Bags

tuo-tuo-1

I love traveling with my family, but detest packing for a stay away from home. I like having everything neat and orderly; unfortunately, packing a suitcase is akin to solving a Rubik's cube for me. Even if I manage to pack everything away nice and neat, my suitcase usually is a disaster by the time I [...]

peakdesign-messenger

Messenger bags are my favorite style of bags because they are casual, don't fall over when you set them on a flat surface and can hold all my gear with room to spare. Thousands of other people must also like messenger bags because Peak Design's Everyday Messenger Bag Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $1M [...]

When traveling, I like to have light versatile products to use when I am out and about touring. While I almost always carry some sort of bag or sack for souvenirs or goodies, they are not waterproof or do not offer a waterproof storage area. The Matador Droplet Wet Bag can solve that issue, it [...]

waterfield-vitesse

Messenger bags are my favorite style of everyday bag because they can pretty much hold everything but the kitchen sink you need them to. If you're as much of a fan of WaterField bags as I am, you'll be interested to know that WaterField has recently introduced their new Vitesse messenger bag. The bag is [...]

The German designed SOI bag light is a great idea for people who carry large gear bags, backpacks or tote bags. It's a 3 x 1 inch disc shaped LED flashlight that you keep in your bag. When you stick your hand in the bag to retrieve an item, special proximity sensors can tell when [...]

lifeworks-voyager-1

When I travel, I have several gadgets I bring with me. For the past few years I have been using a beat-up backpack I purchased a decade ago, before tablets and smartphones were commonplace. While my old backpack got the job done, it wasn't built to organize and contain today's modern devices. I'd been looking [...]

McKaba-shelfpack-1

Whenever my family and I go on vacation we run into the same problem; there is never enough room in the hotel dresser to store all of our clothes. There are four of us and we usually end up "fighting" over who gets enough drawers. Inevitably, clothes end up scattered in drawers, in suitcases, and [...]

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 [...]

I frequently find myself working around my house, trying to do an adequate impersonation of a handyman. I firmly believe for every job there is the right tool, but recently I discovered a tool that may be right for every job. The Coolbox is a toolbox for the modern handyman. It features two built-in marine [...]
