California-based lifestyle brand Nixon just released a bag collection as cool as their watches. The H2ohYeah! five bags that make up the group are made from REPREVE Our Ocean fabric. That fabric is created from ocean-bound plastic bottles, and at least 20 bottles are used to create each bag.
This new line of eco-friendly bags contains everything from a six-pack carrier to large duffel bags. Each bag is sharply styled with pockets, details and zippers that can withstand anything. Whether you’re looking for a new commuter bag, a gym bag or something for a long trek, Nixon’s bags have lots of options.
1. Nixon Bandit Chest Bag
Instead of an awkwardly angled waist bag tossed over a shoulder, this Nixon bag is comfortable and easy to wear whether you’re skating, biking or walking. It has a tri-strap design that keeps the bag stable no matter what you’re doing. The bag has a front zippered compartment, a top zipper and has a breathable mesh overlaid back panel. It comes in black, olive-dot camo, black/ blue and a red print (shown)
2. Nixon Heist LG Tote
BEST FOR CARRYING ALMOST EVERYTHING
The Heist LG Tote was inspired by military helmet bags. The style later became popular in Japan, and the sleek utilitarian-styled bag is on-point for fall’s fashion trends. It has a huge 29L main zippered compartment, interior slip pockets and a key ring, so no more hunting for your house keys. It boasts pleated front zippered pockets that can hold a wallet, passport, and other necessities. It has adjustable handles and a removable shoulder strap. It comes in black, olive-dot camo and black/blue.
3. Nixon Wizard Stick Beverage Sling
BEST FOR THIRSTY GUYS
The Wizard Stick Beverage Sling is perfect to take to the beach or backyard barbecue. The long, slim compartment is insulated and closes with a sturdy YKK zipper. It can hold six 12-ounce cans, and the cross-body strap is adjustable. It’s the type of bag you can use all year long as it makes ferrying libations much easier. Buy it in black or olive-dot camo.
4. Nixon The Escape Convertible Duffel Series
BEST FOR TRAVEL
The Escape Convertible Duffel Series is a new take on the convertible duffle bag. Utilizing the most popular features, they re-created or should we say, made the duffel bag better, cooler and stronger. For example, the bags have a rectangular zipper and a soft, rectangular shape. These two features make it easier to pack and easier to retrieve those goodies. Each bag in the series has compression straps, making them easy to stow in overhead or underfoot compartments. These bags also have backpack straps (yay!) and exterior handles, so carrying or wearing is much more comfortable than a regular duffel bag. The exterior straps can hold anything from a yoga mat to a skateboard or any large item that won’t fit inside. The duffel also has an outside zippered compartment and interior pockets.
The Escape 35L can be used as a small weekender or gym bag. The two other duffel bags, the Escape 45L and Escape 60L can be used for longer trips. The duffels come in olive-dot camo, black and black/blue.
5. Nixon Hauler Backpack Series
BEST FOR EVERYTHING
The Hauler backpack series is a great option for backpack lovers and travelers. It looks like a modern, sleek top-loading backpack, but the well-thought-out design has a unique 270-degree zipper making it easy to access everything in the bag, not just the items on top. It comes in two sizes: the 25L, perfect for commuting or overnights, and the bigger 35L, which has an interior zippered shoe compartment that is great for long trips.
The backpacks also have external straps so you can strap on a yoga mat or anything else that’s unwieldy. At present, the 25L is available, and the 35L will be available for purchase shortly. The 25L comes in black, olive-camo and burgundy. The 35L comes in black or olive-dot camo.
