Randolph Engineering Concorde Sunglasses

The shades you want shielding your eyes this summer have a little more history than you might think. Started in 1972 by two Polish immigrants, Randolph Engineering quickly grew from a parts & machinery supplier feeding the thriving U.S. optical manufacturing industry to the military’s prime sunglasses contractor in just a decade. The shades exploded onto the commercial market in the years thereafter, and the quality of a pair of Randolph Engineering Sunglasses — made in the U.S.A — still make them an option for military members today. The fashion-forward yet classic Concorde Flash Lens series combines sharp looks and durability with an attractive price — everything you could want from a pair of specs in one stylish package.

Learn more at Randolph Engineering or Amazon – $170

Chamber Multitool

Small enough to slip into a pocket or saddle bag yet packed with 13 functions, Fabric’s Chamber Multitool covers all the screwdrivers and bits you’d need to adjust or add/remove just about anything on your bike. Chamber’s cap comes in either ratcheting or fixed designs and unscrews to reveal a variety of bits, Torx, flathead, and Phillips screwdrivers. The canister itself is also big enough to double as a hefty grip while working, making this multitool as functional as it is compact.

Black Kite Cycling Backpack

Messenger bags facilitate access to their contents, but if we could choose we’d go for two straps — the load distribution is way better that way. The Black Kite Cycling Backpack simplifies access to your stuff thanks to both an open back pocket (think cycling jersey) for your phone, wallet, and other small goods as well as a side zipper pocket for quickly grabbing your lock (or whatever else you load in it) without ever having to take it off. Empty, the 16 litre pack weighs in at a scant 1 pound and yet still holds what you’d want to carry for the day, including a laptop, shoes, a packable jacket, and more, all kept close to your back for better riding. Else, its 1050 denier ballistic nylon fabric is durable and DWR-coated for a long lasting bag that’ll admirably protect the stuff you put inside of it.

Check it out at Kickstarter – $98
