patagonia travel bags and DIY shoes

Patagonia's new line of Lightweight Travel bags ($50.00-$70.00, patagonia.com) includes a Tote, Courier (messenger bag), and Pack (shown left), all made from 30-denier triple-ripstop silicone nylon. The fabric allows the bags to be extremely lightweight yet still incredibly durable; the three weigh less than 11.5 oz each, with the Courier coming in at a svelte 7 oz. Each pack can stuff into its own pocket when not needed, making them perfect for travel. The Pack can also convert to a stuff sack. Talk about useful.

Patagonia has also introduced a new do-it-yourself shoe ($30.00, patagonia.com) that comes sold as a kit, aptly named the DIY. According to the company:

Our DIY shoe is somewhat reminiscent of the moccasin kits we all had as kids, but it's made from leather scraps left on the floor of manufacturing facilities. Distinctive and easy-to-assemble (about one hour per shoe) and requiring no glue or tools, DIY shoes provide both maximum comfort and ample opportunity for personal expression.

Customizable, recycled, and cheap. Cool.

I have been sweating that backpack in black or neon yellow for months. Not too sure about the shoes though.

I wouldn't wear the shoes either, but I still think they're cool.
