Offering a host of merchandise useful for city-dwellers, Urbanize could very well be our BFF when it comes to being equipped for an urban existence. From gadgets like headphones to tools like pliers and even anti-theft equipment, it's basically a one-stop shop for our urban lifestyle needs.
Urbanize has just opened its second store in the fifth level of Shangri-La Mall, and we're wishing they would open more soon. Call us tamad, but we really dislike visiting many stores just to get all—altogether now—"urbanized!" Naks!
And it's not just about convenience. The quality of products found in this store is also worth noting. We're talking top-notch lifestyle bags and casing brands such as Otterbox, Thule, and Pacsafe. But there's one's product line that really caught our eye: man bags. Why so? Let's just say we want to look sleek and macho while hauling our things, and these certainly have the looks and functionality to do the trick.
Scroll down for our picks of the best from the lot!
