Take Me With You

From the urban jungle to far-flung corners of the planet, the Half Moon Weekender Bag from local company Fishpond is a multi-functional carry-on dream. It can accommodate several days of clothing and organize your gear, plus it’s just so ruggedly handsome. “We rarely embark on an adventure without our Half Moon Bag, from a quick jaunt up to the mountains to a long weekend across the country. At this point, it’s just another companion to some of our best memories, and it shows. Over time, the lines and markings on the organic, waxed canvas exterior serve as a reminder of journeys-past.” — Jack Reis, Director of Marketing. $200 at Orvis, 8465 Park Meadows Center Dr., 303.768.9600;
