When you meet up with Raan, one of the first thing you notice is the briefcase. Handsomely scuffed up, the briefcase not Raan, it's a stand out. You may remember The briefcase breaking here first, some time ago. Well, it's available for pre-order now at Apolis (already sold out at Context, but they should hopefully see a second shipment) shipped with a bound owners manual and several surprise accessories not even I know about. Made of a slightly lighter than normal 17 1/2 oz. Ugandan canvas, sourced through their partnership with Invisible Children, this black beaut is a future heirloom.
