HEX Convertible Laptop Briefcase review

By: Greg Carter
on Thursday, September 4th, 2014

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 veryRead More…

Naneu UrbanGear U60 Camera Backpack review

By: Mark Rosengarten

Posted in: Bags, Camera Gear, Reviews

I love photography.  There is seldom a moment when I am not at work and there isn’t a camera in my hand.  Like all photographers, I go through camera bags like crazy.  What works for one application somehow doesn’t seem to work for another.  I have used such camera bags as the Billingham Hadley ProRead More…


Booq Boa Shift Laptop Backpack review

Posted in: Bags, Reviews, Travel Gear

My wife told me I had to get rid of it.  I have used this one backpack for every family vacation for the past 10 years and more trips than I can recall.  Half the zippers don’t work anymore, and there are holes in several of the pockets.  But it was my go-to bag, withRead More…


Everki Atlas checkpoint friendly laptop adaptable business backpack review

on Sunday, December 29th, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

There are a lot of laptop bags and packs out there, but not all of them can effectively organize and carry lots of gear in a streamlined, compact package.  As a long-time messenger bag user, I’ve not had much interest in backpacks until my business travel picked back up this past year, and lugging aRead More…


Blue Flame “The Pack” review

on Saturday, December 21st, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

As our devices have shrunk in recent years, so, too, have carrying cases. Sling bags, messenger bags, and even the trusty backpack are slimmer, more focused on those slimmer devices, and more attuned to organization and ease of access, rather than capacity. Blue Flame, a fairly new entrant into the market place, has developed anRead More…


Case Logic SLR Camera Backpack review

on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Camera Gear, Reviews

The Case Logic SLR Camera Backpack from Case Logic aims to provide a roomy and safe place for your SLR (digital or otherwise) camera, and (based on the insides) enough lenses to shoot a wedding, football game, and several other events. You’ll likely be able to squeeze in a digital video recorder and a few point-and-shootsRead More…

Altego 17″ Polygon Sunfire Backpack review

Posted in: Bags, Reviews, Travel Gear

A laptop backpack is a laptop backpack is a laptop backpack, right? So, how do you distinguish yourself from the pack? I mean simple design and materials do not cut it anymore; you need to have useful features and things that make folks say “that’s a great idea” or “why didn’t someone think of thatRead More…


Tom Bihn Synapse 25 Backpack review

on Friday, August 9th, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

We’re all in search of the perfect gear bag, right?  Well, maybe not all of us, but a lot of us.  Keen to this quest, Tom Bihn has been designing and manufacturing (in the USA) several growing lines of products for gear-hauling, travel, organization, and other similar needs since 1972.  Tom Bihn recently up-sized itsRead More…


iSafe Bags Urban Crew Backpack with built-in Alarm Review

on Friday, May 3rd, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

Most of us have alarms to make us feel protected in our house, our cars, and we have seen or heard them in public places, such as a mall or store. What about the times that you are walking in a new area that is unfamiliar?  Or have a child that is walking to andRead More…


The Boreas Gear Erawan Travel Duffle mini-review

on Monday, April 1st, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

Occasionally, members of the Gadgeteer Team receive products out of the blue, sent by eager PR people proud of their product(s), hopeful that we will take a look at them and comment on and/or review them on the website. Many times it is the umpteenth smartphone case or something just as lack-luster, but occasionally it is fromRead More…


Everki Versa Premium Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack review

on Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

Because I am a doddering, forgetful fool, I finally realized that to avoid forgetting any item or its accessory, I need to carry everything with me. And I mean everything. iPhones, iPods, iPad, earphones and headphones (I AM a reviewer, after all) and all the junk that has to go with this stuff. It canRead More…


Nomadic Wise-Walker CB-01 backpack review

on Saturday, November 10th, 2012
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

“A place for everything and everything in its place” – Samuel Smiles, Isabella Beeton, Benjamin Franklin? Isn’t coincidence a funny thing?  My wife had to go on a work trip for a few weeks and asked if we had a small backpack she could use while she was away.  Now I’m a messenger sort ofRead More…

Ogio Renegade RSS Backpack Review

By: Mark Adkins
on Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I am a bag-aholic. Somewhere deep in my reptile brain I seem to be convinced that if I find just the right bag, I can get perfectly organized and my life will make sense. OK, so far that has never happened, but the Ogio Renegade RSS backpack has come closer to my ideal than anyRead More…


OGIO Squadron RSS Backpack Review

on Monday, March 5th, 2012
Posted in: Bags, Reviews

The OGIO Squadron RSS backpack (reactive suspension system – more on that later) is, as you can see in the photo above, a beast of a bag. You can put a lot of stuff into it, and thanks to all the various pockets and compartment, all that stuff will stay put. There’s a dedicated sectionRead More…


Tenba Discovery Large Photo/Laptop Daypack Review

Posted in: Bags, Camera Gear, Reviews

Recently, photography has been picking up popularity in both the amateur and professional sectors.  As an amateur photographer, I always love to carry my Sony NEX-5 DSLR around with me when I go out exploring NYC or traveling.  I wanted a bag that can protect my camera, lens, and accessories and also have room forRead More…
