By | October 8th, 2017|Reviews|

Once upon a time I reviewed the Arcido Novaya backpack, and I loved it.  I loved the whole idea of it i.e. a backpack for weekend breaks.  Now step up it's successor, the Arcido Faroe, a shiny new backpack which, takes all the best bits of the Novaya, but streamlines them. The result as you'll see in the [...]

Sungod Custom Classics – Review

By | May 30th, 2017|Reviews, Travel|

Well the snow is gone.  As summer approaches, my new Sungod Custom Revolts snowboarding goggles are now well and truly packed away under the bed.  Hibernating until winter rolls around again.  Lucky for me though the guys at Sungod actually started out with producing sunglasses.  Hello summer, hello my (also) new Sungod Customer Classics².

By | February 23rd, 2017|Reviews, Snowboarding|

Sungod Revolts are a bit of a game changer.  Ski goggles (or snowboard goggles in my case), which are affordable, stylish, customisable and most importantly, outstanding quality. In short, #lifelooksbetter when you're wearing a pair of Sungod Revolts. “SunGod Revolts were born from a frustration with over-priced, under-performing goggles. From our experience with sunglasses we knew [...]

The Arcido Novaya – a backpack for the intelligent traveller

By | May 25th, 2016|Reviews|

The Arcido Novaya, the piece of hand luggage I've been searching for for a long while! This stylish case, while aesthetically pleasing, is essentially a no frills number in that it does not bother with wheels or extendable handles. Instead of those unnecessary (in my opinion) features, the Novaya simply offers you more space of [...]

The Jurni is a new carry-on style suitcase designed for the next generation of young (and older, like me) travellers.
