A note from the VP of Branding and Design on the Essentials category:
I was recently asked where and how we came up with the concept for the Adrenaline Essentials. Let me be the first to tell you, this is not some new idea that we came up with in the barn. I am constantly on music, fashion, and lifestlye blogs and most of them have a form of Essentials if not literally an Essentials portion. Go Google blog and Essentials and you’ll see what I mean. The blog that does it the best, in my opinion, is http://hypebeast.com/tags/essentials Was Hypebeast the first to do it? Of course not, they just do it better than anyone else. Hypebeast highlights influencers of diverse backgrounds and the variety of things each subject finds “essential” is always really interesting to me. We all subconsciously have this list of things we find essential and there is no better way to get insight on someone than seeing what’s in their travel bag. I figured, the Adrenaline athletes travel more than most people, so let’s dig in and take a look. Xander Ritz and Eric Krum are two guys I know pretty well, obviously, but I still learned a little about each of them.
Take some time to consider what’s essential to you. It’s a pretty fun exercise and makes you think about what matters and what doesn’t. Share with us, we like to see what you athletes value out there!
Max Ritz and Peter Baum are next up to have their bags raided, stay tuned. Tell us who else’s bag we should take a peak in!
