First off Red Bull is in my oppinion the best tasting of all the energy drinks. What also amazes me is what Red Bull is doing for almost every sport out there. Basically what it comes down to is the simple, Red Bull is one of the best marketing / PR companies in the world. They can take any sport and make it have mass appreall. Here is a great example.

There are a few companies out there that in my opinion can pretty much do no wrong. Brooks England is one of those companies for me. Just this morning I was taking a look at the Cool Hunting blog and stumbled on the Islington Rucksack. For me this is something that fits so many areas for me. It just looks sexy, and it is fairly large at 33l. Past that just the fact that it is a backpack really excites me. On top of that they add a system were you can cross the shoulder straps across your chest for even better stability. At around $260 I will agree it is very pricey, but as a Brooks product you know it will last a whole lot longer than you will.
