearance that'll look great on your wrist no matter the occasion.

The watch has 200M of water resistance, which is more than enough for swimming and diving. The solid metal caseback and screw down crown add an extra barrier against water and dust. It’s easy to read the time too. The Ray Raven’s large hands and indices are treated with Super Luminova paint. It casts a bright green glow when charged by the sun or your EDC flashlight and lasts for hours. Like most dive watches, the Raven Ray II features a unidirectional bezel for tracking elapsed time. Setting the bezel is great for timing anything from how long dinner has been in the oven to length of a workout.

The Raven Ray II stays ticking thanks to its in-house automatic movement. The watch is powered by the motion of your wrist, so as long as you wear it everyday, it'll keep running. The case measures in at a conservative 41.5mm, ideal for most wrist sizes. You can grab one for yourself via the link below.
