Vosteed’s Mini Labrador Knife Offers Titanium Quality on a Budget

The Mini Labrador is the latest in Vosteed’s catalog of canine-themed everyday cutters and sizes down the sleek original to a more pocket-friendly 2.73” blade. The rear flipper has a minimal design whose only embellishments are jimping on the flipper tab and a logo on the titanium clip, but its sleekness speaks for itself.

The 14C28N drop point blade folds into chamfered titanium handles, flies out on bearings, and secures with a frame lock reinforced with a titanium backspacer. While it would have been nice to have it be more ambidextrous with a crossbar lock and reversible clip, we can still appreciate its intended design and user. The Mini Labrador comes in two colors and would be a solid addition to any titanium-themed setup, especially at its $69 price point.

Mission Workshop’s Mass Transit Duffle Delivers Style, Functionality, and Durability

Large duffel bags are too heavy and cumbersome for EDC and are typically relegated for travel use only. But things become more interesting when makers construct them out of lightweight and durable VX21 sailcloth fabric. Take the new Mass Transit 33-liter duffle bag from Mission Workshop, for example. The Mass Transit is the most oversized bag you can safely mount on the handlebars of a bike. But because of the need to transport it on that bike, it’s made far lighter at 3.4 pounds than a comparable bag of other materials. VX21 X-Pac sailcloth has excellent abrasion, tear, and weather resistance, and Mission Workshop stitched it with care into a large handlebar duffel bag to fit whatever your heart desires.

The Mass Transit features a large laptop compartment, zip pockets for stationery and other small tech essentials, and four open compartments for clothes, documents, and other valuables. The handles and straps are all designed to tuck away so you can streamline it when attached to a handlebar. This feature is also great for use in luggage compartments when traveling. And thanks to its waterproof, made-in-the-USA sailcloth construction and water-resistant YKK Aquaguard zippers, it’s made to resist the elements on the way to your destination and beyond.

Vasque Resurrects Legendary Sundowner and Skywalk Boots with Modern Upgrades

Vasque has nearly six decades of experience making performance hiking footwear, and for 2024, they’ve brought two of their most iconic styles back to life from their archives. The Sundowner and the Skywalk are beloved leather boots with a classic style but built for the needs of the modern hiker with updated materials and construction.

The Sundowner GTX launched in 1984 and updated in 2015, with a sleek all-leather design sourced from Vasque’s tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota. The full-grain leather construction is reinforced and waterproofed with GORE-TEX, and a molded polyurethane and TPU shank midsole is finished with a Vasque Pyrenees lug outsole. The Skywalk GTX comes in a retro two-tone leather and abrasion-resistant mesh design, lined and waterproofed with GORE-TEX, and steps out with the same Pyrenees lug sole.

Lace up the classics for your next adventure, and rest assured because, like all Vasque boots, both the Sundowner GTX and Skywalk GTX come with free shipping and returns.

Sendy Knife Offers More Than Just a Blade With Cutting Edge Design and Integrated Tools

Imagine if your pocket knife could house even more nifty tools within its sleek design. With the CIVIVI Sendy by talented knifemaker Ben Peterson, that’s exactly what you get. It includes a toothpick, tweezers, and an in-line flipper that is fidget-friendly. The blade, the liners, the tweezers, and the toothpick all fit perfectly inside the handle. The Nitro-V spey point blade strikes a balance between toughness and edge retention, making it ideal for both modern outdoor tasks and everyday use.

Additionally, you can opt for a drop-point blade if that’s what you’re into. The G-10 handle ensures a secure grip, though alternatives like Micarta and wood are also available.
