We have half a dozen in the attic in various sizes and weights, so when our Benevolent Gadgeteer Overlord offered the Genius Pack, I wondered if it might somehow be different. I had [...]

gocase-compact-01

The GoPro is a popular action camera, but I've found it's got so many accessories, it sometimes needs a little help keeping things organized.  I think I have parts scattered in at least three boxes, which is pretty inconvenient.  GOcase has a solution for that. The packaging says "H3-Case" but the website calls this the [...]

It features two built-in marine [...]

Henty Tube Backpack Review

Hentytube

Those that have read my previous bag posts will realize that my main love of bags centres around messenger style bags.  That was until I started bike riding.  While a messenger is fine for short-haul commutes, for me they're not stable or ergonomic enough for much longer rides.  As my fitness increases I find myself [...]

ameribag-hbbevo-bag-1

I work from home, so I don't use a laptop bag or large gear bag every day.  However, I do like to take my iPad with me when I go to an appointment, and sometimes I may even want to take my 11" MacBook Air.  I don't want to have to change bags every time [...]

Nendo Kame

A decent set of luggage is almost paramount these days when doing extensive or long travel. While polycarbonate luggage is usually a little more durable and lighter, it often only comes in a clam shell design (basically the suitcase zippers down the middle and opens with two equal size sides). Fabric luggage usually has a [...]

Although I carry gear, I don't carry a typical gear bag.  I don't go to an office, so I don't need a bag big enough to hold a laptop and other job necessities.  I just need a bag big enough to carry what I'll need while I'm out.  I have some bags big enough to [...]
