patchPALS

I'm a big fan of rucks (AKA backpacks), bags, pouches and other gear that utilizes webbing for customized, modular attachment. And since I'm also a big fan of Velcro-backed morale patches, PatchPALS by RuckWorks caught my eye. Elegant in its simplicity but clever in its function, it's basically a strip of Velcro with four wing-like tabs [...]

toffee-mini-leather-bag-1

When you don't always need to carry a laptop and don't even always need to take a tablet, it can be hard to find a single gear bag that works for you every day.  I almost never need a laptop with me, but I often want to take along my iPad Air 2, so I'm [...]

baggizmo

The folks who created the Baggizmo (and its Kickstarter project) want you to think about how you look when dressed nicely for a meeting with your client, and then replace that polished image with how you look for that meeting after you loaded up your pants and jacket pockets with all your daily-carry gear.  Ladislav [...]

CaseLogicIbira7

Recently, I moved back to having a MacBookPro again. I had moved to an iMac, since most of my mobile stuff was being done on the iPad. Then work got me a second iMac for a lab/testing machine, and my desk got too crowded. But, of course, that means I now "have" to have a [...]

ColLittleton_no2shavekit-1

I travel a great deal for work and pleasure (aka when my wife drags me on vacation). Much of that time away from home spans more that just a few days and is usually pretty hectic. So, remembering everything and staying organized is critical for making the time away from home go smoothly and stress-free. [...]

ECBC-Hercules-1

Backpacks are handy when traveling. They allow you to carry things on your back, leaving your hands free to pull other luggage. Better still, the TSA or security checkpoint friendly backpacks make getting through security with your laptop and other devices quick and painless (relatively speaking). With these backpacks, the laptop portion opens so that [...]

Genius_Pack - 9

Have you ever stood at the baggage conveyor after a flight and wondered which black rolling bag was yours? I sure have. 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 [...]

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 [...]
