Refill your canteen and apply some sunblock: Rachel Comey's buzzed-about collection of hiking accessories hits store this week, and it's good enough to turn even the most tenacious of urban dwellers into backpack lovers and bonafide outdoorswomen.
Even if your "Great Outdoors" experience consists hot dogs and sunbathing in Central Park, you'll be prepared for whatever mother nature has in store with Comey's range of bright patterned backpacks and "utility clutches," which are basically silk/cotton satchels with detachable straps. Available in everything from python to a trippy psychedelic paisley, there's a quirky print for every fashionable trail blazer.
Cyclists and students are sure to love a chic new backpack option that doesn't feature even an inch of "gortex." We're loving the barbell-print satchel and blue-dot backpack, which would surely fend off any approaching wildlife if waived over the head -- or at least subway creeps.
