BOND Travel Gear Attache 13

Let's face it: a lot of business briefcases just won't cut it for an EDCer. They're generally plain, have a single function (to keep papers and folders in a rectangular enclosure), and are made from a simple combination of leather, plastic, and metal. That's not good enough for the folks at BOND, who make highly functional, versatile, and EDC-focused soft goods. So when it comes to the humble briefcase, their Attache 13 is anything but. With design cues and materials from tactical packs and a function-led approach to organization, it's a bag that ensures an awesome day in, and out of, the office for your EDC.

At its heart the Attache 13 is a slim briefcase that fits and protects a 13” laptop and similarly sized tech. But even starting with its exterior, BOND set out to create something exceptional. Rugged nylon, weatherproof YKK zippers, and Hypalon are materials more commonly associated with tactical bags, but they're used in the Attache 13 to protect your gear. The full clamshell-opening style also takes its cues from travel bags, allowing the Attache 13 to lay flat when open so you can best survey and organize its contents. No more having to fish in the depths of a bag that only opens halfway. A quick-access front pocket, nylon webbing handles and strap, and metal hardware round out its external features.

Speaking of organizing its contents, there's even more design choices inspired by the Attache 13's tactical peers. Opposite the laptop/tech sleeve compartment are no-slip, quick-access loops front and center so you can easily grab lone essentials like pens or cables. These pair with mesh pockets to both keep things from falling out as well as giving you an at-a-glance visual of your gear. Behind these are larger mesh zip pockets for larger items like notebooks or power cables, as well as extra loops for loose essentials like your keys.

The BOND Attache 13 may be overbuilt and overkill for the office, but that's exactly the kind of rugged gear that EDCers appreciate. You can pick one up in black and tan or a black multicam colorway at a huge discount from Amazon at the link below.

BOND Tool Roll

There's nothing worse than having to rummage through a bag to find the gear you need. It's frustrating to say the least, but it happens even to the best of us. That's why it's especially important to keep your gear organized in one place inside your bag. Expanding upon their lineup of EDC pouches and dopp kits, BOND offers a new organization solution with their durable Tool Roll. It's a unique way to keep all your gear protected in one place thanks to its efficient rolling design.

There's quite a lot of organization space built into the Tool Roll's design. It starts with three large pockets, sized just right for passports and small notebooks, as well as your smaller electronics. Then there's nine useful “no-slip” elastic holders that can fit your various pens, flashlights, knives, and cables. At the edge of the Tool Roll there's a YKK-zippered compartment for smaller gear and other valuables. When you're done loading it up, just roll it together and close it with the included aircraft-grade aluminum hook and strap. When it's time to get to work, unrolling the organizer gives you at-a-glance identification of your gear as well as easy access.

And with all that space, it's a good thing that the Tool Roll is built out of hardy 840D nylon. With its double-stitching and bartack construction, you can feel confident filling it with your best gear. The Travel Roll is built to last, and BOND Travel Gear stands by its longevity with a lifetime warranty. No matter what you carry and what you do, you can use the BOND Tool Roll to suit your needs.
