Seems as if there's wanderlust in the air. In the spirit of travel and adventure, Global Citizen Raan Parton, of Apolis, is heading out on what sounds like one hell of an epic field trip(next time, fellas).
Motorcycling through the Vietnamese country side on old Russian Minsk bikes, Raan will be working on some product development, field testing some recently released Apolis Transit Issue gear(the Expedition Duffel being a standout and perfect carry-all for such a trip), documenting the modern face of Vietnam and, along the way, having a hell of a time.
According to the brothers Parton, "we will be field testing an assortment of our autumn collection and putting the finishing touches on two upcoming items for our Transit Issue category. The journey will document modern Vietnam, including Vietnamese cottage and commercial industries and cultural landmarks, as well as the country’s inhabitants. This trip will be regularly broadcasted on the Apolis journal, and upon return, we will be releasing a film to showcase the entirety of the journey."
Have a look at what Raan's packing, and stay tuned to both Secret Forts and The Apolis Journal for continuing dispatches from Vietnam.
