Alex from Buck Products was kind enough to hand make a rucksack for me to test out. He's making these things by himself here in the USA in Montana.... very cool. It's great to see folks making a go on their own with these small scale manufacturing operations and home made DIY mentalities. So many products are simply disposable these days... I believe the future is a return to high quality products that will last a lifetime... and hopefully drive improvement and sustainability in the creation of those products. Check out Alex's bags here.
Our friends the Mattson 2 have released their anticipated new album "Feeling Hands" on the Galaxia Platform. It's a great album and is already under heavy rotation... download it here. During our trip to Maui, a few of us threw down a beach blanket under the stars and listened to these guys knocking back a few beers.... it was one of the best nights of the trip.
