The Prize Up for Grabs

Nomatic Backpack

The Nomatic Backpack ($259.99) uses waterproof fabrics and hardware right down to the zippers, and makes sure its features don’t get in the way when you’re not using them. For example, the water bottle pocket magnetically collapses inward for a slimmer profile. You can also tuck the straps away when you’d prefer to carry the bag briefcase style thanks to well-placed side handles. Other features include RFID protected pockets for stashing passports, a hidden pocket for valuables, a top access pocket, a roller bag sleeve to attach to luggage, a retractable key leash, and a expandable main compartment (from 20L to 24L) to name a few.

Smith Optics Lowdown 2 Sunglasses

The key feature with Smith Optics’ Lowdown 2 sunglasses ($139) is its ChromaPop lenses, which filters specific wavelengths of light to provide better clarity, color perception, and 100% UV protection in any lighting condition. These are fitted into the Lowdown 2’s classic silhouette, which features an updated 4-base lens curvature for a flatter front design. Megol nose pads keep them comfortable for all-day wear, and the forest and tortoise frame features an eco-friendly material.

Goal Zero Flip 24 Power Bank

With the amount of tech in our pockets and bags, power is at a premium, and nothing helps you get back to work faster than a robust power bank. Goal Zero is best known for their solar charging arrays, but their line of compact, pocket-friendly banks is worth their spot in your EDC. The Flip 24 ($34.95) features a 6700mAh capacity in a profile smaller than most phones, but has enough charge to top them up about twice over. Simply plug in your device and go, and an easy battery indicator and flip-out USB tip makes maintenance a breeze.
