I generally like things simple, functional and cool-looking. I am also a fan of bags for carrying all my gadgets and gear.  I've tried out a lot of bags for various purposes over the years and I'm sure I'll try out many more. Although used messenger-type shoulder bags for many years and have recently switched over [...]

TenbaDNA13 - 1

Photography tools have changed considerably over the past fifteen years. Used to be, you had to have a large camera body, many varied lenses, and dozens of filters, flashes, and meters to capture the perfect photo. True photogs shot on film, so there needed to be a place to hold unexposed rolls and exposed rolls. [...]

After my first child was born I went out and purchased a DSLR camera. My wife and I weren't impressed with the pictures our pocket camera was taking and wanted to properly document the childhood of Earth's future ruler. After my second child was born, we purchased extra batteries and memory cards. We needed the [...]

betabrand-underthejackpack

Look, I like big ol', voluminous backpacks for hauling my gear as much as the next Gadgeteer. But sometimes you only need to carry minimal gear and want to be subtle and stealthy, like a gear ninja. For those missions, the crowdfunded Betabrand Under-the-Jack Pack might be essential. Betabrand designed this ultra-slim backpack to literally [...]

We all have things that we need to carry around to accomplish our daily tasks, and if you are a gadget lover you end up with a lot of collected devices to carry around too. One of my fellow Gadgeteers, Dave Rees, has reviewed several of the Colonel Littleton leather bags for men and now [...]

What do you get when you cross a traditional messenger bag with high-end camera bag features and user customization options? You get the Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag which was an insanely successful Kickstarter project from earlier this summer which brought in more than 4.8 million dollars in pledges. If that number made you look [...]

kanzek-slim-safe-portfolio-1

I enjoy using leather products because of their beauty and durability. Recently I had the opportunity to review Waterfield's Cozmo 2.0 laptop leather bag. It was a very well made, wonderful laptop bag but a little too spacious for my personal preferences. I recently received the Kanzek Slim Safe Portfolio to review. I discovered that it is a [...]

wolffepack-metro-1

As a collector of all things gadget, I often find myself in need of a great backpack to help organize my devices while on the go. Recently, I was given the opportunity to review an extremely unique backpack, the WolffePack Metro. What sets the Metro apart from other backpacks is its ability to temporarily detach [...]

I used to carry a backpack when traveling. Everywhere. I had decided that with the two laptops I used for demos (a Mac and a Windows machine, before the days of Intel Macs and virtual machines!), their chargers, hard drives for content and backup of presentations for the products I was training on, a single-shoulder [...]

Each day I receive at least 100 emails pitching me ideas for products to write about on The Gadgeteer. I delete most of those emails seconds after opening them because there is nothing interesting about another iPhone bumper case, screen protector or a Kickstarter campaign for a selfie stick that includes a bottle opener. But [...]

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 [...]
