Just because you're on the road doesn't mean you can't have a great cup of coffee every morning. The Blue Bottle x Timbuk2 Sabbatical Travel Kit packs everything you need to brew terrific coffee in a single, stylish bag. Included in the kit are a Hario drip scale, a TSUKI-USAGI kettle, a Porlex Mini hand grinder, a Blue Bottle travel dripper, a 2 oz. sample of Blue Bottle beans, two Falcon enamelware tumblers paired with two snap-on felt covers, and a pack of #1 filters. It all arrives in a custom Timbuk2 bag, which has an exterior of gray waxed canvas and black leather with a soft liner providing padding and protection for all its contents.
Designed for compliance with IATA standards for carry-on luggage, the Alchemy Equipment Carry-On Bag is the only bag you need for short trips. The 45L bag is made from either ATY nylon or a waxed, cotton-like Kodra with triple PU-coated Kodra at the base for a leather look that doubles as added protection from the elements. It also has a YKK zip that allows for full access to the main compartment, the requisite padded laptop/tablet compartment, an internal water-resistant pocket for toiletries, and external magazine and document pockets. And since everyone schleps their luggage around differently, it can quickly go from a duffel bag to a shoulder bag or backpack, making it as versatile as it is practical.
Forget carrying a different bag for every task — Black Ember Backpacks use a modular design to adapt to nearly any situation. Available in three sizes ranging from 15 to 25 liters, they use a unique mag-lock hardware system to let you add additional cases and pouches on an as-needed basis. They're also plenty rugged, with waterproof nylon exteriors, aluminum hardware, and weatherproof zippers, yet keep your gadgets safe with soft linings and extra padding for laptops and tablets.

A metal hook offers ease of access when you arrive at your destination, and the entire kit rolls up for stowing away in your luggage.
