magpul-dakapouch

We carry more gear and accessories all the time, much of it smallish items that we want to keep organized and protected from the elements. For this, the Magpul DAKA Pouch is worth a look. Made from polymer infused textiles with an anti-slip texture that are impenetrably welded on all seams and using a genuine [...]

new-pandq

I received news from Brian Holmes of Pad & Quill that they have two new "slim leather bags for the modern gentleman". When I read the title of his email and then saw the images of his bags, I was a little miffed because I don't see how these bags are for men only. ;) [...]

trustbag

Got trust issues? With people stealing your stuff when you're out and about, that is? I think we all do, to varying degrees. To assuage this tendency and actually keep our valuables safer, TrustBag might be just the product. While in appearance it looks to the casual observer to be a simple drawstring gym bag [...]

Alpine-Backpack-Review-01

Bags, bags, and more bags!  I love a good bag to carry all of my EDC (Every Day Carry) gear. The Alpine Division McKenzie backpack is inspired by a 70's rucksack with its leather lashing squares and nylon material, but with a modern pop of color and style. When I saw the Alpine Division McKenzie backpack in [...]

ToffeeCentennial - 1

Carrying things around has certainly changed in the last few years. Knapsacks used to be for school books or camping equipment. People in the work world carried briefcases. Then, suddenly, laptops happened, and slowly, the knapsack/backpack became ubiquitous. I've carried them off and on for years, for work and for pleasure. Toffee (spelled with reversed [...]

I’ve been procrastinating writing my review of the MIUCOLOR Trunk Organizer, waiting for a “really big” shopping trip to load it up and get a picture. I thought a “really big” trip would be the true test of the trunk organizer. However, this summer has been so busy I haven’t had any really big trips. [...]

BrenthavenMedina - 1

A few weeks back, I reviewed the Collins vertical iPad/laptop bag from Brenthaven that I'd bought a while back for my iPad Air 2. I was looking for a similar bag for my iPad Pro. They now make one in that size, but I was hesitant. The two things I had mentioned that I would [...]

saddleback-ugly

Saddleback Leather Company has just announced a new line of their very popular rugged premium leather bags. They are calling it the Ugly & Limited line, but I disagree with the ugly part. These bags are made with the same quality materials and craftsmanship as Saddleback's other bags, but they feature leather with cattle brands, [...]

standard-backpack-3

Over Memorial Day weekend, I went on a trip to visit the in-laws, and thought it would be a perfect chance to try out some new luggage. This time, however, I wanted to forego checking a bag and rely solely on carry-on luggage for a week long trip. Standard Luggage Co. offered their carry-on backpack to [...]

barracuda

I can't help but hear Heart's Barracuda song whenever I look at this bag. That's not a bad thing though because that's a cool song and this is a cool carry-on bag. On paper, the Barracuda Smart Collapsible carry-on bag has all the features that seasoned travelers want. To start with, it has ample room [...]

BrenthavenCollins2

Hello, my name is Smythe, and I'm a bag-a-holic. I know I've come to the right group, because you all have far more bags than you can use in a month, don't you? Well, my current bag habit has brought me a bag from veteran bag makers Brenthaven, in their Collins line of messenger bags. [...]

1 MOS pack plugged in

I'm pretty much a minimalist, grateful for pockets so I don't have to carry a bag every day. But for the last month, I've been using the MOS Charging Backpack. Have I become a convert to having it with me always? It is especially targeted to travelers with multiple devices. Will I use it next [...]

padquill-thebriefcase-1

It's no secret that I go on trips a lot. From IP cameras to watch my cats, to backpacks for the plane, I love to use items that make life easier when I am away. When I was given a chance to review The Briefcase by Pad and Quill, I thought it might make a [...]
