Tüb People – Gear Review

Share

In the last few weeks and extensive amount of travel I have been able to truly field test a few products that were recently sent to me to test out. Tüb People is a New York City transplant business now located here in Utah. I had a chance to meet with the owner and was fascinated by the upstream company, which takes used and discarded tire tubes and repurposes them into rad wallets, and bags. I have had the chance to try out their two wallets, as well as their computer bag.

 

City Bag

From the website:

1382069289_5“Naturally water resistant inner tübs and a colorful liner give you a bag that is all business on the outside, and a party on the inside.

The City Bag holds a 13″ laptop in a padded sleeve, has two zippered pockets, two large slip-in pockets, and a carabineer for easy access to your keys. A padded adjustable shoulder strap lets you carry your load comfortably.

No two City Bags are exactly alike. Each is an original!”

In the Field:

This has become my goto travel bag for my computer and even through I have a 15″ laptop I can still fit it in the bag. It has currently traveled across the US and all over Mexico. The nice part about this bag is it’s ease to look good while bring drug through harsh conditions. It’s super easy to wipe off mud, dust or whatever else gets picked up at the airport or in transport. Although not fully waterproof it does a good job repelling water. The pockets on the inside are great and it’s been a perfect, stylish companion on my travels. It fits all my work and my computer all in one place.

Retail Price: $84.00

 

Simple Wallet

From the Website: 

1382069957_3“The Simple Wallet is streamlined for everyday use. Alternatively, it could be used for a night out, or dedicated to business cards.

Fits up to 10 credit cards and the bill strap is snug to hold all of your cash.

No two Simple Wallets are exactly alike. Each is an original!”

 

In the Field:

1382069956_2This sleek wallet is perfect for travel. It holds a few bills and cards. For my recent trip to Mexico I was in a town that doesn’t take credit cards and didn’t need to carry around much so I opted just to carry this around with some cash in it. It was nice to be able to carry something light, the only downside to an open wallet being in a country have uses a lot of coins I had coins in my pocket floating around. But as a running wallet it’s the perfect companion.

Retail Price: $12.00

 

Castanza Wallet

From the Website:

1382069822_1“The Castanza Wallet is smooth and sleek. It slides in/out of your pocket easily. With 6 card pockets and a wide pocket for cash you’ll have everything you need on hand.

No two Castanza Wallets are exactly alike. Each is an original!”

 

In the Field:

This is definitely a most masculine wallet out of all the products that I tested. It was the perfect wallet for my boyfriend and he really was attached to the design. Especially as a former bike racer. For me as a female it was more than I wanted to carry and I really gravitated to the slimmer wallet. It is constructed well and fits a far amount of cards and cash without being too bulky. Again it’s great for the all weather adventurer who might find themselves in any element.

    • Made it to Atlanta to cover World’s Toughest Mudder. Every year I get nostalgic about the first year of WTM in 2011.
.
Can’t wait to cover the action for @mudrunguide. With the temps predicted in the 30’s overnight I excited to see how the new venue plays out.
.
Excited to get to work tomorrow.

    • How many times as a kid did someone tell you to “take a deep breath” - if you are like me, a lot.
.
Breathing is essential to life and yet so much of the time we don’t breathe deeply. A couple years ago I did the @iceman_hof method course, documenting the journey.
.
Above the cold training and pushups the greatest gift after the course was a renewed focus on breathing and deep breaths.
.
Yet years later it’s so easy to forget. These days when stress levels are high or I have too much on my mind, I head out into nature and breathe.
.
Whether it’s getting my heart pounding on a run or slowing it down and focusing on deep breaths. It’s a simple and free self care technique that pays you back 10x.
.
When was the last time you truly took a deep breath?

    • Did you catch the new episode with @runningrosie released yesterday?
.
We had a raw, unfiltered conversation about motherhood, childbirth, body image, balance, competition, being a professional athlete, and life. Sounds heavy but as always we laughed along the way.
.
It was great having her back on the podcast 109 episodes after her first go around. If you missed the first time on the podcast talking about her childhood, check out episode 25.

    • Fall means leaves changing, colder days, and the pond currently looks like a tea but makes some great reflections on a sunny day.
.
Sometimes there just isn’t time to get to the mountains but it doesn’t mean you can spend some time outside doing backyard chores.

    • Friends come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. One thing I’ve learned throughout the years is whether a friend is a next door neighbor you see everyday or someone you see once a year, it’s important to find those who have you back.

Sefra @puddyrara and I met in the woods of Vermont during the Peak 500. Little did I know the adventures we would embark on.
.
From the volcanos 🌋 of Nicaragua to Showing up during WTM in Vegas, stopping for an overnight in SLC, or outside Miami for a 24-hour BattleFrog (RIP). Or like this picture in Tahoe for the @spartan world championships.
.
I literally never know where in the world I will see her but I know we will have deep conversations about plants, seeds, life, spirit, and generally freak out everyone as they mostly have no idea what we are talking about.
.
Friends don’t have to be people you talk to or see daily. They just need to be your ally and have your back in a jam.
.
I’m lucky and blessed to be part of the slingshot mafia with this lady.
.
Blessing Sefra! Also I have no idea why this picture is so funny but it is to me.

    • One jar of trash a year for a family of four!
.
Sounds impossible at first but Bea Johnson of @zerowastehome is on the podcast to talk about how it’s not that hard. In fact Bea talks about how it frees up so many other aspects of life. So you can spend more time and money doing the thing you want while producing less waste in the world 🌎!
.
Do you think you could live in a zero-waste home?
