Bags

Bolstr-8

I am a bagoholic.  I have two closets filled with bags from waist packs, day bags, shoulder bags to camera backpacks.  Some of them date back a ways...I still have and use both a Roadwired Pod and Podzilla!  I am always on the lookout for that next bag that will hold what I need when [...]

genius pack hardside21-03

I avoid checking bags in while flying whenever possible.  Additional bag fees?  No, it's the hassle of waiting for checked bags at the carousel, the risk of lost luggage, and the tendency to overpack.  I tend to travel with lots of loose items (charging cables, wall warts, adapters), so what if I could find a [...]

waterfield-cozmo2-1

Backpacks and messenger bags have become our preferred everyday carry bags. But what happens when you need something a little more business-like? Waterfield's newly updated Cozmo 2.0 laptop bag seems to be the type of bag that would be useful in a business setting. While reviewing the bag, I found that it is even more [...]

Incase-ReformSling1

After several weeks of using the new Incase Reform Sling bag, I am conflicted by its unique design, its great organizational features, and its limitations because of the above.  The Reform sling bag was specifically designed to hold the new 12” MacBook.  While I do not have one of these MacBooks (I have a 13.3” [...]

Messenger bags are my favorite style of gear bags. I've been carrying one for years. They are great because they are roomy enough to hold a lot of gear. But for those times when you don't need to carry everything but the kitchen sink, they can be a little too spacious. The Setgo Jump Jet [...]

tuo-tuo-1

A few weeks ago, I introduced you to the TUO, a travel organizer designed to save space and make packing easier. Since then, I've had the opportunity to travel and test the TUO for myself. Will it ease the frustrations of travelers everywhere or is it a Kickstarter campaign full of empty promises? In case [...]

cozmo2

I can't believe it's been 13 years since I reviewed the original WaterField Cozmo bag. I carried that bag for a couple of years and then Jeanne carried it for a few more. I still have it somewhere in my magic closet o'bags and I bet it still looks just as good as it did [...]

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a weekend warrior, chances are that you use something to carry your gear around. And that means everything from a school backpack to a duffle bag, to yes, I've seen it, a grocery bag. But I'm not going to criticize how you carry your stuff, to each their [...]

The Whipping Post roll top backpack is a nice looking bag reminiscent of days gone by. This backpack is made of brown polished leather with a vintage look and feel that reminds me of walking to school a hundred years ago. The rustic bag is large enough to hold a laptop along with your daily gear. Let’s take a [...]

ibackpack-ibackpack-1

We live in a world where there is a gadget for everything. Need extra power, get a power bank. Need portable internet, use a hotspot. Always losing your things, grab a Bluetooth tracker. Do you like music on the go, get a Bluetooth speaker. Imagine if there was a device that could do all that? [...]

Backpacks are a must have accessory when hiking and camping. They are constructed to let you easily transport all your important gear while exploring the great outdoors.

A few weeks ago, I went on an exciting road trip cross country to move my sister from Nebraska to Washington. I had to fly back and then ride with her and my mother in a full car, and I knew I could not bring a big backpack full of stuff like I normally do, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
