Today in Gear: Dockers’ answer to #bendgate, new motorcycle gear from Velomacchi, Edge of Tomorrow and more.



Velomacchi Motorcycle Gear
Designed for the rider who’s not afraid to wrench on his own wheels, this all-new Roll Top Backpack from Velomacchi is a sleek and stylish solution to keeping things shiny side up. Constructed with premium materials like 1000D Cordura, 1680D Ballistics nylon and airframe-grade aluminum, the Velomacchi Backpack is also completely waterproof. Best of all, it has no trailing straps and is ergonomically shaped for life in the saddle, regardless of your choice in gear. velomacchi.com

Chrome Warm Vest
For those ballsy enough to bike through the winter, heavy-duty winter wear is essential. Chrome’s Warm Vest is light, durable, and insulated thanks to its synthetic poly fill and diamond-quilted nylon shell. Its reversible orange and gray color scheme provides options for both road visibility and style; if you don’t want to rock the Marty McFly when you’ve reached your destination, it folds up into a small stuff sack.$120

At any rate, Dockers have proposed a solution with their new On the Go Khakis, which feature a special smartphone pocket midway along the thigh, along with classic Dockers features like moisture-wicking fabric and a comfort fabric waistband. $40+

Blackout Buddy H2O
This compact light is the new coolest thing in your survival kit. Water activation means no batteries are required; simply dunk it in a small cup of water (once a day) and it churns out continuous illumination. And unlike other lights on the market, it’s power module is free of harmful compounds like mercury and lead, garnering it the environmentalist’s stamp of approval as well. $10

HRE Classic Line Wheels
Designed for high-performance GTs and sedans, the Classic Series wheels from HRE bring race quality to the consumer market. In a sleek and polished aesthetic, they enhance braking, acceleration, and handling, and come in a variety of different sizes — 18″, 19”, 20”, 21” and 22”. hrewheels.com

The apocalyptic take on time-travel starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt is available for pre-order release in a triple-decked combo pack. Included in the bundle are Blu-ray, DVD, and HD Ultraviolet versions of the summer blockbuster for whatever kind of viewing your current system sanctions. And there’s no risk of lending one out to the friend who’s been stealing your collection away for his home library. $20
