This weekend I stumbled onto a showing of the first Indiana Jones movie and immediately cancelled all plans in order to spend the afternoon following one of my cinematic heroes on his quest. I have a love for these movies (except for the last one that, much like the third Godfather and all the new Star Wars movies, I enjoy pretending does not exist) since my father rented them when I was young. And it’s full of things to love: history, mythology, action, Harrison Ford and one really awesome hat.
Now that I’ve begun my own journey into the promotional products industry, I found myself taking a closer look at Indy’s gear. After all you have an entire generation that grew up idolizing Indiana Jones and what better way to give a nod towards youth than by adding some Indy inspired gear to your everyday.
First there’s the Americana Leather-Wrapped Journal. Aside from the iconic hat, Doctor Jones kept a journal nearby to scribble notes and drawings of his adventures or reading through his father’s journal for clues. This full grain, leather bound journal is great for the adventuring archeologist in all of us- even if you are just taking notes on the Monday morning meeting.
For carrying all your gear, be it for office or adventure, I suggest the Field & Co. Rucksack Backpack. It has a sturdy vintage vibe that will last until your backpack looks as comfortably weathered and broken in as Indy’s do.
And for the moment after you’ve survived a pit of snakes, metaphorical or not, there’s the Zippo 8 oz. Hip Flask.
Whether you give them away as a bundle or individually, any of these items would be great for premium giveaways for movie fans or mysterious archeology professors. Grab your hat, throw your journal into your pack, and get ready for an adventure.
