Fjällräven Bergtagen 30 Backpack

Minimalistic and lightweight yet still immensely durable, Fjällräven’s Bergtagen 30 Backpack is a streamlined take on a mountaineering pack that was designed for more arduous and technical routes and trails.

Nike Air Max 90 Orange Camo

Famously penned by legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield, the Air Max 90 represented Nike’s second flagship shoe model, and though the pair was released in 1990 — as its name suggests — the model has seen a major resurgence in popularity in recent years, leading to new and unique variants such as the “Orange Camo” version seen here.
