Nixon are perhaps best known in the rock world for their range of Metallica branded watches - a partnership that stretches back to 2010. But now music fans have got something else to be excited about, as Nixon have unveiled their new range of Grateful Dead merchandise.

The range of backpacks, bags and watch straps have been made from recycled ocean plastic and feature the Grateful Dead phrase “We are everywhere” and come in a psychedelic sound wave pattern.

The items including the Grateful Dead Bandit Bag, Grateful Dead Stash Bag and Grateful Dead Wizard Stick (which can hold up to six cans of your favourite beverage) join Nixon’s range of Grateful Dead watches and everything can be ordered direct from the Nixon website (opens in new tab) and are available on both sides of the Atlantic.
