A collaboration between The Hill-Side, a clothing and accessories brand founded in Brookyn, and Woorich, the Original Outdoor Clothing Company, has resulted in the must-have bags for fall.

The new lineup includes a daypack, tote bag, backpack, briefcase, and weekender bag—all built tough and ready to handle your active lifestyle.

Emil and Sandy Corsillo are the two brothers who founded Hill-Side in 2009. They said teaming their products with Woolrich is a good match because “Woolrich is synonymous with quality design and construction,” said Emil. He says New York City commuters inspired the new collection of bags.

“The toughest commuters in the world are found in New York,” he said. “When you’re commuting in the city, you need a bag that is versatile and tough; and all of your essentials need to integrate seamlessly and effortlessly.”

Of course, you don’t have to live in New York to appreciate the benefits of these bags. They are universal in appeal.

Here’s a quick look at the new products:

The Hill-Side for Woolrich Daypack, $95

Classic teardrop-shaped pack crafted out of a heavyweight polyester canvas. There’s an easy-access front-zippered pocket with a waterproof zipper. The handles and straps are made out of herringbone-weave nylon—strong and fray-resistant. The adjustable backpack straps allow for a comfortable fit. Plus, whatever you put inside will stay dry. The padded laptop sleeve can hold a laptop up to 13” or a tablet.

You’ll love the roominess of this bag. You can toss in your lunch and change of clothes, as well as securely store your laptop. It has the same durability of the daypack, but is larger with two-zipped interior back wall pockets, three interior neoprene slip pockets, and a full-width slip pocket with Velcro-tabbed closure.

This backpack is tough and ready to hold enough gear to last through a weekend on the trail. There are pockets and slots for water bottles and umbrellas, waterproof zippers, interior pockets, padded mesh back panel and shoulder straps, and side cinch closures to minimize bulk.

The main compartment expands, so there’s room for everything you want to fit inside. There’s also a padded sleeve to keep your laptop safe, nylon herringbone handles with snap-closure handle wrap, and compression straps that cinch the bag when not fully packed.

The best places to buy vintage t-shirts: Our top picks
Rep your favorite fandom with these tees
Man in Levis tee


The best men's clothing will always be full of divisive ideas. As we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, stylish, or masculine, certain items in your closet or drawer will cause backlash for some and praise from others. However, one item will transcend this argument (while simultaneously being the most hotly debated part of it) mostly because it sparks something nothing else in men's fashion does: nostalgic conversation. T-shirts may always walk the line between beloved casual and home wear, but vintage t-shirts find a way to transport us back to a time when the world felt simpler.

NFL’s Kirk Cousins reveals his secrets for the ideal boating day on the lake
The perfect boat and the perfect hat for the NFL QB
Kirk Cousins driving a boat

Nothing beats a day on the lake. Or the ocean. Or even the pool. But not every day on the lake is the same, and some of those moments on the water call for more than just a summer set or a great summer look. Being by the water is nothing compared to being on the water, feeling the waves and basking in the sun where the closest person is sitting on dry land.
That's where Manitou comes in, with its mission to get people off the sand and spend their time getting wet. And no one is better to help Manitou get people out on Lake Michigan better than hometown hero Kirk Cousins, who teamed up with the brand to bring a new twist on the pontoon boat.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the NFL quarterback to ask him questions about the boats, his day on the lake, and even a little football. When he's not leading a team with his arm, he's spending time with his family on the water, and he gave us a peek into his ideal day on the lake, and one of the items he always wears.

Why Manitou?

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
