A Short Film By Topo Designs

October 23rd, 2014 in In The MediaNo Comments

Topo Designs

Colorado brand, Topo Designs recently released a beautifully shot short film directed, filmed and edited by artists, Matt Shaw and Ry and Drew Cox.

About an hour outside of Nashville, TN lies a gorgeous stretch of river winding through quiet woods and farmlands where thick fog and “river smoke” roll in before dawn, setting an eerily beautiful backdrop for hours of great fly fishing.
Matt and the Cox Brothers were itching to collaborate on a film and when Matt shared a photo he’d snapped while out fishing, they knew they had found the subject for their first collaboration. Up before the sun they headed off to wade into this otherworldly scene with fly rods and cameras in hand.

Check out the short film by Topo Designs below.

JanSport Houston Backpack Review

October 8th, 2014 in Product ReviewsNo Comments

The JanSport Houston Backpack is a handsomely crafted bag designed for your everyday needs. Featuring an internal padded laptop compartment and tablet compartment, JanSport’s Houston Backpack offers a considerable amount of functionality topped off with an attractive heritage aesthetic. 

Since its inception in 1967, JanSport has remained a reliable and trustworthy, go-to brand. Their unwavering commitment to enduring style and uncompromised quality is evident throughout their impeccable range of products.

Our very own Rushfaster photo and video ninja, Ed Cheng recently wrote a great review outlining his experience with the JanSport Houston Backpack.

Thanks for the fantastic review, Ed. Your JanSport Houston Backpack is looking pretty fine! – The Rushfaster Team.

Jansport Houston Backpack

THE PACK

Working at Rushfaster, you slowly develop an eye for the best products out on the market. JanSport is well known as one of the original backpack brands. They’re known to be well made and use quality materials in all of their products.

Jansport Houston Backpack

The JanSport Houston backpack lives up to the brand’s name. The Houston comes in a wide range of colours and patterns; the pack featured here is the ‘Desert Beige’. Picking up the Houston, I find it to be quite light – considering the premium cotton canvas fabric that’s used for the bag. The premium faux leather bottom and trim details are a nice touch. I use the bag on campus and as a regular on-the-go backpack.

FEATURES

When you consider all the backpacks out there that have a similar look to the Houston, you’ll think of “simple, typical college backpack, carries books – does all you need it to do”. The backpack exhibits the same look and feel of a heritage campus backpack but you’ll find the Houston is very deceptive in its look. It features various pockets for easy access and to separate your various items: sunglasses, tissues, keys, snacks, things like that – just to keep you organized on-the-go.

Jansport Houston Backpack

The Houston’s 26L main compartment is quite spacious and features a padded sleeve for up to a 15” laptop, (I reckon it could fit a 17 laptop) and a nice tricot lined sleeve for your tablet. The zipper loops are a handy feature; makes it extra easy to get to my stuff in a rush. The Houston is pretty comfortable to wear; it’s fully padded and fully adjustable. Being a college student myself – the comfort helps on those longs days on campus with my laptop, textbooks and binder. Might seem like a small thing but it does make the difference.

Jansport Houston Backpack

CONS

Although the cotton canvas material is strong and durable, it’s not as waterproof as I’d like it to be – considering the things the gadgets I could be carrying in it. And although the premium leather bottom is a nice touch and extremely soft, it doesn’t have sufficient padding for my laptop. So when I put my bag down, I have to put a conscious effort to make sure I don’t impact my laptop in the process.

Jansport Houston Backpack

SUMMARY

The Houston is a fine backpack. Versatile, but ideal for the student. Simple, campus aesthetic, but packs a punch in feature practicality. If you like your bag to have that simple, college look but want it slightly pimped out in features and organisation – this is a bag for you.
