ChiqueFabrique-iphone-6-6-Plus-cases-2

I'm in love with the embossed red leather iPhone pouch and cross-body phone pouch from ChiqueFabrique.  This Etsy shop, which ships worldwide from Gilbert, Arizona, makes beautiful, simple phone cases and bags.  The cross-body phone pouch (top and bottom left) measures 8" X 5", so it should fit even the biggest phones, including the iPhone 6 [...]

This post is brought to you by eBay. All opinions are 100% mine. My daughter started college this year, and we've discovered the type of backpack she used in high school isn't working for her new environment.  In high school, she needed a giant bag to carry a ton of books.  She also had a [...]

phorce1

The Phorce Pro is a briefcase that converts into a backpack or messenger bag. That in itself is not unique; we've seen numerous bags that have this ability to convert from one form to another. What sets the Phorce Pro apart from those bags is that it has a built in rechargeable 26,000 mAH lithium-ion [...]

Altego Lunar Mirror Messenger-1

I have always had a fascination with messenger bags, but have never found one that fit my needs. I love the roominess of messenger bags but I hate the lack of compartment separation and a secure location for my laptop or iPad. The Lunar Mirror Messenger from Altego has a solution for my problem. Note: [...]

HEX Front View

I can work anywhere, as long as I have my laptop computer. Sure, with cloud access I can manage pretty well with just a smartphone - and even better with a tablet - but the laptop still makes it much easier to work and store or access everything I need. Therefore, I rarely travel very [...]

I don't even like backpacks, but the Ruck Sack from Loyal Stricklin is so lovely to look at that I can picture myself hiking picturesque trails with it strapped on my back. These bags are handmade in a studio which is located in an historic train depot in Alabama. The ruck sack is made of [...]

bolster-bag-for-men-2

Men seem to like to carry lots of stuff in their pockets, and sometimes they have too much stuff and need a bag.  But many men have aversions to bags that are much smaller than a laptop bag or to bags that don't look like they can be carried into war.  Sometimes neither of those [...]

HOBOROLL

Being in the travel business, I seem to find myself on the road more and more. Packing for long trips is fairly easy: I pull out the large suitcase, pack it up, and go. Packing for a short day trips or even short tours on my longer travels can be a real hassle. I tend [...]

modernindustry-linkbackpack

To me the best backpack designs are simple and streamlined, like the Link backpack from Modern Industry.  Its slim, rectangular shape allows vertical stacking of contents to keep the load close to the wearer's body, while its lay-flat zipper design opens wide for easy loading and unloading of its 21 L capacity. (In fact, these [...]

OgdenBag 11

I must admit. I really like having a bag. Whether a backpack, messenger bag, or sling bag. In high school I used three different backpacks in a school year. I own two large travel skate backpacks, both the same brand and model. I couldn't choose between the color designs so I bought both of them. [...]
